Ever known some one that tried to be wise but never quite succeeded?

    When I was a kid, I had zero interest in basketball, but I did look up to Michael Jordan after I read a story about how he chose his jersey number. It was, supposedly, because it was approximately half of what his brother's jersey number was, and he'd aspired to be even half as good as the brother he looked up to.

    That story struck me as the words of a wise and humble man. As time went on and stories hit the news, though, I began to doubt in an old hero.

    Today, though, I found a link to Michel Jordan's Twitter account. Today, I have faith again.

    http://twitter.com/michaeljordan

    That is the Twitter page of a deep thinker. Look at these!

    Each one of these is like a koan. It is spectacular.

    I am glad you have your faith restored. With standards as low as yours, you will never be disappointed.

    :rofl: J/K, good post.
