You are saying that the only way to gain knowledge is through experience and that is false.

Well I am saying you act like child as I did and it bloody HURTS. First time in 25 years, maybe more, I have lost my temper and hit something. Like an idiot it was the big a** grinder. It is not like I reasoned it out but in hind site I would have thought that plastic lens would have broken or maybe the top of the doser folded in. Nope two bones in my hand.

OUCH! You didn't state that you were documenting an historical, biographical event.

I was commenting on the sig line as the message had little content..

I will add one of my own: "Don't get mad. Get even."

W.C. Fields said, when speaking to a child in a movie about to toss a brickbat at someone, "Wait! Count to ten...  " the actress counts to ten slowly and calms down, and W.C. says, "Now throw it. You've got better aim."

And on a golf course I said to a partner at the end of a round, "The only two good balls I hit all day was when I stepped on a rake in a sandtrap."

LOL!

I was trying to be cheeky posted that and sort of making fun of my dumb butt. Of course it was the only person in the world that can get that mad. As they say it is fine line between love and hate and the wife was blurring the line. We both laughed about the stupidity of the thing which helped the work through the core of the problem.

So the guy comes home from his golf outing and knocks on the door. When his wife opens the door he punches her right in the mouth. When she regains her composure she asks "What did you do that for?" to which he replies "I have been hitting everything fat all day!". Queue the rim shot

I had a mechanic friend years ago who broke his hand. He said his wrench slipped while working on an engine...later on he fessed up it was a wall. I suspect you're glad you didn't ruin your grinder. I wish you a speedy recovery!

I take my wife for a long drive every Saturday.. but she keeps finding her way home.

The psychologist said that for my wife and I to have a better relationship we have to start having sex more often.. now we're NEVER going to see each other.

My wife cut me down to having sex once a week. I don't feel bad. A couple of other guys she cut off completely.
