I see you drivin' 'round town with the girl I love
And I'm like, "Fuck you" (Ooh-ooh-ooh)
I guess the change in my pocket wasn't enough
I'm like, "Fuck you and fuck her too"
Said if I was richer, I'd still be with ya
Hah, now ain't that some shit? (Ain't that some shit?)
And although there's pain in my chest
I still wish you the best
With a "Fuck you" (Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh)

-- Fuck You, Ceelo Green

“Now a curse upon Because and his kin! May Because be accursed for ever! If Will stops and cries Why, invoking Because, then Will stops & does nought. If Power asks why, then is Power weakness. Also reason is a lie; for there is a factor infinite & unknown; & all their words are skew-wise. Enough of Because! Be he damned for a dog! But ye, o my people, rise up & awake!”

When you are for a loved one, making a priority can feel impossible. For your own and that of the person you love, it is a practical necessity and a key to endurance.

She looked like she was thinking deeply, and she was. And what she was pondering was this:

"How is it that a small but definitive segment of people can make a thoughtless or disparaging comment in a post or text, and then feel that they are absolved of the offense of insulting another by adding LOL at the end?"

One of modern life's unanswered questions . . .

It wasn't an event that happened once in a lifetime, or even once every number of years.

No, sunset happened every single night, all over the world, and was there for everyone to see.

But because it was so "common," too many people didn't take time to see it . . .

A Fart, tho' wholesome, does not fail,
If barr'd of Passage by the Tail,
To fly back to the Head again,
And, by its Fumes, disturb the Brain:
Thus Gunpowder confin'd, you know, Sir,
Grows stronger, as tis ram'd the closer,
But if in open Air it fires,
In harmless Smoke its Force expires.
