Everyday stresses can build up and hang around in the back of our minds so that even when we have free time to relax and unwind, we find ourselves stressed out about all the little things that are bugging us. So today I would like to invite everyone to let go of all their frustrations and, as part of the cleansing process, tell us about the stuff that’s been driving you crazy

What is the meaning of life ? Why are we here? What is the answer to life, the universe , everything? Have you ever asked yourself these questions? Quite probably you have. Whether you were having some kind of crises in your life, or you just like exploring your own inner existentialism, the need to know, or at least feel better, about our existence is one that has plagued mankind since the beginning of time. At least, I assume it has. It sure as hell messes with my mind. You might be thinking that I am going through a crises, since I am obviously thinking about my existence. Well, I actually do enjoy thinking about my existence, and how it fits in with the big scheme of things. Do I have any answers? Of course not. I don’t believe in definite answers, at least where existence and the meaning of life are concerned.
For some unexplainable reason, surfing keeps finding its way into my life lately. I dreamt of surfing the other night. The following day, I sat down on the couch after straightening up our kitchen and the show Parenthood was ending by showing one of the show’s fathers sitting on a surfboard and smiling contently as he looked out to sea.
Karl Jo Seilern and Anton Waldburg, managing partners of theblogpaper.co.uk , seem to be swimming against the currents in the ever turbulent waters that are the publishing industry. While most print publications are moving more and more content online in order to reach an increasingly tech-savvy, internet-based and mobile readership, Seilern and Waldburg are taking blog content offline in the blogpaper–the UK’s first completely user-generated, free newspaper. When I asked the duo what the rationale was behind taking blog content offline and into print form, Waldburg told me it is simply a way to “fully satisfy the needs of a young readership.” Readers can access the blogpaper’s content online, but having a print edition gives readers another format choice and extends the reach of the blogger past online consumers to those who prefer a more traditional reader experience.
I have a theory about how we ended up here on Mother-Ship Earth . After all, isn’t almost everything about our precarious futures just a tad too ominous, seemingly set into a pattern of continuous lucid movement? What if every one of us had originally decided to jump onto this moving planet we call Earth?
Yesterday, I read a post on freelancewritinggigs.com titled Google CEO Eric Schmidt not on board with bloggers . A major theme of the post was that while “writers” are respected “bloggers” are not. A more minor point in the post, but the one which I found quite interesting was that editors are a vital part of the publishing industry who ensure only quality material makes it to print….something that the blog world lacks: And if you’re ever confused as to the value of newspaper editors , look at the blog world
I go with Recon. M-95, extra ammo, binoculars, and that cool revolver I unlocked yesterday. Let’s do this. I drop down through the air, my parachute billowing and slowing my descent. I look down and notice a vacant tank, something Russian , like a T-90 or something, just waiting for someone to drive it. Unfortunately, another soldier, SuperPhat420 by his blue name hanging over his head, also notices it and starts steering his parachute towards it. Since he was quite a bit lower than me he gets there first. As he enters the tank its engine rumbles to life and he guns it. The big machine lurches forward, but I had timed it correctly and make it in just in time. I don’t mind not driving though. Gunning is preferable since, when the tank is inevitably destroyed, you can always blame it on the driver.
Last night, when I should have been asleep, I was up reading some random blog posts and checking out my friends posts on Facebook and friedeggs.com . During my late night browsing session, I came across a post by SelinaJane–one of my new best buddies –about 60 Cool & Creative 404 Error Pages .
We have a new Lightweight Champion! Frankie Edgar defeated BJ Penn with a unanimous decision victory over the former 155lb Champion. What? Unanimous decision? Hearing the scorecards after the fight, it was hard to believe that one of the judges didn’t give any rounds to BJ. The three judges scored the bout 50-45, 49-46, and 48-47. Frankie is an excellent wrestler. Those two take-downs definitely influenced the judges in Frankie’s favor.
In the United States when a child is born with a disability and is not wanted by their own parents, the child is sent to a foster home where the family is given training on how to care for the child. There are strict requirements and the children are generally well cared for. In other countries, Haiti, Turkey and Ukraine, for example, many times when a child is born with a disability (sometimes even a minor defect such as stunted growth to an extremity) the parents are counseled to institutionalize the child, often being told that they will not be able to care for the child, or that the child will die regardless of care
