There is no relevance to your post, but i really wanted you to laugh at this:

Random thoughts from people 20-35 years old

- What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each
other?

- While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and
instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart.

- I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello?
Dammit!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes
to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and
run away?

- There is a great need for sarcasm font.

- Bad decisions make good stories.

- More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can
think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell
my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

- I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear
your computer history if you die.

- LOL has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to
say".

- Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you
realise you're wrong.

- I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and
hunger.

- I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

- How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod
and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?

- I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up
to prevent a dick from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers!

- Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Trousers ? Trousers never
get dirty; you can wear them forever.

- I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

- You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work
when you've made up your mind that you just aren't doing anything
productive for the rest of the day.

- There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are
going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

- I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me
if I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I swear
I did not make any changes to.

- I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing
anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

- When I meet a new girl, I'm terrified of mentioning something she
hasn't already told me but that I have learned from some light internet
stalking.

- I like all of the music in my iTunes, except when it's on shuffle,
then I like about one in every fifteen songs in my iTunes.

- Why is a school zone 25 km/h? That seems like the optimal cruising
speed for paedophiles...

- Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not
know what time it is.

- I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to
answer when they call.

- My 4-year old son asked me in the car the other day "Dad what would
happen if you ran over a ninja?" How the hell do I respond to that?

- I wonder if cops ever get pis*ed off at the fact that everyone they
drive behind obeys the speed limit.

20something, what it lacks in relevancy, it makes up for in entertainment. Some of them are pretty funny.

There's a bunch of people making addenda to the list, you might enjoy them.

And if this is comment spam, then it has to be the most benign of its kind I've ever received (:

No spam, fully intentional source of smiles!
My favourite out of "added ones" is: I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

You've passed the Turing test 20something, and I thank you for the intentional smiles (:

Regarding the neglect of napping; I'm sure we all have lush and vivid memories about satisfying our curiosity about the world around us, when we were supposed to be napping, so it's not all wasted (:

I really like the one about changing directions on the sidewalk, and trying to make it look natural. Don't even want to count the amount of times I've done this, haha.
