Car mechanics tell you the truth.

You don't give a rat's ass if someone notices your new haircut.

The world is your urinal.

You never have to drive to another gas station because this one's just too "yucky."

Same work...more pay.

Wrinkles add character.

Wedding Dress $5000; Tux rental $100.

People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them.

The occasional well-rendered belch is practically expected.

New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet.

Your pals can be trusted never to trap you with: "So, notice anything different?"

One mood, ALL the time.

You know stuff about tanks.

A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase.

You can open all your own jars.

Dry cleaners and hair stylists don't rob you blind.

Three pairs of shoes are more than enough.

Stupid Things To Just Avoid Saying
« Reply #232 on: October 07, 2007, 08:45:56 AM »
If You Can't Pronounce It, Don't Try (and this means us, too):

    * "NUKE-you-ler" instead of nuclear
    * "WOOwul" instead of rural
    * "fee-NAHL-ph-THuh-leen" instead of  phenolphthalein
    * Cupola
    * Ballast
    * Subsequent
    * Debacle
    * Composite
    * Expecially
    * Idear


    * ATM machine
    * GPS Systems
    * PIN number
    * JPL laboratories
    * NASA administration
    * ISBN number
    * TVA authority
    * ICBM missile
    * PCL language printer
    * SAM missile
    * PIF file
    * MSDS sheet
    * HIV virus
    * circumnavigate around
    * ASP Page

Don't Be Stupid, Part I

    * "meteoric rise" - meteors don't rise
    * "quantum jump" to describe a sudden radical change - quantum jumps are actually the most miniscule possible discreet jumps in a given situation
    * "UFO" - if you believe its a space ship, its identified.  In fact, if you name it t all, it has an identity.  This abbreviation is automatically self-defeating
    * "turned up missing" - did it turn up, or is it missing?
    * "I could care less" - could you care a lot less, or a little less, or a differential amount less (see "quantum jump")?  If you care the absolute minimum possible, then you COULDN'T care less.  Obviously, we could care less about language.
    * "A perk of the job" - Does this mean caffeine injections?  Or are there no newspaper editors that know what a "perq" is?
    * "Can I borrow a kleenex?" - No.  I don't want it back when you are done.  You may keep the kleenex.
    * "Motorized Cable Car" - Is it motorized, or is it a cable car?
    * "Growing shortage" - why not a shrinking overload?
    * "March for world hunger" - isn't there enough world hunger already?
    * "Literally" to emphasize something that is definitely not literal: "summer is literally just around the corner".
    * "not quite up to par"- shouldn't this be "not quite down to par"?  Correction!! "par" means 'a benchmark or goal'. It's only in golf that it's a lower limit to reach; otherwise it can be an upper limit too. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Don't Be Stupid, Part II

    * "I don't know...brown?" (don't even ask)
    * "I dreamed I was a giant number 2." (the DIGIT!)
    * "Then I took another dump."  (a friend who meant "fall" while skiing)
    * "Could I just have an inch of your stool?" - this is the worst question ever asked in a bar, no matter how innocent the intent.  Actually, no matter what the intent.

What Do These Signs Mean?

    * "Fire Restoration Service" - in case that darn fire department comes and puts one out?
    * "Disaster Restoration Service" - (see above)
    * During a snow storm in Boston, it was announced on the radio that there was "...a no parking ban."  Do you get a ticket if you don't park?
    *  "The suspect was traveling at a high rate of speed"   A rate of speed(or a rate of velocity) is a speed per time, which is acceleration. which they probably don't mean, but even if they did, why didn't they just say so?

Just Avoid, Whether They Are Real Words Or Not  (thank you to George Carlin)

    * Pap Smear
    * pianist
    * uvula
    * proctor
    * clicitrus
    * anusol
    * sprunt
    * behoove - does this mean "add hooves to"?

