“Anyone but him/her” is a virtually infallible way to determine who will be promoted to run your department. (Simply look around for the one who elicits the strongest “anyone but them” response.)
A teenage dude’s attention span – in milliseconds – is calculated by dividing his I.Q. by the length (squared) of his wang in operating condition. (Known problems: when he’s in heat, his intellect is too low to count; he’ll lie about his size.)

Hambo’s Defensive Eating Law: When confronted with food you don’t recognize, don’t be a hero. Wait for someone else to try it first. It’s better to be a witness at their coroner’s inquest than to be the guest of honor at yours.
Hambo’s Character Building Consequences Axiom: Although character building begins when things go wrong with your ‘best laid plan’, it’s not an official character building episode, until you start swearing.

‘Good Samaritan’ is Mother Nature code for a future human gene pool improvement candidate.
Any sport that includes the word ‘extreme’ in its name is, at best, insanely dangerous, and is, in reality, little more than organized suicide with an eager audience cheering the testosterone-poisoned participants to their doom.
A so-called ‘living wage’ is nothing more elaborate than the much more familiar ‘minimum wage’…on steroids.
Network television sucks, because it spends too much time being politically correct and too little time presenting intellectually-stimulating entertainment.
A nation comprised entirely of CEO’s, MBA’s, shysters, political hacks and burger flippers is never going to invent anything except rampant poverty.
Professional students stay in college, piling up degrees, until their deep-pocket daddy – or, daddy-in-law – offers them a job.
Any assertion that the International Organization of People Who Are Bigger Than The Goodyear Blimp are campaigning to repeal the law of gravity is only a slight exaggeration.
The governments obsession with road signs, speed limits and traffic signals reeks of authoritarianism and the naked aggression of a Fascist police state.
Attention Oppressors: Visiting D.C. can be very hazardous to your freedom. Based on D.C.’s Draconian in the extreme hate crime law, you can be charged with a hate crime for breathing, if the local authorities decide to nail your lily-white ass.
Attention Government Cess-School Inmates: We’re sorry your mandatory government cess-school incarceration doesn’t include meaningful training in such mundane topics as reading, writing and arithmetic, so, today, we’re going to teach you to say ‘white male oppression’ with genuine, heartfelt emotion.
Never trust a company whose shyster-imposed product disclaimer is longer than the ‘meat’ of their advertisement.
When you hear a company announce than an executive is “leaving to pursue his own interests”, it’s the employment equivalent of “Help! I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.”

When Ivory Tower eggheads extol the benefits gained from racial diversity on campus, they neglect to tell, whomever, that these ‘diverse’ racial groups stare at each other, across an Ivory Tower-perpetrated, self-segregated void, from such great distances they need a Hubble Telescope to see each other.
Political correctness is a predictable byproduct produced by intellectual lethargy. It’s much easier for intellectual flat-liners to outlaw entire areas of well-reasoned discourse than it is to re-animate their flabby, intellectual muscles.

There are some conversations that just aren’t worth having. Why? It’s not the subject matter, which, quite often, is compelling, and worthy of a spirited, but polite, exchange of views. The reason I steadfastly avoid some discussions is the simple fact that it’s usually a waste of time.
