More pot stirring…

more stirring the potin the spirit of full disclosure, here are some things that, frankly, should be believed by everybody:

  • waffles are the perfect food.
  • we should all listen to a little reggae music from time to time.
  • joakim noah should really change that hair style.
  • just like bell bottoms and puka shell necklaces, men’s short shorts will make a comeback.
  • middle school girls are the most unknown and confusing people group on the planet.
  • no matter what character kiefer sutherland plays for the rest of his life, he will always be jack bauer.
  • the 1982 dodge 4×4 short-bed pick up was the greatest truck ever built.  ever.
  • mustard will be the condiment of heaven.
  • the DVR is the greatest technological creation in my lifetime.
  • unless there is a seriously misshaped melon, every dude should shave his head…at least once in his adult years.  (and you may never go back!)
  • the best sandwich in lewisville is the #1 pepe…at jimmy john’s.  applewood smoked ham and provolone…simple, understated greatness.
  • the national league should never…ever…adopt the designated hitter.
  • the BCS should be nuked.
  • roller coasters should be outlawed.
  • the college baseball world series is america’s best sporting event.
  • the money people spend on lavish wedding ceremonies could be spent more wisely.  lots more wisely.
  • every man should own a sawz-all.
  • good marriages don’t happen by accident.
  • little boys with long hair will never go out of style.
  • the cost of going to the movies is ridiculous.
  • single moms have the hardest job on earth.
  • bowling is a vastly superior form of recreational activity than golf, shooting guns in a firing range, and cross-stitching.
  • texting is better than talking on the phone.
  • people should be more honest when they are asked, “what’s up?” or “how are you?”…especially on sunday mornings.
  • everything is better with cheese.  unless you’re lactose intolerant.  (you made it, lindsey!)

what would you add?

  1. Things I believe;

    There is no more perfect end to a day than watching the sunset from just about any beach on the west coast

    I’m pretty sure Mana was Krispy Kreme original glazed donuts.

    The perfect love next to God’s comes from a dog.

    Stephen King’s The Stand is the best novel written in the my generation.

    Field of Dreams is the best movie ever. Ever.

    The Natural is a close second.

    Carlos Santana is the greatest guitarist in the history of ever.

    Braum’s Rocky Road ice cream is ridiculously great. (Ask them to make you a Rocky Road Milk Shake with a short shot of Chocolate Syrup and make it thick and eat it with a spoon.). You will thank me for it.

    Zion national park in southern Utah is the greatest example of God’s creation.

    And lastly…

    My wife is the most amazing woman and the perfect example of God’s grace. No really!

  2. I was just thinking about your thinking and while I agree with you on some, I vehemently oppose your position on others. For example:

    Reggae: anyone except Bob Marley. He was a pretty despicable human.

    Some people should NEVER shave their heads. I am one of them.

    The College World Series is great but the NCAA Basketball Tournament is the best sporting event ever.

    Nothing is better than making a 3 shot grouping 600 yards downrange with a Win Mag 300 ( The weapon of choice for the Navy SEALS). Not even Bowling
