Wrecking Stuff.......

Caturday Might Have To Be Postponed......

So, The Doomsday Clock Is Moved To 3 Minutes To Midnight.....

Citing unchecked climate change and the ongoing threat of nuclear weapons, scientists Thursday moved the hands of the Doomsday Clock two minutes closer to midnight.
"It is now three minutes to midnight," said Kennette Benedict, the executive director and publisher of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists at a news conference in Washington, D.C. "The probability of global catastrophe is very high. This is about the end of civilization as we know it."

What Can We Expect To Hear At The State Of The Homeland Speech....?

Makes You Feel A Wee Bit Insignificant.....

Holy....... Shit.......

This is the description of the video on youtube:

I was blocked by two trucks on south bound I-95 at exit 9 in NJ (New Brunswick exit). I only wanted to take a picture while i was awaiting for them to clear up... And then I heard a noise from behind...I was barely missed.
***UPDATE (moved from the bottom of the description, since no one bothers to read it): Once I turned off camera, I called in 911 and reported the accident. After that, I came to the truck driver and the rest of the cars to verify they were alright. After arrival of NJ State Trooper and his dismissal confirming that he does not require my presence, I left the scene.

If Soylent Was In Command Of The British Royal Guards.....

Never Thought I Would See These Numbers... Bumped

 I Had posted this picture yesterday and for some reason it didn't show up on some computers?

This is in Southern NH.  Jeffery posted a pic below of cheaper prices and Angrymike commented

that he saw $1.59 a gallon in Ohio.

What are you seeing for prices around the country?

What Is Success?


Success is a very, very lonely road.

Very few people are willing to make the sacrifices and take the pain to be successful.

It’s an uphill battle and along that road, you’re not going to see too many friends.

You’re going to see your shadow most often. You gotta trust in the heart of hearts – inside that what you’re doing, what you believe in is a worthy cause and a winnable fight.

See, the thing is for many people – they’ve tried the same path that you’re on and they failed.

As you walk this journey you’re going to see carcasses of people that walked this place. People that didn’t quite have it… And that should inspire you because you got further than that person and that person. But you’re not looking to get further than them; you’re looking to finish.

But how do you know you’re on the right path?

Where do you go to ensure that?

You talk to your neighbor? No, you don’t talk to him. You say, “Hey man, I’m looking to lose some weight. I need some help”. He’s going to encourage you at first saying “Yeah you should, yeah you should” basically insulting your ass and your fat. It’s not support – it’s negative shit.

So you start to lose some weight, take some of his advice, you start to get in shape a little bit – maybe at his level now. Then he’s going to start asking questions, his tones’ going to shift as you get better. Then he’s going to start talking shit because what happens is – your success is like a spotlight shining down on their missed opportunities.

Success – many will love you for it.

The majority will hate you. Because your success makes them feel insufficient in their current endeavor. Reminds them of how they could’ve done it but came up short and didn’t revisit it, where they went at it and failed and didn’t revisit it again.

The difference between a winner and a loser – the failure is there every time, but the winner gets back up and does it again and again until it goes his way.

So now you’re on that path all alone… but how do you know you’re on the right path?
How do you know what you’re doing is the right way?

If you’re wondering if you’re on the right path – look at the small things in life. When you wash your car and you’re washing for a good hour and you put the hose and
everything away and come outside to look at the job you did and notice a spot you missed – what do you do?

Do you grab the hose and pull it all out and finish the job right or do you say “nah that’s good enough”? The thing about good enough is we don’t know about what good enough is. We don’t know until the nth hour, the final hour, when everything is on the line. That’s when we find out if that’s enough. And if we come up short –
man doesn’t that suck?

I promise you guys if you never say “good enough”, tomorrow you will always have enough. It’s the character of who you are – it’s not the title that makes you, it’s not the success that makes you. It’s the character that defines the success and defines the fame and it starts right there.

Championships aren’t won in the theater of the arena. They are won in the thousands of hours of training and the 5 AM runs in the rain when everyone
else is sleeping. That’s where it’s won.

The heart of a champion is a light switch that’s always on – it doesn’t go on and off when someone’s watching – it’s constant.

It’s how you look at something if your name is attached to it – that you do it right – every single time. If you’re dusting your counter tops – do you dust around the picture frame? Or do you dust the entire thing? Do the job right or don’t do it at all.

How you hold yourself in the small things in life build the character winning blocks of the things that we’re remembered for. They are one and one of the same. How you hold yourself and how you see yourself – what do you do when no one’s watching? If you do it then, I guarantee you – you’ll be doing it when everyone is watching.
