    • Statistically speaking, I'm far more likely to be maimed/tortured/brutally dismembered by someone I know. Factual, though not entirely comforting.
  • Animals that are funny-looking but harmless
    • Ostriches, emus, turkeys, rodents, fish, lizards, possums, aardvarks, armadillos, nearly every creature in the Galapagos & Australia, etc.
  • Accidentally offending people
    • I should do everything in my power to respect the feelings, perspectives, and beliefs of others, but I shouldn't become afraid to speak for the mere possibility that someone out there might not be thrilled with what I have to say. Those who deserve my concern would probably be gracious enough to consider that I don't typically seek to offend, or brave enough to take a stand and tell me where I'm wrong.
