Nineteen things that took me almost 50 years to learn
  =====================================================

By Dave Barry

1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative
on the same night.

2. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race
has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word
would be meetings.

3. There is a very fine line between hobby and mental illness.

4. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never
want you to share yours with them.

5. And when God, who created the entire universe with all of its
glories, decides to deliver a message to humanity, He WILL NOT use,
as His messenger, a person on cable TV with a bad hairstyle.

6. You should not confuse your career with your life.

7. No matter what happens, somebody will find a way to take it too
seriously.

8. When trouble arises and things look bad, there is always one
individual
who perceives a solution and is willing to take command. Very often,
that individual is crazy.

9. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

10. Never lick a steak knife.

11. Take out the fortune before you eat the cookie.

12. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.

13. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling
reason why we observe daylight savings time.

14. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely
suggests
that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby
emerging
from her at that moment.

15. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to
make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven.

16. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age,
gender,
religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down
inside,
we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.

17. The main accomplishment of almost all organized protests is to
annoy
people who are not in them.

18. A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice
person. (This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.)

19. Your friends love you anyway.

Thought for the day: Never be afraid to try something new. Remember
that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built
the Titanic.
