CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS' JEWISH MOTHER: "I don't care what you've
discovered, you still should have written."

(la: Trancaneala Aristocrata "8")
Michael, If you were on a date, having dinner with a
nice young lady, how would you tell her that you have to go to the
rest room?" the teacher asked.

"Just a minute, I have to go pee", he said.

The teacher replied,"That would be rude and impolite.
What about you? Paul, how would you say it?

"I am sorry, but I really need to go to the
bathroom, I'll be right back."

The teacher responded,"That's better, but it's still
not very mannerly to say the word 'bathroom' at the table."

"And you Johnny, are you able to use your intelligence for once
and show us your good manners."

I would say: "Darling, may I please be excused for a
moment, I have to shake hands with a very dear friend of mine,
whom I
hope you'll get to meet after dinner."

The teacher fainted.

1. A kindergarten pupil told his teacher he'd found a cat, but it was dead. "How do you know that the cat was dead?" she asked her pupil.

"Because I pissed in its ear and it didn't move," answered the child innocently.

You did WHAT ? ! ?" the teacher exclaimed in surprise.

"You know,"explained the boy, "I leaned over and went 'Pssst!' and it didn't move."

2. A small boy is sent to bed by his father. Five minutes later...."Da-ad....."

"What?"

"I'm thirsty. Can you bring drink of water?"

"No, You had your chance. Lights out."

"WHAT?"

"I'm THIRSTY. Can I have a drink of water??"

I told you NO! If you ask again, I'll have to spank you!!"

Five minutes later......"Daaaa-aaaad. ...."

"WHAT!"

"And this is how your teacher taught you to do it?" the mother asked. "Yes," he answered. Infuriated, the mother asked the teacher the next day, "What are you teaching my son in math?"
The teacher replied, "Right now, we are learning addition." The mother asked, "And are you teaching them to say two plus two, that son of a bitch is four?" After the teacher stopped laughing, she answered, "What I taught them was, two plus two, THE SUM OF WHICH, is four."

(la: Parinti si copii)
Si o femeie care tinea un bebelus la pieptul ei spuse:
"Vorbeste-ne de Copii..."
Si el a zis:
"Copiii vostri nu sunt copiii vostri. Ei sunt fiii si fiicele nazuintei Vietii spre ea însasi. Ei vin prin voi, dar nu de la voi. Si desi ei sunt cu voi, ei nu va apartin.

Voi le puteti da dragostea voastra, dar nu gândurile voastre; pentru ca ei au propriile lor gânduri.
Puteti oferi o casa pentru corpurile lor, dar nu pentru suflete; caci sufletele lor locuiesc în casa lui Mâine, pe care voi n-o puteti vizita, nici macar în visele voastre.
Voi puteti sa va straduiti sa fiti ca ei, dar nu sa îi faceti pe ei aidoma voua; pentru ca viata nu merge înapoi, nici nu întarzie asupra lui ieri.
Voi sunteti arcurile din care copiii vostri, ca sageti vii, sunt trimisi înainte. Arcasul vede tzinta pe calea infinitului si El va îndoaie cu puterea Lui, ca sagetile Lui sa mearga iute si departe.
Fie ca îndoirea voastra in mâna Arcasului sa fie catre bucurie; caci asa cum El iubeste sageata care zboara, la fel iubeste El si arcul stabil."

OPINII DE VASILE ERNU - de DANG la: 22/01/2007 22:15:22
(la: DEMAGOGIE)
In anii de liceu, una dintre distractiile noastre era sa interpretam lozincile, imaginile si tot ce tinea de ideologia puterii. Limbajul de lemn al lozincilor afisate la tot pasul capata, in reformularea noastra, viata, fiind plin de umor, ironie si rautate. Nu cred ca o faceam atit pentru a ne revolta impotriva sistemului, cit pentru a ne reconstrui o lume in care sa ne simtim bine. Cu totii eram copiii perestroikai.
In anii care au urmat am observat ca discursului si retoricii comuniste i s-a opus un alt gen de discurs, discursul anticomunist. La inceput am crezut ca este vorba despre un discurs esential diferit. Fireste ca m-am inselat. Mult mai tirziu am inteles ca discursul anticomunist este un produs de import care se vinde foarte bine. Oricit de paradoxal ar suna, kremlinologia nu s-a nascut la Kremlin, ci la Casa Alba. Asa ca ori de cite ori veti citi un studiu din acest domeniu veti afla numai cum se vede Moscova de la Washington.
Dar sa trecem mai departe. In aceeasi perioada am mai observat ca vechile lozinci de tipul “Traiasca P.C.U.S.” au fost inlocuite de unele noi care aveau o forma standard: “Casa de schimb valutar”. (Acest lucru este mai putin vizibil intr-o tara precum România, unde trecerea de la comunism la capitalism are loc intr-o perioada foarte scurta de timp si in proportii masive. A fost nevoie de o singura noapte ca sa dispara lozincile si de o singura noapte ca intelectualitatea comunista sa devina anticomunista. Iar cind la primele cursuri din ’90 profesorii români isi incepeau orele cu discursuri disidente si anticomuniste imi aduceam aminte de tezele lui Lenin, care sustinea ca intelectualitatea este “tovaras de drum”, indiferent de ideologie zicem noi, si ca “intelectualitatea este un cacat”.) Aceste lozinci au inlocuit in citiva ani marea parte a lozincilor de care ne distram atit de copios in liceu. As fi crezut orice mi s-ar fi spus despre caderea comunismului, dar faptul ca acest simbol, $, care prin educatie ni se asocia intotdeauna cu moaca de tap a “Unchiului Sam” dusmanul nostru de moarte, va deveni simbolul noii ideologii, nu as fi crezut niciodata. In citiva ani “Unchiul Sam”, a devenit iubit si pretuit, reusind sa-l denigreze in asemenea hal pe scumpul nostru ILICI, cum n-au reusit toti mensevicii, trotkistii, anarhistii, stalinistii si imperialistii la un loc. Prin simpla sa prezenta, dolarul a redus la tacere toate simbolurile sistemului de care ne indepartam tot mai mult. El nu numai ca a inlocuit vechile simboluri, ci a devenit singura unitate de valoare si masura a lucrurilor. Si totusi, dolarul fiind un baiat bine crescut si cu frica de Dumnezeu, le-a mai dat vechilor valori o sansa: sa devina vandabile. Partidul nu a priceput ca nu el este cel care detine adevaratul monopol. Tinarul “utecist”, daca ar fi intrebat pe un tinar capitalist care a jucat “Monopoly”, ar fi primit un raspuns simplu care este trecut pe orice bancnota a jocului: IN GOD WE MONOPOLY.

