“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Maryanne Williamson

CSPI on New Coca-Cola Advertising Campaign & Obesity
“The soda industry is under siege, and for good reason. This new advertising campaign from Coca-Cola is just a damage control exercise, and not a meaningful contribution toward addressing obesity. What the industry is trying to do is forestall sensible policy approaches to reducing sugary drink consumption, including taxes, further exclusion from public facilities, and caps on serving sizes such as the measure proposed by Mayor Bloomberg.”

Friday is the end of the world as you all know (My theory is that as soon as the planets all line up on the opposite side of the sun, all of the solar system’s gravity will be working against us. We will be pulled into the sun. We must obey gravity it is the law),
so we are cancelling the 7:30pm class Friday night and having a party… A few short challenge throwdowns might add to the revelry. So if you want to entertain the masses in a showdown, throw down the gauntlet before a friend or a foe. Let the crowd determine your fate! They decide which WOD!
End of the world movie(s) will be shown. If you plan to imbibe, also plan for a safe return. Or to hang out until the end of the world.
I do have a friend who has a plan to save the world and is accepting donations for the cause…
if she is successful….We will also be cancelling the 7:30 am class on Saturday. We may need to recover:)

“Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future.”
― Niels Bohr
“It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.”
― Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
