If we’ve learned anything after watching 16 full seasons of Grey’s Anatomy, it’s that the surgeons at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital have a way with words. Whether you’re in the midst of heartbreak or in need of a pep talk, take a look at these quotes that touch on love, loss, friendship, and the stress of everyday life. (And if you’re a true fan, challenge yourself by figuring out which episode each quote is from … before binge-watching the series for the hundredth time to confirm your answers.)
Don’t let what he wants eclipse what you need. He’s very dreamy, but he’s not the sun. You are.
I love you, in a really really big, pretend to like your taste in music, let you eat the last piece of cheesecake, hold a radio over my head outside your window, unfortunate way that makes me hate you, love you. So pick me, choose me, love me.
And if you can’t do it, if you aren’t willing to keep looking for light in the darkest of places without stopping, even when it seems impossible, you will never succeed.
Oh screw beautiful! I’m brilliant! If you want to appease me, compliment my brain.
You were like coming up for fresh air. It’s like I was drowning and you saved me.
The only time I don’t feel like a ghost is when you look at me, because when you look at me, you see me. You see me. This is me.
There’s an end to every storm. Once all the trees have been uprooted. Once all the houses have been ripped apart. The wind will hush, the clouds will part, the rain will stop, the sky will clear in an instant. But only then, in those quiet moments after the storm, do we learn who was strong enough to survive it.
It’s good to be scared. It means you still have something to lose.
As human beings, sometimes it’s better to stay in the dark, because in the dark there may be fear, but there is also hope.
You are my person. You will always be my person.
It doesn’t matter how tough we are. Trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives. Trauma messes everybody up. But maybe that’s the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all that is what keeps us moving forward. It’s what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.
Please, don’t chase me anymore, unless you’re ready to catch me.
Change … we don’t like it, we fear it. But we can’t stop it from coming. We either adapt to change, or we get left behind. It hurts to grow. Anybody who tells you it doesn’t, is lying. But here’s the truth: Sometimes, the more things change, the more they stay the same. And sometimes, oh, sometimes, change is good. Sometimes, change is … everything
Breakthroughs don’t happen because of the medicine. Real breakthroughs happen because someone is scared to death to stop trying.
Not all wounds are superficial. Most wounds run deeper than we can imagine. You can’t see them with the naked eye. And then, there are the wounds that take us by surprise. The trick with any kind of wound or disease, is to dig down and find the real source of the injury. And once you’ve found it … try like hell to heal that sucker.
I know I haven’t had a sex blog in a while and I didn’t want any of you getting dry out there so here we go.
Did you know that the clitoris is the only bodily organ that exists solely for sexual pleasure? And blue balls isn’t just a term made up by horny (and disgruntled) teenage boys? It’s actually a real problem!

Fact: Orgasms can lower a woman’s risk of heart disease, stroke, breast cancer, and depression.
Don’t get me wrong there are so many amazing characters in this show so narrowing it down to my top 10 is a hard task but here I go.
10. Dr. Preston Burke
I know what a lot of people would say, I know he really hurt Cristina and everything he did with the Harper Avery without her name was not okay, but he I think he really came back and made it up to her when he gave her the opportunity of a lifetime and that honestly made him look so much better in my eyes.
9. Richard Webber
I thought Richard would be higher on the list but as I think about it Richard was a big asshole that had a handful of good moments but I do believe that were he never to be on the show it would lack a very important role model for the younger characters to look up to as well as his own personal demons he struggled with added a certain depth to the storyline.
8. Maggie Pierce
Maggie came in at just the right time in the show, Lexi was gone and we needed something new for Meredith to go through that wasn’t life threatening for a change but, I do like Maggie as a character she’s young, she’s smart and she brings a lot to the table.
7. Jackson Avery
Jackson is a very pretty face I think he may be one of my favorite male characters on the show, his initial relationship really was my favorite it was truly sad when it ended.
6. Jo Wilson
Jo is one bad ass girl power type of girl I love how strong she is and how she makes women feel all around love her but kind of wish she would have asked for help with her husband a lot sooner.
5. Arizona Robbins
All I have to say is that I thoroughly enjoyed happy pre-plane crash Arizona, after the crash when she was mean to Callie and then cheated on her that was not her finest hour but when she starts working under Herman is when I really start to respect her the most.
