LIsten up Motherfuckers

There once was a woman named Peace Pilgrim.

From the Website:

From 1953 to 1981 a silver haired woman calling herself only "Peace Pilgrim" walked more than 25,000 miles on a personal pilgrimage for peace. She vowed to "remain a wanderer until mankind has learned the way of peace, walking until given shelter and fasting until given food." In the course of her 28 year pilgrimage she touched the hearts, minds, and lives of thousands of individuals all across North America. Her message was both simple and profound. It continues to inspire people all over the world:

Not from the Website (But true):

Then one day while Peace Pilgrim was walking to the next town to share her message of world peace....A person accidentally ran over peace pilgrim.

Again not from the website (But truest):

So? My Point? No matter how bad a day, week, month or even year you are having. At least you are not the poor asshole who has to live with running over Peace Pilgrim. Quit being a baby and stop bitching!

When am I getting a divorce?

I was watching and Interview with Marissa Mayer who is Vice President of Search Products and User Experience with Google. She was asked a question by Mr. Charlie Rose about the ownership of information. You all may remember the recent uproar regarding Facebooks declaration that they own all your stuff. This is when Ms. Mayer said something that astounded me; Some specific credit card company knows with 80% accuracy who is going to get a divorce 2 years before the cardholders themselves. I am pretty sure it was 80%. I know it was higher than 70%. Ms. Mayer explained that the whether a person is to stay married greatly affects their ability to pay off debt and therefore affects their credit rating. I wonder who they could sell this information to. Divorce attorneys/ Counseling Services. I can see it now. You get a free pen in the mail from Dr. Staytogether's counseling service offering help for your pending divorce that you do not know about yet but with 80% accuracy will happen in 1.5 years. Amazing.
