    I don't know how many you have seen a movie called Apollo 13, but I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a good bit of theatrical viewing. There's a particular quote in the movie that holds a lot of meaning for me, I don't know if this is quoted word for word from the true events, but nonetheless.

    The context, in a very condensed sentence: The Apollo 13 mission has all but failed, everyone is giving up hope, the 3 astronauts that were supposed to land on the moon are now fighting for their lives in space.
    * Spoiler alert *

    They overcome all odds and manage to make a plan to get the astronauts home safely. Everyone lives happily ever after.

    Moral of the story: Never give up. You've only failed once you accept defeat.

    Just something that's been on my mind today :D Happy money making!
