40 things everyone should know

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

2. Don't worry about what people think. They don't do it very often.

3. Going to church doesn't make you any more a Christian than standing
in a garage makes you a car.

4. Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

5. If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you never tried

6. My idea of housework is to sweep the room with a glance.

7. Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is

8. It is easier to get forgiveness than permission.

9. For every action, there is an equal and opposite government

10. If you look like your passport picture, you probably need the

11. Bills travel through the mail at twice the speed of checks.

12. A conscience is what hurts when all of your other parts feel so

13. Eat well, stay fit, die anyway

14. Men are from earth. Women are from earth. Deal with it.

15. No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes.

16. A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand.

17. Middle age is when the broadness of mind and the narrowness of
waist change places.

18. Opportunities always look bigger going than coming.

19. Junk is something you've kept for years and throw away three
weeks before you need it.

20. There is always one more imbecile than you counted on.

21. Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a
mistake when you make it again.

22. By the time you make ends meet, they move the ends.

23. Thou shalt not weigh more than thy refrigerator.

24. Someone who thinks logically provides a nice contrast to the
real world.

25. It ain't the jeans that make your butt look fat.

26. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human
race had not achieved--and will never achieve--it's full potential,
that word would be 'meetings'.

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

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

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

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

31. Never lick a steak knife.

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

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

34. 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.

35. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to
make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age 11.

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

37. A person that is nice to you, but rude to the waitress, is not a
nice person. (This is important. Pay attention. It never fails.)

38. Your friends love you anyway.

39. Thought for the day: Never be afraid to try something new.

40. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of
professionals built the Titanic.

There is nothing wrong with the spelling that I can see, so there is nothing to discuss there.

There are 40 things to discuss and I am not going to discuss all of them in one post. That would just be insane.

One of my favorites though, is number 27. That is just so true, and sometimes associated with roleplayers.

Other than that, there are many good points there. As for discussion, there really isn't much to add I think.

I agree with the whole not being a Christian thing just because you go to church every Sunday. But I don't agree that being a Christian, real or not, has anything to do with your lifestyle.

Christianity, much like Buddhism and Muslim and all that, is just religion. Pure and simple. It is not something that needs to be seen judging on one's lifestyle or behavior. It is just an aspect of your believe and state of mind. So going to a church every Sunday does not make you a Christian, but does not going to Church at all make you an atheist or a man without Christian belief? I don't think so.

Being an Athiest myself, I feel compelled to comment on DA's statement "I believe that if someone is a true Christian, then they wouldn't have to proclaim it. People would be able to just look at them/observe them for a few moments and just know it."

This statement sums up what most people assume about "non-believers" It implies that you can only do acts of kindness or be moral if you are associated with some sort of religion or Deity. I am a moral person but my morality doesn't come from believing in a deity, it comes from a simple philosophy, treat people with love, and kindness and in return you will recieve love and kindness.

btw...I LOVE # 10 I DO need the trip!

Interestingly, almost all of the most horrific acts ever committed by humanity were done in the name of religion. Going to chutch means pretty much nothing.

Also, acting like a good person in no way indicates a religious or spiritual nature. Remember, the largest single charitable donation ever was made by an atheist...

Mostly, though, the ark wasn't built by an amateur. It wasn't built. It's a story. Like talking snakes, and a 6,000 year old world. Literalism goes hand in hand with the first point above.

It is a list of 40 useless sayings. Deal with it people.

Heck, we could start a new posting game based on this.

41. Never pet a porcupine without safety gloves.

42. Never assume your boyfriend knows what is wrong with you. If you want him to know, you better tell him.

(Seriously, I sometimes get really tired of this)

Hey All...

Just moved this over to the surveys section. Not sure if this is the best place for it... it's kind of blurring the lines of what to call this. Survey? Posting Game? Other? Tough call.

Regardless... interesting discussion.

If you would pay more attention to me, Grugg, you would know what the problem was!

I don't think you understood my joke Grugg, which pretty much ruins the whole point of it.

44.(?) If no one gets the joke, it won't be any funnier if you try to explain it.
