I’m all the time sending YouTube videos that may only have a relevant or specific part that I want to show someone. Instead of having to tell them where to skip forward to, it turns out to be pretty easy to set the video to start at that specific time instead.
#t=XmXs to the end of the url, replacing each X with the time you desire—the first X for the minute and second X for the second.
For example, if I were wanting to link to
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-ONhpNeWQA and wanted to show you the segment that starts at 28:40, the url would look like
At work at times, it feels like it’s easier for people to dismiss my views politically just because of the age difference with myself and those that tend to have that type of discussion. But I have found that by expanding what I know by reading, studying, and really digging into the historical facts and learning the whys behind certain aspects or events, I immediately gain quite a bit of respect when I let some of my knowledge flow during these types of debates/discussions. It’s not just having an opinion and sticking by it, but having facts and reasons that back up that opinion.
Heading up to Chattanooga for some belated birthday ribs from Sticky Fingers!
Chase & I just broke out the ole N64 and killed an easy 3 hours on Perfect Dark. That’s the longest I’ve played video games in years—tons of fun though!
I think that’s the best way to describe how I feel. I look forward to the weekends coming to then just to look forward to the work week coming. It’s a vicious cycle. I think it being Winter now plays into that a little bit, since I’m cold natured, there’s just not alot of things to do outside that is appealing. But all in all, I’m just burned out of life as it is.
I recently ran across something called the Trans-America Trail. It reads and looks like one of those adventures that fuels the fire inside of you to really live life. Basically it’s close to a month of seeing parts of the country, on roads that are the roads less traveled, and having the time of your life while doing so. This is exactly what the doctor has ordered. If my responsibilities are willing, I’m doing this, soon.
I just listened to the Mormon Missionaries for about 15 minutes in the cold, and in turn they listened to me about Ron Paul. Nice trade-off.
KC (aka Morris) wanted to join me for a quick photo today. He’s enjoying the day inside since it’s so cold out today.
Honestly, one of the greatest things about being a twin is the random conversations that take place after the initial “are y’all twins?” question. Today we had a conversation with an older couple while at lunch at Arby’s. They had to be the friendliest and most smiling people I’ve seen in Dalton in a very long time. They could not believe that we are 27, and likewise, it was amazing to us that he was 84 years old and seriously had the enthusiasm and energy of someone much much younger.
Truth is, I’m just lazy. It’s easier to smile than it is to frown.
I wanted to ask how long they had been married, because if I had a guess, it was near a lifetime and they seemed as in love now as they were a lifetime ago. That’s truly something to smile about.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. —