“Nu vrem sa ne vedem inchisi in societatea deschisa a lui Popper” (Sergio Benvenuto)

Astazi putem spune cu mina la inima ca “societatea inchisa” a fost “deschisa” de cea mai tare arma a “societatii deschise”: Capitalul. Daca in momentul intrarii in comunism intelectualitatea româna a dovedit o capacitate de adaptare si si-a valorificat oportunitatile fara scrupule, contribuind in mod esential la dezvoltarea celui mai hilar sistem totalitar, la iesirea din acest sistem, aceiasi intelectuali au fost primii care au dat tonul noii orinduiri sociale, stringind onorurile. Daca veti spune ca au existat intelectuali care au “rezistat prin cultura”, va vom spune ca ei, dupa parerea noastra, au oferit una dintre cele mai perverse modele posibile. Daca o parte a intelectualitatii si-a oferit aptitudinile pentru a “fauri” si “proslavi” noul sistem, precum si pentru a primi anumite favoruri, gasca celor care au “rezistat prin cultura” a fost utilizata si s-a complacut in nuanta elitista, creind un fals mod de a pune in chestiune realitatea si societatea in care traia.
Daca credeti ca dupa ’89 ceva s-a schimbat, va amagiti in zadar. Noile puteri vor trebui intotdeauna servite cu supunere, asa ca “tovarasii de drum”, scumpii nostri intelectuali, sint prezenti oferindu-si aptitudinile speculative, invatind cu usurinta noul limbaj de lemn predicat la toate conferintele pentru integrare, globalizare, tranzitie etc. Fireste, ceva va pica din chestia aceasta. Elitistii insa, care au rezistat dirz prin cultura sovietizarii, totalitarismului si altor forme de acest gen, propovaduiesc “societatea deschisa” vorbind in acelasi timp si despre riscurile americanizarii, globalizarii etc. Ei ne invata adevarata Cultura, adevarata Arta, adevarata Valoare. Singurul lucru pe care nu ne invata este de a chestiona, de a interoga continuu sistemul in care sintem, indiferent daca este comunist sau capitalist, de dreapta sau de stinga.
Asemenea lui Homer, fiecare generatie este pusa in fata unei ghicitori spuse de copii, careia fie ii va gasi raspunsul, fie va muri de rusine: “Ce putem prinde, omorim si aruncam. Ce nu putem prinde, purtam cu noi”. Raspunsul era: paduchii. In acest sens, ne putem confrunta doar cu ceea ce am inteles. Iar pentru aceasta ar trebui sa facem un continuu proces de interogare, pentru a nu purta cu noi ceva strain de noi.

Citeva povesti cinice

1. Unul dintre cunoscutii mei din generatia “P” (se speculeaza intre Pepsi si Perestroika), Victor Pelevin, devenit intre timp un foarte cunoscut scriitor rus, ne spune o poveste anecdotica cinica, dar reala. Henry Kissinger viziteaza U.R.S.S.-ul. In scopul semnarii unor tratate importante, sovieticii hotarasc sa-i organizeze o vinatoare pentru a-i crea o stare sufleteasca favorabila. Pentru a fi siguri de un vinat reusit, tovarasii au imbracat doi “voluntari” in piele de urs care jucau rol de tinta a invitatului. Incapabil sa-l nimereasca de la mica distanta, Kissinger se napusteste asupra ursului si-l raneste mortal cu un pumnal. In timp ce “ursul” isi da duhul, Kissinger semneaza pe trupul muribundului un acord pentru controlul armamentului. Povesti de acest gen pot fi scrise dupa orice summit. Totul e sa fie cineva care interogheaza si intelege ce se intimpla cu adevarat in spatele aparentelor.

2. La una dintre lansarile de carte, Pelevin este intrebat daca exista o literatura rusa (intrebarea este valabila si pentru cultura). Este o greseala sa se mai creada ca exista o literatura rusa, sustine Pelevin. “Acum traim printre McDonald’s, dolari si masini straine. Ce este rusesc in toate acestea? Clima probabil.”

3. Italienii au o vorba: toate au un pret, dar nu si valoare. Batrinul Benvenuto raspunde foarte bine celor care cred ca americanii domina doar cultura de masa, pe cind europenii pe cea adevarata. Este fals. Asa cum Roma a cucerit Grecia si a preluat modelele ei dezvoltindu-si ulterior propria sa cultura, americanii au dezvoltat ceea ce noi numim cultura europeana. Pe linga domeniul stiintelor exacte si al tehnicii, pe care americanii il controleaza de mai multa vreme, in ultima perioada ei incep sa domine tot mai mult si domenii precum stiintele sociale, filosofia etc., asa-zis europene. Benvenuto are perfecta dreptate cind le raspunde francezilor care se pling ca nu sint tradusi si cunoscuti in Italia. “Pentru a fi tradusi si cunoscuti aici, sustine italianul, incercati sa fiti cunoscuti in S.U.A.” In clipa in care veti fi cunoscuti acolo, veti fi exportati in toate tarile europene cu usurinta. Acest lucru ne spune ca bursa de valori culturale, care ofera girul si pretul valorii, nu se mai afla in batrina Europa, ci in S.U.A.. In momentul in care esti cotat la aceasta bursa de valori, marfa ta va fi cautata si bine platita. Ba mai mult, Noua Roma impune un cu totul alt mecanism de functionare, dinamizare si gestionare a culturii, care este mult mai apropiat de modelul de functionare al Capitalului. Dar despre aceasta, alta data.

