A few words about knowledge

"The only source of knowledge, is experience"
That's an Albert Einstein quote. It means that, the more time you've spent in this world, the more you should have learned. With every passing moment, one must achieve new knowledge, no matter how important or silly you might think it is you are learning. There's this really cool zombie movie in which one character says to another that every useless talent one has will turn out to be useful at one point in their lives. Of course, the characters that didn't get their brains sucked by zombies in that movie, escaped using some of their useless talents. But even though that was fiction, what they said was a fact... or at least I like to think so, it makes my existance a little more fun. This is a cool way of thinking, knowing that everything we may know, will turn out to be useful at one point, meaning that maybe we are all part of a bigger plan or at least a bunch of characters in some omniscient and omnipotent author's exciting plot. That said, here's a list of things you should know by now, keeping in mind you are at least around the age of the guy writing this blog:

1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
2. Don't worry about what people think of you, they don't do it very often.
3. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian anymore than standing in a garage makes you a car.
4. Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.
5. If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never tried before.
6. Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.
7. It is easier to get forgiveness than permission.
8. For every action, there is an equal and opposite government program.
9. If you look like your passport picture, you probably need the trip.
10. A person, who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person.

11. A conscience is what hurts when all of your other parts feel so good.
13. Eat well, stay fit, die anyway.
14. Men are from earth. Women are from earth. No matter what a book tells you.
15. Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the
Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.
16. A balanced diet is a burguer in each hand.
17. Middle age is when broadness of the mind and narrowness of the waist change places.
18. Opportunities always look bigger going than coming.
19. Junk is something you've kept for years and throw away three weeks before you need it.
20. There is always one more imbecile than you counted on.
21. Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognise a mistake when you make it again.
22. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.

23. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is around age eleven.
24. Someone who thinks logically provides a nice contrast to the real world.
25. It's not the jeans that make your ass look fat.
26. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings".
27. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness".
28. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.
29. You should not confuse your career with your life.
30. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.
31. Never lick a steak knife.
32. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.
33. Your friends love you anyway.
