"You can have all the faith you want in spirits, and the afterlife, and heaven and hell, but when it comes to this world, don't be an idiot. Cause you can tell me you put your faith in God to put you through the day, but when it comes time to cross the road, I know you look both ways "Dr. Gregory House"

my grandfather(rest his soul) showed up at pearl harbor right after the attack. he was in the Navy. i can remember hearing a story of how in awe he was when he got there. he'd say, "there were so many bodies".......

Man I wish I still had my grandparents, I know my Gpa was in the Korean war but that's about it.

At its core, the Ninja ZX-10R is a motorcycle built for the accomplished rider who can fully appreciate its capabilities--whether put to the test at a racetrack, or merely the focus of bench-racing conversation. It is, by all standards, the embodiment of the ultimate superbike.

I come across old vets from time to time at work. Those guys kick ass. Different time, no crying and bs like today. I hope someday our generation is seen as a generation of ass kickers.
