21.  You should never act on incomplete information unless you happen to be on fire.

Dont we always have incomplete information?

Or if we dont, when is it complete? (i wouldnt think its a nihilistic posture arguing for never doing anything?)

I could be wrong, but I think he means "don't act when you don't know everything you need to know about the situation."

This is some fucking Scripture, right here.
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.”
― Assata Shaku

I normally agree with #11, but I can think of an exception.  Namely, my boss, who approaches life with a form of naive empiricism which means, unless he directly sees something occuring, it didn't happen.  Regardless of the mountain of paperwork and signed statements from 20 different members of staff attesting to what is going on.

I fucking hate him.
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."
- R. Scott Bakker, The Darkness That Comes Before

41.  Weird pulls in more weird.

42.  If you've been married 9 times, maybe it's you.

43.  A day without 3D movies is like a day without root canal work.

44.  When someone says, "It's not the money", it's the money.

45.  It's entirely possible that you aren't the main character.  However, you should act as if you are, just in case.  If you're wearing a red shirt, though, just lie down and wait for the end.

46.  Order of death in horror movies:  The Black dude, the tramp, any Hispanics that are around, the partiers, the cop, everyone else.  The prude gets to live.  Like all things Hollywood, slasher flicks are morality plays.

47.  If at first you don't succeed, cover up all evidence that you ever tried, and blame the president.

48.  Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes right to the bone.

49.  My reality tunnel is different than yours.

50.  Don't fry bacon without a shirt on.

51.  Cosmopolitan Magazine is not found in the possession of happy women.

52.  Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than yourself.

53.  You can't fix stupid.

54.  If the cops and paramedics are throwing up, don't look.

55.  If you don't feel right, go to the fucking doctor.  Whatever horrible thing you think it might be isn't going to get better on its own, and it will probably get worse.

56.  If you MUST trust or believe in a politician, at least make sure you're using protection.

57.  The universe doesn't actually care if you don't look at things objectively.  The results will not reflect your opinions.

58.  Alfred Pennyworth was right.

59.  Never play pool with someone who is nicknamed after a city.

60.  You probably worry too much.

"Man, there's nothin' to do in this stupid town rope swing's busted, stinking cops always kicking me out of the park manager of the 7-11 always says "get off my curb you good for nothing" all the girls already know I'm a bad kisser so they don't come anywhere near me I don't know how many times I've been to TGIF a kid can eat an onion bloom only so many times bowling's boring, the skating rink's been taken over by 12 year olds there ain't no good movies out, blockbuster never has any good games in I don't want to play Bombad Racing, I mean what the heck is that? I'm sick of all my records and every time I walk into a record store, I forget what I want to get and their ain't nothing on TV, not a stupid thing! There ain't nothing to do 'cept take naps and wait patiently for death!"

@Trip: there's a sentiment amongst the "holy" Jebus-followers that "God will provide." this is a certain lackadaisicality that breeds enormously to little good effect here in US and A

Before there was a full-blown climate change denier faction, Mr. Rush actually cited that as his opposition to climate change legislation. Mega-dittos, sir, Mega-dittos.

I will not live under the tyrannical claw of #43. Except #18 is worth 7 #43's, so I guess the list still nets +6.

I can think of exactly one exception to #43. The Lion King 3D. Shit was awesome, visually. Layers and layers of beautifully-drawn wildlife on the savannah.
That being said, the majority of 3D movies are atrocious, and I generally don't go to movies for the visuals alone, so...

61.  "Team building exercises" are designed to make people that hate each other spend more time together.

62.  If someone's a complete asshole, there's no need to find out why.

63.  Your dog is a better person than you are.

64.  A psychophysiologist  by the name of Thomas Mulholland proved in 2006 that after only 30 seconds of watching TV, your brain produces more alpha waves, which indicate that you are in a heightened state of reception.  This may explain why some people still believe the news.

65.  If you are truly determined, nothing can stop you.  Except the laws of physics and irresponsible levels of police violence.

66.  The trick to writing is knowing when to stop.  There was only one story for The Blues Brothers, for example.  Some people should stop before they start.

67.  If you have to rationalize your actions, you are being a bad person.

68.  The lesser of two evils is still evil.

69.  Never draw on an inside straight.

70.  Getting mad can change the behavior of people, but not the behavior of equipment.

71.  Getting mad cannot, however, change peoples' capabilities.

72.  Being polite doesn't cost you a thing, under any circumstances.

73.  Never trust a smiling Englishman.

74.  Make an American mad, he'll slap sanctions on you.  Scare an American, and he'll try to kill you.

75.  The only difference between modern America and Ancient Rome is that America sits between two oceans.

76.  No matter how offended you are, Pi is still not 3 (I'm talking to you, Indiana).

77.  Homeschooling a child to avoid bullying is like taking a soldier out of basic training to avoid having him get yelled at.  Sure, he's happy NOW, but sooner or later, he's gonna get proper fucked.

78.  Get a population used to perpetual war, and you have a nation of slaves. 

79.  Stop being a pussy, and they'll stop fucking you.

80.  Three things that should be illegal:  a) golfing  b) Seatte c) The making of lists.

except I have no idea what this one means:

> 69.  Never draw on an inside straight.

could be either an engineering term, a poker term, or advice on how to make your clothes last longer in the washer?

It's a poker term.  If you have a 5,6,8, and 9, do not stay in looking to draw a 7, unless you are in the mood to give your money to someone like me.

I see. Myself I usually go with: Don't play poker for real (amounts of) money until you spend some time learning about the probabilities involved. Which should cover that.

If you can't count cards, don't play.

And playing poker for free is every bit as immoral as playing chess for money.
