Saying "no one cares" is messed up. Because is you say that, someone has complained to you. If someone has complained to you, someone cares.
Microsoft just laid off 18,000 workers. (Read the article here.) No surprise. Microsoft hasn't been doing so well. But what's funny is how Microsoft puts it. The Microsoft Device Head put it,
"It is particularly important to recognize that the role of phones within Microsoft is different than it was within Nokia," he wrote. "Whereas the hardware business of phones within Nokia was an end unto itself, within Microsoft all our devices are intended to embody the finest of Microsoft’s digital work and digital life experiences, while accruing value to Microsoft’s overall strategy."
Seriously? You planned a layoff of 18,000 workers? Ok, maybe Microsoft did. But in my opinion, the real reason is that they are trying to cut costs, which is a good thing. Microsoft seems to make itself all-knowing.
Imagine a world without music. For one, you would not have to practice the instruments you dislike practicing. For another, however, Disney's Frozen would be a flop, Mozart and Beethoven would probably be like Picasso, and the ABC's would not have a tune to it. Which leads to the point--music is powerful. Music stirs our emotions, whether good or for bad. Music is a work of art, just like a book, a movie, or a pianting. Music influences the way our brain looks at things.
Animating takes time. A lot of time. Pixar movies can take 4 to 7 years to animate. Animating an episode of Family Guy takes two to three weeks. That's with dozens of people on the job. Yet, how long is the average Pixar movie? An hour? Two hours, maybe? How long is a tv episode? 20-30 minutes? So much time and energy put into a movie that is only an hour long. An hour of entertainment? Years of work.

"Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear." ~Ambrose Red Moon
At first glance, the quote seems true enough. But if at another glance, the quote makes you wonder, what is courage? The world seems to believe courage is the absence of all fear. Ambrose Red Moon believed differently. Who is right? Comment on whom you think is right and why you think that way.
Do we sometimes have fears that seem "silly" to other people? Are some fears irrational? As Christians, we shouldn't have any reason to fear, but we do need to practice common sense. At least not all doctors are like this one...
The title says it all. You must watch the entire match to catch all the humor. This is an actual match, between Belgium’s Jean-Michel Saive and China’s Chuang Chih-yuan. Chuang took an early lead, so Jean-Michel decided to goof off. Chuang decided to play along. This was one of the top Youtube videos, with more than 8 million views. But, of course, as Youtube goes, this was quickly buried by new popular videos.
Life isn't fair. The quote is everywhere and used by everyone. Every "That's not fair" is met with a "Life isn't fair." But the way we use "Life isn't fair" has a flaw. When someone says, "That's not fair," they want change. They want someone to make the unfairness fair. We use "Life isn't fair" as an escape from dealing with the unfairness. We use "Life isn't fair" like the quote alone resolves the issue. We use "Life isn't fair" in a way that is not fair, a way that is not fair at all. We all know life isn't fair. But life doesn't have to stay that way.
Change is unchangeable. You can't hide change, or escape change. Change will always reveal itself, will always find you. You can't predict change, or stop change. Change is sudden, and when it happens, it happens. But although you can't hide change, escape change, predict change, or stop change, you can always still create change.
