Optimum or Maximum?

My PE teacher once told me this:

There's a different between optimum and maximum. Optimum means you give an enough amount of efforts for a goal so it happen. Maximum means you give all your efforts for a goal so it happen that you could die.
Now, the question is, will you give your maximum for a goal that's really worth it? No one's willing to die anyway, I presume. I didn't say that someone will die after giving their maximum efforts anyway, I just said that someone MIGHT die because of it.
And when I got a question like that, all I can think is: "GOD NEVER LEAVES YOU ALONE". Your effort that been given, will give you a proportional result back. So, the only thing that you can do to make something works, is that you work that out. At least, that's what I believe.

Adios! ^^

When those comforting words, somehow, became the burden itself. Then you will feel not just comforted and motivated, but also under pressure at the same time.

Bronte

Now your bowl is empty
And your feet are cold
And your body cannot stop rocking
I know
It hurts to let go
Since the day we found you
You have been our friend
And your voice still
Echoes in the hallway of this house
But now
It's the end

We will be with you
When you're leaving
We will be with you
When you go
We will be with you
And hold you till you're quiet
It hurts to let you go

We will be with you
You will stay with us

I accidentally found a song of Gotye in Youtube, titled Somebody I Used to Know. It's an unfamiliar name for me, because apparently he's an Australian artist. -ok, it's not a good reason I use. truthfully speaking, I wasn't following new songs since a long time ago- And so I played that song, at first it's kind of hard to follow the music, but then as the song was playing and I read the lyrics, I was like "Wow!". 
It's a refreshing music for me. So original yet nicely composed. Then I browsed more Gotye's videos and found this song, Bronte. The melody successfully make the lyrics more "deep". I just love it.
Of course there're lot more songs of Gotye, but so far I've just browsed some, and my favorites are Somebody I Used to Know, Bronte, and Hearts a Mess. Unique music and great lyrics make them perfect. Maybe you can enjoy his music too.

Adios! ^^

I got this little test from my friend, that got it from her friend, that got it from her boyfriend, who got it from the company he's been trained. In short term: I got this from my friend's boyfriend, indirectly.

So, here's the question:

It starts to rain heavily outside your house when these 5 things happens together at a time: your baby cries, there's a phone ringing, your water tap opened keep the water won't stop running, there's a guest knocking and waiting outside your door, and your laundry start to get wet by rain. What would you do first, second, third, fourth, and last?

Note:
The assumption is all yours.
and NO CHEATING please. hehe.. :D

Old games are never too old

I've been playing some old games since few weeks ago. I didn't know when it started, I just browsed some games I played in my childhood time. Kind of hard to recall each game's name, all I did was giving some keywords in the google, hoping it would give what I really mean. And I started playing these:

1. Prehistorik 2

This game is about an ancient man doing some adventure through different ages. He have to find a finish sign for each level, while collecting foods and facing kinds of animals as enemies. He's armed with a club used to whacks the enemies and finds hidden invisible foods and places all over the stage. Each level has its own secret code that can be loaded from the first. There're so many cheats of its secret codes in the web, but somehow, in my console, the codes were different. So I guess, it's different for each game played. I don't know.
I think I was playing better back when I was a kid. Now, I couldn't pass 4th level yet. And because there're so many hidden foods and places, I was trying to find its level maps. And I found them at its official site here. You can also download the game itself there.
