 Rulez for Girls to live by...


If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.


Learn to work the toilet seat. If it's up, put it down.


Don't cut your hair. Ever: Long hair is always more attractive than short hair. One of the big reasons guys fear getting married is that married women always cut their hair, and by then you're stuck with her.


If it itches, it will be scratched.

According to an article on CNN, this is the funniest joke in the world:

Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy takes out his phone and calls the emergency services.

He gasps: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator says: "Calm down, I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a gunshot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says: "OK, now what?"

These are two very "inside" jokes:

Rene Descartes was working at home on a new discourse.  His kids were playing, banging on pots and pans. Rene shouted at them, "KIDS! Stop that racket! I can't think!" and he disappeared.

Werner Heisenberg was stopped by a policeman for speeding. The cop took his drivers license and registration and asked him "Do you know how fast you were going?"   "No" said Heisenberg, "but I know where I am."

Excerpted form an article in USA TODAY:
In fact, the phenomenon of carrying on multiple individual conversations simultaneously, never possible before instant messaging, is so prevalent that scientists have given the talent a name: split attention. Read the entire article
Here is your Random Number: [ ] Use it wisely!

myrmidon • MER-muh-dahn • (noun)
: a loyal follower; especially : a subordinate who executes orders unquestioningly or unscrupulously

Example Sentence:
When DeVour, Inc. was accused of unsavory dealings, even company myrmidons like Bruce were held accountable.

Did you know?
The Myrmidons, legendary inhabitants of Thessaly in Greece, were known for their fierce devotion to their king, Achilles, who led them in the Trojan War. "Myrmex" means "ant" in Greek, an image that evokes small and insignificant workers mindlessly fulfilling their duty. Whether the original Myrmidons were given their name for that reason is open to question. The "ant" association is strong, however. Some say the name is from a legendary ancestor who once had the form of an ant; others say the Myrmidons were actually transformed from ants. In any case, since the 1600s, we've employed "myrmidon" in its not-always-complimentary, ant-evoking, figurative sense.

In parts of canada, the have flashing GREEN traffic signals. no canadian i have asked knows what this means. i found out it is the equivalent of a green left turn arrow. oncoming traffic sees a red light - you can turn left without having to stop and wait for oncoming traffic to clear.

In the Kingdom of ZENO, the "ponytail thru the opening in the back of a baseball cap" thing would be disallowed. Absolutely.

The kind of recognition error you refer to is called a mondegreen, a name coined by Sylvia Wright in 1954. In childhood, she misheard the last line of an old Scottish ballad called "The Bonny Earl of Murray," and thought it went: "They hae slain the Earl of Murray, And Lady
She was subsequently disappointed to learn the last line was actually: "And hae laid him on the green."

Some days it doesn't seem like there is any reason to being here. other days it all makes sense.

The most important thing a father can do for his household is... kill spiders. Ask matt.

i hate computers. no. i love computers.

what i need and what i want are rarely in the same place at the same time.

every day i wake up and i just decide to be happy. so i am. --curtis, the nephew

in the kingdom of ZENO, baseball hats could be be worn ONLY by actual baseball players while engaged in playing baseball. period.

i woke up one morning and decided i needed more sleep. so i went back to sleep.

Don't bring a knife, even a big one, to a gunfight.

Department of Redundancy Department

Means "prepare for war." From a Latin maxim--si vis pacem, para bellum--"If you want peace, prepare for war." The European designation of the Luger pistol and (today more commonly) the 9mm cartridge it chambered.

When people are free to do as they please, they usually imitate each other.
-- Eric Hoffer (1902-1983)

A skeleton walks into a bar and orders a beer and a mop.

From the moment your heart starts beating in the womb, until you die, you have a finite number of heartbeats for your life. Exercise just uses those heartbeats up faster.

The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

Elbert Hubbard (1859-1915)

As I let go of my feelings of guilt, I can get in touch with my Inner Sociopath.

oh, gee whiz.

I was laid off my job October 25, 2002. I have my life back. Sure, i will miss the paycheck. but not much else.  the place was a good place to work, except for a boss who could not control his temper, was duplicitous, hubristic, and whose every word was some form  of a sale.

Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him what?
A super callused fragile mystic plagued with halitosis.

Q I went round the world again. europe, india, thailand.
Q IThen i went to thailand for three weeks.
Q IThen i went to thailand again, and cambodia, and vietnam, and back to Thailand. I was in Ho Chi Min City when the Tsunami struck.

Next i'll emigrate to canada. or thailand. or india.

or not.

do you realize how much pinkie finger stress you can
save if you don't use capitol letters? obviously I do


One of these days, I will put some stuff in this space.
you can rent it if you want. In fact, please do.
Then I won't have to think about it.
