Life . . . (received from a friend)



    Nine Important Facts To Remember As We Grow Older:
    #9  Death is the number 1 killer in the world.
    #8  Life is sexually transmitted.
    #7  Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.
    #6  Men have 2 motivations: hunger and hanky-panky, and they can't tell them apart. If you see a gleam in his eyes, make him a sandwich.
    #5  Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day.  Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.
    #4  Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospital, dying of nothing.
    #3  All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.
    #2  In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird, and people take Prozac to make it normal.
    #1  Life is like a jar of jalapeno peppers.  What you do today might burn your behind tomorrow.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What generates one's interest is very individually subjective.

I think you have a great list here.

The one that stands out the most to me is #7.  

FYI, i'm not a health nut, just average when it comes to trying to be healthy.
This would have been better on Philosophy /Religion section.
But if want may opinion (James 4):
Boasting About Tomorrow

Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil. If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.
i always say"i'm the best - Why?  because i say so"
that solves most - if not all questions

I think #4 in the cleverest.
#10 The only good thing about being dead is that you don't know that you are dead!
Paul SauvéRetiredCommented:
@Eirman - apparently, it's the same thing if you are a jerk ― everyone else knows but the jerk!
tough call, but probably #'s 9 and 8

I'm thinking #5 & #1, but that's just what coral told me to say.
I did not.   I said #6 and #2.
#2. And #4. and #6
this looks more like a math lesson..
when do we start multiplying?
Multiplying started with #8 nobus.

I find #1 interesting because it's truly a wise life lesson.
