"Life is too short to spend with assholes"  Kesselskramer. (2010). No title.  Amsterdam. 

We had chosen a really powerful words. The world is full of assholes, everyday, everytime. Statistics says an average person will confront someone he dislikes in a rate of twice a day.

There are tons of facts that can transform the personality of anyone in just seconds.
