  • I think I may be the only one who thinks this, but I really think it's time for people to start understanding geography. Seriously, people should just be forced to study a political map of the world for an hour a day until they get it. It shocks me how little people know about where things are in the world. Sometimes, when trying to drum up sympathy for troops abroad, a politician will say "Our boys are being sent to places the average American couldn't find on a map." Sadly, that is a understatement.
  • You are responsible for your own bad decisions. When you move in with a guy you've known for two months, buy your co-worker a cell phone plan and put your wayward uncle's car and insurance in your name...you get to clean up the mess.
  • -The reason certain links to certain pages cannot be displayed on Answerbag. -The idea people cannot determine you're pregnant via a modem. http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/64507 The fact there really isn't a need for a private message service on Answerbag, as these services can provide you with the ability to communicate privately with other Answerbag users: http://hotmail.com https://www.gmail.com/ http://www.aol.co.uk/?src=www.aol.com http://www.yahoo.com/ ....there are many more. -The fact homosexuals are NOT evil and unnatural. -The fact all Muslims do not want to blow you up. -The fact homeless people are not bums, and are in that situation generally through circumstances outside of their control. AND PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF OD, IF YOU FIND A PILL JUST TOSS IT IN THE BIN!!! Or take it to the pharmacist if you're feeling daring.
  • *Chew with your mouth closed. If I can hear you chew, barring the crunch of chips, etc, it's TOO LOUD. That's one of the most disgusting things on the planet. Also, gum. If I were president, gum would be outlawed and anyone who chewed it would be tortured. If I can hear you chewing gum... you should have your lips sewn shut. Cut it out already! This includes, slurping, smacking, clacking, and any other noise your mouth can make. It's even gross when you aren't eating, so just stop already. If your mouth is dry, get some water. So gross... *One negative rating does not mean you got "trolled". That just means someone downrated you. Get over it. *Just because you GOT trolled, that doesn't mean you have to ask WHY, mucking up our main page. In fact, it means you SHOULDN'T so the troll doesn't feel like he won. *People DON'T want to hear your music from your headphones. There's a reason they're for PERSONAL use. Turn it down please! *Not every woman likes it when you cat call and yell "Hey Baby!". No really, I promise. *Not every man is just a sex fiend and only thinks with their penis. They do occasionally have some good things to say! *You sexuality is not a choice. You can make choices BASED on your sexuality, but that doesn't mean you can choose who turns you on. You can choose who you sleep with, but only you know deep down inside that you like Betty more than Archie, or vice versa. *Not everyone with a turban is going to kill you. Muslims are similar to Buddhists in they believe in peace. The people you "fear" is a special group of people. Not everyone that looks like them is the same! *Answerbag is NOT MySpace, Yahoo! Personals, or GetMeLaid.com. Please do not treat it as such. *Answerbag is NOT about points. Yes, they exist and are useful but are not the main point of the site. *Your grammar is your face to the internet world. If you say things like "Wut do i do if i drap my kookey?" people are going to think you are a 6 year old with dyslexia. You don't have to be an English major, just put in some effort, PLEASE. Thanks. :) *Typing in all caps isn't going to get you an answer quicker, it's only going to make people annoyed, so stop. *There is no reason for duplicate questions. If the question you want to ask has already been asked, learn from the answers already given. Pretty simple. :) When you do ask it, you won't even get to keep those points anyway once they get merged with the original, so why bother? *When talking on your cell phone remember a few things. First, don't yell. The other person can hear you just fine if you speak at normal octaves. Also, I don't care about what Sally said to Susan or what Fred did at his girlfriend's house yesterday. And I ESPECIALLY don't want to hear the results from your doctor! Please, keep these things to when you aren't in public. *When you cough, or if you can when you sneeze, PLEASE COVER YOUR MOUTH. That's REALLY GROSS. Then, when you're done- wash your hands. It's really very simple. *And last for now, but certainly not least: Please, when driving, this is not the time for multitasking! Applying mascara/lipstick/makeup, drinking coffee, texting your BFF, reading the newspaper, emailing your clients- these are all things that need to be done while you're NOT DRIVING. What you should be doing instead is keeping your eyes on the road! No wonder there are so many accidents! This list will be edited as I see fit. Check back later for updates! :P
  • clicking chewing gum!!! I have to walk away when someone is making a clicking noise with the gum..
  • 1-The bible is not a reason to stop science 2-You're morals are not mine. Stop trying to push them on me 3-I sleep in the day time and live during the night, It's not you're business, get off it. those are the main ones.
  • More can be done by working together than by working against each other.
  • That your (possessive) is not the same as you're (you are). That their (possessive) is not the same as they're (they are), etc.
  • Republican and Democratic politicians only appear to be different, but deep down inside they're the same. Being gay is not a choice, it's only a choice to accept it and live honestly with yourself, and by the way, God does not "hate fags." Anyone "managing" a company should know how to do everything... and I do mean EVERYTHING. Any country that tells you "freedom isn't free" is not a free country. Auto traffic is a sign of a good economy, so stop complaining. There is no such thing as a non-capitalist society because all goods materials are capital.
