Not so sure the math checks out on this one.

oh it sure doesn't, makes me irrationally angry

It's not irrational, there's nothing worse than a very motivated person who doesn't understand math!

I was not born standing up. Am I gonna die?

I'm not actually sure "never give up" is good advice. Sometimes giving up is an important step forward. At the least it's important to regularly reevaluate your situation.

It's like that quote about insanity. If something isn't working, don't keep doing it.


ComeFromTheWater t1_j1m7rzr wrote

That doesn’t mean you’re giving up. It just means you find a different way forward.


izzymaxwell t1_j1ibxhs wrote

Totally! I think we can simplify it to "the definition of insanity is never giving up" 😆

Sort of, but in more of an umbrella term you might have a goal and multiple ways of getting there. "quitting" a certain path and taking another could attain the same goal, so one could say never give up because there might be a better way.

People think giving up means giving up on the goal not the path you are taking there.

yeah just imagine a toxic relationship. can't just say "never give up." in that case it's more like "give up on this bitch and find someone else"

Fall seven times, go to doctor for a brain scan or buy a wheelchair


DeepGas4538 t1_j1k8m1q wrote

what if I fall off the wheelchair? congress is waiting on the answer.

Fall seven times get up seven times. Why are you getting up an extra time. The getting up is the action after falling down. Fall down, get up, fall down, get up, so on and so forth. So you fall down seven times, you get up seven times.

My only rational conclusion is you get up out of your bed so the first Get up. Fall one leads to Get up 2 and so on and so on.

Fall seven times it might be time to shovel and salt your walkway. It's cold out there folks. Be safe.


BloonH8TR t1_j1j0ksv wrote

My conclusion. Getting up in the morning is 1, first fall leads to get up 2, second fall leads to get up 3 and so on and so forth

of course you would stand eight times, you got to fall first

Bro 8 is a number it can't stand up

Echo Charles on the Jocko Podcast had an epic rant about this some years back. I'd honestly never considered it until that point.

A literal impossibility If you fall 7 times it implies you are standing B E F O R E the first fall so you can only stand up 7 times. You cannot stand up when you're already standing.

Fall seven times, check your fucking shoelaces before you take another step

This gets harder when you know that you married a wrong person and due to the fact you are a parent you will be stuck in this shit for many years.

It is like falling every day and having to mentally stand up every morning.

I stopped getting up, why am I still falling?
