    Truisms .... the younger folks need to know about Older people

    Things to always remember about older people :

    * remember, the threat of "life in prison" may be a short term thing for them, and they get free laundry service, don't have to go shopping, meals they don't have too cook, better medical care and they don't have to listen to the ole lady nag any more after 50 yrs.

    * if they have a revolver, it means they've been shooting for a long time, don't test their ability to use it nor their marksmanship.

    * Older people have a lower tolerance level, they have been putting up with crap for numerous years ....... they've passed their maximum alloted level and don't intend to put up with much more.

    * Older people, love kids..... because they make your life miserable and theirs tolerable, and it's entertaining to watch you trying to manage them without having any clue what you are doing. '

    * Older people and kids have a lot in common .... they aren't trying to advance their career, aren't thinking about what job or house they want in the future, and only want to get the most out of today that they can.

    * Don't get in a fight with an older person, they don't have the endurance they used to have, which is not an advantage for you. It means they won't mess around.... they'll just put you into an unconscious state with the minimal amount of effort and in the shortest amount of time.

    * Remember, some day you'll be older too ...... treat them with the same care and respect you want to be treated when you get there, and listen...... after they are gone, you will wish you had.



    Any other "truisms" out there ?

    If you see an old guy wearing a "Zero Tolerance" T-shirt, leave him alone. He's not talking about some 3rd grader acting up in school.

    If a guy is too old to fight and too slow to run, he'll just shoot you.

    First rate stuff, Eagle. If I've survived this long, I can sure as heck make it awhile longer. It's called experience.

    Because, "the threat of "life in prison" may be a short term thing for them."

    This is a most important thing young thugs need to consider. Even if it isn't technically a righteous shoot,
    'so what yah gonna do about it?' Sentence a 75 y.o. with congestive heart failure, kidney disease and
    diabetes to life? Hah!!!!! Not much a threat of deterrent there.

    I still think we old boys would make awesome soldiers. Not much to lose and maybe something to gain.
