Strangers Kissing

by getpaidb on March 12, 2014

Have you seen this video? It has gone viral and its pretty clear why. 20 people share a first kiss within a few minutes of meeting each other.  It was intended as an advertisement for a clothing company. Don’t worry, I don’t get the connection either. Check out the awkwardness and awesomeness that ensues:   […]

You Can Do It!

by getpaidb on February 2, 2014

In the spirit of the Super Bowl today, I have posted an inspirational video of Derrick Coleman, the first deaf offensive player in the NFL to make it to the Super Bowl. Yes, it is a commercial for Duracell, but the message is “powerful” nonetheless. Enjoy!

Alchemizing your life

by Pete on June 17, 2013

In various ancient texts, they speak of the study of alchemy. Most of us have heard of alchemy as a magical process of turning lead into gold. On the surface, that’s all that alchemists do. We see it as impossible so we dismiss it as nonsense. It may be true that lead can’t magically turn […]

Friday Fortune: You are the creation of yourself.

by Pete on June 14, 2013

Today’s Friday Fortune may seem less cryptic and more “highway motivation.” On the surface it may seem like something a hippie might tell you while handing you a flower in the park. Let’s start with a little abstraction. “I think, therefore, I am.” ~Rene Descartes Descartes’ famous saying acknowledged that the only reality we can […]

Friday Fortune: Resistance is futile

by Pete on June 7, 2013

It’s easier to resist at the beginning than at the end. Of course it is. This fortune can be interpreted in two ways. First we need to look at whether it’s “good resistance” or “bad resistance.” The good kind of resistance would be referred to as will power. We put up resistance when we know […]

Fulfill Your Desires or Else Be Traumatized!

by Pete on May 6, 2013

Have you ever noticed a dog shudder? Almost all mammals, including us humans, will shudder from time to time. Shuddering is not just a random body movement. Actually, there are very few “random” body movements. Almost everything we do has an important purpose. Sneezing and coughing expel germs from our bodies, yawning helps bring oxygen […]

The International Day of Idleness

by Pete on May 3, 2013

Yesterday was a huge holiday, I’m sure you missed it. It was The International Day of Idleness. Yes, that’s a real thing. In 1966 in Argentina, The World Tramps Congress (also a real thing) named May 2nd as the International Day of Idleness as a response to May 1st being Labor Day. Essentially, it’s a day […]
