Apparently you remember ten bad things that happen to you for each good thing....

I'm not sure that's entirely true.
I think for me it's pretty even - I remember good and bad events equally well I think.

What a balls up of a post. What I actually meant was

It takes 10 good things to cancel a bad thing.

It's not techically remembering....it's more a case of how you feel. If one good thing and one bad thing happens to you don't feel 'normal' - you feel bad (until nine more good things happen to finally 'cancel' the bad thing).

Make sense?

Ah... that sounds more right. I'll have to think about that idea tonight.

Now, learning things like that makes me happy.

To be honest I can't see it being 10 - sounds abit too 'round' for me......but I can easily see it being more than a 1:1 ratio as it were....

Thats why you "un-round" it to 9.3 or something, sounds so much better. For example: There are 19.4 sheep to every human in New Zealand. You believed it because the statistic looked professional, even though the real statistic is 20! :wink:

Well, I'll pitch in here.

1.) Driving my Honda Rancher through water up past the muffler.
2.) Manual transmissions.
3.) The fact that I quit my job in around two weeks for school!
4.) Forest Gump
5.) As a male, there are other things that make me happy.
6.) Finally, eternal bliss after death.

GO OZZY- Ozzfest is deemed Freefest this year.-Seriously who doesn't like Ozzy Osbourne?

Also, I love Spike TV, G4 TBS, my garage, spudfiles.
Favorite part of spike is the light night strip, lol
I also love free stuff I just ordered like 50 free things from here, all trusted retailers of course, everything from knives to coffee.

You listen to QR as well? Randy Rhoads used to be the guitar player for them back in the seventies when they formed the band.
For you people that don't know him Randy is the dude in my Avatar.
