There are a lot of brave people around, committing unrelentingly extreme acts of bravery. Every. Single. Day.
This cartoon loosely categorises what I see to be the three levels of bravery.
As per my classification, I once executed an extreme act of bravery; the result of which happened to be a large pulsating insect splayed, centrally, on top of my pizza.
I may have saved myself 87 seconds in the sink, but I paid the price in surprise, additional and deeply undesired protein.
I learnt my lesson, never again to bypass moderate levels and to always wash, regardless of what Tesco tells you.
