    What one piece of advice from your grandparents has been the most beneficial to you? Mine would be "Peace is made of steel".

    Shit in one hand, and 'want' in the other and see which one fills up first.

    i used to ask so many questions when i was little esp about the native american ways. i always asked "why?" my grandpa always said "...that's the way the cookie crumbles." there are some things you must do and not ask questions. i suppose when he didn't really know what to say, he just said that because it was simpler, and i probably wouldn't have understood anyway.

    so we'd always say it to each other randomly and start laughing. :biggrin1:

    Grandpa told me that I would know when I'd met the girl I would marry because every time I saw her I'd get a hardon.

    I should have married several hundred women by now.

    "Just be yourself. That's all that should matter in this world."

    At the time, it was really sweet to hear.

    My grandma told me never to eat yellow snow. I have followed this advice religiously and am still a registered Democrat.

    You know what your problem is? You walk around all day with your butt on your shoulders! (my grandmother told that to my aunt).

    No, but it resulted in her having neck problems.



    Damn! Can you turn the dress off?
