      That "Stoner" has beat A LOT of people, one of the greatest athletes of all time. It's not like he was doping

    • IXgogaIX

      shameful? you're jelous…

    • F MADE

      wooo! murica!

    • glamis26

      And wouldn't that affect his breathing?

    • joeschmoe

      this is a picture from the 200 butterfly in the most recent olympics, if you remember correctly chad le clos actually won this race by a fingernail. it was the first time phelps lost that race in international competition since 2001. and this stoner has a talent and work ethic that is unprecedented. he's been dominating many of the greatest athletes in the history of swimming since he was a kid.

        And on top of that he smoked a little weed, which is harmless as beer (if not even more harmless). There were no steroids or HGH just weed. What is shameful is parents telling their kids to stop liking him with a beer in their hand. Get educated on the effects of weed. You'd have to smoke somewhere around twice your body weight within 15 minutes to die from the effects it causes (how many beers does it take?) And in all reality you'd die from smoke inhalation first. Secondly it's non addictive, a common thing for drug addicts to do is blame other people and the smear campaign on weed pretty much gave them the greatest excuse. So go read up on it before down talking it so harshly and allowing our government to spend billions prosecuting and jailing people who smoke

          Id argue on the addictive side…. is it addictive where your body craves it? Dont think so, but we all have addictive personalities. Gambling is addictive…. Ive seen people who have to have weed…. and I mean have to….

          Not against it, to each their own. As long as you pay your taxes and dont hurt anyone, smoke crack for all I care.

    #26 THIS.

    Last week i had a hipster tool in front of me on his iPhone the entire time, then when it was his turn to be served actually started to think about what he wanted.

    • crustybubblechunks

      Did you kill him?

    • LowerCase McGee

      Of all the touching and insightful statements… this is the one I most identify with. I'm not sure what that says about me.

      • Craigery

        It means you're smarter than the masses.

    • JWoeBMoneY

      If you're waiting in line for a half hour for a fucking cup of coffee, I should be allowed to kill you!!

      • Mustard

        Never had Tim's…

        • Earl

          Tims is disgusting, weak coffee. The only reason people say it's so good is because they fill it with sugar and high-fat cream

    • Big Poppa

      it'S not how you kill the man, it's how you dispose of the body.

    #7 might be the most intelligent quote i have ever heard from a professional athlete and so true!

    • Kc_chief fan

      And his biggest contribution to football fans all season!

    • So True

      As we all sit here on our computers/smartphones

        • obviously

          Yep seen this posted on too many facebook walls

    • Yezzza

      Brady Quinn is an idiot.

      • MattyDeuce

        Multi-millionaire who got a free college education at one of the most prestigious universities in the country, all the while making his living playing a children's game as a grown man? Hmmm, "idiot" isn't what comes to mind when I think of him. I never had a problem with him as a person, don't know why you do.

        Oh, and I bet he gets more women than, say, all of us. He is a beautiful sonuvabitch.

    • mongoose5271

      I totally thought the same thing and then I read Pete King's article in Sports Illustrated where Quinn talks about the game: "…I'd like to think maybe I had some help…from No. 59 (Belcher)…"

      REALLY?!?!?!? You'd like to think you had help from someone who murdered the mother of his child less than 24 hours before????

    #8 You're correct Rob Dawson.

      i see what you did there…

    #2 WHY IS THE RUM ALWAYS GONE? -Jack Sparrow / Life motto

  • KeepinCalm

    #16 The executive branch of our (US) government would do well listening to these words

    • TheBAMFinater

      Not just the White House, but all of Congress.

    • Craigery

      No, just the ones who are stuck in the past: Conservatives.

      • Kirk9992

        Ya, because earning what you keep and keeping what you earn while living within your means is soooo archaic.

        • Brian

          It's cute that you think Republicans are still like that. It isn't 1971.

      • Joe


    • Rtblakes

      So true…That's exactly what I thought when I read that quote.

    • what

      You think they actually want to solve any of the current major problems. Hate to tell you this, but they are making millions off the current situation (at least in their personal bank accounts).

  • Sam

    #5 my man!

  • Caleb

    I typically go through these and feel good for a little bit afterwards without much afterthought. But this one kind of caught me off guard, I've flip flopped on my answer several times and still can't truly decide. Well played.

