What are the five tools of life?

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby Mookie4ever » Thu Jul 15, 2004 8:05 am

I'll try to answer this one seriously.

It all depends on what your goals are. If your number one goal is to be happy. I would say:
1) health
2) intelligence
3) a sense of humour
4) patience
5) common sense

but when you talk about the most important tools of life, it's hard not to list duct tape as #1

i'm not trying to go all soft but i dont think there are any cats or tools of life.... its just how content you are with yourself and how you make others, people you care about feel.

but if you had to....

a.) chicks b.) weed would do the trick. :-b
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

The tools of life are:

1. Quality/Quantity of Mate(s)
Quality is more important than quantity.

2. Quality/Quantity of Good Drugs

Once minimum usage is met, quality is more important here, too

3. Good Health

This is needed in order to focus on tools #1 and #2.

4. Intelligence-

This is needed to control the balance between tools 1-3, since life would be extremely easy if all could be met.

5. Charisma/Interpersonal Skills

These tend to make life more easy and make people feel better about their tools.

Socrates actually used that line for the first time while on trial. I'm not sure what book Plato wrote that it was in, but that's where the line originated from. Good enough? :-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