This game has no name

Nu stiu cine erau copywriterii sloganurilor comuniste. Tind sa cred ca erau intelectuali si daca s-ar fi lansat astazi in publicitate ar fi cei mai cotati copywriteri ai ideologiei marfii. Ei au facut doar sloganuri pentru idei si nu au crezut ca vor apuca o vreme cind vor putea crea sloganuri pentru marfa.
Marea parte a discursurilor intelectuale dinainte sau de dupa ’89 pot fi reduse la simple lozinci sau sloganuri publicitare. Si cum nu facem o distinctie esentiala intre creatorii de sloganuri ideologice si cei de sloganuri publicitare, observam ca primii, pentru a avea succes, se plasau “pe linie”, iar cea de-a doua categorie e nevoita sa se “pozitioneze”, dupa cum se spune in limbajul de specialitate. Esenta este una pentru ambele – POSITIONING: A BATTLE FOR YOUR MIND. Iar de aici lucrurile decurg de la abordari “tari” precum YOU ALWAYS GET TO THE BASICS (reclama la ceva masina), JUST DO IT (Nike) sau JUST BE (Calvin Klein), pina la abordari “slabe” si smechere de tipul DO IT YOURSELF, MOTHERFUCKER (Reebok) sau IF YOU ARE SO CLEVER SHOW ME YOUR MONEY (nu mai stiu la ce facea reclama acest slogan… probabil la o banca sau la un fond de asigurari).
Tind sa cred ca datoria noastra e sa ne departam tot mai mult de acest gen de discurs intelectual. Nu e de datoria noastra sa fim pro sau contra. Un slogan destept spune: THIS GAME HAS NO NAME. IT WILL NEVER BE THE SAME. Nu e de datoria noastra sa urim sau sa iubim vechea ideologie, nu e de datoria noastra sa iubim sau sa urim noile ideologii. Cred ca datoria noastra, a celor tineri, este de a ne distanta de ele pentru a le putea chestiona cu ironie si cinism.

An excerpt from "The Prophet" by Kahlil Gibran


And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said,
"Speak to us of Children".
And he said:

Your children are not your children,
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but are not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your chilren
as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and
He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far
Let your bending in th earcher's hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
So he loves also the bow that is stable.

de cand se traduce "jew" prin "jidan"(termen insultator)?

N-am intentionat sa jignesc pe nimeni si nu stiam ca "jidan" e un termen insultator; daca e imi cer scuze. Cum s-ar traduce atunci? --- ca n-am un dictionar englez-roman la indemina.

israeli = israelian
jew = ? (eu credeam jidan---corectati-ma)
jewish = de religie ?

mother, or a person who has converted to Judaism according to rabbinical law.
1974 J. R. BAKER Race xiv. 234 From the traditional religious point of view, a
Jew was a person born of a Jewish mother, but this formula suffers from the
defect that the defined word is included in adjectival form in the definition.
The same flaw occurs in part of the new definition enacted by the Israeli
Parliament in..1970, according to which a person is a Jew if he or she is the
offspring of a Jewish mother or has been converted to the Jewish faith by the
Orthodox Rabbinate or by the Rabbis of the Jewish Reform Movement or by the
Rabbis of the Jewish Conservative Movement.

2 a transf. and offensive. As a name of opprobrium: spec. applied to a
grasping or extortionate person (whether Jewish or not) who drives hard
bargains.
In medieval England, Jews, though engaged in many pursuits, were particularly
familiar as money-lenders, their activities being publicly regulated for them
by the Crown, whose proteges they were. In private, Christians also practised
money-lending, though forbidden to do so by Canon Law. Thus the name of Jew
came to be associated in the popular mind with usury and any extortionate
practices that might be supposed to accompany it, and gained an opprobrious
sense.

Killing yourself to live...

Just take a look around you,what do you see?
Pain ,suffering and misery
It's not the waythat the world was meant
It's a pitty you don't understand
Killing yourself to live.

You think that I'm crazy and baby
I know that it's true
Before that you know it I think
That you'll go crazy too

I don't know if I'm up or down
Whether black is white or blue is brown
The colours of my life are different somehow
Little boy blue's a big girl now.


So you think it's me who's strange
But you'vr never had to make the change
Never give your truist away
You'll end up paying'til your dying day...

Alright now. - de Little Eagle la: 15/08/2004 21:38:42
(la: Casuta Postala A Lui Ozzy/Ovi)
AAAAAALLLLLL ABOOOARD HA!HA!HA!

The crazy train is ready now,boys and girls,wellcome to the show that never ends!Step inside my magical mistery train and world,and ride with me,the conductor,Ozzy/Ovi,I'll take you to places never seen before so .......

Wake up and I wanna see your hands up in the air!!!!
I wanna see the earth cracking ...I can't fuckin'here you!You ain't loud enough for me...!What are you? A bunch of pussies?Put some balls into it !C'mon,let-s go now!Clap your hands!
I LOVE YOU AAAALLLLLLL!!!!!

Si incep cu prezentul,cu azi de exemplu(boy,sunt sau nu poet cu rima?).
O vreme nasoala as zice de cacat,ploua,Marilyn a scos cacanarii de pisici afara
in gradina,am urmarit putin Tv olimpiada ne place mult,romanasii sunt si ei prin Grecia,ieri am vazut ceva soccer(fotbal)si spada,domne ce transpusi eram si desigur vroiam ca italianul sa-l bata pe ungur si a facut-o de am sarit in sus amandoi ca nebunii,sa nu uitam,iubesc Itali si italienii si soarta a facut sa am o sotie italianca.

Luna asta n-a fost mult de lucru pt. mine asa e vara,slow dar tot castig bine.
De aceea am acest timp liber sa scriu si trag de el pana nu vine marea furtuna cu sep....de comenzi.
Acum exact 1 sapt. am fost la un party(ziua de nastere a agentului meu,B.J)
am fost cam 60-70 persoane invitati,el are o mansion in Montclair(N.J)cu 7 dormitoare,coloane la intrare,etc.om cu banet.Si cu mari relatii....

Erau manechine de mode,colegii mei de arta si prieteni totodata.B.J.si Hildy(sotia lui)au primul copil,5 luni un baietel f. sucar deja.Ei sunt la 31 ani ca varsta si vor mai avea altul anul ce vine.

