humor is a good survival tool-part 2

Recommended Posts

No problem at all. You guys are right - humor is not just a tool for survival, it is a requirement!
its a requirement for life capt i think. if you cant laugh at yourself you will never really be sucessful at laughing at others or with others, which ever the case may be.

Yep, I learned two things - if you laugh at yourself when you do something dumb (falling out of a tree and shattering my left heel, for example) then no one can laugh at you, they can only laugh with you. BIG difference.

 

The other is - if you can stand there and say, 'Man - I screwed up, my fault' you'll drive most folks nuts because the blame game just ended. Around here (NASA = Government remember), simply saying, 'my fault, sorry' scares the 'organic mulch' out of people. NOBODY in government wants responsibility so somebody who will take it intimidates the heck out of them. That is why there are so many 'investigative committees' - not to find out who's to blame but to prove it wasn't anybody's fault!

You need a kindle - carries the book, no weight change for number of books - and internet when available. what's not to like.

Got one for the son for Christmas; will be checking it out. I like hard copies as well since I usually have 2-4 open and comparing notes.

Enjoy it. My wife got one for her-self, now we share books. Of course her Kindle is on My Amazon account so guess WHO gets the bill? Don't mind at all but it is amazing how fast $.99 books can equal a couple of hundred dollars.

 

Still I like to be able to carry 30 books with me and bounce back and forth to what ever strikes my fancy.

Yeah, I can imagine the cost run up.... thinking of my 1000+ volume library. I keep my Buckskinner series, several gardening books, and my Bowyer series with me, along with a couple misc books. Keeps me occupied on down time, which keeps me out of trouble. You remember the saying, "a bored soldier is in trouble"?...lol.

sigh* my alarm clock is on top of a book case on the other side of the room and yet I can turn the thing off in my sleep. Straight past the snooze button and back into bed. Then again I also have gone for quarter mile hikes barefoot threw the woods before only to wake up wondering where the hell I was. Hilarious list

Capt. makes a great point about accountability, not just gov. tho, I find that a lot of people have trouble ever admitting their wrong about anything no matter how insignificant. I'm not talking about my girlfriend at all. *side note Ratings for threads? "lets keep it rated PG" might not be a bad idea considering the vulgar savages (me,myself,and I) that frequent this site.

Here is a one.

My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school reunion, and she kept staring at a drunken man

swigging his drink as he sat alone at a nearby table. I asked her, "Do you know him?"

"Yes", she sighed, "He's my old boyfriend.

I understand he took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear he hasn't been sober since.

" "My God!" I said, "Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?"

And then the fight started...

A man comes home and grabs the remote right out of his wifes hands. "Quick get]me a beer before it starts" he demands. She gets him a beer which he downs in one gulp. "Quick get]me a beer before it starts" he demands. She gets him the second beer which he gulps down. "Quick get]me a beer before it starts" he demands again. As he sits dwon in his recliner the wife gives him his third beer and she says "look here damn it" to which he interupts and says,"here it starts".

OK, my turn:

 

If you run around a tree at 185,999 miles per second there is a distinct possibility that you may f@#$ yourself. On the other hand, if you vote for Obama you will most certainly guarantee that action
