1. Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

2. A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well.

3. He who laughs last, thinks slowest.

4. A day without sunshine is like, well, night.

5. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

6. Those who live by the sword get shot by those who don't .

7. Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

8. The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong .

9. It is said that if you line up all the cars in the world end-to-end, someone would be stupid enough to try to pass them.

10. If the shoe fits, get another one just like it.

11. The things that come to those that wait may be the things left by those who got there first. 12. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

13. Flashlight: A case for holding dead batteries.

14. The shin bone is a device for finding furniture.

    That was great Linda, I sure needed a laugh. I live by Murphy's law, now I have new ones to think about. But aren't they all so true?
    Thanks for the smile!

    At a quick glance Mama is pleased with her Fuzzies! I'll comment after some rest. I'm back and I'm pooped!

    Thanks MM and New M. I'd run out of things to shamelessly promote my Black Rosette. Go vote for Beth or me at the Romance Room run for the Oscars!!
