If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment ,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. The goal of this art is to create a representation of an object using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably without the use of gluing or cutting the paper, and using only one piece of paper.
Won Park is the master of Origami. He is also called the money folder, a practitioner of origami whose canvas is the United States One Dollar Bill. Bending, twisting, and folding, Won Park creates life-like shapes inspired by objects living and not, both in stunning detail.

HERE IS YOUR ETHICAL CONUNDRUM FOR THE WEEK!!!
Pat Wesner of Salem, New York was driving to work on Tuesday morning, when a Brinks truck passed her. (Salem is 50 miles northeast of Albany.)
The back door of the truck flew open when it hit a bump in the road . . . and $11,000 in CASH fell out.
Pat has four kids . . . including one in college and one serving in Afghanistan. She also keeps the trunk of her car shut with a bungee cord, because the latch is broken. No one else saw the money fall . . . and the driver didn't even know he lost anything.
But Pat didn't consider keeping any of the money. Instead, she called 911 to report what happened and began collecting the money.
She returned all $11,000, and another $50 in pennies that fell out too. She got a thank-you call from the Brinks company for her trouble . . . but no reward.
CONGRATS TO PAT AND EVERY HONEST PERSON IN THE WORLD! BUT PLEASE, AT LEAST FIX THE GALS' TRUNK FOR HER!!
ARE YOU NORMAL??
If you've never taken a break from obsessively checking Facebook, give it a try. We promise you won't miss anything even remotely important. BUT . . . don't give it up forever. That would be CRAZY.
The Pew Internet & American Life Project just released the results of a nationwide survey on Facebook, and found that
61% of us have taken a VOLUNTARY BREAK from Facebook. Most of those breaks last at least a few weeks.
The top reason for taking a break was getting TOO BUSY. The rest of the top five reasons are losing interest . . . feeling like it's a waste of time . . . getting sick of the negativity and drama . . . or spending too much time on the site.
But even if you've taken a break . . . you've probably gone back. Only
20% of people surveyed said they've quit Facebook for good after their break.
Also, believe it or not,
8% of the people who aren't on Facebook say they're still interested in signing up in the future. We're not EXACTLY sure where they've been for the past five years or so, but by all means . . . no rush.
(THANKS TO Pew Internet)
I THOUGHT THIS WAS INTERESTING! IMAGINE THE HEADLINE IN YOUR "MY PET TIMES" MAGAZINE!
If you own a cat, there's probably been a day where he brought you a present from outside. And that present was a DEAD ANIMAL.
According to a new study, cats are actually the SERIAL KILLERS of the animal world. They're out there, every day, stealthily killing EVERYTHING in sight.
Between wild cats and pet cats who are allowed to go outside, cats kill anywhere from 6.9 BILLION to 20.7 BILLION other animals every year . . . and that's JUST in the continental U.S.
Birds are the main victim of serial killing cats. Cats take out up to 3.7 BILLION birds a year in the U.S. Mice, shrews, rabbits, and voles are the next-most common targets.
There are anywhere from 114 million to 164 million wild and domestic cats in the U.S. Which means the average cat kills at least 42 animals a year. Of course, I'm sure your special guy kills zero . . . it's all the other cats killing WAY more.
The Smithsonian ran the study with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Their response to the findings? Quote, "Stunned."
Aren't those "gifts" they bring us special?
