"The tiger of the mind is more fierce than the tiger of the jungle."
– Spanish saying

When you are soooo mad at someone that you want to plunge a knife down his heart or use a fork to gouge out his eyes, remember these 3 useful tips:

1. When discussing the issue or problem, use "I feel" sentences. Example: Say "I feel upset that you lied to me" instead of "You're a f*cking liar!" To do otherwise will surely draw a negative reaction from the other party that will only make you angrier.

2. Find a quiet spot where you can vent your rage. Lock yourself in the toilet and scream your head off! Take a (cheap) figurine to your basement and throw it on the floor. Remember to sweep up.

3. “When angry, count to ten before you speak; if very angry, count to one hundred,” according to Thomas Jefferson. The more you delay your reaction, the more sane it's bound to be.

The next time someone makes your blood boil, be warned: 'Anger is one letter short of DANGER.'
