  3. Louis C.K.:

    These stories are true. At the time, I said to Comedian Louis C.K. that what I did was OK because I never showed a woman my( penis) without asking first, which is also true, but what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your( penis) isn't a question. It's a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly.

  4. Emeasoba George:

    It takes spirit of faith for an impossibility to metamorphose into a possibility. It takes spirit of faith to acknowledge/believe in the existence/reality of the invisible i.e. God almighty. Also, it takes spirit of faith to believe undoubtedly that no mountain/obstacle is insurmountable. Likewise, it takes spirit of faith to acknowledge/believe that with God/time no goal/target/vision/aspiration/dream is unattainable/unachievable. Moreover, it takes the same spirit of faith to profess positivity even when negativity is imminent. Besides, it takes spirit of faith to live all through difficulty/hardship. Above all, whoever that bears the spirit of faith in him/her can't/won't say that he/she is done for/finished no matter his/her ordeal/predicament. In fact, spirit of faith does a lot in any life that it inhabits. So, if you lack it (spirit of faith) dare to quest/ask for it from God and do portray it outrightly when he (God) eventually endows you with it i.e. spirit of faith.

  5. Nicolas Martin, www.iatrogenic.org:

    The headline reads, "Docs say patients make them prescribe useless antibiotics." This puts a physician in roughly the same predicament as a serial killer. The latter says, "Stop me before I kill again, while the former says, "Stop me before I prescribe again."
