Sense / Charlie Schulz Philosophy/ Video ...

Uhhh OOOh... OOOpppss....

Hi Folks,

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the creator of the 'Peanuts' comic strip.You don't have to actually answer the questions. Just read the e-mail straight through and you'll get the point.

The Charlie Schulz Philosophy ......

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

2 Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.

3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.

4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.

5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.

6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies... Awards tarnish and Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.

2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.

3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile...

4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special!!

5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.


The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials... the most money...or the most awards. They simply are the ones who care the most

'Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia!'

''Be Yourself. Everyone Else Is Taken!”

1) If you want to do something, you should do it today - tomorrow it may be against the law.

Talking of Laws have you, like most of us come up against the 'next Law' .... you know what law I mean , the one that has " the ner ner, nee ner ner" factor !!

1) Law of the Workshop: Any tool, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.
2) Law of Probability: The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.
3) Law of the Telephone: If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal.
4) Law of the Alibi: If you tell the boss you were late for work because you had a flat tyre, the very next morning you will have a flat tyre.
5) Variation Law: If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will start to move faster than the one you are in now.
6) Law of the Bath: When the body is fully immersed in water, the telephone rings.
7) Law of Rugs and Carpets: The chances of an open-faced jelly sandwich landing face down on a floor covering are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpeting.
8) Law of Location: No matter where you go, there you are.
9) Law of Logical Argument: Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.
10)Wilson's Law: As soon as you find a product that you really like, they will stop making it.

That last one is one which I have found particularly annoying in relation to 'comfortable shoes' ......
