    In all your years of wisdom, what things have you learned you should never, ever do, ever.

    I'll start off with: Never ever eat sugar from a public sugar bowl

    ...I was driving past a cafe one day and saw a man spitting into the sugar bowl. I can only imagine this eventually hardened into a lump :eek:.

    Another one is never, under any circumstances eat yellow snow.....

    Never play World of Warcraft.

    Don't flame me, please, it's pointless and will only wasteland the thread.

    Here is my perspective, so far, now having been an adult much longer than a child:

    Never date more than one woman thinking, "Oh I am young and plan to date for a long time before I get married."

    Heck, it doesn't even work well on "The Bachelor". ;)

    ..................

    Don't skateboard without a helmet.

    ..................

    For work, don't do something you hate because you think the money is good, and that one day you can just get out of the field. Don't study a field in school because you will think it pays well yet have nothing in common with the job.

    .................

    Don't have puppies, kittens, or babies late in life thinking it will be just as easy to raise them when you were young.

    .................

    For most people, don't think it's as easy to burn calories as once was. :)

    What's funny is that my ideas either come from personal experience, or are stories I may hear reiterated from fellow middle aged, or older, people I know. These are certainly things I heard as a child, but this short list are just some things that have stuck out as having real life examples I can relate with, that's all.

    Here's some others:

    Don't condemn leather goods if you eat hamburgers.

    ..............

    Don't think what a politician says is what he/she intends to do.

    .............

    Don't judge a person by their appearance.

    ...............

    When older, get up more slowly.

    ..............

    And always remember, kids get stupider every year when it comes to driving a car. :)

    Don't count your chickens before they're hatched. (Seriously!!!)

    Don't count on anyone else to do something for you that you should be doing for yourself.

    Don't mix bleach and ammonia!

    Don't text while you drive EVER!

    iPods are bad while driving too! Turn it on before you drive, don't touch it unless you are at a complete stop!

    Don't underestimate the wrath of an Old Man when somebody offends his daughter. It's called Old Man power and they all have it; not all of them wield it carefully either.

    Never ring home and say you're leaving in five minutes before you've actually finished the job.

    Don't ever use Nutella and breadsticks to make a giant Choc Dip. It does not work. I repeat! It does not work.

    Do NOT let your friends drive your car.

    Do NOT substitute vodka for beer in beer pong.

    Do NOT use your iPhone while driving.

    Do NOT put detergent in the dishwasher or foil in the microwave, lol.

    Don't lie about who you are when dating someone who you think is marriage material.

    I guess you meant: Don't poke Nutella with breadsticks.

    You can use a knife to spread nutella on breadsticks.
    I find spreading on crackers easier. =)

    1. Tug on superman's cape. (thx, Jim)

    2. Don't yank your clunky, brass zipper up w/o checking first.

    3. Underestimate the power of a sincere apology and flowers.
