I'm Keith. I'm 27. I'm Australian. I've never really been the kind of person who fits in, anywhere.

I tend to stand out, for better or worse. I tend not to care what most people think of me, except the people who encourage me to keep being me.

I'm the kind of guy who will quite happily walk down the street in a trenchcoat, top hat, vest, and tie, and not care about the weird looks I get.

I've got three piercings, and one tattoo. I'm looking to get more tattoos, but I'm not sure about more piercings.

I vent my frustrations, anxiety, and depression by writing what could be described as rock music inspired poetry, and frequently by just simply writing about them on this very blog.

I believe the world would be a better place, if we could each make an effort, at least once per day, to make someone else smile.

A friend recently asked me if it would be possible to see what my hands look like.

Of all my photos,  I think these 10 show them the best. 

Also featured: A selection of my home-made, and store bought sleeves, my shelf filled with my collection of Guinness World Records books, My hand as compared to a life-size cast of Michael Jackson’s hand, a cicada, a giant stick insect, my pocket watch that I use for therapeutic reasons, and what happens when photoshop gets used on me.

*bell rings*

This was an excellent match, though. Even if Team D-X didn’t take it seriously at times, everyone (except Mike Knox) put on a good show.

Overly competitive people need to remember:

A competition only proves something if everyone involved is aware it’s a competition, and agrees to (and follows) the same rules.

shitloadsofwrestling:

I would no joke be dead today if it weren’t for wrestling.

Every bit of this. Gospel.

Pretty sure I could say the same thing.

And may have said something along these lines in the “Thank you for doing what you do” letter I gave to Emma when I got the chance to meet her.

You would think that teenagers would be the rudest customers when really it’s mostly old, middle-aged people. 

It’s probably the people who were teenagers when that whole stereotype started. They just never learned to control themselves in public.

For the first time ever, a paralyzed man can move his fingers and hand with his own thoughts thanks to an innovative partnership between The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Battelle.

WHAT THE FUCK WHY ISN’T THIS IN EVERY SINGLE NEWS SITE AND SHOW ON THE PLANET WE’RE LITERALLY CURING SPINAL PARALYSIS

It’s not in the news, because every time something like this gets into major news sources, then turns out to have some kind of serious flaw, (it is only in testing stages, after all) and the development gets halted, we end up with a situation where it gives millions of people false hope. It should only hit the mainstream news once it’s fully tested and approved for widespread use in humans. Although, the fact it’s reached human trials is extremely positive.

Instead of focussing on how different or similar you are to everyone else… Consider how much you’re truly like yourself.

Because if you’re willing to give up who you really feel you are, just to impress or spite someone else, you’re giving up far too much.

Final thought of the day: It bothers me…

When video games have serious restrictions on what you can do, and where, if they’re advertised as “open world”.

I found, for example, the first two Dead Rising games to be quite frustrating… Because as much as I’d like to explore, and appreciate the world the designers created, there’s rarely enough time to do so, and most of the more interesting places are locked unless you fulfill specific requirements.

I also get bothered by games that focus way too heavily on online multiplayer. I mean, I don’t have a problem with multiplayer modes in games… I just get annoyed when it’s extremely obvious that the game’s single player content suffered because the designers were too focussed on making the online component “Perfectly balanced”.

My father had a tendency to say “Do as I say, not as I do”.

I took half of that advice. 

I don’t do the things he told me to do… but I also don’t do the things he does.

All in all, by using him as the antithesis of everything I want to be, I believe I developed into a decent human being.

He’s got to be some kind of ancient God of beauty because this is ridiculous.

Petition for him to play a swashbuckling pirate or a starship captain or an ancient gladiator or, really, ANYTHING where we can just look at him and drool and dream for ninety minutes.

i wonder what it feels like to be the most beautiful man in the world

For some reason, Pre-Cybernetic Transformation Cyrax from Mortal Kombat is the first thing I thought of when I saw this guy.

Final thought of the day: Sometimes, I really worry about some people’s futures.

Every so often, you’ll be out in public, and see a kid, with it’s parents, or parent, and you can see that this kid is either being neglected entirely, or treated very poorly. Whenever I see this, it upsets me, because I know that things like this can cause serious damage later in life.

I mean, where I live, it’s an alarmingly common sight to see a kid crying, only for a parent to scream, in a full view of everyone in a public place, “Shut the fuck up, or I’ll hit you”, or things of that nature, without even stopping to try to figure out -why- the kid is crying in the first place.

For example, I saw pretty much that exact exchange take place once, after watching the kid get his hand caught, and twisted, by the shopping trolley his mother was pushing. It looked pretty painful. Definitely enough to hurt most adults, so it’s no surprise this kid was crying. The poor kid probably has no chance of growing up mentally balanced. 

Also on the topic of Sydney:

You can’t really appreciate the size of The Sydney Harbour Bridge, without getting right up close to it. Even these photos don’t really do it too much justice.

To put it into some perspective for people in the USA, though… The statue of liberty is 305 feet, or 93 metres tall, measured from the ground, to the tip of the torch. The Sydney Harbour Bridge is 134 metres, or 440 feet tall at the highest point, That’s a full 135 feet, or 41 metres taller.
