not your average blow out

Two thoughts:

a) Would not want to be wearing contact lenses.

b) Best Facebook profile photo ever.

A creative way to tell your friends that your relationship is coming to an end. Congratulations to the (former) couple for handling things in a graceful, mature and kind way, and special high-five to Ivory for being straight-up about the fact that she doesn’t want kids. This might comes as a shock — but not every woman does. (Nor does every man, but that seems to be a lot less controversial for some unfair reason?)

“let me see what I can do”

There are two things I love about this video.

The first is the idea of Rejection Therapy — I don’t know much about the actual game itself, but I like the intent of helping people become more comfortable with failure, and more confident in the face of rejection.

The second thing I love is the fact that this guy makes what he thinks is a ridiculous, doomed-to-fail request… and he has his wish granted. It’s an even more valuable lesson in going after what you want, even in the face of probable rejection. Even if the odds aren’t on your side — you never know when you’re going to catch a break.
