I like to look into the eyes during a handshake but can't stand having my hand crushed.
Could never understand the need to do so.

Slice, my man, don't teach the boy that.  A solitary, mostly celibate life in which you occasionally drag your dick through the gutter is no kind of life for a man.

Re: RULES TO TEACH YOUR SON

Things I have told my kids...

~ Life is always trade-offs.  You must give up something to get something.

~ You can do anything you want with your life but you can't do everything you want.  Choose wisely.

~ Don't unnecessarily complicate your life.

~ The two stupidest words in the English language are "Boat Loan".  Avoid debt whenever you can.

~ They key to happiness is gratitude. Be thankful.  It is impossible to feel gratitude and not also feel happiness.
