Good list by Mudypony!

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

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


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I am not sure if it gets cold in the winter where you live, but winter blankets are always good!

And fly spray!
