I don't know about number 4.That's a bit debatable.

10 and 11 jumped put at me first without having to ponder. I'll ponder on the rest

I love 9 and 10. Can't say I agree with 4 though - some things may get better, but if everything did that would be rather defying the law of averages.

Also not sure about 6 - I may have to give that one a lot of thought

Nr 1 has some value. The rest? Nah.

I love No.9 - However, up here its probably best to share them with people you know. On more than one occasion I have been asked "What are you smiling at? Are you laughing at me?" (Only in Scottish, and with a few swearwords popped in for good measure!)

I didn't realise there was a translation website English to Scottish: "Dè a tha thu a 'gàire? A bheil thu a' gàireachdainn orm?" Would that be about right? (I've left out any swear words.)

Number 4 – I would take issue with as things often do get so much worse, unless of course that refers to the saying 'things usually get worse before they get better'?

Number 9 – some people do take exception to another smiling at them so I don't do this. Just a polite "good morning" or "good afternoon" usually seems to suffice.

Number 12 – just one comment which is "look at the first line of my signature below".

They all seem pretty true to me although a few more could be added to the list, things like; Sh*t happens, Sod's Law etc.
