For those of you reading this and you know me then you will be shocked about what I am writing about. I think that violence in the entertainment world is going to be the end of mankind. Many people think that part of the reason the Roman Empire fell was the people of Rome got to violent. They would spend hours at the Coliseum watching gladiatorial shows, animal hunts, or reenactments’ of great battles. Battles and hunts were often staged amid elaborate sets with movable trees and buildings. Such events were occasionally on a huge scale. Today mixed martial arts (MMA) pro-wrestling litter the pay-per-view Television. The best selling movies each year is the one with the most violence in it. ESPN’s hit T.V. show Sportscenter shows the biggest hits of the day in sports. The Daily News does the same thing so they can get more viewers. I am not seeing any end to this.

Nicknames are a fun and easy way to call someone with a long names, it is also something that is given to friends in with that word has a meaning to. I have a lot of nicknames Brother Booth was given to me by Travis and is use by him and any of his friends. One that is used the most and has followed me most of my life is Booth or Boothie. Then there is Joe which came my full name of Joseph. There are nicknames all around the world and of course this includes sports. Broadway Joe Namath, The Bus" - Jerome Bettis "The Edge" — Edgerrin James and many more. Well all love nick names.

"Briseann an dúchais tri shúile an chat" Irish Gaelic proverb that Meaning is “The true nature of someone's character is revealed through their eyes." I have followed this for many years. I try to look deep into a person eyes to see if they are hidden something or if they just may be flat out Lying. No matter how good you think that you are at it (I suck so bad that I do not lie) a person eyes tell the truth. Likewise, the eyes can tell you how much someone loves you. The eyes glisten over and the iris widens. No matter what you say or how you act the Eyes will tell the Truth.

No two people are equal, no two people are the same not even identical twins yet we all have the same basic goal in life and that is to find what makes us happy. We all have a different idea on what makes up happy and content. To unearth this “ultimate goal” we will embark on long and most difficult journey. Some time we will be blinded by this goal and think that we have achieved but we soon found that we have not. The hunt continues. Some of us will never find it and some of us do not know that we have found this happiest until it is too late and some sadly do not find it at all.

Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain.
It's not something you learn in school.
But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship,
you really haven't learned anything.
Good Friends come to your aid without your asking. Over the last few weeks I have found out who are some of my greatest friends and for that I am thankful.

Is Eric a bad person? This is what one of my friends told me about Eric
bananaqueen1231 (10:57:30 PM): stop talking to Eric, before you tell me
bananaqueen1231 (10:57:43 PM): I don’t even know why you do
bananaqueen1231 (10:57:49 PM): he’s toxic to you Joe, and you know it
joecusecolts (10:57:51 PM): I am not talking to Eric
bananaqueen1231 (10:57:56 PM): no I mean period!
bananaqueen1231 (10:57:58 PM): stop it
Now it is true that Eric and I almost never see eye to eye in things, hell half the time I use Eric and his stories for my enjoyment. The person that told me that Eric is toxic worked with both me and Eric for years but now has left the Giant for a better job. She (I will call her banana queen) has been a close friend of my for years and has never lead me astray; I think of banana queen as a sensei to me I have learned a lot from her and I am a better person because of her.
