“19 things it took me 50 years to learn”
By Dave Barry


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



***

2. The most powerful force in the universe is gossip.

***

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

***

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. 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.”

***

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



***

8. There is a very fine line between “hobby” and “mental illness.”

***

9. 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.

***

10. Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance.



***

11. Never lick a steak knife.

***

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

***

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. You should not confuse your career with your life.



***

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

***

17. 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.

***

18. A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person.



***

19. Your friends love you anyway.
