Fun with Paper Money Faces
This site has a cool way to kill some time - folding paper money (you provide the bill):
check out their page for more examples. Apparently you can fold the money in a cheerful way when you are buying something nice, and a "grumpy way" when you are paying the bills, or taxes.
...or paying for damages from this incident:

Darn kids! some of them are contemplating unmentionable, daring feats:
and some of them are already using daring words:
you think your kid's life is simple and uncomplicated? How about jealosy:
...as they grow up they start to see certain objects everywhere:

Witness WORST SENTENCES FROM SCIENCE FICTION!
Found here a small, but hilarious collection. Some of the gems:

USE MEANINGLESS BUT WEIGHTY-SOUNDING WORDS AND PHRASES
"Suppose you want to say,"Peruvians would like to order appetizers more often, but they don't have enough money."

USE SNAPPY AND IRRELEVANT COMEBACKS
You need an arsenal of all-purpose irrelevant phrases to fire back at your opponents when they make valid points. The best are:
You're begging the question.
You're being defensive.
Don't compare apples to oranges.
What are your parameters?
For the best argument of all, read the original page.
