         From: KMACINTY on 12/17/2001
      and From: darrell94590 on 5/12/2006

 If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
 If you can resist complaining and boring people with your
 If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it,
 If you can understand when loved ones are too busy to give
    you time,
 If you can overlook people taking things out on you when,
    through no fault of yours, something goes wrong,
 If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

 If you can resist treating a rich friend better than
    a poor friend,
 If you can face the world without lies and deceit,

 If you can always sleep without the aid of drugs,


 You are probably the family dog.
Subj:     Truisms (S230)
          From: JBCARY1 on 6/20/2001

  1. What's the definition of a teenager? God's punishment
     for; enjoying sex.

  2. Define Transvestite: A guy who likes to eat, drink and
     be Mary!

  3. What's the difference between the Pope and your boss?
     The Pope only expects you to kiss his ring.

  4. My mind works like lightning.  One brilliant flash and
     it is gone.

  5. The only time the world beats a path to your door is
     if you're in the bathroom.

  6. I hate sex in the movies. Tried it once and the
     seat folded up.

  7. It used to be only death and taxes were inevitable.
     Now, of course, there's shipping and handling, too.

  8. A husband is someone who takes out the trash and gives
     the impression he just cleaned the whole house.

  9. My next house will have no kitchen -- just vending

 10. The only thing wrong with a perfect drive to work is
     that you end up at work.

 11. Americans are getting stronger.  Twenty years ago,
     it took two people to carry ten dollars' worth of
     groceries. Today, a five-year-old can do it.

 12. Blondie told her friend, "I was worried that my
     mechanic might try to rip me off, so I was relieved
     when he told me all I needed was "blinker fluid."

 13. Why is a government worker like a shotgun with a
     broken firing pin? It won't work and you can't fire it.

 14. I'm so depressed...I went to the doctor today and he
     refused to write me a prescription for Viagra.  Said
     it would be like putting a new flagpole on a condemned

Subj:     Money (S195)
          From: gheckman on 10/27/2000

 It can buy you a House
 But not a Home

 It can buy you a Bed
 But not Sleep

 It  can buy you a Clock
 But not  Time

 It can buy you a  Book
 But not Knowledge

 It can buy you a  Position
 But not Respect

 It can buy you Medicine
 But not Health

 It can buy you Blood
 But not Life

 It  can buy you Sex
 But not Love

 So you see, money isn't everything.
 The best things in life can't be bought,
 and often we destroy ourselves  trying!
 I tell you all this because I am your Friend,
 and as your Friend I want to take away your
 needless pain and suffering...

 So send me all your money, and I will suffer for you.
 A truer Friend than me you will never find. :-)


 P. S. Send this to 10 other people.  I'd like to be
 their friends as well...

Subj:     We'd Like To See On Office Posters (S187)
          From: JCary on 08/25/2000

  1. Rome did not create a great empire by having meetings,
     they did it by killing all those who opposed them.

  2. If you can stay calm, while all around you is chaos...
     then you probably haven't completely understood the
     seriousness of the situation.

  3. Doing a job RIGHT the first time gets the job done.
     Doing the job WRONG fourteen times gives you job security.

  4. Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet

  5. Artificial Intelligence is no match for Natural

  6. A person who smiles in the face of adversity... probably
     has a scapegoat.

  7. Plagiarism saves time.

  8. If at first you don't succeed, try management.

  9. Never put off until tomorrow what you can avoid

 10. TEAMWORK... means never having to take all the blame

Subj:     Exercise Tips (S180)
          From: gheckman on 7/11/00

 It is well documented that for every mile that you jog....you
 add one minute to your life.  This enables you at 85 years
 old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at $5000
 per month

 1 - My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she
 was 60.  She's 97 now and we don't know where the hell she is.

 2- The only reason I would take up jogging is so that I could
 hear heavy breathing again.

 3- I joined a health club last year, spent about 400 bucks.
 Haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to show up.

 4- I have to exercise early in the morning before my brain
 figures out what I'm doing.

 5- I don't exercise at all.  If God meant us to touch our
 toes, he would have  put them further up our body.

 6- I like long walks, especially when they are taken by
 people who annoy me.

 7- I have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers

 8 - The advantage of exercising every day is that you die

 9- If you are going to try cross-county skiing, start with
 a small country.

 and last but not least ........

 10- I don't jog, it makes the ice jump right out of my
 vodka tonic.

Subj:     Philosophy Of Life (S148)
          From: JOKE-OF-THE-DAY.com on 11/29/1999

 Life is an endless struggle, full of frustrations and
 challenges, but eventually you find a hair stylist you

 The real art of conversation is not only to say the right
 thing in theright place, but also to leave unsaid the wrong
 thing at the tempting moment.

 Time may be a great healer but it's also a lousy beautician.

 Brain cells come and go but fat cells live forever.

 Life not only begins at forty, it begins to show.

 You don't stop laughing because you grow old; you grow old
 because you stop laughing.

 It is bad to suppress laughter; it goes back down and spreads
 to your hips.

 Age is important only if you're cheese and wine.

 The only time a woman wishes that she were a year older is
 when she is expecting a baby.

