What you have learned is that you still don't know what you have learned.

That speaks of willingness to learn IMO.

Peace

Please don't make this a B-Day thread as it's not my intention. Rather just a reflection of a life that has existed for 50 yrs and a few things I need to get out there...
Thank you for your advices my friend,I still have so many years until I will reach that age,this why I will keep them in mind.

I don't know if they can apply at my age.

Happy Birthday to you my friend.

Great thread, Jude! S&F

But, I unfortunately I have eight more years of life under my belt and I can see things more clearly than you. Ya see, since coming to ATS I have learned soooo much, so please allow me to edit some of the things on your list.




1. Don't try to make everyone fit your perception of the norm. It won't work and would also be really boring.


Understand that NO one can fit your perception of the norm because everyone is either a Reptilian from the planet Ickibicki, a demon or a Hobbit.




2. Forget when possible and when not possible, forgive.


You can only remember what the government has fed you through the manipulation of MSM, and whatever you're breathing in from those chemtrails makes you passive and manageable. Forgiveness is assured because once our guns are taken away there'll be nothing left to fight with.




4. If someone smiles at you...return it. It's not always a sign of weirdness.


If someone smiles at you they're probably from the government and have been following you for years.



6. People aren't perfect...including you.


And that's why we now have drones flying overhead and watching our every move.



10. Be kind to the elderly, mentally disabled, children, the less fortunate and animals. They share your same dreams of peace, a warm home, full belly, love and in the last case, a good slipper to chew on.


Yes, be kind to them because the GMO's in their food (and in the slipper) is designed to shorten their lifespan.


You see! Thanks to ATS I am wiser than all of you, and I have come to grips with my alien abduction, and the fact that my father is a Sasquatch.

Happy birthday! I'll be joining your spot in the history books in 8 more years. Yikes!! Hard to believe how time flies eh?
Anyway, it's interesting you posted this thread because I was doing some reflecting too. Made a similar thread a little while ago.

Lovely idea 4 a post. I'm 54 and my greatest observations are:-

1) Their are only two constants in this life, the Universe and Human stupidity.

2) Not many who can spell gum and chew it at the same time.

Cheers.

Nope...too many for the cake. Just a big-ass one in the center.


Surprisingly no hang-over today...that's for tonight as I had to open the bakery today and hot ovens + alcohol DO NOT mix well in the morn.


Learned that the hard way (many times). Maybe that should have been on my list as well?


Peace
