    16 Things that took 50 years to learn...

    Sixteen Things That it Took Me 50 Years to Learn by Dave Barry

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

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

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

    4. 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.

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

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

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

    8. 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."

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

    10. If there really is a God who created the entire universe with all of its glories, and He decides to deliver a message to humanity, He WILL NOT use, as His messenger, a person on cable TV with a bad hairstyle.

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

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

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

    14. 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.

    15. Your friends love you, anyway.

    16. What was I talking about?

    Happy Birthday, Rick

    And now you get to take a couple doses of Fleet Phoso-Soda, diet and irrigate, get a real good buzz on, take a real good close look inside yourself(if you are up to it), and take a day off. What more could we ask for with the Passages?

  • Happy Birthday Rick...

    Have you ordered your colonoscopy yet? Like to see you hang around for another 50.

    I'm ordering mine for my birthday!

    Gotta get'er done...

    I just hit the big 4-0 a few weeks ago and was pretty bummed about it, but hearing you guys talk about how happy you all are makes me happier as well.

    Happy Birthday Rick

    WHen you do go for the Colonoscopy,...Start lauching when the doctor is performing the test. He will ask you why you are laughing, Reply "I cant help it Doc, YOUR TICKLING MY BRAIN!!!!! ;-)

    Hope someone got a chuckle out of that.....

    smartass doctors

    The last thing I heard before my colonoscopy was the doctor saying, "Let's get this show on the road".

    When those polyps start getting to the size of a grape, you'll then know why he's PO'd. Think of it as "Hydronic Preventative Maintenance". Would you let a big air bubble linger in a circuit. It causes other problems, doesn't it?

    I had the exact same attitude for 8 years. Then, one day I noticed BLOOD! Scared the be-jesus out me. All is o.k., but, I got MOTIVATED.

    No big "thang". You'll sleep through the easy part.

    Just my .02

    Many happy returns Rick. I will be 54 this year. I already had the colonoscopy. My wife has Chrons disease, she has the BEST Dr. When he gives you the scope, you NEVER remember. He and I were talking when he was getting stuff ready, he reached over and put something in my IV and the next thing I remember was it was 30 minutes later!

    Anyway OT, have a great day and welcome to the club.!

    seems i have some minor dissagreement with the \"approach\"

    i was more in favor perhaps say of eating a super delux hamburger with fries and a large milk shake and hammering down a pill with a camera in it the first time i came up for "air" while mauwing down burger and wash it all down with a nice double chug of chocolate milk shake:) hey ! i will give the camera back in the morning :)