Si acum,siropul si salt&pepper to the story,I can't fuckn'heeere you...raise your hands for God's sake,c'mon,lets shake the earth now....
Domne si eu credeam ca sunt un old fart si fetele nu se mai uita la mine....
3 gagicute de 20-25 ani au vrut sa aiba sex cu mine acolo!!!!Una ma alerga si zicea,macar un blow job,alta ma pipaia la cur si ma invita sa merg afara in boscheti,alta zicea ca sa mergem la W.C.si erau...good looking!Una era manechin de mode la ELLE magazine si era asa de frumoasa ca mureai!!!!
Dar le stiu deja...plastic women!
Sex pe moment si maine nu le mai vezi .Am ...baut si m-am facut praf!!!!!

Gagicile,STIAU ca-s casatorit,au vorbit cu Marilyn si totusi se dadeau la mine ...va dati seama ca as fi putut avea ...3 femei intr-o seara?Si AM REFUZAT,s-au sucarit pe mine,dar le aratam cu degetul pe Marilyn si le ziceam:That's my girl!
In trecut....ohhh boy,sa nu credeti ca nu am visat la aceste fete,dar sunt prea loial fetei mele sa o insel si desigur i-am spus totul!Mai era un rusnac din Moscow care era homosexual si ma atingea pe mana mai mereu si imi facea avansuri sa -mi dea un blow job......l-am refuzat si pe el.

Domne,am eu 49 ani pe 3 Sep.ce vine,am fire albe in parul lung,si desigur port ochelarii stil Ozzy,trimisi de Sharon,4 perechi,am codita la par si tot atrag fete .....

Lumea acolo la party credea ca-s un star!Si oare nu sunt?
A doua zi,merg sa fac piata la supermarket(shoprite)si o fetita de 16 ani ce lucreaza vara in vacanta sa faca extra cash(multi elevi de liceu fac asta aici) si era cashier(la cassa)cade pe jos cand ma vede(frumusica foc)si imi zice ca la 2PM iese din serviciu si ca daca vreau...o pot astepta la intrare...vede ca am VERIGHETA pe deget si totusi vrea sex cu mine.Imi poate fi copil for God's sake si as intra si in cacat fiind minora...domne,nu stiu...fetele de azi,sunt altfel dar nu prea mult schimbate de cele ce am cunoscut in tineretea mea,in Ro. sau USA.

Deci orice fac ,vreau sa traiesc o viata reclusiva si calma acum,tot dau peste aventuri aiurite mereu.Azi ..pare o zi calma....oare?Sper!
Fug de lume dar lumea ma ajunge din urma si ma prinde.
Marti merg la Dr. familiei ca de obicei,pt. consult total si la fiecare 3 luni fac asta...am probleme mari cu sanatatea...m-am refacut mult dar mi-au trebuit 4-5 ani sa ajung la asta.

Cu 9 sapt. in urma insa,asa cum stiti,iar m-am apucat de bautura si drugs(only cocaine...parca nu-i de ajuns!!!) dupa o pauza de multi ani...e greu sa te lasi domne...f. greu!!!
M-am lasat iar de ele si de fumat tigari(marijuana la fel)De fapt zace o gramada de marijuana in frigider(e locul unde o mentii bine,pt. cine vrea sa stie)in cutie de metal si NU m-am atins de ea!marilyn mai fumeaza uneori la pipa,nu joint(adica rulata la hartie).Cati din voi n-au fumat macar odata?C'mon,don't gimme the bullshit!!!

Adica...."I smoked but not inhale"?Who are you foolin'maan?

In fine,deci nu mai beau nu mai fumez nimic,nu mai pun nimic in nas!Dar e greu sa te faci bine si Dr. DeNoya a gasit ca-s okay cu inima(ca tensiune...o aveam asa de mare ca omu'se mira ca mai traiesc....)am chiar aparat in casa de masurat,electric si zilnic ma controlez.

La fel si cu ficatu',colesterolul,eram pe duca dar cred ca sunt si azi....I cheated death cred 7 times....nu prea cred eu c-o s-o mai pacalesc....dar asta-i viata!Odata tre sa si mori,nu?
Sper sa apuc sa scriu destule in 2-3 ani si daca nu apuc,din nou,cer la toti ce citesc astea sa pastreze ce am scris pana acum,mai ales admin si Daniel.

In fine,deci remember,life is beautiful,live it to the fullest,traiaste clipa oricare ar fi ea.
Si deci acum Lila(Marilyn si sa stiti ca asa o numesc in intimitate),e in gradina cu Pooghee(pisica femela de 3 ani)si curand se va duce la maica-sa pt. 2 ore.
Bebitsa,motanul de 13 ani e in casa si doarme la picioarele mele.

Azi am si gatit(eu sunt bucatarul....barbatii sunt cei mai buni,cu mici exceptii femeile,nu ma luati la pietre ci sarutati-ma),ieri am mers la Jason,un f. bun amic grec(28 ani)ce e proprietar la un restaurant pescaresc,taica-su Pete l-a pus sa fie boss.Saptamanal merg sa cumpar peste proaspat(orice vreau)
si mereu imi da in plus(pe gratis)ori sardele ,nu la cutie ci crude,masline
pesti micuti de prajit in faina sau malai,scalops sau clams fresh!

Toti,oameni colosal de draguti si prietenosi si saritori.II dau si eu uneori o sticla de vin francez sau italian si chiar romanesc...pe aici exista unul rosu(Merlot si Sauvignon) si alb(Chardonais)numit...VAMPIRE,ati auzit de el?E f. bun si cheap,cam 7 $ sticla.

Azi ,mai tarziu iar la olimpiada si revedem ....Apocalypse Now,avem o mare colectie cu Marlon...I really loved so much that man....!!!!!!!!Si ca om dar ca actor...poate fi egalat?
De Niro,Pacino si cati altii...daca ei au zis ca Marlon IS GOD(in actorie)atunci au sau nu dreptate?

