I'm sure all want to increase their knowledge of the universe, so here goes.

Things you should have learned by now

Things you should have learned by the time you have reached Middle age.

1. If you're too open-minded, your brains will fall out.

2. Don't worry about what people think, they don't do it very often.

3. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian, any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

4. Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

5. Wherever you go, there you are.

6. My idea of housework is to sweep the room with a glance.

7. Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

8. It is easier to get forgiveness than permission.

9. For every action, there is an equal and opposite government program.

10. A conscience is what hurts when all of your other parts feel so good.

11. Eat well, stay fit, die anyway.

12. Men are from earth. Women are from earth. Deal with it.

13. No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes.

14. A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand.

15. Opportunities always look bigger going than coming.

16. Junk is something you've kept for years and throw away three weeks before you need it.

17. There is always one more imbecile than you counted on.

18. Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.

19. Someone who thinks logically, provides a nice contrast to the real world.

20. If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never tried before.

21. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

22. If you look like your passport picture, you probably need the trip.

23. Bills travel through the mail at twice the speed of checks.

24. Middle age is when broadness of the mind and narrowness of the waist change places.

25. By the time you can make ends meet, they move the ends.

26. Thou shalt not weigh more than thy refrigerator.

27. It ain't the jeans that make your butt look fat

28. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, & never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings."

29. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

30. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

31. You should not confuse your career with your life.

32. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

33. Never lick a steak knife.

34. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.

35. 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.

36. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven.

37. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.

37. A person, who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person. (This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.)

38. Your friends love you anyway.

"It's so long since I've had sex, I've forgotten who ties up whom." Joan Rivers.

"Sex is one of the most wholesome, beautiful and natural experiences that money can buy." Steve Martin.

"My wife is a sex object. Everytime I ask for sex, she objects." Les Dawson.

I can't say I was a big fan of the Lil barber set----

I would however like to order the "Ginsu Boomerang" if you can hook me up...

I am willing to trade my string collection, partially chewed gum collection and my latest Bazooka Joke for it.

Those are funny. As far as the deep south, those things (with the exception of "y'all) are prevalent in rural parts only. Number 4 sounds like the Walton family (The TV show, not the family that owns Walmart).

Default Murphy's law on Nurses

When you need the money, your shift is cancelled; when you have a weekend planned, you have to do overtime.
Realizing the patient you've just injected has a serious infection causes you to stab yourself with the used needle.
A 500 pound patient needs all care, while your 80 pound patient needs a finger dressing ... and your colleague has a "bad back."
It's you're first night shift for three years. And it's a full moon.
You're doing the "Only 27 more minutes of the shift from hell happy-dance", only to turn around to see your supervisor standing there.
In a critical situation, the most highly qualified clinician will offer the most advice and the least support.
The absurdity of the suggestion is directly proportional to the distance from the bedside.
As soon as you finish a thirty minute dressing the doctor will come in, and take a look at the wound.
The disoriented patient always comes from a Nursing Home whose beautiful paperwork has no phone number on it.
Your nose will itch the very moment your gloved hands get contaminated with bodily fluids.
The patient who has been dying all night finally meets his maker 12.5 minutes before shift change.
You walk out of a patient's room after you've asked them if they need anything: they will put the call bell on as you are about three quarters the way down the hall.
The patient furthest away from the nurses' station rings the call bell more often than the patient nearest to the nurses' station.
The doctor with the worst handwriting and most original use of the English Language will be responsible for your most critical patient.
You always remember "just one more thing" you need after you've gowned, gloved, and masked and gone into that isolation room.
The correct depth of compression in adult CPR is a bit less than the depth you just reached when you broke those ribs.
When you cancel extra staff because it's so quiet, you are guaranteed a rash of admissions.
If you wear a new white uniform, expect to be thrown up on.
Corollary: Residents always poop on your brand new shoes.
When management smiles at you, be very, very afraid ...
Staffing will gladly send you three aides--but you have to float two of your RNs.
As soon as you discontinue the IV line, more fluids will be ordered.
Mandatory meetings are always scheduled after you've had the night from hell and just want to go home to bed.
You always forget what it was you wanted after you get to the supply room. You always remember when you get back to the other end ...
Doctors only ask your name when the patient isn't doing well.
Success occurs when no one is looking, failure occurs when the boss is watching.
As soon as you've ordered the pizzas, 25 patients show up at the ER registration desk along with three ambulances all with cardiac arrests!
For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism.
Ten seconds after you have finished giving a complete bed bath and changing the bed, the patient has a giant code brown.
If a patient needs four pills, the packet will contain three.
Your buddies who were reading the paper at the nurses' desk a minute ago always disappear when you need help ...
Expect to get your pay raise the same day the hospital raises the parking rates (and other charges)
The better job you do, the more work you can expect to be handed ...
The amount of clean linen available is inversely proportional to your immediate needs.
The more confused and impulsive a patient is, the less chance there is for a family member or friend to sit with the patient.
The perfect nurse for the job will apply the day after that post is filled by some semi qualified idiot.
If only one solution can be found for a problem, then it is usually a stupid solution.
When the nurse on the preceding shift has surrounded the patient with absorbent pads, the code brown will hit every sheet and miss every pad.
Rest assured that when you are in a hurry, the nurse's notes have not been written.
When you are starting an IV on an uncooperative patient, or dealing with a huge code brown, there is a phone call for you and it's that crabby physician that you have been paging all morning.
Fire drills always occur on your day from hell
The first person in line when the clinic opens will not require urgent care. The sickest person will arrive 5 minutes before closing: "I thought I'd feel better"
The Nursing Catch-22:
If you're running around horribly busy, you're unorganized and need to prioritize, but if you're not running around horribly busy, you're lazy and need to find more work to do.
You do the "Just discharged the Patient from Hell" dance only to turn around and find the Consultant Neuro-Psychiatrist looking at you like you're their next patient.

Last thing you want to hear a doctor say is 'whoops'
