Homer: How is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive?
Marge: My name is Marge Simpson and I have an idea. It may sound a little boring at first.
Mayor Quimby: Chat away. I’ll just amuse myself with some pornographic playing cards.
Marge: Grandpa, are you sitting on the apple pie?
Grandpa: I sure hope so…
Ralph (to a wolf): Will you be my mommy? You smell like dead bunnies.
Homer: Bart, with $10,000, we’d be millionaires! We could buy all kinds of useful things like…love!

Come on really. Do you have to make your truck a lowrider? Maybe do it to an older mazda pickup truck or a really old ford or chev. But a newer model dualley. I don’t know what to say about what I saw yesterday and on my way home from work. There it was a Dual wheel heavy duty truck that was dropped. It was dropped by at least 4 inches. To me it don’t make much sense to do this. Most people take there trucks and put a lift kit on them.
What do you think? Would you lower your heavy duty truck? Would you Lower any truck? WTF?

Deep fry 3 or 4 rings at a time cooking them for at least 3 minutes or until golden brown. Place on paper towel to remove excess grease, repeat for remaining rings. sprinkle with seasoning salt and enjoy.
I can probably speak for most people when I say I hate driving in the winter. Not only do you have to deal with snow, ice, scraping and warming up the car you have to deal with the idiots on the road. We were hit with a lot of snow and freezing temperatures and it threw everyone off. Unfortunately, life doesn’t stop for the weather so people still had to go to work and to the grocery store. Well I’ll tell you I have never been more frustrated in parking lots then I have been the past month.
Lets get a couple of things straight. Number one people can’t park in general. So throw snow into the mix and what do you get? Parking lines that you can’t see. So now you have people parking on angles when it’s straight or people taking up two spots instead of one. Another thing that annoys me is when you come back to your car only to find out you can’t get in it because some idiot decides that he doesn’t need to leave you any space to get into your car so you either have to crawl in through the passenger side or stand there and wait.
Another thing that really gets to me is people who are impatient. Now I understand people with small kids are just trying to do regular errands like everyone else and that they are probably tired but I think that is no excuse for being impatient and rude.
Picture this you are in the parking lot and just finished loading the last of your groceries into the car. When a woman decides to pull up on your side of the vehicle in one of the MANY parking spots available. This was a regular spot it wasn’t close to the store and it wasn’t one of those family spots either. So she sees that your trunk has been closed and your cart is gone. It’s safe to say that you are probably going to get in your car and pull out. Well instead of waiting the one minute it would take you to get into your car and leave she decides that she’s going to get out of her car and block your access with her door as she takes her small child out of the car seat while you stand there looking at her as she fumbles for 5 minutes. Now the polite thing to do would have been for her to just sit in her warm car and let you get into your car. Now some of you may not care but that really got on my nerves. Like why can’t people just wait for one minute or park properly because guaranteed they would be just as pissed off if they were in that situation.
Homer: I’m normally not a praying man, but if you’re up there, please save me Superman.
Lisa: I’m an ugmo
Homer: Now, that’s not true. You’re cute as a bug’s ear.
Lisa: Father’s have to say that little stuff.
Homer: Dad, am I cute as a bug’s ear?
Grandpa: No. You’re homely as a mule’s butt.
Homer: There. See?
Homer: Aw, twenty dollars! I wanted a peanut!
Homer’s Brain: Twenty dollars can buy many peanuts!
Homer: Explain how!
Homer’s Brain: Money can be exchanged for goods and services!
Homer: Old people don’t need companionship. They need to be isolated and studied so it can be determined what nutrients they have that might be extracted for our personal use.
Homer: My ears are burning.
Lisa: I wasn’t talking about you, Dad.
Homer: No, my ears are really burning. I wanted to see inside, so I lit a Q-tip.
Find daily inspiration. Maybe its your kids or your wife that makes you want to be a better person and live a better life. Keep a picture of them close by to remind you of the reason you need change and want change.
Make your own items instead of buying them. Instead of buying household cleaners look on the internet for recipes to make your own. Not only are there a bunch of recipes many are natural so you don’t have to worry about your children or the environment.
Don’t speed. Not only does speeding affect your gas mileage it can cost you in tickets. Do yourself a favour and go the speed limit.
Buy a smaller house. Have your kids moved out? or do you live by yourself? If you find yourself with more space then you have anything to do with consider downsizing or at least rent out the extra space to make money.
Ask for fees to be waivered. Anytime you sign up for a service there are normally sign-up fees ask them if they can be waived. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t but it doesn’t hurt to try.