Sex am avut ieri si miercuri trecuta deci cam asta e ,de 2 ori pe sapt. sex,poate nu mai este de aproape 2 ore si a ajuns la 30 min. dar la 49 ani cati avem amandoi,nu-i chiar o rusine....la inceput....Lila trebuia sa se duca la Dr. ginecologic pt. ca avea cistita si dureri si i-a zis ca prea mult sex nu-i bine....e adevarat!Si NU-s deloc John Holmes,I-m average!!!Nu conteaza marimea si lungimea ci ce faci cu ea.
Ala a avut cam 10000 femei,eu doar poate 90...si toate le-am facut fericite.
Bill Wyman(a auzit cineva de el?Basistul de la Rolling Stones?A auzit cineva de Stones?formula veche inca din anii 60,)a avut cam 1000 femei in viata lui....sunt MIC in comparatie cu el sau Holmes.

Dar am avut si eu talentele mele si femeile fericite avand sex cu mine.
In fine.Despre sex altadata.
Curand spre mijlocul lui sept. mergem cu frate-meu de sange Vern(indian Navajo)sotia lui(Vern are 44 ani,par lung pana la brau in coada si e artist plastic f. bun si vinde pictura lui ce o face in traditia indiana...eu i-am dat aceasta sugestie cu 16 ani in urma),deci cu ei si altii cherokee,comanchees,Lakota,Iroquois,shoshonees,ne vom aduna la un Sundance (un ceremonial de rugaciuni si dorinta de LOVE&PEACE pt. intreaga lume)in upstate N.Y.

The elders se vor ruga si pt. mine,si sa stiti ca Dr. nu stiu nimic....ei stiu pastile...indianul stie plante si ierburi si rugaciuni la Wakan Tanka(Great Spirit of the world).
NU oricine e primit in randurile lor.Despre ei alta data,am scris destule acum la chapter 1.

Revin candva,don't forget...
LOVE&PEACE

Conventia Republicanilor si ce zice un Democrat - de LMC la: 02/09/2004 19:40:00
(la: Despre Alegerile din S.U.A.: De ce trebuie sa votam pt. GWB.)
Sint inflacarata si imes de mindra de conventia Republicanilor. Totodata imi pare bine ca printre Democrati mai exista oameni ca Zell Miller care poate face discernamintul intre bine si rau. Puterea cuvintelor lui din speech-ul de aseara puteti sa le cititi mai jos. Imi pare rau ca nu este tradus in Romaneste, ar putea politicienii din Romania sa invete ceva.

********************************
Senator Zell Miller

Since I last stood in this spot, a whole new generation of the Miller Family has been born: Four great grandchildren.

Along with all the other members of our close-knit family -- they are my and Shirley's most precious possessions.

And I know that's how you feel about your family also.

Like you, I think of their future, the promises and the perils they will face.

Like you, I believe that the next four years will determine what kind of world they will grow up in.

And like you, I ask which leader is it today that has the vision, the willpower and, yes, the backbone to best protect my family?

The clear answer to that question has placed me in this hall with you tonight. For my family is more important than my party.

There is but one man to whom I am willing to entrust their future and that man's name is

George Bush.

In the summer of 1940, I was an eight-year-old boy living in a remote little Appalachian valley.

Our country was not yet at war but even we children knew that there were some crazy men across the ocean who would kill us if they could.

President Roosevelt, in his speech that summer, told America "all private plans, all private lives, have been in a sense repealed by an overriding public danger."

In 1940 Wendell Wilkie was the Republican nominee.

And there is no better example of someone repealing their "private plans" than this good man.

He gave Roosevelt the critical support he needed for a peacetime draft, an unpopular idea at the time.

And he made it clear that he would rather lose the election than make national security a partisan campaign issue.

Shortly before Wilkie died he told a friend, that if he could write his own epitaph and had to choose between "here lies a president" or "here lies one who contributed to saving freedom", he would prefer the latter.

Where are such statesmen today?

Where is the bi-partisanship in this country when we need it most?

Now, while young Americans are dying in the sands of Iraq and the mountains of Afghanistan, our nation is being torn apart and made weaker because of the Democrat's manic obsession to bring down our Commander-in-Chief.

What has happened to the party I've spent my life working in?

I can remember when Democrats believed that it was the duty of America to fight for freedom over tyranny.

It was Democratic President Harry Truman who pushed the Red Army out of Iran, who came to the aid of Greece when Communists threatened to overthrow it, who stared down the Soviet blockade of West Berlin by flying in supplies and saving the city.

Time after time in our history, in the face of great danger, Democrats and Republicans worked together to ensure that freedom would not falter. But not today.

Motivated more by partisan politics than by national security, today's Democratic leaders see America as an occupier, not a liberator.

And nothing makes this Marine madder than someone calling American troops occupiers rather than liberators.

Tell that to the one-half of Europe that was freed because Franklin Roosevelt led an army of liberators, not occupiers.

Tell that to the lower half of the Korean Peninsula that is free because Dwight Eisenhower commanded an army of liberators, not occupiers.

Tell that to the half a billion men, women and children who are free today from the Baltics to the Crimea, from Poland to Siberia, because Ronald Reagan rebuilt a military of liberators, not occupiers.

Never in the history of the world has any soldier sacrificed more for the freedom and liberty of total strangers than the American soldier. And, our soldiers don't just give freedom abroad, they preserve it for us here at home.

For it has been said so truthfully that it is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the agitator, who has given us the freedom to protest.

It is the soldier who salutes the flag, serves beneath the flag, whose coffin is draped by the flag who gives that protester the freedom to abuse and burn that flag.

No one should dare to even think about being the Commander in Chief of this country if he doesn't believe with all his heart that our soldiers are liberators abroad and defenders of freedom at home.

But don't waste your breath telling that to the leaders of my party today. In their warped way of thinking America is the problem, not the solution.

They don't believe there is any real danger in the world except that which America brings upon itself through our clumsy and misguided foreign policy.

It is not their patriotism - it is their judgment that has been so sorely lacking. They claimed Carter's pacifism would lead to peace.

They were wrong.

They claimed Reagan's defense buildup would lead to war.

They were wrong.

And, no pair has been more wrong, more loudly, more often than the two Senators from Massachusetts, Ted Kennedy and John Kerry.

