Kipchoge Keino, aka Hezekiah Kipchoge Keino, is a retired athlete who ran for the country of Kenya. Throughout his career, Kip earned almost a dozen medals, half of which were gold.

He had been diagnosed with gallstones and doctors warned another race might kill him. Crippled with pain, Keino initially agreed not to take part in the 1500m, but on race day had a change of heart.

On the bus ride to the Olympic stadium, the bus became stuck in traffic and this is where the story gets interesting. Realizing the bus was going to be late, Kip got off and ran the remaining 2 miles to the Olympic stadium while carrying his equipment.

He then registered with 20 minutes to spare, got himself ready, and walked out onto the track and won a gold medal.

“At around the beginning of 2014 I was on a bus home from school in the UK with two male friends, both of whom I’d known for about 10 years. I trusted them both, even though one of them was a bit more sexist, racist and generally more intolerant. I was wearing a warmer winter school uniform at the time (and some might describe me as a bit frumpy but I like it that way). A knee-length skirt, winter tights, a shirt, jumper and a blazer.

We were all at the back of a double-decker bus. That’s when things started to get weird. We were talking like we normally did, then the guy that’s just generally horrible started asking very personal questions - really, really personal information. He kept talking about how I had ‘giant tits’ too. I suppose I may have came off as flirting with him when I laughed awkwardly? But I was really uncomfortable. The other guy, who’s quite friendly and nice just sat and laughed.

After a couple of minutes of me denying him any answers he decided it would be okay to insult me and grope me. He called me a ‘fat bitch’, then proceed the attempt to grab my breasts and talk about how ‘nobody’s given me attention like this’. I was extremely embarrassed in front of a bus full of people and nobody did anything. I had to wait to my stop to get off since there was an enormous stretch of the bus journey with no bus stops.

After I kept slapping his hand away I got annoyed. I wanted to punch him in the throat but I didn’t. I cursed at him and told him to leave me alone then I was told to ‘watch my language’ by a woman in the row in front because she had a small child with her. Yet she said nothing about the events preceding this?

Was I really the one in the wrong? I haven’t told my parents about this because they’d make too much of a big deal. I was 13 at the time.”

Some people take horoscopes far too seriously. We were arranged into groups for Arabic presentations and this girl asked my sign. I told her I was an Aries and she was like “I’m a Cancer so this is going to be difficult.” Like, they are fun to read but I can’t deal with people who literally believe they can’t work with certain signs. Like, get the wheels on the bus.

Ugh can’t wait for all depressed individuals to get thrown under the media bus because this asshole ‘committed suicide.’

No, he’s a fucking murderer. Suicidal people are a threat to themselves. Bad people are a threat to society.

This is barely any different than a mass shooting and then killing yourself, it’s disgusting and I won’t stand for people using mental illness as a scapegoat.

Hello Michael. Is my thumb a finger or not? This is very confusing to me. Thank you and do not get hit by a bus. It would hurt🐼

Grammatically no. Physiologically yes.

anonymous asked:

that recent one asking to teach them how to take the bus isnt sitting right with me, like i get where its coming from but i grew up in a smallish town and was terrified of public transport, i used to walk for hours to get the store to avoid the bus. and i can totally see someone asking for help if they're in a new place and nervous about needing a bus for the first time especially if they're neuroatypical like me.

I get this, and we’ve been getting a bunch of asks about this.  We don’t know the context, but yeah without context it comes off weirdly, with some really problematic tones.  I’m pretty sure it’s queued, but if the submitter could send us some context that’d be awesome!

"You don’t have to be in a sleeping bag in a gutter to be invisible," Bess said to Boy, "not if you know what you’re doing. It’s like getting a seat to yourself on the bus. You smile, make eye contact, pat the seat. Most of the magic I know is tricks like that, magics so old most of it is probably not even magic anymore. Kind of like sex," she added, just to see him blush.

i have to meet her at her job tomorrow before i have work so i’m gonna get on a bus super early and take it over to the hospital she works at and get my phone back (is this like some extreme plot to get me involuntarily admitted or some shit like really you work at a hospital are you sure)

Me and 3 other students from my school are interning at a Tourism Council, and there’s a gift shop with snacks and stuff and every day we go in and get snacks at lunch time and there’s this bus driver who’s seen us go in a few times. Me and one of the girls went in today to get a drink and popcorn and when we went to pay the owner stopped us and told us that the bus driver went in yesterday after we had left, bought a soda and gave him a $50 bill and told him to put the rest on retainer so that when we went in we wouldn’t have to spend our own money. he said “they’re in college, it’s hard enough for them. they don’t need to be spending any more of their money.”
