You’d better start learning how to throw a football.

Who gives a $#*@?

Something about jealousy being the most boring of the sins.

Not the most boring, but the least enjoyable.  Why?  Because you feel bad about yourself that you are jealous and it doesn't make you feel any better like gluttony or adultery...at least there is some pleasurable aspect in virtually every other sin.  But jealously...you lose both ways!

It is not jealousy at all. Maybe some envy?

I really like Tom. He has got it all and I am really happy for him.

Now if these stupid oil stocks could go up a bit...

That's a pet peeve of mine when people use "jealous" to mean "envious".  You are jealous of something you have and want to protect, you are envious of something someone else has and you want.

Envy is worse, because it is completely unproductive.  It is prudent to protect what you have to a point, but jealousy can get way out of hand too. Especially if it is another human being you are jealously protecting, because you don't own other human beings.

Whenever I feel a bit envious I find it useful to remind myself that I have it better than the vast majority of humans that have ever lived (billions and billions of them) and it makes being envious feel a little ridiculous.

It's sobering to watch some random news from other parts of the world.  Most people's everyday lives are orders of magnitude more difficult than mine.

Can't see anything to envy in this video. I prefer having my time to myself, a nice place to ride my bike, and a good book to read. I bet I'm happier than Tom Brady when I do that ;)

If Drew Brees was throwing that pass, the guy in the boat would not have had to move.
