Life Lesson Learned at 11: If you want to rabbit-proof something, then put it in a vault, because there is almost no-where that a rabbit cannot vault or climb.

Lesson learned at age 4: Never steal the vicar's expensive Irish Sporthorse Stallion to go for a ride. You will fall and break an arm and you WILL GET CAUGHT.

I've learned not to read this thread while I'm at work - it's too difficult to muffle laughter in a bank.

A peanut butter sandwich in the shower? Ewwww.

I've learned that no matter how good you are at cards, never go into a game of crazy eights where the loser has to eat the biggest bee you've ever seen. (It took me 10 minutes to work up the courage. The crowd of hotel goers that gathered to watch didn't help matters.)

ALWAYS brush your hand across the back of your skirt before leaving the ladies' room in case your hem is caught in the waistband of your pantyhose. Shocked Shocked

If you have a new dog and she isn't housetrained, don't walk around barefoot.

Tin's first post still wins this thread. XD

Knives are not symmetrical. They have an upper side, and a lower side. One is sharp, one isn't. Don't get them confused. >_>

Fire is hot and highschool boys can be incurably stupid with regards to it.

Life Lesson Learned at 22: Never trust anyone bearing both takoyaki and a smile - chances are it is the dreadfully spicy kind, and you will regret it, and down a beaker of YOGHURT in an attempt to ward off the spicyness.

Life Lesson learned just a minute ago:

When trying to go to bed early, never boot up your computer "just to check email." You'll invariably continue with, "Well, I just check the forum... well, maybe Vampirates uploaded... well, I might as well check everything else..."



If you give a girl a laptop, she will want to check the forum.
If you let her check the forum, she'll probably want to post a reply...

Learned at age 9: If you have a shiny red canoe, everyone else will want one too.

Learned at age 15: If you get too close to the geese, they will attack you. Unless you have a big stick and chase them with it.

Learned at age 7: Chickens are stupid and suicidal, but fun to chase.

Learned on this road trip: it's a good idea to give your chosen vehicle a solid inspection before you leave. having your alternator go out and leave you in the middle of nowhere Missouri at 4am when it's like three degrees out... bleh. Oh well, almost done for the day. I miss talking to everybody from the forums! :\

Life lesson learned...whenever.

You. Can. Not. Fly.

Do not listen to what your older brothers tell you. You cannot fly and leaping of the top of the barn will not help you fly. In fact, it could indeed break one of your 'wings.'

Yes, finding out you can't fly certainly is a downer.

It's always better to test these theories from the ground ^_^

Life lesson learned ??? - If you bruise something go and get an x-ray, you don't feel enough pain to tell if it's broken or not >_<.
