My future favorite site.

My future favorite site.

I know that it’s only Friday, but I don’t have any good post fodder for tonight. The following post is a link to what will be my most vary favorite place to loiter – a site filled with tidbits: Rulesofthumb.org

This is a screenshot. Move along, folks.

How can I not love a site that has things like, “THE GARAGE SALE RULE
One out of five items costing under $75 that you buy at a garage sale will end up in your garage sale within the next 1.5 years.
” or “When starting out, raise the same breed of cattle as your neighbors. Specialize later, when you have experience.” or “People are more likely to remember you if you always wear the same outfit.” (That last one is a keeper. Tell me the last time you didn’t recognize the pope.)

I haven’t had time to really sit down and read through some pages yet. If I were clearer-headed, I might have a few rules of thumb to add on my own. One I have passed on from my student teaching days is “Never cut through just one sheet of paper.”

    I 3rd that! The Pope…..HAHAHA!

    And LOVE the site! I’ve already spent a good amount of time reading.

    The only rule of thumb I can think of is: Never let a friend convince you to do a perm on just the top of your head. You will look like you’re wearing a Russian ushanka.

    My internet was down at school this morning 🙁
    It’s up now, but I have class. I was just reading quickly, but you’re saying we should dress like the pope from now on?
