Kiernan Dougherty on Jocko Podcast
Jocko Willink is ex special forces and talks about war, discipline and other interesting things. Parts can be tough to listen to, especially in this episode, but this episode is extraordinary. Kiernan is a veteran war and natural disaster photographer in places like Iraq, Belfast and the indian ocean tsunami. He tells his story on this podcast.
If you like college basketball and have the humor of a college student, you need to read this blog called Club Trillion: Views From the End of the Bench.
Club Trillion is an exclusive club founded in 2007 by three very handsome and very financially well-off Ohio State basketball players–Kyle Madsen (#15), Danny Peters (#13), and myself. We named ourselves “Club Trillion” because as athletically limited white folk, we found ourselves riding the bench for the Buckeyes. When the time came for us to get in, there would usually only be 1 minute remaining in the game and after sitting down for 39 minutes, we really had no interest in trying to be all that productive. So we devised the plan of trying to get the “trillion” which occurs when we play 1 minute and do absolutely nothing that would appear in the box score, thus making our stat line say 1 minute played followed by a bunch of zeroes. I know what you are saying to yourself right now. You are saying, “That is side-splittingly hilarious. These guys are probably just a comical party waiting to happen.” You are absolutely right.
His post about being stuck in an elevator with some of his teammates is laugh out loud funny as well.
Hopefully he can parlay his successful blog into some sort of a job after college that lets him avoid cubicle life to continue to put his superb practical joking and writing skills to good use!
