    Pot is a friend and I took his comment in the spirit it was intended. Which was, not literally. Why do you need these things explained to you?

    I guess my rule of thumb is, would this embarrass me or hurt someone if it came to light that I was talking about it with people on the internet?
    Whoa, apparently, I have no thumbs! I never use them to type so I hadn't even noticed until Tom brought it to light.

    Tom, some people like to relax by working in the garden or call themselves a do-it-yourself type and like fixing projects around the house. We all know you like to cook. Asking my previous unanswered question a different way, what type of productive things do you enjoy? Which ones are you like "no way" and find it best you have someone else take care of?

    I'm like Homer Simpson when it comes to home handyman work. I suck at it in a big, huge, awful way. Since I live in Arizona, 'gardening' is a little different here, but I pretty much suck at it too. Car care, home repair, lawn care, all that typical American man stuff, it doesn't interest me, so I suck at it. Or I suck at it, so it doesn't interest me. So yeah, I pay to have others do it for me.

    Also, lead by example. Live your life in a way that you would want them to emulate. If you want them to make good judgments, make good judgments yourself that they can see.
    I love this, Tom. Like, a lot. What was the hardest thing about parenting for you? (Or still is?)

    Irony: last night a few hours after I'd posted this (and after I'd already gone to bed) I got a call from my daughter. She had a flat tire. I had to go change it. Fortunately, that is a thing I can actually do myself.

    It has been said (though I have no idea why) that I may be a little impatient when helping them with their homework, and in particular math homework. so there's one: patience.

    I hate school recitals and that stuff. Choir, band, etc etc. I go (& still do - younger daugher plays trombone in the HS band) but if it's one of those poorly organized, late starting, pointlessly dragging on forever things, I might get a little cranky.

    "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)" is a rock song by Neil Young. Combined with its acoustic counterpart "My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)", it bookends Young's successful 1979 album Rust Never Sleeps. Inspired by proto-new wave group Devo, the rise of punk and what Young viewed as his own growing irrelevance, the song today crosses generations, inspiring admirers from punk to grunge and significantly revitalizing Young's then-faltering career. The song is about the alternatives of continuing to produce similar music ("to rust" or — in "My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)" — "to fade away") or to burn out, as John Lydon of the Sex Pistols might be considered to have done by abandoning his Johnny Rotten persona.



    A part of a lyric from the song, "it's better to burn out than to fade away," became infamous in modern rock after being quoted in Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's suicide note. Young later said that he was so shaken that he dedicated his 1994 album Sleeps with Angels to Cobain. Because of Cobain's suicide, in live concerts he now emphasizes the line "once you're gone you can't come back".

    Yeah so I thought I'd made the Neil Young connection obvious already, Ron.

    Beatles.

    Do you have any advice on how to get your kids up in the morning? (or is that your wife's work?). I'm actually having a problem with that, and I can't see bribing them every day until they're 18.

    You assume. Apparently not Tom judging by post Hydr1's post. I’m not asking how much money you make now but how much a year do you think you will need to actually retire when you do? Cr****

    The phrase “bucket list” has become very popular lately. What would be the antithesis of your bucket list? Of course remember they might be quoted on the board later. Cr***

    He's referencing this scene in a movie based on a Nick Hornby novel.



    Tom nailed the answer the way it was asked however.

    Tom, favorite movie adapted from a novel?

    My interpretation of Hydr1's post is different from yours. It differs as follows: Mine is right, and yours is wrong.

    I will need one hundred billion dollars to retire on. I live large.

    "Antithesis". You're asking me to provide a list of things I don't want to do before I die? I don't see how that question even makes sense. The list of things I don't want to do is infinite. I don't want to break my leg. I don't want to break my arm. I don't want to catch a cold. I don't want to go to a Coldplay concert. I don't want to be kicked in the genitals. I don't want to read a bad book or watch a bad movie. See? I'm wondering if you even know what 'antithesis' means.

    Earlier, you asked me why I seem so cranky. You're providing your own answer.