Together, Kennedy/Kerry have opposed the very weapons system that won the Cold War and that is now winning the War on Terror.

Listing all the weapon systems that Senator Kerry tried his best to shut down sounds like an auctioneer selling off our national security but Americans need to know the facts.

The B-1 bomber, that Senator Kerry opposed, dropped 40% of the bombs in the first six months of Operation Enduring Freedom.

The B-2 bomber, that Senator Kerry opposed, delivered air strikes against the Taliban in Afghanistan and Hussein's command post in Iraq.

The F-14A Tomcats, that Senator Kerry opposed, shot down Khadifi's Libyan MIGs over the Gulf of Sidra. The modernized F-14D, that Senator Kerry opposed, delivered missile strikes against Tora Bora.

The Apache helicopter, that Senator Kerry opposed, took out those Republican Guard tanks in Kuwait in the Gulf War. The F-15 Eagles, that Senator Kerry opposed, flew cover over our Nation's Capital and this very city after 9/11.

I could go on and on and on: Against the Patriot Missile that shot down Saddam Hussein's scud missiles over Israel, Against the Aegis air-defense cruiser, Against the Strategic Defense Initiative, Against the Trident missile, against, against, against.

This is the man who wants to be the Commander in Chief of our U.S. Armed Forces?

U.S. forces armed with what? Spitballs?

Twenty years of votes can tell you much more about a man than twenty weeks of campaign rhetoric.

Campaign talk tells people who you want them to think you are. How you vote tells people who you really are deep inside.

Senator Kerry has made it clear that he would use military force only if approved by the United Nations.

Kerry would let Paris decide when America needs defending. I want Bush to decide.

John Kerry, who says he doesn't like outsourcing, wants to outsource our national security.

That's the most dangerous outsourcing of all. This politician wants to be leader of the free world.

Free for how long?

For more than twenty years, on every one of the great issues of freedom and security, John Kerry has been more wrong, more weak and more wobbly than any other national figure. As a war protestor, Kerry blamed our military.

As a Senator, he voted to weaken our military. And nothing shows that more sadly and more clearly than his vote this year to deny protective armor for our troops in harms way, far-away.

George Bush understands that we need new strategies to meet new threats.

John Kerry wants to re-fight yesterday's war. George Bush believes we have to fight today's war and be ready for tomorrow's challenges. George Bush is committed to providing the kind of forces it takes to root out terrorists.

No matter what spider hole they may hide in or what rock they crawl under.

George Bush wants to grab terrorists by the throat and not let them go to get a better grip.

From John Kerry, they get a "yes-no-maybe" bowl of mush that can only encourage our enemies and confuse our friends.

I first got to know George Bush when we served as governors together. I admire this man.

I am moved by the respect he shows the First Lady, his unabashed love for his parents and his daughters, and the fact that he is unashamed of his belief that God is not indifferent to America.

I can identify with someone who has lived that line in "Amazing Grace," "Was blind, but now I see," and I like the fact that he's the same man on Saturday night that he is on Sunday morning.

He is not a slick talker but he is a straight shooter and, where I come from, deeds mean a lot more than words.

I have knocked on the door of this man's soul and found someone home, a God-fearing man with a good heart and a spine of tempered steel.

The man I trust to protect my most precious possession: my family.

This election will change forever the course of history, and that's not any history. It's our family's history.

The only question is how. The answer lies with each of us. And, like many generations before us, we've got some hard choosing to do.

Right now the world just cannot afford an indecisive America. Fainthearted, self-indulgence will put at risk all we care about in this world.

In this hour of danger our President has had the courage to stand up. And this Democrat is proud to stand up with him.

Thank you.

God Bless this great country and God Bless George W. Bush.

A Dacian's Prayer - de DESTIN la: 18/09/2004 20:34:15
(la: SUFLETUL ESTE NEMURITOR)
Am incercat sa traduc in limba engleza poezia lui Eminescu,"Rugaciunea unui dac" la solicitarea unor amici si prieteni americani.

Rog a se interveni in ajutor daca traducerea este greoaie sau poate fi imbunatatita.

A Dacian's Prayer

When death did not exist, nor yet eternity,
Before the seed of life had first set living free,
When yesterday was nothing, and time had not begun,
And one included all things, and all was less than one,
When sun and moon and sky, the stars, the spinning earth
Were still part of the things that had not come to birth,
And You quite lonely stood... I ask myself with awe,
Who is this mighty God we bow ourselves before.

Ere yet the Gods existed already He was God
And out of endless water with fire the lightning shed;
He gave the Gods their reason, and joy to earth did bring,
He brought to man forgiveness, and set salvation's spring
Lift up your hearts in worship, a song of praise enfreeing,
He is the death of dying, the primal birth of being.

To him I owe my eyes that I can see the dawn,
To him I owe my heart wherein is pity born;
Whene'er I hear the tempest, I hear him pass along
Midst multitude of voices raised in a holy song;
And yet of his great mercy I beg still one behest:
That I at last be taken to his eternal rest.

Be curses on the fellow who would my praise acclaim,
But blessings upon him who does my soul defame;
Believe no matter whom who slanders my renown,
Give power to the arm that lifts to strike me down;
Let him upon the earth above all others loom
Who steals away the stone that lies upon my tomb.

Hunted by humanity, let me my whole life fly
Until I feel from weeping my very eyes are dry;
Let everyone detest me no matter where I go,
Until from persecution myself I do not know;
Let misery and horror my heart transform to stone,
That I may hate my mother, in whose love I have grown;
Till hating and deceiving for me with love will vie,
And I forget my suffering, and learn at last to die.

Dishonoured let me perish, an outcast among men;
My body less than worthy to block the gutter then,
And may, o God of mercy, a crown of diamonds wear
The one who gives my heart the hungry dogs to tear,
While for the one who in my face does callous fling a clod
In your eternal kingdom reserve a place, o God.

Thus only, gracious Father, can I requitance give
That you from your great bounty vouched me the joy to live;
To gain eternal blessings my head I do not bow,
But rather ask that you in hating compassion show.
Till comes at last the evening, your breath will mine efface,
And into endless nothing I go, and leave no trace.

