Sports agent Scott Boras, making a not-so-thinly veiled reference to Jay Z getting into his business.
Related: It will be interesting to see how the Robinson Cano situation is resolved.
That’s great but, there’s one giant, huge, horrendous elephant in the quote; Scott Boras is not a doctor, nor is his career anywhere near neurosurgery.
And the cajones on him to even compare being a sports agent to being a neurosurgen. C’mon. We’re not talking life or death in his career; we’re talking a million or 10. Not even close.
Also, THEY WOULDN’T GIVE YOU A SCALPEL EITHER SCOTT
How many times can I tell myself I am unhappy with my life before I decide that something must change? At least one more.
How many times can I tell myself I want to change before I actually start to change? At least one more.
How many times will I sit and wonder if there is something wrong with me because I do nothing that will change my life? At least one more.
I’m tired of those times. They’ve added up. A lot. I have thirty four years of wasted one more times. And I’m crippled by their weight on my shoulders. Sitting there. Reminding me that I’ve been here before. Promising that I will be here again. That I haven’t started. Haven’t tried. Because I know that I will fail. I will fail because of those times I failed. Because the fear of failing is greater than the hope of succeeding.
Now how do you combat that?
I have three different devices connected to the internet now and they’re all connected differently. Such is the dorkdom that I life in.
A Galaxy Nexus running on Verizon’s 4G LTE network.
My Windows 8 PC (I think I’m the only person in the world who actually likes Windows 8 but, that’s a post for never) connected by LAN through Time Warner Cable.
A new Nexus 7 by Asus connected by Wi-Fi to the above mentioned Time Warner pipe.
And they all get different download and upload speeds. I’d figure that with the phone because it’s on a different network but, the computer and the tablet? They should get similar or comparable speeds but, nope, they don’t do that.
Galaxy Nexus - Ping 51 ms - DL 2.19 Mbps - UP 4.55 Mbps
Windows 8 PC - Ping 9 ms - DL 16.35 Mbps - UP 1.20 Mbps
Nexus 7 - Ping 23 ms - DL 0.72 Mbps - UP 1.30 Mbps
I can only conclude that my Wi-Fi sucks balls because of some setting in my router that I’m not going to do anything about right now because it’s 12 am and I don’t want to. This will be the challenge to figure out this week. Yay! A challenge that I probably won’t finish. Wheeeeee.
Also, there’s a Kindle Fire some where in this room but, I didn’t feel like hunting it down for this little comparison so sue me.
I’m just going to put it out there.
I do not think newborn babies are cute.
There. I said it.
