I guess this is a continuation of the "most useful" or "least useful" threads that have been appearing.

This thread it means to be filled with good advice, golden rules and other generally useful information. All topics included. Just make sure it's useful.

Never live with anyone who's not (1) family or (2) messing with your fun parts.

Don't tug on Superman's cape.
Don't spit into the wind.
Don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger.
Don't mess around with Jim.

3. upper body weight increase
4. push-up become harder
5. GOTO line 1.
