      Two that I made up and use constantly:

      If the sky is the limit, why are you still on the ground.

      Common sense is definitely not common.

    marine - you are dangerously close to getting 200 fans.

    I'd get my mad up if I was you.

    That's just one too many. And it just gets harder and harder to hide the marmalade.

      Lol, I only comprehended about 40% of what you just said. A frog that eats carrots?

  6. frogdropping profile image84
    frogdroppingposted 8 years ago

    I just had to marine. The irony. Ohhhhhh the irony.

    Now you touch me just once with a carrot and there'll be trouble.

    Welcome to me big_smile

    Oh for heavens sake marine. Will you please learn portuguese?

    Translated just for you:

    You HAD almost 200 fans. I'm trying to hold the 200th one off. And I had a good old moan about it. Having noticed that you had 199 - I pinched your 200th spot for myself.

    And I torment my fans with carrots. After I've nailed them to the wall. Which is what all hubbers should do. Didn't your grandma have a fan collection? Mine did. She hailed them all over the damn house. So - I do the same big_smile

    And I arrange them according to size, colour and whether they are in favour. Or not.

    1. marinealways24 profile image62
      marinealways24posted 8 years ago in reply to this

      That was very philosophical. I maybe understood around 20% that time. Hail to the fans and carrots. "It's not the power of the fan, it's the fan of power" ?

    marine - humph - what language do you talk? Not frog. Not portuguese. What then?

      I only speak St. Bernard. Do you have beef bones? Or chicken treats? I'm not that big on carrots. Was I right on the fan thing?

    You may win in an argument or discussion but not his/her heart. Sometimes we play to lose to win some gains.

    You cannot please everybody, but you can at least be pleasant to everyone else. When your in an all-out effort in doing your tasks to the best of your capabilities, always amiable at all times, and always fair and square with all your dealings, you can maximize the number of people that will appreciate you and your work.

    A single enemy is capable of inflicting immense damage in you like a colony of termites feasting on a wooden home. The backstabbing you can absorb from a foe could yield unpredictable magnitude of harm. Try to avoid having even a single enemy.

    All original nyahahaha, I extracted this from one of my hub i hope you'll like it though.
