What’s the Dumbest Thing You’ve Ever Done?
Reza Baluchi tried to run across the ocean from Florida to Bermuda in a bubble. I wish I was making this up. I’m not. The Coast Guard had to pick him up about 70 miles off the coast of Florida. He was disoriented and exhausted when they plucked him out of the sea.
Did this man have no friends? Wasn’t there anybody in his life that would slap him up beside the head and say, “you’re being stupid!” Apparently not. Just like there was nobody to slap Michael Jackson when he bought the Elephant Man’s bones, or invited little children to spend the night, or get the 14th nose job. There was no friend or relative to slap George Lucas when he altered the original Star Wars Trilogy.
That’s what we need in our lives. A friend who will let us know when we’re going down the wrong path. Especially when we’re going down the wrong path in a bubble.
