Also, if you're a recovering Catholic, you might be interested in my post "Does the Flying Spaghetti Monster Really Exist?". Tasty reading.
I disagree with #20. Many great authors are wickedly critical of the writing of others. At times, they temper their comments, but as was the case with Faulkner and Hemingway, at times they let loose with the most viscous of criticisms.

On #19, there was a recent study that men are less likely to cheat with their friends' wives than any other women. The reason - while there is ample contact between the two, the contact is typically supervised, and the chances for adulterous contact are infrequent at best. Also, men have evolved to appreciate friendship, and when coupled with the low opportunity ratio to bang your friend's wife, their testosterone levels drop significantly around these women.

Basically - bros before hos...it's evolutionary (how ironic, no?)
