You know more about yourself than you know about anyone else. You might know more about yourself than you know about everyone else put together. But how well do you know yourself, rather than know about yourself? That is, how well do you understand yourself rather than just know facts and details about yourself, why you are who you are and why you do the things you do, rather than just what you are and what do you tend to do? The former, most will probably find much more challenging to articulate, despite a lot of information available to the latter that is like data to support the former, but that may be difficult to interpret to articulate the former.
After the San Diego Chargers’ semi-epic NFL comeback last night from 21 points down, several times, on the road against the San Francisco 49ers, Frank Reich once again became associated with a monumental comeback! It was only semi-epic because in Reich’s past, he had orchestrated 31 and 32 point comebacks, victimizing his latest success. 🙂
GISHWHES, or The Greatest International Scavenger Hunt The World Has Ever Seen!, is a global community of individuals (94 countries and growing!) that “gather” online once a year, form international teams, and then go out into the real world and create “art” the likes of which the world has never seen.
One of the things that come from this is people reaching out to other people. New friendships, or just Facebook friendships, are born as a result. I think they should award a point for every one new friend made. Cap it at something like 50 and have people document it somehow. It’s not a lot of points, and probably hardly even worth the effort. However, it’s an easy 50 points and the true value lies in reiterating to people that they just made 50 new friends because of the contest!
There might be a Guiness World Record in there somewhere, too, I’d bet, if the documentation is done reasonably well enough. Helps earn and validate the points.
Don’t you think that’s worth the 50 points?
Montreal Alouettes quarterback Anthony Calvillo broke the all-time professional football passing yard records on today, passing Damon Allen who had 72,381 yards. The Montreal and Quebec presses, of course, is playing it all up with articles like how Calvillo is the best and all with articles like this (Montreal Gazette).
But why do they even bother having such a pretentious award considering the Canadian Football League (CFL) is basically a minor league for the National Football League (NFL)? Continue reading
This is a new type of Facebook tagging, and one that could get you in a lot of trouble, too! 🙂
It’s not because this Facebook tagging is “inappropriate” with language, images or topic. No. It’s because this is going to bruise some egos!
It’s meant for judgmental people so if that’s you, and you’re not afraid to bruise some egos, then go for it! The trade off is that you’ll also praise some people, like giving them an award, so you can also win some favours!
In this Facebook tagging, you have to decide who are your 10 most athletic Facebook friends and tag them.
Those 10 are going to be happy. Those who felt they could have been in the top 10 based on who they saw you tag, cause they thought they were more athletic than at least one of those tagged, won’t! Depending on their personalities, they’ll react in a variety of ways, some of which won’t be pleasant.
Do you think you can handle that? If so, then let’s get on with it!