4. Callie Torres
Callie is by far the funniest character with the shittiest love life cheated on by both spouses and still kept her humor but honestly I really wish all the drama between Callie and Arizona never would have happened I would have loved for them to remain happy and remain together.
3. April Kepner
I am not going to lie but I hated April when she first showed up but all she went through really changed her into the kind of person that I look and and just think “wow what an amazing person” even when she joined the Army I didn’t doubt for a second that she didn’t need to be there.
2. Lexie Grey
Lexi oh man she is number 2 on the list mainly because I needed more time with her, her love story with Mark needed to be explored more and she was gone way too quickly she was played flawlessly and her character progression though the time she was there was beyond outstanding.
1. Owen Hunt
I love Owen he’s a soft caring and stern simply put he is an all around well rounded character, Owen and Cristina was honestly a missed connection but I really couldn’t imagine an Owen Hunt not wanting children as well as I couldn’t really imagine Cristina wanting children but Owen Hunt 100% best Grey’s Character!
My First Fallout Experience Was The Absolute Worst Time I’ve Ever Had Playing…
I’ve been a die hard fan of the Fallout franchise for many, many years now. By far it’s my favorite game series and one I’ve played over again easily a dozen times each. Typically when someone finds their favorite game it’s a fantastic and exciting experience, for me, not so much. I was unfortunate enough to experience the absolute worst the wasteland had to offer on my very first run through, and I’m talking RIGHT AWAY. An experience I’ve never seen anything come close to in my near 100 following play throughs of the series, you’d think I had a real life Luck of zero!
A few things to keep in mind before I get into it:
• The copy of Fallout 3 I purchased came with all the DLC on a second disc .
• I used to keep my TV relatively dark to get away with playing it last midnight on school nights.
Alright, so the year is 2010. I was the absolute last of my friends to play Fallout 3. I decided to pick it up from my local Game Stop after hearing my cousin talk it up for quite some time. Opting for the slightly more expensive Game Of The Year edition, I got home and began installing the DLC from the second disc. Later in the evening once everything was installed I began my journey into the Fallout universe.
Upon starting the game everything ran like expected, Tunnel Snakes, GOAT tests, Overseer , all that good stuff. Then, came time to exit the vault. Stepping into the bright blinding light of the wasteland with nothing but my vault security armor and a baseball bat, I was beyond excited to explore the Capitol Wastes. That lasted all about 15 seconds however. Taking roughly 10 steps from the door, I began to walk toward a tall black figure that stood just off to the right of the vault entrance. Immediately without haste I was greeted with a barge of fire flying towards me. That’s right, the very first enemy I encountered in Fallout was none other than an Enclave Hellfire Trooper. So here I am, level 1, never played before, wood baseball bat, and being repeatedly spawned in front of and killed by a Hellfire Trooper with a heavy incinerator. Fortunately after a dozen deaths and a few tears, I realized I had saved before I left the vault while figuring out the controls.
After loading a new save file and exiting the vault for a second time, I was able to leave in peace! Arriving in megaton I began the main quest of finding my dad. However once again my game wasn’t having it. After informing Lucas Simms about Mister Burke’s offer to blow up the town, I met the two at the saloon, as you do. Only before Burke shot Simms, Simms’ body vanished! Burke shot thin air and Lucas was nowhere to be found for the rest of the game…. alright… guess he’s dead then. Moving on. Exiting the building and coming to realize the day cycle exists, I began wandering aimlessly around Megaton unable to see a damn thing in the dark.
The run from hell wasn’t over there however, opting to help out Moira after the whole Mister Burke incident, I began to make my way down to Super Duper Mart. Now, while I was warned about the vast amount of Raiders that can be found there, what I was not warned about was a damn Deathclaw. Upon arriving to the parking lot I was greeted with the body of a wastelands being thrown about as the giant mutated monstrosity charged toward me. After several deaths, my level 2 ass had just about had enough. Finally having the sense to just turn around and run the opposite direction upon spawning, I opted to run down the map and AROUND Super Duper Mart, just far enough to not be noticed by the Deathclaw.
