General and unsolicited advice:

• If you click on people's personal websites or their social-networking profiles in order to find out more about them, and webpage automatically begins to play music, then you already know all you need to.

• No matter how much money you put in the Salvation Army kettle, they'll just keep ringing that bell. So don't bother; it's no use trying to please someone who'll never be satisfied.

• Drawing a line in the sand can be hard to see, but drawing a line on sandpaper just messes up your pencil.

• You can't tell a blind man you don't stink.

• When making a decision between scaling a wall or climbing a wall, always go with the ladder.

• No matter which way the wind is blowing and which way you point the spout on the snowblower, the snow will always, always, always blow directly back into your face. Scientists refer to this phenomenon as the Harhar Effect.

• Snowblower jokes in mid-August? Even if they're funny, it's still bad idea. And when they're not funny? Even worse.

• Always keep a map of Missouri in your car because you never know when you might need it. You could be stranded, out of gas, in the middle of the Missouri nowhere and need some kindling to start a fire.

• It's always better to plagiarize from Encarta than from Wikipedia, because people actually read Wikipedia.

• If you're ever worried that you might have a concussion, just take a nap. If you don't wake up, then you'll know you had a concussion.
