Friends – Promote Yourself

nice read

Why are we here, why do we walk on this earth? From the moment we come out of the womb we are left behind wondering why we are here.
As the young child looks to her mother for an answer to a question she doesn’t even know.
Her eyes gazing upon the beauty of her mother looking for a semblance to a reason to be in this place, even as a child we wonder why, what, how, and yet the answer still eludes us.
We get lies, conjecture, half-truths, and ideas on why we are put on this earth but still nobody knows, it is at this point that we begin to look for a friend to wander through life with. We ask the same questions, why and for what, the questions are many but the answers are very few.
Friends don’t come around very often, so when we do stumble…

Eleven Walks with Expert Eyes

majority of what is happening around
you. You are missing the events
unfolding in your body, in the distance,
and right in front of you.
By marshaling your attention to these
words, helpfully framed in a distinct
border of white, you are ignoring an
unthinkably large amount of information
that continues to bombard all of your
senses: the hum of the fluorescent
lights, the ambient noise in a large
room, the places your chair presses
against your legs or back, your tongue
touching the roof of your mouth, the
tension you are holding in your shoulders
or jaw, the map of the cool and warm
places on your body, the constant hum
of traffic or a distant lawn-mower, the
blurred view of your own shoulders and
torso in your peripheral vision, a chirp of
a bug or whine of a kitchen appliance.

Dumbest Laws from Around the World.


1. Kissing in Dubai.
States across the US have been known to have
some pretty stupid laws on the books, but
America isn’t the only one! Countries around the
world have their fair share of dumb laws, too!
Though Dubai has become a very modern city and
a hot tourist spot to visit, it still has some pretty
restrictive laws on the books. While it is okay to
wear a bikini on the beach now, be careful with
your public displays of affection. Kissing in public
in this city can land you up to a year in jail ! Even
holding hands isn’t tolerated. You can also get
arrested for swearing. And if you are traveling as
an unmarried couple, you’d better book two
rooms because staying in a hotel room with
someone you aren’t married to is also illegal.

The Road not Taken – Robert Frost – YOUR FAVOURITE POEM


Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
By Robert  Frost 1874–1963

THE FINAL GOODBYE: – Promote Yourself


Life’s journey was passing
There was little worth remarking
Then with certain misgivings
I recalled your leaving

Through a thick fog and mist
Surreal images appear best
The dreamy night was starlit
Our Goodbye was the hardest

Could never get over your going
Years went by, passing
In life, things keep on changing
But your memory is always lingering. ….

The day finally arrived: Forrest Gump dies and
goes to Heaven. He is met at the Pearly Gates by
Saint Peter himself. The gates are closed,
however, and Forest approaches the gatekeeper.
Saint Peter says, “Well, Forrest, it’s certainly good
to see you. We have heard a lot about you. I
must inform you that the place is filling up fast,
and we’ve been administering an entrance
examination for everyone. The tests are fairly
short, but you need to pass before you can get
into Heaven.”
Forrest responds, “It shore is good to be here
Saint Peter. I was looking forward to this. Nobody
ever told me about any entrance exams. Shore
hope the test ain’t too hard; life was a big
enough test as it was.”
Saint Peter goes on, “Yes, I know Forrest.


Deductive reasoning is a lot simpler than many
people realize. Just see if it isn’t:
Neighbor 1: “Hi, there, new neighbor, it sure is a
mighty nice day to be moving.”
New Neighbor: “Yes, it is and people around here
seem extremely friendly.”
Neighbor 1: “So what is it you do for a living?”
New Neighbor: “I am a professor at the University,
I teach deductive reasoning.”
Neighbor 1: “Deductive reasoning, what is that?”
New Neighbor: “Let me give you and example. I
see you have a dog house out back. By that I
deduce that you have a dog.”
Neighbor 1: “That is right.”
New Neighbor: “The fact that you have a dog,
leads me to deduce that you have a family.”
Neighbor 1: “Right again.”
New Neighbor: “Since you have a family I deduce
that you have a wife.”
Neighbor 1: “Correct.”
New Neighbor: “And since you have a wife, I can
deduce that you are heterosexual.”
Neighbor 1: “Yup.”
New Neighbor: “That is deductive reasoning.”
Neighbor 1: “Cool.”
Later that same day…
Neighbor 1: “Hey, I was talking to that new guy
who moved in next door.”
Neighbor 2: “Is he a nice guy?”
Neighbor 1: “Yes, and he has an interesting job.”
Neighbor 2: “Oh, yeah what does he do?”
Neighbor 1: “He is a professor of deductive
reasoning at the University.”
Neighbor 2: “Deductive reasoning, what is that?”
Neighbor 1: “Let me give you an example. Do you
have a dog house?”
Neighbor 2: “No.”
Neighbor 1: “Fag.”


Did you know that heaven and hell are actually
right next to each other? They are separated by
a big chain-link fence. Well, one day hell was
having a big party and it got a little out of hand.
God heard the ruckus and arrived to find his
fence completely smashed by the wild partiers.
He called the devil over and said
“Look, Satan, you have to rebuild this fence.”
Satan agreed.
The next day God noticed that the devil had
completely rebuilt the fence…but it was 2 feet
further into heaven than before.
“Satan!” beckoned God. “You have to take that
fence down and put it back where it belongs!”
“Yeah? What if I don’t?” replied the devil.
“I’ll sue you if I have to,” answered God.
“Sure,” laughed Satan. “Where are you going to
find a lawyer?”
