... is a bit of advice my grandmother (93 this Saturday) gave me.
I think if I was to be hit by a bus, the fact that my boxer-shorts were clean is pretty irrelavent. "Don't get caught dead with dirty underwear".
Anyway, this got me thinking. Axioms. Stuff we live by and say "Yeah, you know what you just did there? Don't do that."..
Here are some of mine:
* Never light incense-sticks to get rid of the smell of gas.
* Kids can reach anything, make sure that the handles of pans on the stove are as inward as possible.
* Never serve Spaghetti Bolognese if your date is going to wear white.
* Masturbation isn't a crime (I bet Jesus did it too)
Anyone want to add?
Defense: *plausable scenario #1*
Prosecution: *Plausable scenario #2*
Judge: Search your feelings for the truth.
Jury: Fucking hell, we're going to be here all night.
