I heard an interesting proverb just now, which really made me think:

"Fall seven times, stand up eight."
- Japanese Proverb

I'm sorry, but fall even two or three times, and you should change your shoes, or stop drinking, or maybe even just sit your freaking clumsy ass down before you get hurt. No way I'm letting myself fall seven times in a row, and if you fall seven times in a row near me you better have some God damned life insurance, because I'll strangle you to death just so I don't have to hear the constant thudding.

Stupid proverbs.
