One of the first things they ask you in the ER is to rate your pain on a scale from 1 to 10. I’ve been asked this question hundreds of times and I remember once, when I couldn’t catch my breath and I felt like my chest was on fire, the nurse asked me to rate the pain. Though I couldn’t speak, I held up 9 fingers. Later, when I started feeling better, the nurse came in and she called me a fighter. “You know how I know?” she said, “You called a 10 a 9.” But that wasn’t the truth.
I didn’t call it a 9 because I was brave. The reason I called it a 9 was because I was saving my 10…and this was it.
The world is full of beautiful people. An anonymous man in Saudi Arabia installed a giant refrigerator in front of his house. He and his neighbors leave their leftovers in it daily, providing free food for the less fortunate children in his town. He wants to spare them the “shame” of begging, and provide them with proper meals instead.

"Mom! Earth threw a satellite at me!!" said all the other planets.
"Mom," Pluto wailed, "Earth is saying I’m not a real planet again!"

I love how our entire generation all take Pluto not being an official planet anymore as a personal insult
