Subject: Two observations on making insults and seeking longevity.
Date: Mon, 7 Aug 2000 09:57:41 -0700

Lately I have noticed comments being made on Cryonet which are usually only
found in grade school level altercations between smaller, less experienced
primates in our culture.

I am, of course, referring to insults.  Always a clear indication of a
failure of intellect and/or worldly experience.

Why do I say this?  Because of the following two observations usually
inculcated as wisdom by most primates before exiting kindergarten:

(1) Short temper = short life.

The failure to understand the above and to indulge in public temper tantrums
and personal insults does not negate the social reality.

If you are frustrated about other people and/or circumstances, welcome to

The prescription for potential longevity is to stop whining and GROW UP.

If you want to insure a short, violent life then make it a practice to
insult people.

Visit any emergency room or morgue for supporting evidence anytime.


(1) Controlled temper = potentially long life

The door is then open to see the possibly effective results of ALL your
other strategies for extending your life to include cryonics.

Otherwise, sooner or later, you will anger the wrong person at the wrong

Again use reality checking at your favorite hospital or funeral home.

Additional commentary:

I do not consider the above two listed observations debateable.

I consider them the absolute fundamentals of survival.

Further guidelines drawn from the culture:

"Don't spit in the wind.  Don't pull on Superman's cape.  Don't pull the
mask off the old Lone Ranger.  And don't mess around with Jim." - lyrics
from popular song.

"Never complain about life.  The door is always open to leave." - ancient
stoic philosopher.

And guess why those guidelines came into being?

(And if you REALLY don't understand why, you truly have my sympathies).

Final comment:

All the above is an intelligence test.

It is pass/fail.

Pick up your pencils.

Open your booklets.

Good luck.
