Hahahaha - love it. It's actually all sound advice! Except for the part where it says I don't need TV

My fave:
4. Thou shalt ignore the Joneses.

OK, about the TV part. I must confess that I have an obsession with the History Channel, NatGeo, CNBC, Discovery, and History International. Can I really find a place online that would allow me to stream content from those channels? If so, goodbye cable!

For someone who just had a Catscan or MRI, and was told they only had but a year to live, will kick themselves for canceling those credit cards!

But at least they can look at these commandments and have a few good, remaining laughs, intermingled by the cries and sobs over the idea they'll never live long enough to collect their first SS check!

And for those that intuitively believe Planet Earth is about to take its last, long breath, will laugh right alone with them!