PS Thanks! Denysa, tie iti apartine ideea de a veni cu aceasta poezie pe aceasta tema.

Cine se teme de suferinta...va suferi de teama.

Instructions for a wife then and now - de MMM la: 16/11/2004 04:16:47
(la: Femeia)
The following is from a 1950's Home Economics textbook intended for
the High School girls, teaching how to prepare for married life.

1. Have dinner ready: Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a
delicious meal - on time. This is a way of letting him know that you
have been thinking about him, and are concerned about his needs. Most
men are hungry when they come home and the prospects of a good meal
are part of the warm welcome needed.

2. Prepare yourself: Take 15 minutes to rest so you will be refreshed
when he arrives. Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and
be fresh looking. He has just been with a lot of work-weary people. Be
a little gay and a little more interesting. His boring day may need a
lift.

3. Clear away the clutter. Make one last trip through the main part of
the house just before your husband arrives, gathering up school books,
toys, paper, etc. Then run a dust cloth over the tables. Your husband
will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order, and it will give
you a lift too.

4. Prepare the children: Take a few minutes to wash the children's
hands and faces if they are small, comb their hair, and if necessary,
change their clothes. They are little treasures and he would like to
see them playing the part.

5. Minimize the noise: At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise
of washer, dryer, dishwasher, or vacuum. Try to encourage the children
to be quiet. Be happy to see him. Greet him with a warm smile and be
glad to see him.

6. Some DON'TS: Don't greet him with problems or complaints. Don't
complain if he's late for dinner. Count this as minor compared with
what he might have gone through that day.

7. Make him comfortable: Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or
suggest he lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready
for him. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in
a low, soft, soothing and pleasant voice. Allow him to relax and
unwind.

8. Listen to him: You may have a dozen things to tell him, but the
moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first.

9. Make the evening his: Never complain if he does not take you out to
dinner or to other places of entertainment; instead try to understand
his world of strain and pressure and his need to be home and relax.

10. The Goal: Try to make your home a place of peace and order where
your husband can relax.


Now The updated version for the 2000s woman.

1. Have dinner ready: Make reservations ahead of time. If your day
becomes too hectic just leave him a voice mail message regarding where
you'd like to eat and at what time. This lets him know that your day
has been crappy and gives him an opportunity to change your mood.

2. Prepare yourself: A quick stop at the "LANCOME" counter on your way
home will do wonders for your outlook and will keep you from becoming
irritated every time he belches at the table. (Don't forget to use his
credit card!)

3. Clear away the clutter: Call the housekeeper and let her know
you'll need her for an extra day this week. Tell her that any
miscellaneous items left on the floor by the children can be placed in
the Goodwill box in the garage.

4. Prepare the children: Drop them off at grandma's!

5. Minimize the noise: When he arrives at home remind him that the
washer and garbage disposal are still not working properly and the
noise is driving you crazy (but do this in a nice way and greet him
with a warm smile...this way he might fix it faster).

6. Some DON'TS: Don't greet him with problems and complaints. Let him
speak first, and then your complaints will get more attention and
remain fresh in his mind throughout dinner. Don't complain if he's
late for dinner. Simply remind him that the last one home does the
cooking and the cleanup.

7. Make him comfortable: Remind him where he can find a warm fuzzy
blanket if he's cold. This will show you really care.

8. Listen to him: But don't ever let him get the last word.

9. Make the evening his: a chance to get the washer and garbage
disposal fixed.

10. The Goal: To try to keep things amicable without reminding him
that you make more money than he does.

mersic de biblio...adevarat ca am citit cate ceva din fiecare cand eram mic, dar de asemenea, eram unpic razboinic si "vedeam" cam in genul "what I'd say to martians " by Jack Handey
WHAT I’D SAY TO THE MARTIANS
by Jack Handey
Issue of 2005-08-08 and 15
Posted 2005-08-01


People of Mars, you say we are brutes and savages. But let me tell you one thing: if I could get loose from this cage you have me in, I would tear you guys a new Martian asshole.You say we are violent and barbaric, but has any one of you come up to my cage and extended his hand? Because, if he did, I would jerk it off and eat it right in front of him. “Mmm, that’s good Martian,” I would say.

You say your civilization is more advanced than ours. But who is really the more “civilized” one? You, standing there watching this cage? Or me, with my pants down, trying to urinate on you? You criticize our Earth religions, saying they have no relevance to the way we actually live. But think about this: if I could get my hands on that god of yours, I would grab his skinny neck and choke him until his big green head exploded.

We are a warlike species, you claim, and you show me films of Earth battles to prove it. But I have seen all the films about twenty times. Get some new films, or, so help me, if I ever get out of here I will empty my laser pistol into everyone I see, even pets.

Speaking of films, I could show you some films, films that portray a different, gentler side of Earth. And while you’re watching the films I’d sort of slip away, because guess what: the projector is actually a thing that shoots out spinning blades! And you fell for it! Well, maybe not now you wouldn’t.

You point to your long tradition of living peacefully with Earth. But you know what I point to? Your stupid heads.

You say there is much your civilization could teach ours. But perhaps there is something that I could teach you—namely, how to scream like a parrot when I put your big Martian head in a vise.

You claim there are other intelligent beings in the galaxy besides earthlings and Martians. Good, then we can attack them together. And after we’re through attacking them we’ll attack you.

I came here in peace, seeking gold and slaves. But you have treated me like an intruder. Maybe it is not me who is the intruder but you.

No, not me. You, stupid.

You keep my body imprisoned in this cage. But I am able to transport my mind to a place far away, a happier place, where I use Martian heads for batting practice.

I admit that sometimes I think we are not so different after all. When you see one of your old ones trip and fall down, do you not point and laugh, just as we on Earth do? And I think we can agree that nothing is more admired by the people of Earth and Mars alike than a fine, high-quality cigarette. For fun, we humans like to ski down mountains covered with snow; you like to“milk” bacteria off of scum hills and pack them into your gill slits. Are we so different? Of course we are, and you will be even more different if I ever finish my homemade flamethrower.

