Well, we are talking about 21 year olds today, so here goes.
You should be able to watch a black and white movie and enjoy it as a classic film and not 'an old movie'.
By 21, you should have figured out that being yourself is the coolest thing to be. I know I've enjoyed it (And I figured it out early).
Should know the difference between a classic(1965 Mustang) and a clunker(1988 Grand Am).
Clothes don't make the man, DVD collections do.
There's a time and a place for fart jokes.
The theory that spaghetti may very well be the perfect food.
(If married) How to look at a hot member of the opposite sex without moving your head.
How to avoid cops when your tag's expired.
How to cheat successfully at Monopoly.
Lastly, you should appreciate what your parents went through the last 21 years. It isn't as easy as it looked was it?
Hehe, yes some posts are DEFINITLY dated
Joseph Young, by the way, cells/pagers are the worst thing that can happen to a man, especially if they are issued from work!
As a man of 52, with only a couple of years of college, no cellphone, no pager, and no computer skills to speak of, I'm glad I can recognize sarcasm or irony when I see it.
The final paragraph of Joseph's post was the one I found most important. Without character, integrity, whatever one cares to call it, one is not a man regardless of how many cellphones, pagers, or advanced degrees one has.
By the age of 21, a man should know how to be honest with others and most of all with himself.
I agree Steve...by 21 a man should be able to tell when someone is talking with their tongue in their cheek. (Good post Joseph! )
Peter and Paul are not the same person, but they "work for the same guy." My understanding of the phrase is to move money from one part of a budget to another. Example: Living off of Top Roman noodles for a month so you can pay rent.
Pardon the somewhat off topic excursion, but my favorite quote in regards to what an individual should be able to do is :
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an
invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building,
write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone,
comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate,
act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem,
pitch manure, use a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight
efficiently and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
Robert Heinlen from The Notebook of Lazarus Long
I'm still working on this list.
Well guys, this thread was the inspiration for another thread, that I hope you will all take part in:
