My great grandma went from covered wagons to moon landings. It’s cool to see how far we go.


Well if you were born in the late 90s you should try to make it to the year 2100 at least. That way you can say that you lived in 3 centuries.


Someone on Reddit who I don’t remember once put it like this: Life is a day at the fair. When you’re a kid, you’re excited to go to the fair and you go and do your thing. Maybe you’re too scared to ride some rides. Maybe you spend all your time in line at one and it stinks. Maybe you find one you love and go on it 10 times in a row. The day is long and eventful. It could be really fun or scary or just plain suck. But there’s no way for you to imagine at the beginning of the day just how tired you’ll be at the end and ready to go home. I think what the person who said that left out is: Some of us are ready to go home much sooner than others.




I almost was killed twice while serving in the Marines. I was so scared the first time I pissed my pants. I deserve a few extra years for that.
