Story Time

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.


He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.


The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.


The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous "yes".


The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.


"Now," said the professor, as the laughter subsided, "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things in life. Your God, your family, your children, your health, your friends, and your favorite passions: things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, and your car. The sand is everything else: the small stuff.


"If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued, "there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first; the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."


One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend."

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the two cups of coffee.

BEST QUOTES I KNOW

- When you see a person who has been given more than you in money and beauty, look to those, who have been given less.

- To overcome evil with good is good, to resist evil by evil is evil.

- The strong man is not the good wrestler; the strong man is only the one who controls himself when he is angry.

- Much silence and a good disposition, there are no two things better than these.

- Kindness is a mark of faith, and whoever is not kind has no faith.

- The best of the houses is the house where an orphan gets love and kindness.

- What is Faith? When your good deed pleases you and your evil deed grieves you, you are a believer. What is Sin? When a thing disturbs (the peace of) your heart, give it up.

In Memory of Maggot.

He was a great guy from what I hear I take his story to heart because of all that guy had to go through. 1515 days ago is the last time any of us saw him hear in Urbaniville. He was a great guy truly missed by all urbs.

James was and still is one of the most faithful friends I've had. We met a long time ago, back in elementary school(1976 on the playground), were in band together in jr. high both playing trombone, and became good friends in highschool. We both joined the ministry together around 1993, although he had been licensed previously way back in the 1980's! It was his dearest desire to preach the gospel of our LORD Jesus, The Messiah(Christ) to thousands and even millions if via satallite some day. His calling is Evangelist-one who not only prepares home churches to train others in ministry, but also goes out preaching in revivals/ many different locations to encourage, extol and prepare people in this life. Anyone who knew him understood he was very realistic yet believing things must be understood or sometimes just accepted in faith(trust in God's goodness/plan).
He never went around with his head in the clouds prefering to meet life head on, with his rocksolid yet sanguine attitude. He loved to be in the center of things and he has been a leader on many websites-urbaniacs, utopia,fallen sword to name a few. He was a roleplayer like myself and others of our group back in the "Old days"-par excellance"(Until we gave up those rpg games to focus on more important relationships and work) He loved Halflings/hobbits and his favorite was Tarus Redwing a tallfellow rogue who travelled making maps and working as a cobbler with Meagan the wood elf archer. Some of those stories appear in "The lands of Barrondale". He got me hooked on IHOP and loved corned beef hash with medium easy-over eggs. I could always leave my yogurt in his fridge too, cause he wouldn't touch the stuff) ..and he could leave his steamed shrimp or mushrooms in my fridge cause I wouldn't touch that . ha. He loved to eat but had such a wonderfully high metabolism that he found it hard to gain weight. "Now thats a mixed blessing". His passion was singing and sermon preparation and because he has a good wife in Pam, she helped him fulfill many of those desires. He also loved a good sci-fi movie especially a superhero flick, and it was a real joint idea to start the "Misfits Chronicles". He also helped write our first story "Into the wasteland" a post apocolyptic story. He always wanted everyone to not only enjoy the website but get involved and we both worked to encourage that because it was our community. He wanted to bring out the best in people. I feel with certainty he will be there to welcome each of us believers when we pass over to God's Heaven too! He will be missed and remembered well.

Tempest Made this story all for him. I would like everyone to remember and love this great urb even if you did or didn't know him. He went through all of his problems in life and still had time to spike Urbaniacs up and make it more exciting for everyone else.Please remember him, he is watching over all of us urbs keeping a good eye on us . Thank you for reading my story.And remembering the great person/urb Maggot.

Football (Soccer)

This is for English Premier League

The premier league is back and it looks like this season we will have plenty of teams challenging for the title. These include Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal. I think these four teams at the end of the season will be hanging around near the top place; I think this because Man Utd have Van Persie, Rooney, Kagawa, Vidic, Cleverly, Fletcher and many other match changing players not forgetting Welbeck and Chicharitio. Chelsea have Hazard, Mata, Oscar and Torres and Hazard is really getting into form against the weaker teams but he has not been on form against some of the top teams. Arsenal have a better team from last year although they lost Van Persie to United they bought it Podalski, Giroud and Cazorla who has a had terrific season so far and with Wilshere coming back from injury this Arsenal team have the potential to be challenging for the title. Finally, Manchester City, last years winners have so far looked weak at the back in their first 7 matches but in their last match they were looking like the team they were last year. Although besides Javi Garcia they have not added a BIG name to their squad they still have maybe the second best attack in the league with Tevez, Balotelli, Aguero, Dzecko, Silva and Toure they look like a team who may challenge for the title again this year if their defenders perform when needed.

I personally think Manchester United will win the league because of the attacking options and I know their defence looks weak but that is because their main defender, Vidic is injured and they only have Ferdinad and Evans as their first team Centre Backs because Jones and Smalling are both injured as well.

From a neutral view I think Chelsea might have the upper edge this season because they have bought in of the best youngsters but he is also a SUPER PLAYER, Hazard and because so far their defence has looked solid.

Ps - I am a Man Utd fan :)

Urbaniacs

I discovered urbaniacs by my best favorite cousin,Osmeliio,who is such a nice,generous person,and who I can always count on him no matter what.If it weren't for him,I wouldn't have known about this site.

Profound sadness

This is a sad and bad time for urb. We have lost a great Urb and Admin named Love Child. Dupers are the reason why she quit. Now I am going to take a stand and I want all the honest players to take a stand with me. If you suspect a player of cheating or duping report them. Not only that but battle them calling them out. If you diss them as well That will be fine but this is not a diss squad hit but I demand they get ran out of town for ruining the site. This is the last straw I will not back my stand I don't care if you are hero, villain, vigilante, nomad or Beatnik the cheaters ruin the site for all of us.

Love_Child Urbaniac of the Year!

I'd like to say that It has been awhile since I have gotten on the site. I've been very busy but I have been able to get on a lot more lately and when I did, it seemed as if urbaniacs had been having some trouble with certain situations. But I have noticed that Love_Child has been working very hard on making the site better and she has already done so much for the site. I appreciate everything she has done and I think she should be the Urbaniac of the Year! I'm sure many other Urbs would agree with that! Thank You. :)

Love_Child

has been one of the best managers, the most comprehensive and the most loving sincerely friendly and could decier that is what most stands out urb. why she does it all

you are the best love_Child

:D

Truly a Week in the History of Urbaniacs

This week has been very sad and hard for alot of urbs but I know its been the hardest for Love_Child. Sadly she has decided enough is enough and now she is leaving her duties as the admin.

This week dupers have returned, there's is during very often and people are cheating.

Love has been the most dedicated person for Urb. She is the reason why this site still runs and I hope she stays playing urbaniacs as a normal player.

Thank you Love_Child for all your work to the site and I am sorry for my part in the first during era.
