    1. Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

    2. He who laughs last, thinks slowest.

    3. Those who live by the sword get shot by those who don't.

    4. Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

    5. The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong.

    6. The things that come to those who wait will be the things left by those who got there first.

    7. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he'll sit in a boat all day, drinking beer.

    8. The shin bone is a device for finding furniture in a dark room.

    9. A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well.

    10. When you go into court, you are putting yourself in the hands of 12 people who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty.

    If there's a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage is the one that will happen.

    If anything just can't go wrong, it will anyway.

    If everything seems to be going well, you've overlooked something.

    Those who know the least know it the loudest.

    Smile...tomorrow will be much worse.

    Nothing is as easy as it looks.

    Everything takes longer than you think.

    If you want something bad enough, chances are you won't get it.

    When you set out to do something, something else must be done first.

    The other line always moves faster.

    Whatever hits the fan will not be evenly distributed.

    Don't mess with Mrs. Murphy.:laugh:

    The one delivery you have in a huge sub-division will always be the last house at the end of that development without a doubt.... BC (after Ga.Tech stomped the Crying Irish it should be GTFan)

    The light you see at the end of the tunnel just might be a train coming at you:w00t:.

    When you arrive at an apartment complex the heaviest packages are always on the third floor....and most times no one is home.
