Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow , for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.
A fisherman may have tipped the scales after catching what may be the world’s biggest Opah fish - tipping the scales at more than 12 stone. After a gruelling 30 minute battle with the mighty fish, fisherman, Joe Ludlow, 47, managed to haul the whopper on board. Weighing in at 181 pounds, the mammoth catch managed to outweigh the current record by 18 pounds. But in bizarre twist, two other anglers alongside Joe also managed an unprecedented feat by each catching an Opah on the same day.
