Wow, I so agree!! haha especially with the best friend deleting history after I die. and the folded fitted sheets, and the unplanned parenthood thing and the realizing your wrong. haha. sucks. ..


It recently occured to me.. while women only get better with age, we get wiser,and more self confident, and a beauty of it's own,and smarter... men just stay at 14-16 years of age, at most 18. 

What is the last thing people see/feel/think before dying?

What would jesus say if he were to come down here.. Considering he was jewish, I don't think he'd like the whole ham thing too much...

What would happen if we could bring back people from the dead, what would they say/think?

If the whole idea of "one true love" is really realistic.. or is it something as society we made up to feel like we know and what to expect out of life, whats considered the "norm" and inside the limits of socially acceptable. Whats wrong with loving many people, responsibly.. OR.. having more than one true love?.. maybe IT IS normal to fall in and out of love. Maybe thats what we are meant to really do. People grow, why should we limit ourselves because of another person? and shouldn't it be acceptable to grow apart? I think if we didn't have this societies idea of "one true love" then maybe people wouldn't be stuck in miserable situations, or feel bad for leaving them. And it would be more acceptable to fall out of love.

Why does Steve jobs try to torture us by releasing something cooler and newer and even more wicked awesome than before?..especially if you JUST got it?? :o

Adding leopard print/sparkle to anything makes it automatically more awesome.

LOL - I have a friend who is a practicing Wiccan.  Her mother still thinks she's part of the family church, and she does go occasionally to keep mom happy, even if she doesn't believe.  I'm under strict orders to remove all evidence of anything wiccan in the event of her death - before her mother arrives! 

My random thought. . .

If half my hair was going to fall out, shouldn't the grey ones have volunteered to go first?

Ladystardust24, you had it right the first time, we men remain 16 mentally most of the time. No mater how educated and mature seeming we"ll always do something silly from time to time. Especilly with our male friends. Sorry ladies, it is in our genes.  :rofl; :rofl; :rofl; :rofl;

As for random thoughts:

Do you think they have something dialysis on other planets? Providing other planets are populated.

Wonder if people on other plants ever wonder if there are people on other planets?

Did early humans ever realize they probably smelled?

I cried because I had no hat. Until I met a man who had no head. Not much of a talker, that guy.

OMFG = On my foreman grill

I SWEAR TO DRUNK I'M NOT GOD!!!

Tip for the kids: carry around a zip-lock bag of baking soda. It drives adults crazy.

I'd like to meet a guy named Art. I'd take him to a museum, hang him on the wall, criticize him, and leave.

Sad story short , she said no.

One bad thing about working for yourself is if you call in and say your grandmother died, you know you're just making it up.

I hate people who type like ThIs AlL tHe TiMe

Do these stairs go up or down?!!

A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.

Saying something over and over again doesn't make it true...unless, of course, you're saying, "I'm obnoxious and repetitive."

This sentence won't save you any money on car insurance.

I want to start a college course called Couch 101. It'll be a class that anybody can sit in on.

Time you enjoyed wasting was not wasted.

I didn't commit a crime... what I did was fail to comply with the law.

I want my kids to have the things in life that I never had when I was growing up. Things like beards and chest hair.

Ok, so blood is thicker than water, but it isn't nearly as refreshing after a tough basketball practice.

Give a man a fish, and he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he'll sit in a boat, get drunk, and pee off the port bow. Who's up for fishing?

Is gravity getting you down?

Everyone is paranoid. I'm certain.

Random Thoughts:

There are somethings we should never know.

But that ditch wasn't there when I was driving.

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts and minds of men?  I try not to think about it.

If you were on a train leaving New York traveling at 90 miles per hour and your brother was on a train leaving Los Angles traveling at 85 miles per hour, who was the first Preisdent of the Continental Congress?

I love this thread but my thoughts, though random, are rarely so profound.  Why don't I have two of JB's skillets and "The Shadow Knows".

This morning as I was hacking and blowing my  nose over and over while doing the obligatory New Year's Day laundry (have to start the year with everything clean) I had a thought.

Unlimited is the supply of snot and dryer lint... why can't someone come up with a way to make alternative feul of them?

Now that is lack of decorum I'd say.  Sorry.
