This just puts a smile on my face :)
It's hard to be brave, especially in times where one is in danger. A robbery, for instance, could be very bad for any people willing to play "hero". Yet here comes this guy, Larry Skopnik, in a wheelchair to save the day. Truly amazing.

I love the message here. Sure, it was meant to be something for a popular FPS game, but you can take what you learn and apply it to life. Anyway, virtual reality still has "reality" :)
Thanks to Nerfnow for the pic.

but I believe that when a person who made a lot of people laugh through his work dies in a car crash, we need to pay our respects. Mr. Dunn was a mainstay for both the Jackass crew and the CKY crew, though I was never an avid fan of the latter(Didnt really watch Viva La Bam that much). As a regular viewer of Jackass, I saw the abuses he took in order to entertain us, and people may be thinking of how insane this person was, or how he was just a punk doing stunts. I saw someone dedicated to his work, and who was doing something meaningful in his life. So again, rest in peace Ryan Dunn, and thanks for the memories. :)

- Ocean Avenue, by Yellowcard :)
I just love how the ocean manages to cheer me up. It has a soothing and calming effect on me. Whether it be on a boat ride or a beach, the effect it has on me is always positive(Never mind the sunburn). This picture was taken from my rest house in the province. :)

This is a German word that basically means getting pleasure from the losses or misfortunes of others.
When Lebron James and "his" Miami Heat lost to the Dallas Mavericks in the finals, and blame was put on his disappearance in important situations, it sparked an emotional wave amongst the multitudes of people waiting on him to fall. This dates back to when he promised a championship for the Cleveland Cavaliers, then made a decision on national television that broke the hearts of a city, and caused other NBA fans to vilify him along with the other members of the so called "Big 3".
We have here a rare kind of player. On one hand, Lebron James manages to cheer people up with his talent, athleticism, and spectacular plays.On the other, we have a player who people absolutely love to hate, and through his losses, he cheers people up.
