Why simply say Page cannot be found?
OR Error 404?
Or "Cannot find the server"?
What cheers me up when I have to refresh a page on TheOtaku.com is the funny little sayings that arent as dull as simply- "You fail. Try again."
Seriously, I want a T- shirt with all of these messages! These cheer me up when I would otherwise be angry that the page did not load. I take these as reminders to not stress over the little things that can be easily fixed. When facing a problem, it is easier when you are calm and thinking clearly. So just relax!
You Can Recover - Believe It!

"Before you put on a frown, make absolutely sure there are no smiles available."
I love this quote because it admits that there are times for frowning, but also makes it clear that happiness is important. There are many things that can make us sad, angry, or frustrated, but we have the choice, more often than not, to decide whether or not we allow those things to control our emotions. Before you let something ruin your day, take a deep breath, look at the situation, and see if is really worth being upset over.
That isnt to say that your feelings dont matter, because they most certainly do. The point is that emotions can be irrational, and it is important to see the situation from every angle. Also, it is important that if something is hurting your feelings, you dont try to ignore it, or pretend it is not there. Even if you try to hide your hurt, or keep it quietly inside of you, those feelings will be with you and affect the way you live. If you can do something about your source of pain, then try to calmly correct your situation. Confide in your friends, change your circumstances, and know that only you have the power to control you.
Smiling is a beautiful ability, that shows we are happy. So the next time you measure your sorrows, dont forget to also remember your joys!
