The Breakfast Club (Bon Voyage, L'Hermione)

weekend morning at 10:30am (ET) to talk about current news and our

Something to Think about over Coffee Prozac

 

Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn't do than those you did. So throw off the
bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the wind in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.

Something to Think about over Coffee Prozac

 

I ask this in all seriousness -- what in the zipless fck is wrong with our species? People, here's some tips on fireworks. Do not light them off your head. Do not light them off your chest. And, when you light one, throw the damn thing as far as you can! These things explode. You're aware of that, right? Oh, and when the sign says beware of the alligator, please, you know, do your very best to beware of the damn alligator. This has been a terrible week for Charles Darwin.

Everyone has a responsibility to not only tolerate
another person's point of view, but also to accept it eagerly as a
challenge to your own understanding. And express those challenges in
terms of serving other people.

at all and it was the people saying they were weird that were weird.
