What Doesn't Kill You Only Makes You Stronger
Scott's Tip Of The Day: What doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger. A wise man said that. Well, I don't know that he was wise. He could have been a moron. It's possible that's the only intelligent thing he ever said. But you know what? It wasn't even intelligent. What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger? What about a knife? What if a guy cuts kidnaps you and cuts a big chunk of your Achilles heel off of your foot? With prompt medical attention, that won't kill you. But that won't make you stronger. See what I mean? That "wise man" should have said:
"Whatever doesn't kill you will probably strike the fear of God into you and you'll have issues the rest of your life... issues that tens of thousands of dollars worth of therapy won't fix, of which you will pay a sh*t-ton out of pocket because your insurance provider is gonna try and screw you, because that's what they always do, and no amount of calls or complaints to your provider, or suggestions to your boss to change coverage/plans is ever gonna fix that, so you might as well not even complain and spend your time playing Nintendo Wii instead, that is if after your insurance company raped your wallet, you can still afford a Nintendo Wii, the optional add-on accessories, the extra controller, the memory card, the games or an apartment with enough room to flail your arms wildly, without smashing into ceilings or walls."