 Inside some of us is a thin person struggling to get out, but
 he/she can usually be sedated with a few pieces of chocolate

Subj:     Thoughts for the Day (S147)
          From: RFSlick on 11/21/1999

   A friend sent this to me:

   1) Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in
      his shoes.  That way, when you criticize him, you're a
      mile away from him and you have his shoes.

   2) A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is
      where a train stops. On my desk I have a work station

   3) I believe five out of four people have trouble with

   4) If quitters never win, and winners never quit, what fool
      came up with, "Quit while you're ahead?"

   5) Do Lipton Tea employees take coffee breaks?

   6) What hair color do they put on the driver's licenses
      of bald men?

   7) I was thinking that women should put pictures of missing
      husbands on beer cans.

   8) My grandmother told me that at her age, going braless
      pulls all the wrinkles out of her face.

   9) I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible
      a whole lot more as they get older.  Then it dawned on
      me - they were cramming for their finals.

  10) Employment applications always ask who is to be notified
      in case of emergency. I write "A very good doctor."

Subj:     Guidelines For Enlightenment (S140)
          by Swami Beyondananda
          From: smiles on 09/16/1999

  1. Be a Fundamentalist--make sure the Fun always comes before
     the mental. Realize that life is a situation comedy that
     will never be canceled. A laugh track has been provided,
     and the reason why we are put in the material world is to
     get more material.  Have a good laughsitive twice a day,
     and that will ensure regularhilarity.

  2. Remember that each of us has been given a special gift,
     just for entering - so you are already a winner!

  3. The most powerful tool on the planet today is Tell-A-
     Vision.  That is where I tell a vision to you, and you
     tell a vision to me.  That way, if we don't like the
     programming we're getting, we can simply change the

  4. Life is like photography. You use the negative to develop.

  5. It is true. As we go through life thinking heavy thoughts,
     thought particles tend to get caught between the ears,
     causing a condition called truth decay. So be sure to use
     mental floss twice a day.  And when you're tempted to
     practice tantrum yoga, remember what we teach in Swami's
     Absurdiveness Training class: *Don't get even, get odd.*

  6. If we want world peace, we must let go of our attachments
     and truly live like nomads.  That's where I no mad at you,
     you no mad at me. That way, there'll surely be nomadness
     on the planet.  And peace begins with each of us.  A
     little peace here, a little peace there, pretty soon all
     the peaces will fit together to make one big peace

  7. I know great earth changes have been predicted for the
     future, so if you're looking to avoid earthquakes, my
     advice is simple.  When you find a fault, just don't
     dwell on it.

  8. There's no need to change the world. All we have to do
     is toilet train the world, and we'll never have to
     change it again.

  9. If you're looking to find the key to the Universe, I
     have some bad news and some good news.  The bad news
     is: there is no key to the Universe.  The good news
     is: it has been left unlocked.

 10. Finally, everything I have told you is channeled.  That
     way, if you don't like it, it's not my fault.  And
     remember, enlightenment is not a bureaucracy.  So we
     don't have to go through channels.

     --- by Swami Beyondananda

Subj:     Contest of Theories (S134)
          From: gsm on 8/22/99

 A contest was held for people to submit their theories on ANY
 subject.  Below are the winners:

 4th RUNNER-UP (Subject: Probability Theory): If an infinite
 number of rednecks riding in an infinite number of pickup trucks
 fire an infinite number of shotgun rounds at an infinite number
 of highway signs, they will eventually produce all the world's
 great literary works in Braille.

 3rd RUNNER-UP (Subject: Bio-Mechanics): Why Yawning Is Contagious:
 You yawn to equalize the pressure on your eardrums.  This pressure
 change outside your eardrums unbalances other people's ear pressures,
 so they then yawn to even it out.

 2nd RUNNER-UP (Subject: Symbolic Logic): Communist China is
 technologically underdeveloped because they have no alphabet and
 therefore cannot use acronyms to communicate technical ideas at a
 faster rate.

 1st RUNNER-UP (Subject: Newtonian Mechanics): The earth may spin
 faster on its axis due to deforestation. Just as a figure skater's
 rate of spin increases when the arms are brought in close to the
 body, the cutting of tall trees may cause our planet to spin
 dangerously fast.

 HONORABLE MENTION (Subject: Linguistics): The quantity of consonants
 in the English language is constant. If omitted in one place, they
 turn up in another. When a Bostonian "pahks his cah," the lost R's
 migrate southwest, causing a Texan to warsh" his car and invest in
 "erl" wells.

 GRAND PRIZE WINNER (Subject: Perpetual Motion): When a cat is dropped,
 it always lands on its feet, and when toast is dropped, it always
 lands buttered side down. It was proposed to strap giant slabs of hot
 buttered toast to the back of a hundred tethered cats; the two
 opposing forces will cause the cats to hover, spinning inches above
 the ground. Using the giant buttered toast-cat array, a high-speed
 monorail could easily link New York with Chicago.

Subj:     Words To Live By - Humorous (S72)
          From: RFSlick on 98-06-17

 (See 'Words To Live By' in THOUGHTS-LEARNED1)

 I can please only one person per day.  Today is not
 your day.  Tomorrow isn't looking good either.

