6.The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.
7.You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight savings time.
8.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.
9.There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven.
