    Opinions, 2013

    1) Imagine Red Hot Pawn without the ladies. Ouch! Though close competition and camaraderie with guys are fantastic I, for one, much prefer flowing smiles and understated perfume to locker room bravado and liniment; 2) People who know better, all too often, find themselves talking at each other rather than to or with each other. What a colossal shame to miss out on fleeting opportunities for rapport and intimacy which (if not seized) are lost forever; 3) Leeches, Vacuum Cleaners and the 2013 Fiscal Cliff suck!; 4) One of the greatest of all human fears is the fear of being found out. And, believe it or not, best place to stash secrets and skeletons is prominently in a public place. That's why excessive posing; clowning around; distractive body language, nervously looking to the left and right, are so common; 5) Human nature being what it is, people often criticize shortcomings and faults in others which are, in fact, shortcomings and faults of their own; 6) Among the most memorable words ever spoken is Pushkin's sententious observation, "How do I know what I think until I see what I write?"; and 7) Life is an incredible layover between the womb and eternity.

    Few of yours?

    I like films where ladies are minimal, the good the bad and the ugly for example, its
    not a macho thing, i dunno, cigar smoking and tobacco chewin ladies are not that
    appealing. It appears to me that there has been a kind of role reversal, take Captain
    Jack Sparrow as an example, most effeminate pirate evah and in contrast, his
    counterpart Penelope Cruz was way more macho, not content unless she was slashing
    every poor sea going fellow in sight with the edge of her sword.

    At the beginning, people are only afraid to look like a fool. But it's a false fear. Real fear is that of death. When they enter certain age, they only want to live for ever. In the meantime - whilst they still can feel wind in the hair - they think they can change something...

    Women - both in film and real life - have only one task: to be pretty. There is a rule, no - there is a law for women:::::

    ...........- Ladies, be good if you want, be smart if you can, but pretty - that you absolutely must be.

    /said by Russian cosmetologist, an old woman, refugee from October Revolution; noted down in Belgrade 1929./

    Its often good to try new things
    but
    be loyal to the things you like.

    That which doesn't kill you makes you stronger
    unless
    it damages you permanently.

    Money doesn't buy happiness
    although
    neither does poverty.

    There are too many people, and that is the reason for most of our problems.
    We are a plague on mother earth, and we'll probably spread the disease throughout the solar system and then the galaxy and then the universe. Hopefully before then we'll mutate into something less harmful.

    Life sucks and then you die,
    but
    coffee is good.

    Trusting in folks is a bad idea,
    but
    we have to do it anyway.

    Buy local! Avoid Martian products.

    Eat, drink and be merry
    It's so simple, it may sound scary,
    Always try to maintain good health
    Because without it, there's no point in wealth
    Triumph over pain, and live through the hurt
    Because in the end, the destination, is 6 feet in the dirt.

    Atheism is a non-prophet organization.

    8) E4... E5 and D4... D5 opening moves are overrated. Flank attacks and defenses have merit and, also, hold appeal.

    its the equivalent of instead of climbing to the precipice of the mountainous region, sneaking around the side 🙂

    If at first you DO succeed, try to hide your astonishment.

    Don't marry for money - you can borrow it cheaper.

    Never underestimate the courage of the French - it was they who discovered snails are edible.

    One of the problems of having an hour-glass figure is that the sands of time always end up in the lower half.

    No two people are alike, and chances are, both of them are glad of it.

    The 3-day weekend was created because it's impossible to cram all the bad weather into 2 days.

    (These were not my original opinions, but just sent to me by my old school chum).

    8) Castling early and often is underrated.

    The search function won't catch today's posts unless you search through tomorrow. Seems a bit odd, in my >opinion<.