 I don't have an attitude problem. You have a
 perception problem.

 I love deadlines.  I especially like the whooshing
 sound they make when they go flying by.

 Two wrongs don't make a right, but three rights
 make a left.

 If swimming is so good for your figure, how do you
 explain whales?

 Am I getting smart with you?  How would you know?

 I'm not just a gardener, I'm a Plant Manager.

 My reality check bounced.

 On the keyboard of life, always keep one finger
 on the escape key.

 I have not yet begun to procrastinate.

 SLOW IS:  A herd of turtles stampeding through
 chunky peanut butter.

 I don't suffer from stress.  I'm a carrier.

 I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

 There are two rules for ultimate success in life:
      1. Never tell everything you know.

 I'd explain it to you, but your brain would explode.

 Tell me what you need, and I'll tell you how to
 get along without it.

 Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get
 sucked into jet engines.

From: humorlist-digest V2 #31 on 98-02-01
 If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence
 that you tried.

 A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.

 Experience is something you don't get until
 just after you need it.

 For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism.

 He who hesitates is probably right.

 No one is listening until you make a mistake.

 Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

 The colder the X-ray table, the more of your body is
 required on it.

 The hardness of the butter is proportional to the
 softness of the bread.

 The severity of the itch is proportional to the reach.

 To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism;
      to steal from many is research.

 Two wrongs are only the beginning.

 You never really learn to swear until you learn to drive.

 Monday is an awful way to spend 1/7th of your life.

 The sooner you fall behind, the more time you'll have to
 catch up.

 Change is inevitable....except from vending machines.

 Don't sweat petty things....or pet sweaty things.

 Plan to be spontaneous tomorrow.

 If you think nobody cares about you, try missing
 a couple of payments.

 I'd kill for a Nobel Peace Prize.

 Everybody repeat after me....."We are all individuals."

 Death to all fanatics!

 Love may be blind, but marriage is a real eye-opener.

 Bills travel through the mail at twice the speed of cheques.

 Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness pays off now.

 Borrow money from pessimists-they don't expect it back.

 Half the people you know are below average.

 99 percent of lawyers give the rest a bad name.

 42.7 percent of all statistics are made up on the spot.

 If at first you don't succeed, then
 skydiving definitely isn't for you.

 also called 'Now and Zen' and 'Daily moment of zen:'

    1. Do not walk behind me,

   35. Keep your nose to the grindstone and your shoulder to
       the wheel...it's cheaper than plastic surgery.

   36. This land is your land.  This land is my land.  So
       stay on your land.

   37.  Love is like a roller coaster: when it's good you
        don't want to get off, and when it isn't...
        you can't wait to throw up.

Subj:     "Deep Thoughts" by Jack Handey (S224)
          From: ICohen on 5/15/2001

 From "DeepThoughts" by Jack Handey, from Saturday Night Live.

 Before criticizing someone, walk a mile in their shoes.  Then
 when you do criticize them, you will be a mile away and have
 their shoes.
 If you ever drop your keys into a river of molten lava, let
 'em go, because, man, they're gone.
 If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting
 them down?  We might, if they screamed all the time, for no
 good reason.
 To me, it's a good idea to always carry two sacks of something
 when you walk around.  That way, if anybody says, "Hey, can
 you give me a hand?"  You can say, "Sorry, got these sacks."
 The face of a child can say it all, especially the mouth part
 of the face.
 I believe in making the world safe for our children, but not
 our children's children, because I don't think children should
 be having sex.
 If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to
 tell him is, "God is crying."  And if he asks why God is crying,
 another cute thing to tell him is, "Probably because of
 something you did."
 If you ever catch on fire, try to avoid seeing yourself in the
 mirror,because I bet that's what REALLY throws you into a panic.
 Whenever I see an old lady slip and fall on a wet sidewalk, my
 first instinct is to laugh. But then I think, what if I was an
 ant and she fell on me.  Then it wouldn't seem quite so funny.
 To me, boxing is like a ballet, except there's no music, no
 choreography and the dancers hit each other.
 I hope if dogs ever take over the world and they choose a king,
 they don't just go by size, because I bet there are some
 Chihuahuas with some good ideas.
 If you go flying back through time and you see somebody else
 flying forward into the future, it's probably best to avoid
 eye contact.
 It's easy to sit there and say you'd like to have more money.
 And I guess that's what I like about it.  It's easy. Just
 sitting there, rocking back and forth, wanting that money.
 If you ever reach total enlightenment while you're drinking
 a beer, I bet it makes beer shoot out your nose.

Subj:     Feeling Stressed? (S78, S528c)
          From: Bawdy.Net Collage #261 on 98-07-25

 Picture yourself near a stream...

 Birds are softly chirping in the crisp, cool mountain air...

 Nothing can bother you here...

 No one knows this secret place...

 You are in total seclusion from that place called The World...

 The soothing sound of a gentle waterfall fills the air with
 a cascade of serenity...

 The water is clear...

 You can easily make out the face of the person whose head
 you're holding under the water...

 There now... feeling better?
