    If they give you plain almonds on the plane, don't go in the bathroom and try to smoke them yourself.

    This is potentially deadly advice for those who have inner voices that aren’t looking out for their best interests.

    if you’re lucky enough to have an inner voice that is your ally, then I agree, listen to that voice.

    I'm loyal because of how I want to see myself. Like you, I learned long ago, that the only payday for loyalty is how you reward yourself for it.

    A Mexican friend of mine, he was from old Mexico, and had come here to make a new life. He attained his citizenship papers, and had a good job. One day, he was recounting a story about a love situation with some family members. He proved himself to me to be a great philosopher when he mused. You know ese, I think it's more better if they keep all the boy cows in one pen, and the girls cows in another pen until they get to be about thirty years old. He wasn't talking about cows.

    As an example I had emergency gallbladder surgery in December. I am paying my part of those bills now, about $4k. Much better than dying.

    Stay in school, when at all possible, finish what you start and plan for the future.

    Never annoy the math teacher in my school. Big fat blackboard rubber split my head open from across the room.

    Funny, In my own band, everything has always been quite democratic, all good friends ( just small potatoes, neighborhood group)

    But at the same time I played lead guitar in a Classic Country band for years( good $$ gigs), where it was definitely the opposite.

    We were ALL employees, of the bass player mgr. ( a**hole that admittedly, I put up with for the income) and we all (eventually me too!) would get fired for voicing our opinion, or arguing...
