Rules to live by, in no specific order:
#1 ) Be good to the people who are good to you, and to the people who aren’t. It always feels nice to be good to people, even if some of them suck, and you never know when you’ll need help.
#2) Sleep and eat as you see fit. Diets are for lunatics, and losing sleep is always wrong.
#3) Speak softly and carry a big stick when it is right to do so. Speak loudly every once in a while, just to remind the world that you can, and swing that stick once in awhile. Carrying it isn’t enough in this world.
#4) If you love someone, let them know, tell them. They aren’t psychic, and it feels good to hear it once in a while, and it feels good to say it as well.
#5) There is no us and them, there is only us. Leave “them” out of it, “they” don’t exist, there is only us.
#6) Ignore the clock, unless you’re on the clock.
#7) Sweat every day. Rest every day. Smile every day. In that order.
#8 ) Anger is a gift, use it. If you don’t, you’ll never know if it was right to feel it in the first place
#9) It’s OK to be a little selfish. A little, not a lot.
#10) Learn every day. If you don’t, the day wasn’t worth it.
#11) The more we look at the world and the people in it, the less we like the place. Take a break from the world, you may fall in love with the place again.
#12) Question everything you hear.
#13) Play games, but not every day. Be serious, but not all the time.
#14) Talk about politics with people you know everyday. Note I said with, not at. There is a difference.
#15) Place one weapon where you can find it in the dark.
#16) Opinion is not expertise, but it sounds like it sometimes. Listen, but with a grain of salt.
#17) If it tastes good, eat it. If it kills you, chances are you were dead meat anyway.
#18 ) Sports only matters peripherally. Politics is much more important, but it’s harder to root for an economic theory, hence the popularity of sports. Watch a lot of politics, but keep an eye on the score of the game (Politicians could learn from this.)
#19) Love your country like an adult. Criticize it when it warrants, help it when it needs help, and hate the things that drive you nuts about it. “
Love it or leave it is an idiotic mentality.
#20) Don’t be a dick.
That’s it from here, America. G’night.
