        I am only seventy five percent sure this is real.

      Two:The Muslims successfully take the world through one of the most unfair methods, breading like rabbits, and science goes to a crawl

      First one, people wake up and stop one of the arguably worst religions to have its extremist dominating the world's politics. Unlikely.
    4. GreatGranpapy
      Just watched a video on the rise of the Muslim population. Scary stuff. I have three predictions on the outcome.

      Kind of upsetting to have your own father deny your philosophy.

      He said without religion he has no reason to just go outside on a killing spree.

      Just told my father I didn't wanted to go to church because I don't believe in God. He basically said you will be of strong faith to me.

      Yay, my Birthday. Woo.

      Any way; school's out. Oooraa.

      Man, I never use this thing, considering my last update was, "Going to bed." One of those moments you go, "Why did I do that?"
    11. GreatGranpapy
      Going to bed.

    On February 14th, 1990, Voyager 1 took this picture of Earth from more than 4 billion miles away. The horizontal strokes visible on the image are light rays from the sun. In a lecture in 1996, the same year as he passed away, Carl Sagan shared his thoughts on this picture. Undoubtedly the most inspiring and insightful description to ever accompany an image of the Earth, and I couldn’t agree more:
    That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there — on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors, so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light.

    Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand. It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known



    When King Lear dies on Act V, do you know what Shakespeare has written? He's written "He dies." That's all, nothing more. No fanfare, no metaphor, no brilliant final words. The culmination of the most influential work of dramatic literature is "He dies." I takes Shakespeare, a genius, to come up with "He dies." And yet every time I read those two words, I find myself overwhelmed with dysphoria. And I know it's only natural to be sad, but not because of the words "He dies." but because of the life we saw prior to the words.
    I've lived all five of my acts, Mahoney, and I am not asking you to be happy I I must go. I'm only asking that you turn the page, continue reading...and let the next story begin. And if anyone asks what became of me, you relate my life in all its wonder, and end it with a simple and modest "He died."

    Your life is an occasion. Rise to it.-Mr. Magorium
