As the week winds down, we wind down with some tidbits for your information, education, health, and enjoyment.

Quote of the Week: “I am a slow walker, but I never walk back.”  — Abraham Lincoln

Humor Break: Last year I entered the New York City Marathon. I was running in last place. It was embarrassing. And the guy who was in front of me, second to last, was making fun of me. He said, “Hey buddy, how does it feel to be last?”. I replied: “Do you want to know?” and I dropped out.

Stat of the Week: Do you suffer from PAS … or know someone who does?  Apparently a large number are afflicted.  What, pray tell, is PAS you ask?  It is a psychiatric condition known as “intermittent explosive disorder.”  It is road rage without a car.  PAS is … ta, da, Pedestrian Aggressiveness Syndrome.  It occurs in urban areas, especially with someone wearing headphones (who typically walks at 4.64 feet per second) who encounters a tourist (who typically walks at 3.79 feet per second).  Before you laugh it off, check out the 15 clues you might be PAS oriented.  And if you got it bad, you can always join the faux-PAS group on Facebook called “I Secretly Want to Punch Slow Walking People in the Back of the Head” that boasts nearly 15,000 members.  Or not.

Action Tip: We here at Envisa Learning always advocate exercise as a means of staying healthy.  Use your noon hour to take a walk.  And if you happen to be in an urban area, check you your feelings about how others are walking … cuz if you are walking for your health you are probably walking faster than those other idiots clogging up the sidewalks!

Volunteering: MS and Cancer Society, among others, have walk-a-thons during the warmer months all over the USA.  Check for one near you.