My plan was fool proof, until I began to get a little too close to the parking lot once again. Finding myself in [Caution] I slowly began to back away toward the bridge just south of the store before turning and running away in full sprint… well, Fallout 3’s equivalent to a “full sprint”. Sprinting right into a Mirelurk King. Keep in mind, I didn’t even know better than to try and engage it! So here I am running away from the Mirelurk King back TOWARDS the Deathclaw just praying one of them would target the other. Fortunately for me the Deathclaw wasn’t having it and decided to attack the king, providing me just enough time to get the fuck outta dodge.
After this, I promptly turned off my Xbox wondering if I had just wasted $40. It would take me about a month or two before I finally gave it a second chance with a new profile and a normal ass play through. Here I am 10+ years later still playing Fallout 3 and every other Fallout title 100 times over, yet I’ve never once experienced anything that has even come close to that first one.
I’d love to hear about your first and/or worst Fallout experience! Let me know if you’ve ever experienced anything like what I went through my first time around and be sure to check out more Fallout right here!
Congratulations! You’ve finally secured a new job, and now you want to start off on the right foot, making a positive impression on your new boss and colleagues. So, what should you NEVER do when starting a new job? Here are 10 things to avoid:
1. Don’t show up late.
You learned this in first grade, when the teacher began keeping track of tardies: Being on time matters. Especially in a new job. In fact, showing up late on the first day (or even in the first few weeks) is guaranteed to make a negative impression. To ensure you’ll be on time, test drive the route to your new job before you start so you’ll know how long it takes to get there. Factor in extra time if there’s traffic, construction, or other reasons to expect a delay.
2. Don’t dress unprofessionally.
Before starting your job, talk with the hiring manager or human resources professional to make sure you understand what constitutes acceptable attire for your new workplace. Even if you are starting a fast food job ask questions about what earrings you are allowed to wear. There’s nothing more embarrassing than showing up in a getup that doesn’t fly with your supervisors.
3. Don’t blow off orientation.
Many companies require new employees to go through an orientation or training process before starting a new position. While it may be tempting to skip these sessions or treat them lightly, don’t do it. Even if your training managers won’t be your direct supervisors, they are watching you. Avoid any behavior that could prompt a training manager to report your behavior back to your boss and team members.
4. Don’t expect hand-holding.
No matter where you’re working, there are certain processes, tools, and forms that make up the standard operating procedures of your company. You may have been introduced to these through a very organized, systematic orientation, or you may feel like you’re expected to absorb them by osmosis. If you were formally informed consider yourself fortunate. If not, don’t feel shortchanged or frustrated. Instead, take initiative and master the basics on your own.”
5. Don’t ask co-workers to do your work.
It’s understandable that you may need help or guidance during your first few weeks at a new job, and asking co-workers for assistance or just to answer questions can be perfectly acceptable. But there’s no quicker way to make enemies than to ask or expect your new co-workers to do your job for you. Remember, you were hired because managers believed in your ability to get the job done. Ask for help if you need it, but believe in yourself and prove that you can do the work yourself.
6. Don’t take too many personal calls.
The time you spend at work is for, well, work. Your employer isn’t paying you to chat with your girlfriend or even your kids’ babysitter. If friends or family members are prone to call you during working hours, remind them before you start your new job that you will now be working during certain hours and request that they avoid calling you during those hours. Make a personal policy of limiting personal phone calls and texts to your lunch break, except for during emergencies.
7. Don’t ask for more money.
Most likely, you and your employer agreed to a certain salary during the hiring process. So don’t change your mind before you even show up at work. If you agreed to the salary offered, be satisfied with that. Don’t expect more money (and don’t ask for more) until you’ve worked long enough to prove your value to the employer.
8. Don’t try to change things.
Of course you want to make a good impression as soon as you arrive at a new job, and show your new employer they made the right choice in hiring you. However, be cautious of suggesting new policies or strategies during your first few weeks, as it may not be the best way to demonstrate you are a team player. Plus, it could prompt some of your new co-workers to think twice about you as the right person for the job. At first, take time to really understand and learn your job, then over time, you can make suggestions and changes as situations arise, and as your input and expertise is called upon.
9. Don’t be dishonest.
In a new job, there will always be a learning curve, and effective supervisors understand that. Inevitably, you’ll be asked to do something or expected to know something that you don’t yet know or know how to do. Rather than saying you can complete the task on your own, be honest. Don’t be afraid to say, ‘I don’t know. Honesty is a huge differentiator. Simply look people in the eye and say unabashedly and with confidence, “I don’t know. Let me find out and get back to you. Then do it.”
10. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
You may be so eager to start your new job that you don’t want to stop and ask questions. But by skipping even the most basic questions, you are setting yourself up for failure. Rather than making a mistake that could cost the company time and money, ask questions about everything you need to know, from what your job responsibilities are to who can help you with Internet or phone problems, to how you get paid and much more.

I went through the deep web and found the top 5 shows on netflix from every year since it became an official streaming site in 2007 and put together a list of the 10 that show up the most in the top 5’s so here it goes.
Number 10: Lilyhammer
Lilyhammer is taking last place on this all time list because it had only appeared in the list of top 5’s twice, once in 2012 where it was placed at number 5 and again in 2015 where it had been placed in the number 5 slot yet again… 5 plus 5 equals 10 sorry Lilyhammer.
Number 9: Marvel’s Daredevil
Daredevil has a very special place in my heart but just not on my list, when the show came out in 2015 it started off mid top 5 at number 3 but slowly died out by showing up in the number 5 slot the next year and was never to be seen again in the top 5’s after that.
Number 8: Supernatural
Supernatural is very well known TV show for it’s dreamy cast and it’s storyline that will just hook you, the show first showed up in the top 5’s in 2007 at number 5 when netflix had just begun streaming but it grew in fame taking the number 3 slot the next year. 10/10 would recommend.
Number 7: 13 Reasons why
Don’t get me wrong 13 reasons why is an amazing show and has an amazing message not to mention super popular with the teenage crowd it made the top 5’s in 2017 at number 2 and for it being the first season coming out that year the number 2 spot is a win but in 2019 when the third season had dropped so had it’s spot on the top 5’s coming in at number 4.
Number 6: The Umbrella Academy
The Umbrella academy is one of my personal favorites having watched both seasons I can say it really should have been higher in the top 5’s coming in at number 2 in 2018 and then number 4 in 2020 this action packed show has so many twists and turns it will keep your attention until you realize you’ve watched the whole season in 1 whole day.
Number 5: Lucifer
Lucifer has a very big fan base mainly teenage girls but still there are so many of them in 2019 Lucifer hit the top 5’s at number 2 then only dropped to number 3 the following year not a bad run but you know someone probably sold their soul to get that high up on the list.
Number 4: Heart Land
Some may be mad that this is higher on the list than others but let me just explain two years in a row (2007, 2008) this show was number 1 in the top 5’s crazy to think about how hard it has to be to get number 1 and stay number 1 for two years, I don’t personally know much about this show but it was good in 07 and 08.
Number 3: Arrested Development
Arrested development showed up on the top 5’s three times 2007 and 2008 at in the number 2 slot then again in 2015 at number 4 when the show was brought back with an all new cast.
Number 2: Orange is the new Black
This show was crazy popular showing up on the top 5’s 4 times in 2015 and 2016 at number 1 then 2017 at number 4 then finally in 2019 at number 3 the effort people have to put in to watch a show so much that it is in the top 5 for almost 4 years in a row and also number 1 twice, crazy.
Number 1: Stranger Things
Stranger Things takes number 1 on the all time list because it showed up in the top 5’s four years in a row taking the number 2 spot in 2016, number 3 in 2017, and number 1 in the year 2018 and 2019. It takes a really good show to never drop below 3 four years in a row.
Well there you have it the top 10 netflix shows of all time here is the top 5’s chart if you were curious what didn’t make the cut.
For those of us who weren’t fortunate enough to seek shelter from the events of total nuclear annihilation in a state of the art underground vault brought to you by Vault-Tec, 200+ years of residual radiation will take it’s toll. Regardless of which game played host to your first encounter with one was, we all recall our first interaction with a ghoul. There are some out there who despise them, some who fight for them. and those who simply ignore them. Regardless of where you stand one thing is for certain, all ghouls are not created equally. We took a detailed look at the series and decided who are the best and worst ghouls in Fallout!
