You've probably heard the news about the upcoming remake, but there is still so much in the original Predator that has gone unappreciated. Below is a list of the life lessons we could learn from Dutch and his crew as they try to take on the Predator himself.

“I don’t have time to bleed”.
Lol. Someone has way too much time on their hands.
Recharging would be a bear. Would a small alternator with a belt help to keep up the charge?
They’re remaking Predator? Which metrosexual queerboy are they going to get to take Arnold’s place?
Also in my opinion the single most impressive 30-second show of hand-held firepower ever on screen when firing blindly into the jungle.
Jesse ventura and the indian were by far the two most likeable characters in that team. The black guy that WASN’T apollo was pretty cool too.
I rank it like this:
cowboy (jesse ventura)
gritty black guy
Hell, that movie was darn near a john wayne flick...but without a john wayne or a suitable substitute.
It’s NOT a chain gun!
They’ve narrowed it down to ben stiller and owen wilson. Which one do you favor?
"Do you have time to duck?"
Ping list for the discussion of the politics and social (and sometimes nostalgic) aspects that directly effects Generation Reagan / Generation-X (Those born from 1965-1981) including all the spending previous generations are doing that Gen-X and Y will end up paying for.

When we learn it: After his first encounter with the Predator who has just killed his squad-mate, Mac picks up old painless and peppers the nearby shrubbery with bullets. The rest of the team soon joins in.
Why it's important: It takes a whole hell of a lot of bullets, but one finally catches the Predator, spilling some of his blood and providing an important clue. It's not the most efficient model for getting things done, but it's a lot better than sitting back and doing nothing.
I liked this bit in the movie, but I get a different lesson from it. If your buddy starts shooting into the woods, don't interrupt him to ask what he saw or what's going on. Just get out of his line of fire by standing next to him, fire at what he's aiming at, and then when its over, then you can ask him what it's all about. But in the meantime, trust him, its important.
Probably Shia Lebouff or Aston Krucher.
they forgot the best one:
GET TO DEE CHOPPA....NOW!
**this would mean a lesson in making haste!**
They were going to remake Conan with Triple-H
It was fun to watch, but a little demented. For the same weight, I'd rather have an AR-15 with 1250 rounds of ammo than a minigun with 200 rounds of ammo. Of course, the minigun does look a lot cooler.
