You're not entitled to jackshit, so don't act like you are.
Respect your elders, odds are they've "been there, done that" a helluva lot more than you think.

Learn to appreciate a lot of different music.

IF you ruin my nice thread I will hunt you down and kill you.

that is all

Then teaching your spawn to Field Strip a 50 Cal would be useful.

Also, that degree I'm going to insist you get and will not accept otherwise will provide you a lifetime of independence.

  • "Temperance. Eat not to dullness; drink not to elevation."
  • "Silence. Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself; avoid trifling conversation."
  • "Order. Let all your things have their places; let each part of your business have its time."
  • "Resolution. Resolve to perform what you ought; perform without fail what you resolve."
  • "Frugality. Make no expense but to do good to others or yourself; i.e., waste nothing."
  • "Industry. Lose no time; be always employ'd in something useful; cut off all unnecessary actions."
  • "Sincerity. Use no hurtful deceit; think innocently and justly, and, if you speak, speak accordingly."
  • "Justice. Wrong none by doing injuries, or omitting the benefits that are your duty."
  • "Moderation. Avoid extremes; forbear resenting injuries so much as you think they deserve."
  • "Cleanliness. Tolerate no uncleanliness in body, cloaths, or habitation."
  • "Tranquility. Be not disturbed at trifles, or at accidents common or unavoidable."
  • "Chastity. Rarely use venery but for health or offspring, never to dullness, weakness, or the injury of your own or another's peace or reputation."
  • "Humility. Imitate Jesus and Socrates."

Wish I could take credit for those, but that's all Ben Franklin.

#3 gave him the most trouble, actually. He was a very unorganized person.
