A Man Sat Alone

And a man sat alone...
Drenched deep in sadness
And all the animals drew near to him and said:
We do not like to see you so sad
Ask us for whatever you wish and you shall have it.

The man said I want to have good sight.
The vulture replied: "You shall have mine."
The Man said: "I want to be strong."
The jaguar said: "You shall be strong like me."
The Man said: "I long to know the secrets of the earth."
The serpent replied: "I will show them to you."
And so it went with all the animals.
And when the man had all the gifts they could give; he left.

Then the owl said to the other animals: "Now the man knows much and is able to do many things. Suddenly I am afraid."
The deer said: "The Man has all that he needs.
Now his sadness will stop."

But the owl replied: "No. I saw a hole in the man.
Deep like a hunger he will never fill. It is what makes him sad and what makes him want. He will go on taking and taking. Until one day the world will say: "I am no more and I have nothing left to give."

Get Off The Phone. Your Kids Will Never Forgive You

Heavy cell phone use tied to poorer sperm quality

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Spending hours on a cell phone each day may affect the quality of a man's sperm, preliminary research suggests.

In a study of 361 men seen at their infertility clinic, researchers at the Cleveland Clinic found an association between the patients' cell phone use and their sperm quality.

On average, the more hours the men spent on their cell phones each day, the lower their sperm count and the greater their percentage of abnormal sperm.

Are We There Yet?

Ah Britney. She's lost it. Dr. Drew says that we might have another Anna Nicole on our hands if we don't do anything. That paps are going to keep following her if we keep watching, and we'll keep watching if the paps keep following her. Vicious cycle that ends when...?

I'm just wondering if we can stop making fun of her now? I know we like seeing rich, successful people fail, but seriously?

Maybe not, just my humble opinion.
