At the end it doesn't matter how many breaths you took but how many moments took your breath away. Try to maximise those moments

Sir Loin: Fucking Hell, I just heard on the news. Some guy in Christchurch was threatening to commit suicide so cops came and shot the poor bugger.
Way past time police forces around the world were trained to deal with mental illnesses

Sir Loin in reply to WonderWoman1: Life can be terribly sad and unfair. People in power (eg; cops) need to have more training in dealing with all potential situations such as the one I mentioned above. Then, just maybe we will have fewer such incidents
Goddess Of Shadows: Yes they do. A suicidal person needs help they need to know they aren't worthless that they are loved. There are ppl that are so kind so loving but so sensitive to things like gravity the air we breathe and just the atmosphere or environment that it literally feels like they are being pricked or poked. It is a physical manifestation of their depression. I call these people angels. they live they love but always have one foot on the other side and it calls to them.
Sir Loin: 5th December; On this day in 793AD a group of brave Vikings rescued the holy treasures of Lindisfarne Abbey from a fire that mysteriously started after all the monks died suddenly. True heroes!
Sir Loin: Have been roofing my new man cave. Standing on top rung of the ladder when ground collapsed under one leg of it. I fell across a rafter right onto an already broken rib. I may have said bugger! Appologies to anyone who heard me scream
Sir Loin: Last night Asiababe noticed I'd cleaned all the floors and rewarded me appropriately. I like her rewards so today have cleaned floors again twice
Sir Loin: Anyone wondering if women are smarter than men?
Think about this:
Diamonds are a girl's best friend.
A man's best friend is a dog.
Personally I prefer the dog

Sir Loin: Oh bugger, its strawberry season again. Life is soooo tough! We live in a dairying area so cream is always fresh. Double bugger! 😀
Sir Loin: 11.00am and already 32C I'm inside sheltering from the heat after framing the roof for my man cave. Finish the frame this evening when it's cooler

Sir Loin in reply to sarah_spirit: Sarah Honey, I hate to tell you this but NZ won by an innings and 65 runs after declaring their first innings at 600 to England's 350. Our boys didn't just win, they pissed upon your boys
