Jason Statham, 12 years on the British National Diving Team, martial artist, no bad public behavior that I could find. Seems a manly man with a taste for long relationships with hot women, a good sense of humor, & not stuck on himself. What’s not to like?

I can’t find anything not to like…

I was talking to a friend of mine today about some stuff he is needing to organize and I swear I closed my eyes when he mentioned color coding and sheet protectors and individual folders for each person. You could legit use that as foreplay with me.

The elephants’ journey, how did they know? 
On March 7, 2012, elephant conservationist Lawrence Anthony died. He lived in South Africa, where he was a legend, & author of 3 books including the bestseller, ’The Elephant Whisperer.’ Mr. Anthony was famous for the rescue & rehabilitation of wildlife all over the world, especially elephants. He is known for the rescue of elephants from the Baghdad Zoo following the US invasion of Iraq in 2003.
Two days after his passing, two large wild herds of elephants, 31 in all, arrived at his home, led by two large matriarchs. His wife said that elephants had not been to their house in 3 years. The elephants stayed for 2 days & nights without eating, then left the following morning. Witnesses speculate the elephants came to mourn, & were in awe of the elephants’ intelligence & apparent timing.
