I thought oldman was keeping a trend with the "W" thing but I guess it was just me.




Heh, sorry, aliteration for that lot was a little beyond me after a days work

Ride, Not that mine is the wisdom of soloman, but I would be interested in why you disagree with some of my points, share if you wish




Sure.

1. never borrow or lend substantial amounts of money to/from friends

True friendship should be able to get over money problems.

10. Never make foolish wagers

Foolish wagers are fun. Never bet more than what you are ready to lose.

12. Be kind to animals

It might sound mean, but I honestly don't care about animals.

13. learn to forgive, or at least not to hate

A little hate is good for you. Keeps you motivated. Keep it in check though.

14. Listen to your parents- they are invariably right

That's complete horseshit. Why should they own the absolute truth simply because they're your parents? If your parents told you that you have 3 arms would they still be right?

Travel while you are young....do it alone.
Meet People every where you can....make friends with them and see thier world.
Read Lao Tzu, Jesus, Mohamed, Zen, Bagadvita...develop some sort of spiritual life, any sort you like.
Read cartoons every day...and suck up to an oldman you might learn something...lol.
Get in a ring and fight...learn to face the fear of violence head on.... do it at least once win or lose you can`t fail.
Keep your eyes and your heart WIDE open...even when it hurts like hell to look and it hurts even more to feel. Learn how lucky you are to be healthy and young.
Never forget it....stay young and healthy as long as you can.
Teach your kids to stay young and healthy as long as they can...you might need thier help when your old.
Learn to start each and every new day happy and free of expectations.
Listen to the silence, go fishing.
Go to a wild place and stay over night alone under the stars with just a blanket and a close friend,dog,or lover.

For goodness sake people. The kid is 13!

That's a bit too much information, don't you think?

How about something a little simpler?

BE all you can be.
DO all you can do.
LIVE in the moment.

Allow me to nitpick...

Quote:

To assume is to make an ass out of u and me...

Quote:

10. Never make foolish wagers

Foolish wagers are fun. Never bet more than what you are ready to lose.




Agreed, wagers are fun. Wagering something you aren't willing to lose would be foolish.

Quote:

12. Be kind to animals

It might sound mean, but I honestly don't care about animals.




The way we treat animals is remniscent of the way we treat people. I think you were just in a bad mood.

Quote:

13. learn to forgive, or at least not to hate

A little hate is good for you. Keeps you motivated. Keep it in check though.




I disagree, but in the course of semantics. I don't think it's "hate" you're talking about, rather than a need to prove the naysayers wrong.

Quote:

14. Listen to your parents- they are invariably right

That's complete horseshit. Why should they own the absolute truth simply because they're your parents? If your parents told you that you have 3 arms would they still be right?




I agree that parents don't have a monopoly on THE TRUTH (tm). They DO, however, have your best interests at heart. Even if they may be too screwed up in the head to express their love in a wholesome way.

Ride, I respect you more than you might think simply because you aren't PC.

Hope to debate you in the future.

My turn to nitpick.
Martial arts talk has nothing to do with wagers,the way we treat animals,wearing condoms,hate,parents,etc...
Let this thread die with the all the others like it or it will soon be a flame war.

1: Purity of Conversation - Each forum area is dedicated to a particular area of MA. The 'talk' forum is for general discussion, but even so, it must be largely MA related. The odd deviation is within your gift to deal with, however please enforce the basic purpose of this resource.

2: Prohibited areas of discussion: The following areas of discussion are strictly prohibited; Religion, Sexuality, Politics, Racism, Nationalism. Please delete these threads on sight and warn the transgressor.



Thanks.

that's an assumption you're pulling out of thin air...

No, i'm talking about hate. As in wishing someone was dead. Hating feels good. Without hate, there wouldn't be love. Have you never felt like destroying something beautiful simply because you hated everything at this precise moment? Hate will make you feel alive. (i'm somebody who's kinda passionate... )

Yeah, but do they really know what's best for you?
