The Bachelor Party Lesson: You can’t get in trouble for watching.
The Sports Lesson: Your opponent has no sympathy for you lack of athletic ability.
The Free Ride Lesson: Never, ever pass up a free ride. Walking is the worst.
The Thin Ice Lesson: There’s only one way to accurately determine just how thin it is.
The Playboy Lesson: Best read shirtless with no girls around.
The Internet Lesson: Someone, somewhere is going to make you look like an asshole every time you post something on the internet.
The Mike Tyson Lesson: Never be the first to show fear. You’ll get eaten alive.
The Don’t Pee in the Pool Lesson: Because it’s the equivalent of pissing directly on every other swimmer’s head.
