Friday Link Love

I’m still here, but dang it’s been nice to take a break from any and all writing. Aside from sermons.

Quoting:

“Doesn’t it bother you that people can go on the internet and call you a talentless piece of shit, and never have to say it to your face?,” he continued.

Some medical personnel wear medallions stamped “NO CODE” to tell physicians not to perform CPR on them. I have even seen it as a tattoo.
