"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."
For the record, that quote is from Maya Angelou, an American poet, memoirist and very important figure in the American Civil Rights Movement.
I feel it is important to state who it is from, to separate myself from the masses who have inevitably at one point or another come across this quote and have been unable to resist sharing it with anyone and everyone until the next fad overwhelms them.
Anyway, for this clip, the quote works!

I don't believe in Karma - well not in the way most people do, ie, you do a bad thing and it will come back and bite you on the backside.
I do wish bad Karma on others though, usually when I'm driving - be honest, who doesn't!
After seeing this, I'm not so sure.
Apparently this clip went crazy and in the top ten most watched YouTube vids last year. I've only just come across it and felt that I had to share - why is it 18+ though?
I'll be honest, I see people either talking or texting on the phone whilst driving and it always pisses me off.. usually because they don't thank me for giving way or because they cut corners or speed through a changing light whilst I'm in the opposite lane waiting to turn right!
This is where the Karma (or lack of the instant variety) thing comes in. They could leave a trail of destruction in their wake and would be totally oblivious to it, because their attention is elsewhere.
Now, I'll be pissed at them because they could do what happens in this vid.
By the way, the full 30 minute version was on BBC iPlayer until today. It showed how the girls got to be in the car at that particular time (including an earlier breathaliser test - driver was clear).
It also shows the aftermath - Police telling parents of their child's deaths, driver's family being ostracised, that sort of thing.
It's deeply unpleasant, but rivetting all the same.
If I can find the full 30 minute version on the net, I'll post it, otherwise, it's called, appropriately enough "Cow".

Well Mr Da Vinci, that may be the case, but I tell you, I'm right about this one thing... I have an almost genius ability to read people's faces.

This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.
Well firstly, see this video that demonstrates that President Obama is really a robot and therefore controlled by shadowy figures in the background!
