Polished up my grammar a bit...

Since there was no real thread for useless but nonetheless
interesting links I thought I'd create one.

Silly Google. You don't use "estar" for permanent conditions. Oh, maybe they think Heath (or Tom) will rise from the dead.

Ode Magazine is a Dutch magazine that's been launched a few years back now in the US. It's a positive magazine looking to do things differently in life. So, this one is interesting...

Tony, have you read this one?

Quote

Rummerfield, 54, is himself a quadriplegic, injured in a high-speed car crash decades ago. You would never guess that without reading his medical chart. Even then, you wouldn't know he has run marathons and completed triathlons in addition to his auto racing exploits. Along the way, Rummerfield has overcome five knee operations, broken legs and fractured ankles. He doesn't walk with a limp, never uses a cane and is modest of both build and demeanor. In short, the most ordinary of extraordinary men.

Amazing video

Tony is sparse here these days.

So, the guy nearly dies in a car wreck, now he races for speed records. Ironic. (scary.)

What a journey.

For some odd reason I don't think the product would look like the one shown.

Not exactly funny, but very interesting article by Steve Martin about his early career.

Oh I disagree.

He's very self deprecating for someone so pompous.

I think Steve Martin is an earnest guy and worked hard to achieve what he wanted.

Thanks for posting the link.

There's a fine line between confidence and arrogance. I think he walks it well. To me it didn't "feel" like he was full of himself, it seemed like he just has a good understanding of what he does well, what he doesn't do well and the process he went through to reach that understanding.
