Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

It’s one of those days. Buckle up.

I’ve got little teenagers on my Facebook profile posting this quote:

“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.” – Marshall Mathers a.k.a Eminem

A couple of things with that;

a) Contrary to what you think you know, Eminem did not say that. It’s a quote by Winston Churchill. You know, the British Prime Minister?

b) With all due to respect to Churchill, this is one of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard. Having enemies means you stood up for something; why do people always assume that’s a good thing? Hitler had enemies, so did the Ku Klux Klan, and they seriously stood up for what they believed in.
