When I was younger I was afraid of only 2 things. Spiders and Needles. So I never gave blood, and would run like a little girl at the site of a spider. Thankfully I’ve overcome these fears. I hate bugs, and spiders eat bugs. That’s a good thing.
As for needles, I think I was partially scared of them because I associated them with getting sick, drug use, and disease. I think too many years in Catholic school had me brain washed.
Well the past few years when I went to give blood at various blood drives, for some bizarre reason I was turned away each time. Each time they had reached their capacity. Maybe more people in the NY area give blood or something.
So today I finally paid some of my debt to society. They tell me I saved 3 people today so I feel good.
Prof whose ‘last lecture’ became a sensation dies – Yahoo! News
PITTSBURGH – Randy Pausch, the Carnegie Mellon University computer scientist whose “last lecture” about facing terminal cancer became an Internet sensation and a best-selling book, died Friday. He was 47.
I’m sad to find out Randy Pausch passed away today. I think he was inspirational to many people
