    - If you ever meet a future version of yourself, it's important to remember exactly what you say, so you can say exactly the same things when you meet your past self in the future. (I'm sure that makes sense.)

    - Dodgy salesmen have enormous hats and jackets with unmoving patterns.

    - A great girl will agree to date you even after you accidentally wreck half her mansion to steal something.

    - A great girl will agree to marry you even after you accidentally turn her into a golden statue.

    - A great girl will stay married to you even after you accidentally release a voodoo pox on the Caribbean.

    still. it was a long time XD

  • 1. Drinks that are highly corrosive are perfectly harmless.
    2. Drugging pyranha poodles is perfectly acceptable behaviour.
    3. Monkeys can sail boats.
    4. Growing a beard makes you look cool.
    5. If you're stuck with a real physical problem, think way way way outside the box (honestly helped several times in real life).

  • 1. Your tongue must be sharper than your sword.
    2. Pick up everything that is not nailed or glued to something.
    3. If it is, try to get it loose.
    4. When you see your dead parents in a dream singing, WRITE THOSE LYRICS DOWN!
    5. Pistol beats banjo.

    :D Those were the best so far! ;)

    Let's see what I learned...
    - Root beer is actually made from roots.
    - It is possible to hang from a rope with a treasure chest in one hand for three days.
    - You can take off the sunburnt tattooed skin of a sleeping person without waking them up (Yuck!).
    - You can die twice under different names and then cash in your life insurance.
    - A pyrite parrot can survive being melted and molded into a different shape twice, but it can't survive being swallowed by a giant manatee (or can it...?).

  • I learned this.

    Haggis: Ya see... carpentry in this tropical climate can and will prematurely age yer skin! 'Tis but one of the many hardships a pirate must face daily during this barbarous age. Aye! And if we pirates didn't carry hand lotion aboard all our ships, we'd probably die from the chafing.
    Guybrush: Wow! If I were doing a history report on pirates and I included that fact I'd get an A+. We're talking GUARANTEED A+. And that A+ might just get you into the college of your choice. Think about it.
