Famous Oscar Wild quotation | Our Funny Planet No man is rich enough to buy back his past The world is a stage, but the play is badly cast I don`t like principles. I prefer prejudices One should always be in love. Life is never fair… An perhaps it is a good thing for most of us that it is not I can believe anything, provided that it is quite incredible Experience is the name everyone gives to his mistakes Humanity takes itself too seriously. Women are meant to be loved, not to be understood I am not young enough to know everything We are each our own devil, and we make this world our hell I can resist anything but temptation Life is much too important a thing ever to talk seriously about it Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them as much A kiss may ruin a human life I am always astonishing myself.

10 Phrases You Won’t Learn in Spanish Class I studied Spanish for years and taught it for several as well. The problem with formal education of a foreign language is you never get to learn the good stuff. Now that I am no longer on any education-related payroll, I can finally impart my knowledge of malas palabras en Castellano, Castellano being the type of Spanish spoken in Argentina. Remember, these are just for Argentina, many of these won’t have the same or any meaning in other Spanish speaking countries. Here are my top 10, use them carefully and have fun! Andáte a la mierdaLiteral translation: ”Walk yourself to the shit”. Photo by Jorge FarahLiteral translation: ”The slut/bitch that birthed you” Practical use: This is one of my all time favorites.

The Surprising Realities Behind What Motivates Us in Illustrated Form -... @Blueluck: Very true - I've seen other countries where people leave their family in another country to go find work, and then to manual labor for extremely cheap just to be able to send it all home to their family. I guess that could be interpreted as their purpose, but the work is not purposeful in and of itself. I guess "pay enough to take money off the table" covers that, so we're only talking about how to motivate people after they're at the comfortable level most Americans that read this blog are at. Interesting results in India, though. I believe there is a threshold that once you're paid a certain amount, you feel on top of things like you deserve it, so you don't work hard to move up further. If you take money completely off the table, or put the carrot completely away, there's not much to work for anymore. I think that's one reason government employees aren't known for super service. @Blueluck: Its completely subjective, is the answer.

Eight Types of Hecklers and the Comedians Who Shut Them Up In the 2007 documentary Heckler, Joe Rogan says that “the number one thing about hecklers is 100% of them are douchebags.” A stand-up comedian’s act depends on the audience reaction by nature, but when someone attempts to derail the performer’s work, well, that’s something a douchebag would do. Still, heckling creates exciting moments of discomfort for the audience, and hecklers have instigated some great moments in comedy (Bryson Turner’s comeback) as well as some terrible moments (Michael Richards incident). 1. Joe Rogan embraces hecklers like few other comedians, and his confrontation with this strange young woman is another drop in the bucket. 2. Rule #1: Always say yes. 3. They’re called servers, not waitresses. 4. Okay, this isn’t a stand-up clip, but the way Kevin Smith handles a guy who tells him his recent movies suck is worth watching. 5. 6. Kenny Moore has a temper. 7. Ari Shaffir integrates a belligerent female heckler into his act seamlessly. 8.

Why do mathematicians and high school teachers disagree Clever student: I know! Now we just plug in x=0, and we see that zero to the zero is one! Cleverer student: No, you’re wrong! which is true since anything times 0 is 0. Cleverest student : That doesn’t work either, because if then is so your third step also involves dividing by zero which isn’t allowed! and see what happens as x>0 gets small. So, since = 1, that means that High School Teacher: Showing that approaches 1 as the positive value x gets arbitrarily close to zero does not prove that . is undefined. does not have a value. Calculus Teacher: For all , we have Hence, That is, as x gets arbitrarily close to (but remains positive), stays at On the other hand, for real numbers y such that , we have that That is, as y gets arbitrarily close to Therefore, we see that the function has a discontinuity at the point . but when we approach (0,0) along the line segment with y=0 and x>0 we get Therefore, the value of is going to depend on the direction that we take the limit. that will make the function ! . as is whatever

People That Come Into Your Life. Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there... to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or help figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be but when you lock eyes with them, you know that every moment that you are with them, they will affect your life in some profound way. Sometimes things happen to you at the time that may seem horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection you realize that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential, strength, will power or heart. Everything happens for a reason! Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. The people you meet affect your life. Appreciate every moment and take from it everything that you possibly can, for you may never be able to experience it again.

Beyond Pink and Blue: A Look at Gender Colors It goes beyond culture. There is science behind the gender-relationships when it comes to colors. A study by John Hallock compares the color preferences among various demographics and takes into account information collected from 22 countries. Our friends at KissMetrics put together this informative infographic that tears down the gender barriers to reveal what really goes on in visualizations. Click any portion to enlarge. Colors by Gender The Color Purple - The most notable gender difference can be seen in the color purple. Blue Reigns Supreme – Both males and females like the color blue, which receives favor with 35% of female respondents and more than half of the male respondents. A Closer Look In 2007, Doctor Anya Hurlbert and Yazhu Ling created an experiment to explore how men and women differ in their perceptions of color.
