The Daily Man-Up: Ease is the Enemy

November 7, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: Man-Up |

“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.” ― Theodore Roosevelt

Ease isn’t your friend. It’s your enemy.

It stands as a false ideal, something to aspire to have in the present, without having earned it.

And do we ever really earn ease?

Ease, laziness, they’re regression. They’re waste.

They rip from us our potential, and the life we can potentially create, and yet we constantly heed their siren-like call and settle into their grasp, ignorant of the fact that they oppose the act of living, they poison potential, they crush creation.

Ease isn’t an ally, it’s a devious, son-of-a-bitch of an enemy that clouds the true path.

It’s a path where we find what we’re made of, where we create something better than what we have, where we discover meaning, purpose, and pride.

It’s in struggle, strife, and pain, it’s in effort, hard work, and battle, that we create power.

Nothing good has ever come from a quest for ease.

Testimonies From Survivors Of The Rwanda Genocide

November 6, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: TRUTH |

1. I am the only survivor of my family. I was only 19 years old when the genocide took place. My parents, three sisters and two brothers were killed in Gitarama on the 14th April.

When the killing began, my family escaped in many different directions. My two brothers and younger sister, then aged 14, escaped to Butare. Along the way my other sister and I separated from my brothers, managing to hide in a trench.

On 16th April we were discovered by some local villagers, who had joined with the interahamwe. We pleaded with them to leave us alone. We were extremely lucky, because they did just that. At around 2.00pm, still on the 16th, we naively believed that the situation must have improved. We came out of the trenches.

The killers mocked us saying: “Aha, it is the girls. Let’s go and ‘liberate’ them. We must give them something to celebrate.” They took us and another girl who was carrying a baby, to a nearby hill. We passed a roadblock where we saw that people were being killed. Right in front of us people were forced to squat on the floor and were then macheted or killed with a masu. A big truck was on standby where the bodies were piled on and taken away.

When they were tired of killing, the men came to us and ordered us to take off our clothes. They each in turn raped us. One man pleaded with the others to leave my 14 years old sister alone, saying she was only a kid. The other men laughed and said, that we were all going to be killed anyway. That we would have to chose between rape or a cruel death. They raped my 14­year­old sister. I stopped feeling my pain. I wanted to protect her, but I couldn’t. After raping us they gave us food to eat by the roadside.

Man Dies 8 Years After Swallowing A Live Slug That Left Him Paralyzed

November 6, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: Story |

sam ballard snail

In 2010, a teenage rugby player in Australia named Sam Ballard accepted an unusual dare at a party: swallow a live garden slug. The experience left him paralyzed and with significant brain damage, and on Friday (Nov. 2), Ballard died in a Sydney hospital at the age of 28.

In an interview with The Sunday Project, one of his friends said they were having a “wine appreciation night, trying to act as grown-ups and a slug came crawling across.”

“The conversation came, ‘should I eat it?’

“Off Sam went. Bang. That’s how it happened.”

Within days of eating the slug, Ballard noticed pain in his legs.

Doctors determined that the Australian man had contracted eosinophilic meningitis — a rare disease that affects the membranes of the brain and spinal cord — from the slug, which was infected with the rat lungworm parasite.

November 6, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: Video Games |

Red Dead Redemption 2 gives the player the choice to act in a variety of ways, with their actions ultimately affecting their moral rating and the way they are perceived by other characters.

Some gamers are now using free will to attack a suffragette character who can be seen in the the industrial city of Saint Denis, campaigning for her right to vote. Standing beside a ‘Votes for Women’ sign on a public street, a woman can be heard shouting “let me vote! I can say this all day!” over and over again. She has quickly gained the title of one of the more annoying characters in the game.

A YouTuber by the handle Shirrako uploaded a video entitled, ‘Red Dead Redemption 2 – Beating Up Annoying Feminist’, where he punches the woman in the face. Check out the video below.
