You see a post with over a thousand notes? Heart the fuck out of that shit. B/c when they come, knocking down doors, looking for the dude who didn’t heart the fuck out of that? “Wasn’t me, Cap’n.” Also: “Can I get you a Gatorade, or something?”

always check your shoes
The battered sneakers that I wear most every day, two pairs, have come to resemble each other so much in battered-ness that I wore one of each yesterday without even noticing, which resulted in not so much chagrin as it was an effed up lower back with left me wondering what in the hell could cause so much damage to my formerly sturdy back?

China is doing moon shots. Yes, that’s plural. When I say “moon shots” I mean big, multibillion-dollar, 25-year-horizon, game-changing investments. China has at least four going now: one is building a network of ultramodern airports; another is building a web of high-speed trains connecting… Ting.

DC Women Kicking Ass -1971 Edition

(I’d sure like 100 pages for $.50). I myself only have twenty or thirty gimmicks.
