    I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult. I have decided
    I would like to accept the responsibilities of an 8 year-old again.

    I want to go to McDonald's and think that it's a four star restaurant.

    I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make a sidewalk with

    I want to think M&Ms are better than money because you can eat them.

    I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a lemonade stand with my friends
    on a hot summer's day.

    I want to return to a time when life was simple, when all you knew were
    colors, multiplication tables, and nursery rhymes, but that didn't bother
    you, because you didn't know what you didn't know and you didn't care. All
    you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware of all the
    things that should make you worried or upset.

    I want to think the world is fair.

    That everyone is honest and good.

    I want to believe that anything is possible.

    I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly excited by
    the little things again.

    I want to live simple again.

    I don't want my day to consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork,
    depressing news, how to survive more days in the month than there is money
    in the bank, doctor bills, gossip, illness, and loss of loved ones.

    I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, a kind word, truth, justice,
    peace, dreams, the imagination, mankind, and making angels in the snow.

    So . . . here's my checkbook and my car keys, my credit card bills and my
    401K statements. I am officially resigning from adulthood.

    And if you want to discuss this further, you'll have to catch me first,

    ......"Tag! You're it."

    Pass this to someone and brighten their day by helping them remember the
    Simple Things in Life.

  3. The frightening truth is, I'm a nature and wildlife photographer
    largely because I still enjoy chasing bugs and playing in the water. The
    camera just gives me an excuse and makes me look less weird to anyone
    watching... ;-)

    However, I also find that I'm quite happy with maintaining my own
    bedtime and not eating my damn vegetables if I don't like them. And let's
    face it, even setting fire to things doesn't compare with sex.

    The secret is to recognize what you like, not what you miss. Pass
    *that* along. And occasionally hit someone with a water balloon, too.

  4. Agreed. I have no desire to go back. Life as a post-collegiate adult is
    too good. It seems far too easy sometimes. -Kevin

    Ah, but if you could go back, with the knowledge you have now, would

    thinking you are).

  6. Of course! - Anyone who says they wouldn't is crazy! - Knowing what I know
    now....I would get instant rich just from knowing which companies to buy
    stock in.....for example, I would sell several hundred thousand shares of
    Enron short when it hit 90....:^) Presto! - Instant millionaire! And boy, I
    sure would have fun with all those girl friends I missed the first time

    I was thinking more in terms of knowing how the world works and knowing
    what's important and what's not and how to read people better, and
    stuff like that. But, if you want to take it in that direction, you
    could also know which super bowl and world series teams to bet on
    before the season ever starts. How many people, in 1991, picked both
    the Twins and the Braves to win their pennants?

  8. Yes......And think of the good you could do for mankind.....Like, you could
    go back to 1960 and shoot Bill Gates..........

    I was thinking more like Kato Kaelin.

  10. Gates has done far more for mankind than Mother Theresa...that's why
    he's rich, dumbass...

    You should go back and deal with Ralph Nader instead.....

    No. To be young and wise to the ways of the world is to be crazy. I
    won't enjoy a moment of it.

    And even now, at 50, I still think that we just think that we know the
    way of the world, we will never really know it. At each point in our
    life we just think we know it, that's all.

    He's done much more _to_ mankind than _for_ mankind. As for Mother Theresa
    compared to Bill Gates, consider the story of the woman who Jesus held up
    for her generosity when she gave a single coin to the synagogue. Reason
    being, it was all she had. Considering this, Mother Theresa is far the more
    generous of the two, and has done more for mankind than Bill Gates will ever
    do in terms of role modeling an immense depth of character and sense of
    humanity for all the world to follow.

    But then, you're neither deep (leicaflexleicaflexleicaflex) nor humane
