2 More Days

XamCram...It's 2AM, my brain is fried...I'm gonna watch Bodacious Space Pirates, then turn in.
Monday is my exam day.
Blogging will resume shortly thereafter.

In the meantime here here is an important life lesson from HELVITICA STANDARD.

If you can figure out said lesson...please tell me.

1 In his autobiography Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman, he tells the story of a guy pulling the tape out of a tape meaure and letting it snap back, and Feynman asks how he does it without hurting himself, and the guy hands him the tape measure and says "you figure it out."  He spent all weekend trying and failing to learn the trick, beating his hand unmercifully in the process.  On Monday, he asked the guy how the heck he managed to keep from hurting himself when the tape snapped back, and the guy replied "I don't."
I think the lesson here is actually some sort of contrapositive of the one in your animation.

2 There's a scene in Lawrence of Arabia kind of like that. "Of course it hurts! The secret is to not mind that it hurts."
