If at first you don`t succeed, try again, but 960 attempts boggles the mind. This woman is the poster girl for perseverance, she deserves our respect and admiration.

I`ve tried a gazillion times to learn how to dance, maybe I should try one more time?

Aren`t we all happy that there`s a 69-year-old Asian driver on the road? No jokes about elderly or Asian drivers, please!
