If you do decide to discuss Politics and Religion online, at least some people will be ever-so-helpful. 😉

Facebook Post: "Pro Tip: if something would get you punched out, told off, or arrested in person, it is not part of acceptable online social discourse, either. Please don't be one of the people who whine about political correctness but are just miffed because they acted like an asshat and somebody said mean things to them in response."  Comment 1: "amen"  Comment 2: "Amen."  Comment 3: "Pro tip: if you're going to punch someone out, align the knuckles of your first two fingers with your wrist and elbow and strike the opponent's cheekbone with the middle knuckle while keeping your elbow raised. This way, you increase the effective power, reduce the likelihood of breaking a knuckle and in the case of a miss, you can continue the momentum with a strike of the elbow."

Bathroom etiquette from the gym…

Bathroom Rules: - Do not make eye contact when using the urinals.  - No talking to people in the stall.  - No running. Unless you accidentally clogged the toilet. Then get out before anyone sees it was you.  - No asking stall-mates for more toilet paper. If you run out just accept your fate and weep silently.  - Please keep poop gruns and other noises to a reasonable level.

Restroom Etiquette: A Social Primer for Men

     A few months ago, I was using a urinal in a public restroom, minding my business.  As I zipped and turned, some idiot, for reasons still unknown, swung a punch — and missed.  I quickly used the momentum of his failed blow to spin him and throw him down hard.  I held his face to floor for several minutes, all the while explaining the reason this was a bad idea.  Eventually, he said, “Uncle” and I pulled my knee from under his shoulder blade.
     With tears streaming down his face (which, considering his aggressive condition, may have been more to do with several minutes of close proximity to years of stale urine and industrial strength floor cleaner than actual pain), he proceeded to leave the establishment.
     Although he apologized to me and several other patrons for the trouble he’d caused, he did scream, “F#$* you all!  I’m never coming to this place again!” exactly one second before exiting the building.  This is expected behavior from an aggressive asshat.
     Apparently, said asshat had already caused a lot of problems.  Some of the regulars, who had observed the last portion of the short-lived melee, found the situation altogether hilarious.  It wasn’t long after that I was sitting at the bar (no one would find that shocking) drinking an on-the-House pitcher of beer.
     We laughed, discussed, and I was accepted as “part of the family.”  Eventually, the subject of our banter became “restroom etiquette.”

     Though we did not create this video (the fine folks at Zarathustra Studios did it, using The Sims 2Sim City 4 and some other cool stuff), many of these same subjects were touched upon…
