    I am a big quitter, and I come from a long line of quitters.  My whole family is that way, we get excited to start something, but rarely do we actually finish or go through with it.  We always have the best excuses to quit something, not only does it make sense for us to quit...

    I follow a number of folks on Twitter who claim to be the Almighty. @God just tweeted that he “told Jesus to go for something less flashy.”

    This photo was the picture of the day Saturday at Jalopnik, the automobile member of the Gawker family:

    The Lamborghini Countach is fast, but everyone knows Bulls can’t swim, so is it fast enough to walk on water, Jesus-style?

    Turns out Searoader built an amphibious version of Lamborghini’s famous sports car, production of which stopped in 1989.

    Here's my "Parking Spot Theory": Let's say you're driving around, looking for a parking spot and you can't find one. You drive around the block again and, still, nothing. You look up ahead at the other cars circling the block and no one is getting a parking spot. Frustration builds....
