What do you think the Golden Rules are for today?

A kiss blown is a kiss wasted, the only kind of kiss is a kiss tasted.

I'm a woman. We don't say what we want, but we reserve the right to be pissed off if we don't get it. That's what makes us so fascinating and not just a LITTLE bit scary.

Posted:There's the traditional: Whoever has the gold, makes the rules.

A baker's dozen of my rules ("rules" is interpreted loosely here):

1. Everyone has a hidden agenda. Find out what they're selling.
2. That faintly nauseous feeling in your stomach isn't love.
3. You can't rebel by going against the system, because that is an action that takes place as part of the system. The only way to truly rebel is to leave the system entirely.
4. If you behave as if the world you want already exists, reality may well shape itself around you.
5. Don't pander to stupidity. It endangers your mortal soul.
6. Never use the phrase "it is clear" in an argument. If it were so clear, you wouldn't be arguing about it in the first place.
7. You can watch a pot boil. (I know; I tried.)
8. If, when you tally up your life, you've had no one who disliked you, you haven't lived as thoroughly as you ought to have. If you live passionately, someone will hate you for it.
9. Throw yourself into everything.
10. Repeat after me: "This is my life. This is my life. This is my life..."
11. What you can and should learn from something is not always what they claim they're trying to teach you.
12. Deserved, friendly arrogance is just about the sexiest thing in the world.
13. Always find out who financed the study.

E pluribus unum, baby.

Posted:Never hesitate to screw the system as it already does the same to you.

Don't steal: The government hates compatition

If you speak before you think you find out what you really thought. Unfortunatly people don't want to know what you really think. They'd rather be lied to.

Therefore: Little white lies are ok.

And the most important rule (for us men): Do not hesitate simply say: No you don't look fat in that. *Follow with something sweet or charming*

Posted:DOnt get out of the boat, absolutly goddamn right.

Well here are my personal rules for living like me:

1) If you like it, wear/do/sing it. If they dont, stuff it.

2) Never explain yourself, if they dont get it straight away, they never will.

3) You have to risk it everytime.

4) There is enough love in the world, its my responsability to spread it out more evenly, thats all.

5) Listen to all complaints patiently, hear the other side of the coin, THEN, and only then, can u interpret and help efficiently.

6) Sacrifice is its own reward. Patience is the greatest gift.

7) Obey ME at all times

Posted:i always thought the golden rule was "treat others as you would treat yourself"

But i'd like to say the golden rule Should be:

"treat others better than you would yourself"

cos some people arent very nice to themselves...
and the second part of the rule should be:

"love yourself, and appreciate others for their inner beauty."

and if they dont have any inner beauty and you've looked really really really hard and still cant find any, then go by rule three, which should be:

"Pick your friends wisely, stay with the people that love and respect you, and dont associate with those who are unkind."

that might be just my golden rules tho....

Currently on the right side up of the world.

take a long hard look at your girlfriend's mother /grandmother (or boyfriend's father/ grandfather ), cos thats a fair idea of what your partner will look, act, and smell like in the future years to come.

Posted:The ones I was taught by my mother...

1. Always wear clean panties (who doesn't, that is what I want to know??? )

2. Always close your bedroom door when you leave or at night (in case of fire, it contains it...and it really does work!..or in case something naughty is going on! )

3. Always treat others as you would like to be treated. The only problem with this is that there is no garuntee that you WILL get treated that way in return.

The rules according to my favorite grandma....

1. Try it, you might like it, and if you do, do it again.

2. Go for a ride, get out, as much as possible.

3. You only live once, so be young that whole time. But, this one has a clause....being youthful does not mean being irresponsible.

4. Don't let days pass without telling people you love that you care about them, because you never know when they or you will not be there to say it.

My Rules personal rules are variations of these. And I really do think they are all golden.

Golden rules

leave the toilet cover down - it's bad Fung Shui - your money will flow down an open loo.

always take ear plugs to a festie.

always be prepared - for anything.

and um yeah - clean pants..

and my dad's classic's..

Dance like it hurts; Love like you need money; Work like someone is watching.

Never criticize someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes. That way, when you DO criticize them, you are a mile away, and you have their shoes.
