Twenty Dollars
A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a
out In the room of EDD. he asked. "Who would like this
SEE tall'?"
Hands started going up. He sad. "I am going to give this 520
to one of you - out first, let me do this."
He proceeded to the 20 dollar note up, He then
asked. "Who still wants d'?" Still the hands were up in the air.
Well." he replied, "what it I do they?" He dropped it on the
ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He
picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. "Now. who still wants
Still the hands went into the air.
My trends. you have all learned a very lesson. No
matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it Because it
did not decrease in value. It was still worth EEG.
Many times in our lives. we are dropped, crumpled, and
ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the
circumstances that come our way, We heel as though we are
worthless: out no matter what happened or what will happen.
you will never lose your value.
Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased. you are slit:
priceless to those who love you. The worth o! our lives
comes, not in what we do or who we know. but by ...WHD
You are special - don' t ever target it."
This post always shows up in my the when I need to hear it

Maybe, but that's not why I got the money. . .

That's different, though. legal tender is valuable no matter what condition it's in, but other things' value is dependent on its condition. Do that same thing with a sandwich and people would no longer want it after it had been on the floor.
I'd be inclined to say that people are more like sandwiches.

not only it's condition but on what that person considers to be of value.

I know, right.
I can't get my ******* earbuds to stop entangling in my pocket.
#72 to #44 - anon (01/22/2014) [-]
It depends on the kind of earbuds you have. Yeah most do tangle. The only type of earbuds that never tangle on me arre Gummi brand. Good enough for listening to music and I still have them after 4 years. They're not the best quality if you're really picky about volume, base, and all that other stuff; they're good enough to get the job done. The only thing that's degraded is the paint which faded off due to years of use.

Try and take it to the bank they'll tell you to go **** yourself. I've tried
User avatar #93 to #82 - ryapr (01/22/2014) [-]
if you go to any american bank, and the you still have 5/8ths of the bill then it is still accepted as it's face value.
#170 to #93 - achmedmuhammed (01/24/2014) [-]
What part of I've tried it don't you understand. I went with about 6/8ths of a dollar that they refused to accept. The bank said that they need at least both complete serial numbers which is about 9/10ths of a bill
User avatar #171 to #170 - ryapr (01/24/2014) [-]
well that bank is full of assholes, I've done it on more than one occasion before and never had a single issue with it.

I gave my friend this speech when he was feeling down the other day, but I didn't have any money so I used his phone.

I think he might have a serious case of depression though, cuz he didn't feel better, he started crying and said he didn't want the phone back.

I should get him some help.

Absolute tripe.

Not only are speeches like this promoting the idea that people are special and amazing by doing nothing (thereby reinforcing complacency), but it also seems to suggest that people all have an inherent equal value that will never change. This is not true, a man's value is measured by their effect on the world.
User avatar #58 to #40 - Sethorein ONLINE (01/22/2014) [-]
people are pretty ******* special regardless of contribution... if you wanna compare people to each other it gets more complicated... especially since people would take a mighty **** on anyone who excelled in social science or classics while licking the ground science majors spit on...

Smartest man I ever met was a professor in classics and american history. I'm a neuro major and my current profs are part of teams who completely revolutionize our understanding of the human mind, but none of them had anywhere near the impact on their students that my history prof did... So even if his faculty is less objectively beneficial to society (which could also be disputed but meh) does that immediately invalidate where he exceeds those who are more beneficial to society?

I think it's basically saying that being shat on by circumstance does not define who you are, but how you choose to deal with that circumstance (therefore your character) does.

Why? Is that person even still alive, and why do people have it in their reaction folder?

But then over time inflation increases and the value of that $20 declines. How's your day now?

I had a guest speaker and say this at my highschool, long long time ago. However I just remember him holding up the bill and crumpling and **** , but didn't really remember what he said. All I remember was everyone just wanting the money and not giving a single **** to whatever the guy said. And the guy didn't give the money in the end.

Greedy cunt.