    • tralfaz

      Depends on who the new character is.

      • Urethra Franklin

        That's not the point. The point is if you knew…what would you do? I think it would make people even more lazy and afraid cuz they knew a new life was coming soon anyways

        • Berty

          I think it depends on how satisfied an individual is with their current life. I'm betting suicide would be much more prevalent.

        • Caleb

          I think soon would become much more relative if you lived multiple lives, assuming you keep your memories from past existences… I can't help but think about typical Fantasy races like Elves that lead such long lives compared to the Human lifespan to them 10 years may be a short time in their existence. Whereas in a Human's life it could be up to a fourth of their existence depending on lifespans. I think the whole idea of it is very interesting and has many nuances to consider. At this point I'm really reading into it a bit much I think! I would imagine those that live to accomplish and experience things would become even more ambitious, and those who are lazy and sedentary would continue on that path too.

    • holyshit

      I have to agree with your comment completely. I will forget all of these "words of inspiration" some sooner and some later. But, I am certain that these I will remember.

  • Chrtmh2

    #22 This works if you substitute "Fingering" for making out.

  • TylerDerpen

    #3 #4 This Chuck guy wrote a pretty good book.

    • The_Ger

      He wrote quite a few pretty good books. One of my favorite authors. Invisible Monsters and Rant are the shit.

      • catmoustache

        Rant and Survivor are my absolute favorites, Chuck is definitely my favorite author.

    • MattyDeuce

      Hands down my favorite author. In addition to what the other have said, Haunted (my personal favorite), Diary, and Lullaby are excellent reads.

      • The_Ger

        I just read Haunted a couple months ago. That one has some deliciously sick stories. Started reading Lullaby, then I have Snuff, and then I believe I'll have read them all. Supposedly his next book will be a sequel to Damned (which I thought was weak compared to most of his work), but I'm sure as hell gonna read it.

  • Murph

    #7 I wish he was at Notre Dame this year. Then we probably would have a better chance against Alabama.

  • tralfaz

    #4 Unless you're a convicted felon.

    • thedude325

      Or have herpes…

  • HUH?

    #6 how would you like to go through life with that name?

    • RandomChiver

      Bring it. It's all about whether you own it, or let it own you.

  • tkc

    #13 is entirely wrong. Shoveling bullshit at people just to spare their feelings will only compound their problems in the long run.

    • Craigery

      I don't think you understand what it's saying.

      • tkc

        Which would you rather have, an intelligent right answer or a kinder, patient, heartfelt, wrong answer?

        • Methos

          Unfortunately, the majority of Americans choose the latter.

    • Oscar

      It isn't about shoveling anything. it's about listening rather than speaking

    • Miller0700

      And the reason why no one listens and no one has time to vent is why people are so crappy now.

  • misschris

    #26 I wish Dr Cox could just follow me around all day just so he can tell off the annoying people for me – he will always say it better than I can.

    • MonkeyMadness

      Out of all the others I like this one the most because I can really relate.

  • Tillman61

    The "Burn Your Bra" section was a lot more inspiring to me… just sayin'…

  • Kodos

    #9 #13 #15

    What a bunch of feel-good happy-ass bullshit.

  • Craigery

    #16 I wish the GOP understood this.

    • Rtblakes

      I wish Obama did…

      • Brian

        Since deregulation of the financial industry caused the recession I'm not sure what you mean Rt.

  • trick

    #3 #6 #16 WORD!!!

  • Craigery

    #24 I've heard so many variations of this I just roll my eyes now.

  • sfb101

    #11 I need to remember this more.

    • Mother Pus Bucket

      I think homeless people feel that way.

  • Craigery

    I'd like to make one that says "If reading a cliche platitude superimposed on a stock photograph is enough to improve your life, then you probably didn't have any real problems in the first place."

    • RandomChiver

      Few people actually do.

      • thedude325

        Everybody does, they just try to hide that shit so it never sees the light of day.

  • Penal_Colony

    #10 Who's Bansky? Is he related to Banksy?

    • That Guy

      I do believe that I read this inspirational quote about 25 years ago. perhaps is from robert frost or walden, somewhere along the time of those men. Bansky? i dunno why the credit is going there

      • slickknuckles

        Agreed. The quote does start "they say…" So it was probably something Banksy said in an interview
