Rules of Thumb

Some assorted  rules of thumb:

“Bears can outrun, outclimb, and outswim a human. Your only hope is to run downhill. A bear’s center of gravity makes it difficult for them to run downhill. ” — Steven M. Keisman, New York City high school resource coordinator

“If the cream swirls up brown, you have a cup of freshly brewed coffee. If it swirls up grey, the coffee has been sitting on the burner too long.” — Rick Eckstrom, plan review officer, Ithaca, New York

“To tear Saran Wrap smoothly, hold your thumb on the W of the box.” — Nancy Heffernan Eckstrom, nutritionist, Barton, New York

“Don’t stand within five meters of the lion tunnel when the lions are entering or exiting the ring. The lions will pee on you.” — Todd Strong, circus school student, Chalons-sur-Marne, France