  • Life is not fair. You're not the center of the universe. Sometimes it is your fault. You are responsible for your own life.
  • -Not all Muslims are terrorists. -Life is not fair. -There is no such thing as immortality. -People are not always nice all the time. -You shouldn't be happy all the time because when it finally hits you, it will be too late. -Don't brag. -Don't be stuck up.
  • Life is short. Don't spend it foolishly.
  • Slow drivers to the right lane. Put on turn signal at least 1/2 block before turning. Put your young children in a car seat. It's the law. Stop talking on the cell phone while driving. Look before you change lanes. Don't ride my bumper, I may need to stop. Stop runnung red lights. Sit up in the drivers seat so you can see the road. The revue mirror is for looking behind, not putting on make up. Turn music down enough to hear sirene. Pay attention, when it's green, GO!! Park the car when making out, somewhere besides the stop sign. When you to old to drive, Please admitt it, before someone gets hurt.
  • Just forget about whatever 'it' is, and SMILE for awhile! :-D
  • People need to learn to understand and respect that there are different opinions and we are all entitled to them. That said, people need to learn when to confront and when to walk away from conflict. This applies to the mental, emotional as well as physical.
  • Ever heard of live and let live?
  • You have to work for what you want.
  • - live life to the fullest - don't care what others think of you!! - look for the silver lining - ur parents won't always be there to bail you out grow up and start being responsible - ur responsible for your own actions
  • common sense
  • That you and I teach others how to treat us -- Like this picture + 5
  • 1) Apostrophes don't go in plural words except in a's or i's, otherwise it's as or is. Even CD's shouldn't have an apostrophe, it should be CDs. 2) Wrong answers SHOULD be downrated, even if they're not offensive. E.G. Q: What's 5-3? A: 1. This answer should be downrated and not get points for trying. 3) I was not being offensive, edgy, or angry. I was trying to be funny and you took it the wrong way. More will be added as they come to me.
  • That if you're going to drive an SUV like the rest of the wanna-be masses, you should be ABLE to DRIVE the DAMN thing! The F***ing things are designed to be driven off-road! So don't come to a complete stop when you have a clear shot and the right-away to make a slow 90degree angle turn(from the right side of the road for a left turn, or visa versa)like your closest loved one is having delicate brain surgery in the backseat. If that's too difficult for you, get a more maneuverable CAR! If you do that in a car, sell it and ride the bus or car-pool, but get the hell out of other peoples way!
  • This pertains to the U.S., it's on my profile page but it seemed to be a fitting answer for this question as well. ARTICLE I: You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything. ARTICLE II: You do not have the right to never be offended. This country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone -- not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc.; but the world is full of idiots, and probably always will be. ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful; do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy. ARTICLE IV: You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes. ARTICLE V: You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we're just not interested in public health care. ARTICLE VI: You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest of us want to see you fry in the electric chair. ARTICLE VII: You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat, or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don't be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still won't have the right to a big screen color TV or a life o f leisure. ARTICLE VIII: You do not have the right to a job. All of us sure want you to have a job, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful. ARTICLE IX: You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you have the right to PURSUE happiness, which by the way, is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an over abundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights. ARTICLE X: This is an English speaking country. We don't care where you are from, English is our language. Learn it or go back to wherever you came from! ARTICLE XI: You do not have the right to change our country's history or heritage. This country was founded on the belief in one true God. And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all ; with no fear of persecution. The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage and history, and if you are uncomfortable with it, TOUGH!
  • That it is OK for people to have differing opinions and beliefs. That tolerance is a excellent thing to practice.
  • That we all have much to learn. i know. I have learned much by reading the answers here. i wish i had time to comment on them all because they were all brilliant.
  • The Golden Rule. That we're all different. Putting other's down is a poor way to build yourself up. No matter how much money you make, what your job status is, where you came from, who your family is, or what kind of home you own.......you're not "better". And, you make yourself look like an idiot when you put yourself above someone.
  • Racism, homophobia, any form of discrimination. People waste so much time being scared that they can't just open there eyes and live a life of peace and acceptance. It drives me nuts!!
  • People at work: Please speak at a normal volume level, if the person is two feet away. Be aware that there are others who are trying to concentrate and meet deadlines. People in general: Everyone has a unique personality and view of life. If you don't get them, it doesn't mean that they are stupid, silly, or wrong, it means that they are just different from you. Everyone that is different from you is not a moron! Check-out clerks: I don't want to make friends for life, I just want to buy some paper towels and get on with life. Please don't initiate a long conversation or make lame comments about what I'm buying. Also, if there are other ppl in line, don't stand there and chit-chat with the current person you're waiting on. People at Target..etc...shopping in the aisle: If it's a crowded day, don't stand in the middle of the aisle and block it with your cart and yourself, leave enough room for others to pass thru. Whew!!! I feel better now. Thanks! :D
  • The government, media, and society lies to us to keep us in line. You go to university and learn the social sciences and this fact keeps popping up at you. It's a shame more people don't understand. We are being manipulated. This is no conspiracy theory. It's just to make life simple enough for even the dumbest. Kinda like Microsoftizing.
