Galileo Galilei 1564

Galilei Galileo :) | Creative thinkers, Art videos, Natural philosophy

“We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves.”

*Who can you help discover something within themselves today?

What can you help them discover?

Susan B. Anthony Project promotes safety, healing, and growth for all survivors of domestic and sexual abuse and advocates for the autonomy of women and the end of interpersonal violence.

*Susan B. Anthony wouldn’t live to see her dream of women’s suffrage but the project in her name can continue to help women. Think of donating to this cause on her birthday.

“Helen, we’re both in sales.  Let me tell you why I SUCK as a salesman.”

Tommy gets on the same level with a waitress, convincing her to bring him chicken wings. Richard commends Tommy for his ability to read people, for getting inside Helen’s head and telling her what she wanted to hear, when she needed to hear it.

*Watch Tommy Boy to learn how to make sales by getting on the same level with people.

*Make this Krusty burger and enjoy it while watching Tommy Boy and a few episodes of The Simpsons. It’s probably on FXX right now. Hey Hey!

I’m grateful that I live in Orlando and can go to Universal Studios to eat a real deal Krusty Burger on this day.


BONUS: Jaromir Jagr 1972

  • When once told that he, and not the Dos Equis guy, is The Most Interesting Man in the World, Jagr replied, “I don’t always drink beer but when I do I drink Corona.”
  • His name — and, presumably, his game — inspired Brix City Brewing of Bergen County, New Jersey, to create Jaromir Lager, a “Bohemian-style Pilsner.”

*If you can’t get your hands on a Jaromir Lager, have a Corona for a nightcap tonight.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