You may kill me, either on purpose or by not making sure that all the surfaces in my cage are safe to lick. But you can’t kill an idea. And that idea is: me chasing you with a big wooden mallet.

You say you will release me only if I sign a statement saying that I will not attack you. And I have agreed, the only condition being that I can sign with a long sharp pen. And still you keep me locked up.

True, you have allowed me reading material—not the “human reproduction” magazines I requested but the works of your greatest philosopher, Zandor or Zanax or whatever his name is. I would like to discuss his ideas with him—just me, him, and one of his big, heavy books.

If you will not free me, at least deliver a message to Earth. Send my love to my wife, and also to my girlfriend. And to my children, if I have any anyplace. Ask my wife to please send me a bazooka, which is a flower we have on Earth. If my so-called friend Don asks you where the money I owe him is, please anally probe him. Do that anyway.

If you keep me imprisoned long enough, eventually I will die. Because one thing you Martians do not understand is that we humans cannot live without our freedom. So, if you see me lying lifeless in my cage, come on in, because I’m dead. Really.

Maybe one day we will not be the enemies you make us out to be. Perhaps one day a little Earth child will sit down to play with a little Martian child, or larva, or whatever they are. But, after a while, guess what happens: the little Martian tries to eat the Earth child. But guess what the Earth child has? A gun. You weren’t expecting that, were you? And now the Martian child is running away, as fast as he can. Run, little Martian baby, run!

I would like to thank everyone for coming to my cage tonight to hear my speech. Donations will be gratefully accepted. (No Mars money, please.)

They tell me Seven Sisters in - de Cassandra la: 17/11/2005 19:53:00
(la: Oamenii nu se trag din maimuta)
They tell me Seven Sisters in New Orleans
that can really fix a man up right
And I'm headed for New Orleans, Louisiana,
I'm travelin' both day and night.

I hear them say the oldest Sister
look just like she's 21
And said she can look right in your eyes
and tell you just exactly what you want done.

Good morning, Seven Sisters,
just thought I'd come down and see
Will you build me up where I'm torn down,
and make me strong where I'm weak?

I went to New Orleans, Louisiana,
just on account of something I heard
The Seven Sisters told me everything I wanted to know,
and they wouldn't let me speak a word.

Now, it's Sarah, Minnie, Bertha,
Holly, Dolly, Betty and Jane
Sarah, Minnie, Bertha,
Holly, Dolly, Betty and Jane
You can't know them Sisters apart,
because they all looks just the same.

Seven times a year
the Seven Sisters will visit me all in my sleep
And they said I won't have no trouble,
and said I'll live twelve days in a week.

Wanna go down in Louisiana,
and get right out of your bein'
These Seven Sisters can do anything in Louisiana,
but you'll have to go to New Orleans.

i'm not a perfect person. there are many things i wish i didnt do
but i continue learning. i never meant to do those things to you.
and so i have to say before i go, that i just want you to know

i've found a reason for me, to change who i used to be
a reason to start over new, and the reason is you

i'm sorry that i hurt, its something i must live with everyday
and all the pain i put you through, i wish that i could take it all away
and be the one who catches all your tears, thats why i need you to hear

i'm not a perfect person, i never meant to do those things to you
and so i have to say before i go that i just want you to know

i've found a reason for me, to change who i used to be
a reason to start over new, and the reason is you
i've found a reason to show a side of me you didnt know
a reason for all that i do, and the reason is you

Daca mergi la plaja, nu uita de sfaturile lui Baz Luhrman: :))

Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ’99
If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be
it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by
scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable
than my own meandering
experience…I will dispense this advice now. Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not
understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded.
But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and
recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before
you and how fabulous you really looked….You’re not as fat as you
imagine. Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as
effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing
bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that
never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm
on some idle Tuesday. Do one thing everyday that scares you Sing Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with
people who are reckless with yours. Floss Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes
you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with
yourself. Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you
succeed in doing this, tell me how. Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements. Stretch Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your
life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they
wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year
olds I know still don’t. Get plenty of calcium. Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone. Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll have children,maybe
you won’t, maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the funky
chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary…what ever you do, don’t
congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either – your
choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s. Enjoy your body,
use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it, or what other people
think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever
own.. Dance…even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room. Read the directions, even if you don’t follow them. Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly. Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for
good. Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the
people most likely to stick with you in the future. Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you
should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and
lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you
knew when you were young. Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live
in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft. Travel. Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will
philander, you too will get old, and when you do you’ll fantasize
that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were
noble and children respected their elders. Respect your elders. Don’t expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund,
maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one
might run out. Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will
look 85. Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who
supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of
fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the
ugly parts and recycling it for more than
it’s worth. But trust me on the sunscreen…

un sfat util pt zile insorite:

Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ?9...Wear sunscreen


If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists, whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience. I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded. But trust me, in 20 years youll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you cant grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked...Youre not as fat as you imagine.

Dont worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing everyday that scares you

Sing

Dont be reckless with other peoples hearts, dont put up with people who are reckless with yours.

Floss

Dont waste your time on jealousy; sometimes youre ahead, sometimes youre behind...the race is long, and in the end its only with yourself.

Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you succeed in doing this, tell me how.

Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.

Stretch

Dont feel guilty if you dont know what to do with your life...the most interesting people I know didnt know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still dont.

Get plenty of calcium

Be kind to your knees, youll miss them when theyre gone.

Maybe youll marry, maybe you wont, maybe youll have children, maybe you wont, maybe youll divorce at 40, maybe youll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary...what ever you do, dont congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either - your choices are half chance, so are everybody elses.

Enjoy your body, use it every way you can...dont be afraid of it, or what other people think of it, its the greatest instrument youll ever own.

Dance...even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.

Read the directions, even if you dont follow them.

Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

49 second break in speech -- Quindon singing

Get to know your parents, youll never know when theyll be gone for good. Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go, but for the precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography in lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.

Travel.

Accept certain inalienable truths, price will rise, politicians will philander, you too will get old, and when you do youll fantasize that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.

Respect your elders.

Dont expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one might run out.

Dont mess too much with your hair, or by the time its 40, it will look 85.

Be careful who advice you buy, but be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than its worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen...
