Everything in perspective.

I was thinking I wasn't having the greatest day today. Then I saw this.



Thank you to failblog.org for always putting life in perspective for me. (And yes, I'm sure it's OLD and you've all seen it before. Too bad! It still makes me feel better.)

But why aren't you having a good day? Is this work related? A physical ailment, perhaps? Be careful when you drive home tonight.

Damn, sorry to hear that you are having a bad day. That video was funny at the least but at the same time that sucks for the officer haha.

Crotch rocket blasts bast them smokies!

YEE HAAA!!

Toyboxx said...

Everybody is entitled to having a bad day. But the video leaves alot of questions as to what was going through the drivers mind. Oh well, idiocy doesn't need any explaining.

Jeff, if you want a police-related video to really cheer you up, I suggest the following:

If you haven't seen this one, you're in for a real treat. All I can say is "step, bump, step, bump bump." Enjoy!

Here's a better youtube link:

(And, yes, there is debate as to whether this is real, fake, or from 'Reno 911!')

Oh fuck! That is funny!

Failblog is totally hilarious.

My nose hurts from having to stifle what would have been a hearty, near-hysterical laugh to a very painful, obnoxious, snore-ish snicker here at the office. I hate being professional. Wait, watching youTube at work isn't professional...?

I see where Reno 911 got its material from

hope you day gets better… try listening to happy music?

or visualization meditation? you shoulda learnt that at yoga class :D

how about a joke,
An elderly man was driving his Buick down the freeway when his cell phone rang.

Answering, he heard his wife's voice urgently warning him, "Herman, I just heard on the news that there's a car going the wrong way on 280. Please be careful!"

"It's not just one car," said Herman. "It's hundreds of them!"

Or how about this one:

A guy's on the train, heading into London.

The train comes to a stop at a station and the guy says to the two old ladies seated in front of him:

"Excuse me, but is this Wimbeldon?"

One of the old ladies immediately says: "No, it's Thursday."

And the other old lady says: "So am I. Let's go for a drink."

(Or how about this one: Why do males name their penises? - because they don't want a stranger making 95% of their decisions for them.)

Whoa, Green wrote on his ticker feed thing that he got moved over to a different team at E.A.

Which team?

It sounds kind of ominous. In five months he's been on 3 different teams. Why doesn't anybody want him?

Jeff, you can always go back to writing, you know - I mean, writing really is your chief strength. This game design thing is interesting. But personally I feel that your talents are kind of being wasted there at EA.

You're a writer. That's what you are.

Stephen said...

Bad day? Check out this video

Also kind of related to your previous blog about good music, too.

Pretty sure this video isn't just old...it's been around as long as Mr. Green. LMAO...rofl rofl...

Jeffrey, I'm concerned I haven't seen the "what you ate last night for dinner" section updated regularly enough. Either you have left over Thai food every day (which is just sad), or you're just too lazy to fill me on what's for dinner- again, sad.

And Groose, let's keep the lame jokes contained WITHIN Jeff Green's blog. K, thanks.

Yo yo yo! "The Brothers Karamazov"? That's deep. Hmm, thinking about the stress of your new, or newer position, would you ever read any business self-help books like "Communication Catalyst" or "The Tragedy in the Workplace"? I don't want to see you run off to Yugoslavia air guitaring Re-Education Through Labor. Hang in there man. (sings) We JUST survive, Ooh-on the crubs that you throwwwwww a-wayyyyy!

I thought that was going to be a lot worse. But I should have known you wouldn't post a video on your blog showing someone getting shot or hit by a car.

I realize that your bad day happened last week, Jeff - but now I'm the one who's having a bad day. (Note that it's presently 7:30 p.m. on a Monday evening, and that I'm still at work - i.e. I arrived here Friday morning and haven't left yet).

See, this is the reason I didn't start up a blog of my own.

Like a fool, I probably would've blogged about my 'work related difficulties' - to vent my frustrations - and I probably would've been fired as the result.

Seriously.

(I tend to piss off a lot people when I write, although I've no idea exactly why?)

I swear to god, in the past twelve months I don't think there's been a week that's gone by during which I haven't considered 'moving on'. Quitting, would be a better way of putting it.

Unfortunately my options are limited. If I'm not doing the job I'm presently doing, then I'm bagging groceries at the local Supermarket, or I'm shooting at members of the Taliban in Afghanistan (or worse, being shot at).

Jeff, in you Twitter feed from last week, you mentioned something about wandering, dazed and confused, around the offices at EA, pushing a cart, with all your stuff in it, like a bag-lady, and searching for a desk and a team that was prepared to take you in - care to elaborate on that?

I love reading about how miserable other people are.

It makes me feel better. :)

Here's a joke that's going around.

How many fan-boy gamers does it take to change a lightbulb?

Answer: Ten.

One to screw the new bulb in, and nine to stand there arguing that the previous one was better.

Budo said...

Remember when Jeff Green used to blog?

Yeah, those were good times...

If blogs were meals, it appears Jeff has succumbed to binge-snacking on Twitter.

Sing along with the "Bad day" to cheer you up. Then watch the video. Surely it would lighten up your mood. XD

sneakers shoes She continued,
"Why...? Don't you need someone to pose as your girlfriend this year?" Then he answered, "No, there is no need for that anymore......"
Before he can continue, he was interrupted, discount nike shoes"Oh yes! Must have found a girlfriend! nike shox r4 You haven't been searching for one for the past years, right?" The man looked up, as if he has struck gold, his face beamed and looked directly at the drunken girl. tn dollarHe replied, "Yes......you are right! I haven't been looking for anyone for the past years."
With that, the man darted across the floor and out the door, cheap nike shoesleaving the lady in much bewilderment. He finally realized that he has already found his dream girl, and she was.....the Vancouver girl all along! The drunken lady has said something that awoken him.
All along he has found his girl.nike tennis shoes That was why he did not bother to look further when he realized she was not coming back. It was not any specific girl he was seeking! cheap nike shoxIt was perfection that he wanted, and yes.....perfection!!
Relationship is something both parties should work on. Realizing that he had let away someone so important in his life, he decided to call her immediately. His whole mind was flooded with fear.free shipping shoes He was afraid that she might have found someone new or no longer had the same feelings anymore..... For once, he felt the fear of losing someone.
As it was Christmas eve, the line was quite hard to get through, especially an overseas call. He tried again and again, never giving up. Finally, he got through......precisely at 1200 midnight. He confessed his love for her and the girl was moved to tears. nike shoes It seemed that she never got over him! Even after so long, she was still waiting for him, never giving up.
He was so excited to meet her and to begin his new chapter of their lives. He decided to fly to Vancouver to join her. It was the happiest time of their lives! nike discount shoes But their happy time was short-lived. Two days before he was supposed to fly to Vancouver,cheap puma shoes he received a call from her father. She had a head-on car collision with a drunken driver. nike shox shoes She passed away after 6 hours in a coma.
The guy was devastated, as it was a complete loss. Why did fate played such cruel games with him? He cursed the heaven for taking her away from him, denying even one last look at her! How cruel he cursed! How he damned the Gods...!!nike free shoes How he hated himself....for taking so long to realize his mistake!! That was in 1996.
The moral of this story is :
Treasure what you have...
Time is too slow for those who wait;
Too swift for those who fear;
Too long for those who grief;
Too short for those who rejoice;
But for those who love...
Time is Eternity.
For all you out there with someone special in your heart, cherish that person, cherish every moment that you spend together that special someone, for in life, anything can happen anytime. buy shoes onlineYou may painfully regret, only to realise that it is too late.
