...that Facebook is a great tool for staying in touch with the people that represent the best times of your life. It's also a pathetic and too frequent substitute for socializing.
...that you don't need to have a date to go out on New Year's eve. You do need to lower any expectations of meeting "the one" and having a perfect, passionate kiss at midnight that leads to an everlasting relationship. That would be like trying to win the lottery buying only one ticket, but instead of scoring the PowerBall millions, you'd likely get a two dollar scratch off.
...that gang-bangers who idolize the movie Scarface didn't stick around to see how it ended.
...that if we're really serious about turning the economy around, we need to stop buying anything that says "Made in China."
...that I'm sick of award shows and find them meaningless. But, if you want to give me one, I'll take it.

THE BS NEWS QUIZ OF THE DAY
Yesterday, I asked...
"Richard Lopez. a soldier from Fort Bragg, was pronounced dead from from wounds sustained in a bar fight. The fight was over what?"
18% said "The film "Top Gun""
- Sorry, Goose.
10% said "Obama being president"
- Clearly not, no one was shot.
No one thought it was "The Iraq War"
- We are all so over that.
72% got it right with "A Jimmy Buffet song on the jukebox"
According to The Rocky Mountain News, Richard Lopez, 37, of Fayetteville, N.C., a soldier from Fort Bragg died Monday morning in Denver from injuries suffered from a bar fight in Steamboat Springs on Friday night over a Jimmy Buffett song.
"The initial disagreement was about music being played on the jukebox," said Capt. Joel Rae with Steamboat Springs police.
"Richard Lopez and two other individuals put on the song, but two other individuals did not agree with it."
It was not known which Jimmy Buffett song was being played at the time, but the fight was taken outside the bar.
Here's the thing, no one should be beaten to death over a Jimmy Buffett song, unless it's Jimmy Buffett. And the song is Cheeseburger in Paradise.
