Quote of the day

"One of the reasons we made it to the top of the food chain, besides being able to manufacture weapons of mass destruction, is our adaptability. You can put one of us in any situation, no matter how extreme, and we'll usually find a way to cope. And that's a good thing. But sometimes we adapt in a way that isn't all that healthy, like staying in a harmful relationship. Or job. Or boring ass life. If we don't break out by a certain point there's a chance we'll never do so, and we simply accept it. We've adapted to our circumstances, when we should be gnawing our leg off to escape like any decent wild animal would. But we humans are civilized and tend to accept whatever crap is thrown our way, no matter how buried in it we become."

Quote of the day

"Promises made to yourself aren't very useful since you hardly mind when the promisee ends up breaking them, and it's damned hard to even get an apology afterwards."
