Reading comics would rot your brain. Most of the biggest hit films in the past 10 years have been based upon those characters I read about back then.

Don't swallow the watermelon seeds or they will grow out your ears.

Don't go outside improperly dressed or you will catch a cold, the flu, your death.

Don't sit too close to the TV or you will go blind.

Don't play ............................................... or you will go blind.

"You won't always have a calculator in your pocket when you grow up!"

Was also told there wasn't any way I'd get a real job if I didn't get off that computer and learn a trade. Now I'm in one that doesn't have enough well trained employees and making bank from my experience.

Don't go outside in winter with wet hair or you'll catch cold. (It does freeze and that's sort of cool.)

If you eat enough of something, you'll get sick and you'll never want it again. (never managed to gorge that much on something intentionally, but I did come down with violent stomach flu after eating sausage pizza and can't stand the smell of it to this day)
