"Twenty-Five Rules to Live By"

Here I go again, finding more ways to use of megabytes, but hopefully provide something to think about, or at the least something to smile about.  These were actually sent to me by someone who I am sure received them as well, as part of a pass this on to 10 of your friends and you will meet the person of your dreams and become wealthy; otherwise if you don't, no one will really ever know, or care emails.  As always, if you have something to add to the list please forward it to me and I will add it to the list, the number "25" is not set in concrete, as you can already see.
