Name "UNWRITTEN" Rules That JWs Are Supposed To Follow
I actually don't believe most JWs are dumb or stupid. I know many well read and educated witnesses. The problem is that they don't apply their intellectual skills towards looking closely at their faith. I think many know that if they did they would never be the same so they choose to stay in ignorance on purpose.
No staying after school for projects - bad association!
No making friends with worldly kids when you live at home - unless they agree to study and/or attend meetings with you.
No decorating with corn stalks at your door in the fall - too worldy/resembles Halloween
Heres an old one that had since quite being practiced but used to be:
not putting your name on a gift at a baby/wedding shower - considered a lack of humility to show what you gave.
I was told, don't worry so much about school, time is short, the end is coming in just a few short years, quit school, pioneer, 75 is almost here!
I will be able to retire when I die! Well I won't be able to work that long, I am slowly losing the feelings in my feet and legs! I hope someone shoots me before I get to the totally dependent state!
Thanks so much JW.borg!

Always wear nylons, even in 90 degree heat.
It is inappropriate to hug brothers, even if the brother initiates the hug.
Don't come to the meeting with a blank Watchtower.
Take notes during talks to show you're paying attention, even if they are just the same thoughts and scriptures as every other meeting.

In a former cong we had one of the dragon-class who would rush .. rush.. over to but into any non married couple who were conversing.

Lucky Scandinavian sisters.... They might go to Magix Mike XXL then, since in Norway it is allowed for all ages... whereas in the US it is a big no no since it is an R-rated film... Oops, of course their bible trained conscience would of course not allow them to go anyway.
