when I move out and get my own apartment/house, I will never bake cookies again. why would you go to the trouble to bake them when they taste better straight from the bucket or however you buy them or mix them???

Imho, home-baked goods, whether they are cakes or cookies are better, because at least when one bakes them at home, s/he knows what goes into them. Many, if not most of those store-bought cookie dough batches or cake mixes have all kinds of preservatives put into them that serve no purpose except to prolong the shelf life. Who needs those chemicals? It's better to find a favorite recipe or recipes, purchase the ingredients, and bake the cookies or cake(s) at home!

You do know rules are made to help you. Not annoy you. I understand what you say. My parents make many rules. But they know whats best. They try to make us to better people. That is usually their motive; not to annoy you.

Well yeah, they are made to help you. And although your parents - a.k.a. the authority - make them for your own benefit, there are certain rules where your opinion should be considered.

Rules are there for a reason--for more efficient operation. For example, if everybody came waltzing into school or work any old time they felt like it, nothing would get accomplished, plus if one's working a full or even a part-time job, they'll be out on their ear if they did that long enough. Sometimes, rules can be broken if there's some sort of an emergency or crisis at home or whatever that causes somebody to come in late. In that event, it's common courtesy and a matter of ethics to m... (more »)

I think that its funny how people break these simple rules to follow. (I do it all the time) Everytime I do it there seems to be someone correcting my mistakes or always pointing it out though.

I loved all of it. I think I have done every single thing on that list except for the “Straighten your hair if it’s frizzy,” because I am a guy. I also liked the one that said “Don’t eat raw cookie dough even though it tastes good.” I have broken that rule many times before. I never thought about how much I break these rules until this list. You should make another twenty different rules you have broke.
