Admonition of the Moment
"We prefer our cornflakes of criticism with a bit more of the milk of human kindness."
--2002.08.29, on the Blender Board. I was trying to explain to "Inflatable Sushi" that while constructive criticism is welcome, he was being way too blunt about things in general.

'Net Lore of the Moment
The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.
The French eat a lot of fat and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.
The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.
The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.
The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.
CONCLUSION:
Eat and drink what you like.
Speaking English is apparently what kills you.