An easy going, radio listening, rotting, bartender, We meet Gob in Megaton‘s Moriarty’s Saloon in Fallout 3. Gob is no stranger to the waste ridicule on ghouls and isn’t afraid to show it. While you do have the option to continue these antics and refer to him as a zombie, the latter shows how appreciative Gob is towards the civility. Possibly the only person in Megaton without his head firmly planted up his ass, Gob is also a solid source of information about his fellow residents as well as on the journey to find your dad.
A prisoner found in the Mohave Wasteland, Raul has all the making to be one of the absolute greatest characters in the series. Voiced by legendary actor Danny Trejo, Raul comes to us with an interesting backstory, mustache, badass name, knowle of guns, and Mustache! So where does Raul fall flat? Unfortunately his biggest downfall comes by association.In a game like New Vegas with companion options such as Boone, Rex, and Gannon, Raul seems to fall by the wayside. While having the smokey, intimidating, legendary voice of Danny Trejo behind you may be awesome, the illusion of the ancient ghoul fades quick because of it. Apart from his voice and that sweet mustache, Raul lacks any interesting physical features coming off as just a typical ghoul.
Worst: Billy “Fridge Kid” Peabody
A remonderonce again, you cannot kill children in Bethesda games. Billy Peabody is found inside a fridge in The Commonwealth. At first introduction he’s just a scared kid, a 200 year old scared kid who somehow never grew up, who just wants to find his parents. However, Billy makes it increasingly difficult to help him. No only do you have to deal with the fact he is a useless temporary companion in any altercation, but if you can put up with that then his non-stop bitching will set you over the top. Seemingly every 5 minutes this kid is whining about this, crying about that. It’s just one of those times where a character fails to be sympathetic to the point of annoyance. Fortunately for the annoyed and evil players, you do encounter an option to have someone take him off your hands.
Ever dream of wandering the post apocalyptic radiation scorched earth with the decaying body of the man who proved he’s got the biggest balls in American history? Well you’re in luck!… Kinda. Actually the brother of the mayor of Diamond City, Hancock is a more recent ghoul self created by radioactive drug use. Hancock took up the name of the hung revolutionary and began serving as the laid back but never taken for granted mayor of Goodneighbor. Not only does the man have a cool, calm, collected complex that rivals Rob Van Dam, but when he gets down to it Hancock is all business. A companion that will provide hours of fun and compelling commentary and combat, Hancock is not only one of the greatest ghoul characters off all time, but companions as well.
Let’s be honest here, you blew up Megaton for one reason. You didn’t give a damn about Tenpenny, Simms, Cromwell or the entirety of the town. Moira’s endless tasks, childish voice, and oblivious personality that constantly put you in harms way crossed the line. You can’t kill her and make it out of town alive though you thought. Drastic times call for drastic measures. Boom! Bye bye Megaton. Upon returning to see your evil deed you find but one survivor. That bitch Moira Brown. Not only has she driven you to the point of using your own nuclear armaments, you did it for absolutely no reason. One last fuck you from not only the worst ghoul but one of the absolute worst characters.
Weather you love them or hate them the ghouls of Fallout impact the paths you take and the stories we make. Let me know who your favorite and least favorite Fallout ghouls are in the comment section below! Be sure to check out even more Fallout content on Style’s Rebel Radio Here!
The day of reckoning has come and love him or hate him, Todd Howard and the Bethesda team are now under the management of Microsoft. Above all else this means Todd Howard has achieved his greatest feat yet, he has sold Skyrim again. This time is the heist of the century however, $7.5 Billion. The master plan does not end there however, with the overwhelming popularity of Game Pass, Todd will be selling Skyrim to Xbox users every single month for the foreseeable future. While the future of Todd presenting the newest Bethesda titles may be up in the air, we can always look back at the wise words he has left us in the past.
“It Just Works”
There is absolutely no way we are running down the best Howardisms without kicking it off with THE most quoted line of all. “It Just Works”. Picture it, E3 2019, Bethesda Softworks own Todd Howard takes the stage, rumors have filled the air about a brand new Fallout title but have been supported by whispers of a new Skyrim variant. Then boom, there it is. Fallout 4. You sat in awe at the new iteration of the series was unveiled. The gameplay rolls on the screen as Godd Howard’s voice projects over the audience. As he explains the new world design, lore and mechanics, One assurance was made. “It Just Works”. From the game studio with more bugs than an insect exhibit, the lie that defined the future of the product and spawned millions of mems, “It Just Works”.
