    When life opens to you into different roads instead of a single one you probably will have grey hairs.

    Don't live with your boss. Ever. You WILL get on each other's nerves, and angering them not only puts your job in jeopardy, but could leave you without a place to stay as well.

    Boredom is underrated.
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    1. "This above all - to thine own self be true, then it must follow as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man" Shakespeare

    2. The Serenity Prayer should be a creed to live by for every man/woman:
    "G*d grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference"

    3. hatred will have most effect on the person doing the hating - hate was a word I banned in my home from the time my children were toddlers.

    4. "The moving finger writes, and having writ moves on, nor all thy piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel half a line, nor all thy tears wash out a word of it" from the English translation by Edward FitzGerald (1809-1883) of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

    ...in other words, particularly in this day of throw away online communication, consider carefully before writing anything about another, or that could affect another. Once written, its publication may affect others and/or yourself in ways you cannot imagine!! Written words have consequences, intended or unintended.

    WOW! Really good stuff!

    In public agencies, even e-mails are public records in many states, so on everyone's first day of employment they are told: "Don't write anything in an e-mail that you wouldn't want taped to the door of your office."

    one last before bed:

    "They came first for the Communists,
    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists,
    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews,
    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.

    Then they came for me
    and by that time no one was left to speak up."

    Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) ...although the order of the groups in this speech have been argued for many a year,the general gist of this famous quote by Pastor Niemöller is an excellent example of Karma.

    I reckon that's a good policy, I dont send my private e-mails and if I send one at work its generally similarly worded to a letter and I dont send them casually either.

    Online I use an ID on most forums and I'm careful on Facebook too.

    One of the most surprising things I've experienced since using the internet has been the amount of strange behaviour which is common place, stalking or obsessive behaviour is pretty commonplace.

    Not even the deranged psycho variety that makes the news, I've experienced or suspected frequent migrations between forums and anywhere you can comment, connect or communicate with people online of individuals which I've made it pretty plain to, in very direct manners that I want nothing to do with. I find it strange because the same people must not have a lot of things to do besides follow strangers online like they where football teams or celebrates. Its really strange because while these individuals are, to all intents and purposes, a kind of "fan" they are only interested in generating misery or hurt.

    I like to think its unrepresentative of the population at large, although I've never decided if people are greater idiots in person or online.
