10. When shaking hands, grip firmly and look them in the eye.
11. Don’t let a wishbone grow where a backbone should be.
12. If you need music on the beach, you’re missing the point.
13. Carry two handkerchiefs. The one in your back pocket is for you. The one in your breast pocket is for her.
14. You marry the girl, you marry her family.

33. Always be respectful.

34. Eat with your mouth shut. Don't make noises when chewing and drinking.

35. Don't ever eat with your hands, unless you're having pizza, a hamburger or a hot dog.

36. Obey the rules. If you're going to break them, think of the consequences (positive and negative).

37. Put your eyes on the sky but keep your feet on the ground.

I'm not going to cut up a kebab, a taco...and I'm not going to use a knife and fork to eat sandwiches, or carrot and celery sticks at parties. In fact there is plenty of food out there that you can eat with your hands!

I mean, these aren't really funny.. one I try to stress to my son is to stand up for himself. Don't let others take advantage of you. 

 

That said, I am also more of a "Be a Man" mentality and "Be proud of being a Man."

Don’t wish for lesser challenges, strive to meet the greater ones

 

Don't judge yourself by others standards

 

Know your own value

 

Don't cause others discomfort just for your own benefit

 

Understand what context is

You exist.  You don't need to prove it to yourself or others by putting your entire life online.

 

That concert happened whether you filmed it or not.  Preferably not, because someone with better camera equipment probably did any way and it's now on youtube.  So just be in the moment and enjoy it.

 

Remember that how you present yourself online is a matter of record.

“When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons, what the hell am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!”
