    Lightbulb Thoughts Of The Day

    These aren't mine. Not sure if you guys have seen these before but I found them funny, considering most of them are true

    (Warning: Long list)

    I wish Google Maps had an “Avoid Ghetto” routing option.

    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can’t wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that’s not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

    I don’t understand the purpose of the line, “I don’t need to drink to have fun.” Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and sticks when they’ve invented the lighter?

    Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you’re going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction from which you came, you have to first do something like check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you’re crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.

    That’s enough, Nickelback.

    I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.

    The letters T and G are very close to each other on a keyboard. This recently became all too apparent to me and consequently I will never be ending a work email with the phrase “Regards” again.

    Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn’t work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all know how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards or FAQ’s. We just figured it out. Today’s kids are soft.

    There is a great need for sarcasm font.

    Sometimes, I’ll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the **** was going on when I first saw it.

    How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

    I think part of a best friend’s job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

    The only time I look forward to a red light is when I’m trying to finish a text.

    A recent study has shown that playing beer pong contributes to the spread of mono and the flu. Yeah, if you suck at it.

    Was learning cursive really necessary?

    LOL has gone from meaning, “laugh out loud” to “I have nothing else to say”.

    I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

    Answering the same letter three times or more in a row on a Scantron test is absolutely petrifying.

    My brother’s Municipal League baseball team is named the Stepdads. Seeing as none of the guys on the team are actual stepdads, I inquired about the name. He explained, “Cuz we beat you, and you hate us.” Classy, bro.

    How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear what they said?

    Every time I have to spell a word over the phone using ‘as in’ examples, I will undoubtedly draw a blank and sound like a complete idiot. Today I had to spell my boss’s last name to an attorney and said “Yes that’s G as in…(10 second lapse)..ummm…Goonies.”

    What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each other?

    While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and instinctively swerved to avoid it…thanks Mario Kart.

    MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

    Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

    I would like to officially coin the phrase ‘catching the swine flu’ to be used as a way to make fun of a friend for hooking up with an overweight woman. Example: “Dave caught the swine flu last night.”

    I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind of tired.

    Bad decisions make good stories

    Whenever I’m Facebook stalking someone and I find out that their profile is public I feel like a kid on Christmas morning who just got the Red Ryder BB gun that I always wanted. 546 pictures? Don’t mind if I do!

    If Carmen San Diego and Waldo ever got together, their offspring would probably just be completely invisible.

    You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you’ve made up your mind that you just aren’t doing anything productive for the rest of the day.

    Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don’t want to have to restart my collection.

    There’s no worse feeling than that millisecond you’re sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

    I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

    I hate being the one with the remote in a room full of people watching TV. There’s so much pressure. ‘I love this show, but will they judge me if I keep it on? I bet everyone is wishing we weren’t watching this. It’s only a matter of time before they all get up and leave the room. Will we still be friends after this?’

    While watching the Olympics, I find myself cheering equally for China and USA. No, I am not of Chinese descent, but I am fairly certain that when Chinese athletes don’t win, they are executed.

    When I meet a new girl, I’m terrified of mentioning something she hasn’t already told me but that I have learned from some light internet stalking.

    I like all of the music in my iTunes, except when it’s on shuffle, then I like about one in every fifteen songs in my iTunes.

    Why is a school zone 20 mph? That seems like the optimal cruising speed for pedophiles…

    As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists.

    Sometimes I’ll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

    It should probably be called Unplanned Parenthood.

    I think that if, years down the road when I’m trying to have a kid, I find out that I’m sterile, most of my disappointment will stem from the fact that I was not aware of my condition in college.

    Even if I knew your social security number, I wouldn’t know what do to with it.

    Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, hitting the G-spot, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I’d bet my ass everyone can find and push the Snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time every time…

    My 4-year old son asked me in the car the other day “Dad what would happen if you ran over a ninja?” How the hell do I respond to that?

    I wonder if cops ever get pissed off at the fact that everyone they drive behind obeys the speed limit.

    I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

    I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lites than Kay.

    The other night I ordered takeout, and when I looked in the bag, saw they had included four sets of plastic silverware. In other words, someone at the restaurant packed my order, took a second to think about it, and then estimate d that there must be at least four people eating to require such a large amount of food. Too bad I was eating by myself. There’s nothing like being made to feel like a fat bastard before dinner.

    I hadn't seen those before. Bit scary how true some of them are.

    A few members here have got this one down pat and without blinking an eye they switch sides and start arguing from the other side.

    "Bad decisions make good stories" has a nice sound to it.
    Entropy is not what
    it used to be.

    +1 for the meaning of LOL, Mario Kart, what comes after DVDs, iTunes shuffling & copy vs speed limit

    So many so true though

    gave up trying ages ago
    Amnesia International, remembering for those that can't.

    No trees were harmed in the making of this post but a few electrons were terribly inconvenienced.
