This is good advice coming from anybody but especially coming someone like astronaut Chris Hadfield. Lot's of people want to do something special for a living; but very few people accept the effort it takes achieve it. But consider this: If you don't put in 10 or 15 years of effort for a satisfying career, you may spend 35 or 40 years in a crappy one. On the bright side, it's never too late to start sculpting yourself.
Brazil got crushed today in their World Cup game against Germany. The ending score was 7-1, which is such a trouncing in soccer that Germany could have played their towel boy and some kids from the Make-a-Wish Foundation and still won by like, 3 goals. Brazil lost this game at home too, in front of thousands of despairing fans.

Well, this one is weird. These two women are like the Bonnie and Clyde of middle-aged petty theft. I would have never expected that two women easing into their golden years from the comfort of a couple beach towels would actually be casing the joint; looking for some nice beach equipment to take home and show off to their gang (grandchildren). But that's exactly what they were doing. Toward the end of the video the woman in pink either had some sand in her tankini or she knew the jig was up, because she started to get pretty aggressive.
You may not know Porky Pig's speech pattern is even impressive until after you watch this video. But after watching, it's clear that this pattern requires some real mastery. Just try doing the Porky Pig voice. It is pretty freaking ehdiDIehdifficult!
Green Lake in Styria, Austria looks like a beautiful place--complete with relaxing benches, quaint bridges and meandering paths. But there was one small oversight in the design of this park...
