Don't Go Near Angry Man

This excellent post caught my attention. I'm a pretty happy go lucky kind of bloke and have always tried to stay away from negative people. They always seem to bring you down. Even when the shit hits the fan I try to be chipper - it helps me get through the nightmare quicker. So this really struck a chord with me. Here's a quick snippet "Can any of us honestly say we haven't experienced emotional contagion? Even if we ourselves haven't felt our energy drain from being around a perpetually negative person, we've watched it happen to someone we care about. We've noticed a change in ourselves or our loved ones based on who we/they spend time with. We've all known at least one person who really did seem able to "light up the room with their smile," or another who could "kill the mood" without saying a word. We've all found ourselves drawn to some people and not others, based on how we felt around them, in ways we weren't able to articulate."

Great stuff.

Barrett Dies

Syd Barrett of legendary rock group Pink Floyd, has died at the age of 60, the band's spokeswoman has confirmed.

Let this be a lesson to you all. Drugs are good, then bad, then you die - So you may as well try them, at least once.
