interesting thoughts of the day...

WORTH THE READ IMO

Random Thoughts of the Day

-I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.


-More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can
think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell
my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves
me.


-Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you
realize you're wrong.


-I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to
have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and
sticks when they've invented the lighter?


-Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you're
going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to
be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the
direction from which you came, you have to first do something like
check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to
yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you're
crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.



-I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.



-The letters T and G are very close to each other on a keyboard. This
recently became all too apparent to me and consequently I will never
be ending a work email with the phrase "Regards" again.



-Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't
work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically
fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all
know how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards
or FAQ's. We just figured it out. Today's kids are soft.



-There is a great need for "sarcasm" font.



-Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and
suddenly realize I had no idea what the f was going on when I first
saw it.



-I think everyone has a movie that they love so much, it actually
becomes stressful to watch it with other people. I'll end up wasting
90 minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone's
laughing at the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little
bit harder (and a millisecond earlier) to prove that I'm still the
only one who really, really gets it.



-How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?



-I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than
take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.



-I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear
your computer history if you die.



-The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a
text.



-A recent study has shown that playing beer pong contributes to the
spread of mono and the flu. Yeah, if you suck at it.



-Was learning cursive really necessary?



-Lol has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to say".



-I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.



-My brother's Municipal League baseball team is named the Stepdads.
Seeing as none of the guys on the team are actual stepdads, I inquired
about the name. He explained, "Cuz we beat you, and you hate us."
Classy, bro.



-Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart", all
I hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart".



-How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod
and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?



-I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up
to prevent a dick from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers!



-Every time I have to spell a word over the phone using 'as in'
examples, I will undoubtedly draw a blank and sound like a complete
idiot. Today I had to spell my boss's last name to an attorney and
said "Yes that's G as in...(10 second lapse)..ummm...Goonies"



-What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each other?



-While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and
instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart.



-MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I
know how to get out of my neighborhood.



-Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person
died.



-I find it hard to believe there are actually people who get in the
shower first and THEN turn on the water.



-Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty,
and you can wear them forever.


-I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.



-Bad decisions make good stories


-Is it just me or do high school girls get sluttier & sluttier every year

Sometimes I just wonder at the idiots that do this kind of thing, Oh and Mapquest sucks once you get out of your neighborhood.

so many of those are true, I love the one that states about the jerk swirving and people try to block him. I will go out of my way to do that to people sometimes. Also the one about the red light I like being first when theres a ricer next to you with a four cylinder and you can blow smoke into his car with a good launch.

WORD. I love my Garmin. I have had fairly good luck with yahoo maps, and most of the time google maps. But the gps is much better. I have GPS on my phone through Verizon Wireless but it SUCKS too!
