Things Could Be Worse

My Dad always told me to compare myself to the best, not to the worst.

He gave me that sage advice based on advice given to him by my wise ol' Grandfather.

Today, as I take a short break from working late at my day job, I am ignoring that advice....

I always loved the song Shinobi vs. Dragon Ninja by the Lostprophets.

Ten years ago, the lead singer of the Lostprophets, Ian Watkins, was convicted of some heinous sexual offenses and sentenced to 29 years in jail. This past weekend, Ian Watkins was taken hostage, beaten and stabbed by some fellow inmates. According to the Mirror, if Watkins survives the day, "he'll have been very lucky."

So, as my inner voice screams at me to get back to work, I realize things could be worse in life.

<deep sigh>


That's it. I really don't have time for Beacon of Speech today. I am swamped.

How 'bout a funny meme?
