Aliens exist? Chances are yes. There are probably around 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 planets. Of those, maybe 100000000000000 have conditions like Earth (suitable for life as we know it). That doesn't even include the potential for life as we don't know it. Also, these numbers are probably conservative.
What is love? An evolved form of the instinct "care for one's young". Especially necessary in humans, who must invest solely in 1-10 children to continue the bloodline, unlike fish and insects.
What is evolution? Process of elimination.
What happens when I die? Blank.

Do any of you have something you're randomly really good at, but you never have a chance to show it cause it's too random/obscure?

"I got robbed at gunpoint years ago while working 3rd shift at a gas station. He drug me into the bathroom and pointed the gun at my head, then told me to turn around and face the wall. I had been doing all he asked until then, but at that moment my Aunt's voice came into my head telling me the only thing she ever would say when I asked her about surviving the Holocaust. She told me "Remember that it's easier for someone to shoot you in the back than to shoot you in the face. Never turn around. Make them look you in the eye."

I haven't done this at all, so I'll do it today.
Today I finally got hired by the hospital I volunteer at. I was suppose to start on March 1st, but only now was able to finalize the paperwork.
Then I found out that the timesheets are for 3/1 to 3/17. So I still get paid for all the work I did since March 1st!
Very happy at this news. Also trying to tutor every single student in the SoCal area. Tutoring can be surprisingly good side-income; I'm averaging about 500/month from tutoring alone.
Now it all comes down to finding a place to live.

This is a savannah. It is a hybrid between a Serval (African wild cat) and a domestic cat.
I'm always thinking of cool things I want after I get my own place. A very unique pet is one of these things. I originally wanted a Serval, but from reading about them, they seem like too big of a handful. Then I came across these guys.
Other than looking really cool, their temperament and other qualities sound good. Wiki says that they are loyal like dogs (which I don't entirely believe), very intelligent, and can jump extremely high (8 feet).
This post is a reminder to my future self, more than anything, that a pet such as this exists. Hopefully one day I can own one. They cost thousands of dollars so...time to get to work.

The following is NOT about Arnold. I just read a story about an American guy who was a pretty big nerd, low self-esteem, etc. One day he decided to "re-invent" himself as a normal kid from Australia, and started lifting weights, liking sports, and..talking in an Australian accent. With a new life in tow, he meets a girl, and they begin dating. The problem is, this entire time she believes he's Australian, and he starts freaking when she insists to meet his family.

On Tuesday I'll finally end my battle with cancer thanks to Oregon's Death with dignity act. As part of my preparations I've ended my pain medication and am trying to regain what little dignity and clarity I can.
Who I was doesn't matter. I'm in pain, I'm tired and I'm finally being granted a small shred of respect. Feel free to AMA if you're so inclined.
He (Lucidending) had some poignant comments to make.