Just Avoid II

    * "Y2K" as a matter of principle.  Become a member of "WHA" ("we hate acronyms")
    * "Hot enough for ya?"
    * "It's not the heat, it's the humidity."
    * "Pet peeve"
    * "Working hard or hardly working?"
    * "...not bad for a Monday."
    * "Cyber"anything

Our Favorite Oxymorons

    * "discount luxury store"
    * "jumbo shrimp"
    * "military intelligence"
    * "Joe's lonely night" (you know who you are)
    * "modeling school"
    * "state worker"
    * "heavy metal song"
    * "criminal attorney"

But PLEASE, Use These

    * craptacular
    * piker
    * throttle
    * geek-asm (a joyful feeling of technological triumph)
    * poon
    * cronch
    * vacwm (instead of vacuum)
    * "xing" (meaning "want to but can't")
    * recorental, recommental
    * laminar
    * Stealth ducks
    * Imprimatur
    * defenestrate
    * spleen
    * blintzes
    * Aa
    * Yoda

These Aren't Real Words?

    * commentate
    * visitate
    * interferon

How to determine if you are an engineer:

The only jokes you receive are through email (OUCH)

At Christmas, it goes without saying that you will be the one to find the burnt-out bulb in the string of Christmas lights.

Buying flowers for your girlfriend/boyfriend or spending the money to upgrade your RAM is a moral dilemma

If you find that you have to often explain how to use the gifts you have given other people.

Everyone else on the Alaskan Cruise is on deck peering at the scenery, and you are still on a personal tour of the engine room

In college, you thought Spring Break was metal fatigue failure

The Salespeople at Circuit City can't answer any of your questions

You are always late to meetings

You are at an air show and know how fast the skydivers are falling

You are next in line on death row in a French Prison and you find that the guillotine is not working properly, so you offer to fix it.

You bought your wife/husband a new CD ROM drive for her birthday

You forget to get a haircut (for 6 months!)

You can quote scenes from any Monty Python movie

You can type 70 words per minute but can't read your own handwriting

You can't write unless the paper has both horizontal and vertical lines

You comment to your wife/husband that her straight hair is nice and parallel

You go on the rides at Disneyland and sit backwards in the chairs to see how they do the special effects

You have Dilbert comics/paphanelia displayed anywhere in your work area

You have ever saved the power cord from a broken appliance

You have more friends on the internet than in real life

You have backed up your hard drive

You have never bought any new underwear or socks for yourself since you got married.

You have used coat hangars and duct tape for something other than hanging coats and taping ducts

You know what http:// stands for

You look forward to Christmas only to put together the kids' toys

You own one or more white short-sleeve dress shirts

You see a good design and still have to change it

You spent more on your calculator than you did on your wedding ring

You still own a slide rule and you know how to use it

You think a pocket protector is a fashion accessory

You think that when people around you yawn, it's because they didn't get enough sleep

You wear black socks with white tennis shoes (or vice versa)

You window shop at Radio Shack

You're in the backseat of your car, she/he is looking wistfully at the moon, and you're trying to locate a geosynchronous satellite

Your checkbook always balances

Your laptop computer costs more than your car

Your wife/husband hasn't the foggiest idea of what you do at work

Your wrist watch has more computing power than a 300 MHz pentium

You've already calculated how much you make per second

You've ever tried to repair a $5 radio

Your four basic food groups are: 1. Caffeine 2. Fat 3. Sugar 4.Chocolate

"Whenever I get a package of plain M&Ms, I make it my duty to continue the strength and robustness of the candy as a species. To this end, I hold M&M duels. Taking two candies between my thumb and forefinger, I apply pressure, squeezing them together until one of them cracks and splinters. That is the"loser," and I eat the inferior one immediately. The winner gets to go another round.

I have found that, in general, the brown and red M&Ms are tougher, and the newer blue ones are genetically inferior. I have hypothesized that the blue M&Ms as a race cannot survive long in the intense theatre of competition that is the modern candy and snack-food world.

Occasionally I will get a mutation, a candy that is misshapen, or pointier, or flatter than the rest. Almost invariably this proves to be a weakness, but on very rare occasions it gives the candy extra strength In this way, the species continues to adapt to its environment.

When I reach the end of the pack, I am left with one M&M, the strongest of the herd. Since it would make no sense to eat this one as well, I pack it neatly in an envelope and send it to:

M&M Mars, A Division of Mars, Inc.
Hackettstown, NJ
17840-1503 U.S.A.

along with a 3x5 card reading, "Please use this M&M for breeding purposes."

This week they wrote back to thank me, and sent me a coupon for a free 1/2 pound bag of plain M&Ms. I consider this "grant money." I have set aside the weekend for a grand tournament. From a field of hundreds, we will discover the True Champion. There can be only one."
