Yeah...haven't heard anything from Rich yet. Maybe we'll get lucky when he's 15% retired and he'll have more time to discuss the really important issues....

Alright you two. Unfortunately I am honor-bound by the Hippocratic Oath not to discuss his any farther (someone could get hurt ):
I swear by Apollo, the healer, Asclepius, Hygieia, and Panacea, and I take to witness all the gods, all the goddesses, to keep according to my ability and my judgment, the following Oath and agreement: To consider dear to me, as my parents, him who taught me this art; to live in common with him and, if necessary, to share my goods with him...I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone....But I will preserve the purity of my life and my arts.
I will not cut for stone, even for patients in whom the disease is manifest; I will leave this operation to be performed by practitioners, specialists in this art.
In every house where I come I will enter only for the good of my patients, keeping myself far from all intentional ill-doing and all seduction and especially from the pleasures of love with women or with men, be they free or slaves.
...
If I keep this oath faithfully, may I enjoy my life and practice my art, respected by all men and in all times; but if I swerve from it or violate it, may the reverse be my lot.

2nd century AD Roman statue of Apollo depicting the god's attributes—the lyre and the snake Python

He's got some prominent attributes, all right.
Apollo is a very distant relative of mine, so I really shouldn't leer.

When the toilet is stuck (keeps running), don't open the lid and bang the flushing apparatus, no matter how easy DH made it look...

Make sure you press the brake pedal down before shifting out of "PARK" into "DRIVE".

OK, you got me. Yes, I know that now.

Confession: I didn't know it when I called DH telling him something was wrong with the transmission, b/c "It's stuck in park!"

DH loved that one.

Long ago, my parents bought a new car and couldn't figure out why Father could start it and Mother couldn't. This was the first car they had that wouldn't start unless the clutch was depressed.

If you're cutting onions and your eyes start to water, don't rub them.

If you've pulled your auto-trans car into a crosswalk hoping to turn left and then back up to get out of the crosswalk because there is too much traffic to make the turn before the light change.... double check the shifter before accelerating when you get a green light.

also,

When driving an automatic after months of driving a stick shift do remember not to bang the clutch pedal in the automatic to do a speed shift.

Leave sleeping dogs alone

Don't touch a snake, no matter how pretty it looks

Don't feed coyotes

Don't pet a grizzly

Having a cheetah as a pet is a BAD idea........

Some digital cameras will not power up if the card is missing and the door to the expansion card slot is open.
