* There is no way to get rich quickly.
* When you get your paycheck, pay yourself first.
* Your finger will NOT stop the door from closing.
* If you haven't taken a dump in a few days, that fart that you feel coming is probably not a fart.

Tampering with open wires shocks the crap out of you.
Always, ALWAYS!, check the stove before leaving the flat.

* mixing 151 proof Bacardi rum with Vodka is probably not a good idea.
yes a 10 pump air rifle fully pumped will travel through your shoe leather and imbed in your big toe.

Never expect something to get done without doing it yourself. You can't rely on anyone but yourself, hope but don't rely. Gambling is paying to play and if you get money back it's a fluke.

Don't sucumb to peer pressure and jump off a 10 foot wall onto a sloped bank the week before the basketball sectional semifinals. On the plus side, having a broken foot got me hooked up with this chick I'd been yearning for all year long.......never ever understimate (or underplay) the pity card ;)
As an aside, to this day, I've wrestled with that conundrum: as a competitor, is it better to play in a big game, and likely not have an opportunity to get the girl, or, get hurt, not play in the big game (and have your team consequently lose), but get the girl? Eh, in the long run, I would've gotten her, the injury just sped it up, so I guess I know the answer myself....sigh.

I learned that apparently you can walk around downtown all day with a rip in the seat of your pants and absolutely nobody will tell you (today) :facepalm:

My anatomy teacher actually said something very similar to this last week, in all seriousness, too.