“Who’s Laughin’ Now?”
Coming off the cult success of the Oblivion title, ZeniMax Media’s Todd Howard sat down for a one on one interview to discuss his most recent works. During this encounter, Todd recalls how in school while other students dreamed of playing professional football, Todd always planned on becoming a game developer. To all those who doubted him Todd had one simple message, “Who’s Laughin’ Now”. Of course because the internet exists and we are all equally awful people this too was subject to become top meme material but hey, Who’s laughin now?
“You Dork, Go Back To The Chess Club
During his infamous “Who’s laughin’ now” interview came anither great line that was sadly overlooked. While the internet latched onto the previously stated line, the exclamation that follows is equally as funny in that same regard. Todd explains that while sharing his dreams of designing video games the general consensus from his peers was, “You dork, Go back to the chess club”. The line is delivered with such straight face monotone conviction that one cannot help but laugh, not to mention after a few breif moments of silence he follows it up with, “… yes I was in the chess club”. Classic Todd.
“As Far As Stupid Gimmicks Go, It’s The Best Fucking One”
When the inhumane Godd Howard begins his reign of game unveiling he knows no bounds and can not be stopped! Alongside the introduction of Fallout 4, Todd showcased a real life Pip-boy 3000 that would be available with the collectors addition. Well surely this is a prop and will not have an actual electronic display the naïve audience collectively thought. Wrong you are peasants answered the divine one! Todd reviled that along with the Pip-boy came an app that acted as a second screen for your Fallout 4 experience. However, Todd was not shy to express his feeling s on how distracting he finds the second screen experience before quickly ensuring us all, “As far as stupid gimmicks go this is the best fucking one.” The man strikes again, dropping a hard F-bomb right there in the center of the E3 stage simply because he is Godd Howard and knows no mortal man can stop him.
“Glows In The Fucking Dark”
There is no stopping this man. Another E3, another Fallout special edition. This time around Fallout 76 was announced to include a functional power armor helmet for special edition packages, but only that, as Todd so eloquently put it, the special edition would also include an in game map that, “Glows in the fucking dark.” Todd, this is why we love ya. The power of Godd Howard knows no social filters and it has since become the stuff of meme expectation for Todd to get so excited during a game announcement that he must drop the F-bomb.
“There Are Very Few Things as Good as Fallout”
Jumping back over to E3 and the presentation of Fallout 4, what better way to introduce your newest addition to the franchise than with a firm pat on your own back. While it’s amazing to hear him mutter in shaken confidence, we cannot exactly disagree with the man. Upon taking the stage an recounting how far video games have come in society, Todd take a deep breath before stumbling trough one of the greatest lines in E3 history. “There are very few things as good as Fallout”. The crowd, dressed to the nines in vault 101 jump suits, erupt along with all the viewers at home. A bold claim? Absolutely, Is he wrong though is the real question. The series will always have bugs, flaws, and skeptics but regardless of individual titles and opinions when it comes down to it, as a game, as a series, a story, and a community, when it comes to entertainment, There are very few things as good, as fallout.
“Sometimes It Doesn’t Just Work”
Oh Todd, there has never been such a strong love hate relationship as the one between the fallout community towards your leadership. Upon revealing the completely online and first ever multiplayer Fallout, Fallout 76, fans of the series were immediately divided between excitement and fear of what this may bring. While the ability to finally explore the waste with friends was on the table, so was the lingering reputation of Bethesda’s engine development. Fortunately enough for us Father Howard shared these mixed emotions as well as he introduced the Fallout 76 Beta dubbed, the Break-it Early Test Application. Now why would a man with the confidence of a god seem unsure about the quality of his engine? To quoke the man directly, he had read on the internet that, “Sometimes, It doesn’t just work”. We love you Todd. The Godd has become self-aware.
In all seriousness I am a die hard Fallout fan through and through, while people may disagree about certain entries in the series or have issues with overall bugs in gameplay, we cannot forget how much time and effort has gone into this project and how much of an impact it has had on our lives. For that we do have to give credit where credit is due to Todd Howard and all the devs from Bethesda. I encourage everyone to go and rewatch both the Fallout 4 and 76 E3 presentations as even though they may not have turned out exactly as you wanted, going back and watching them still gives you that old magic feeling of a new Fallout title.
