    Funny, true story.

    When I was young we owned a farm and I often was forced by my stepfather to assist at nearby farms, often doing hard labor while he got paid for it.

    One of my least favorite jobs was slinging poo, as it were, from various animal stalls and fenced areas, sometimes stacked in piles as high as five feet (as a courtesy done by the host farmer, to make it easier for me I guess).

    One day I asked one of those farmers how he could stand the smell of his farm all day long, and he said something that made me laugh so hard I never forgot it:

    "Son, if they shittin, it means I'm eatin".
    The power of positive thinking.

    Perfectly illustrated last weekend when Audley Harrison entered the Ring. Until reality hit (in Round 3).:XXonlyamo

    Still, the positive thinking gained its own reward. Apparently he got away with 1.2M.

    15 of it mine. PPV.

    I like the punch line at the end.
    Daniel: I don't know if I know enough karate.

    Miyagi: Feeling correct.

    Daniel: You sure know how to make a guy feel confident.

    Miyagi: You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.

    Your positive thinking is no match for my anger.
