(Newser) – Say what you will about Tiger Woods, but the cheating golfer has taught us quite a bit about sexting, rehab, and how to keep your affairs quiet. Mary Elizabeth Williams offers up the top 10 lessons from Tiger, at Salon:

  • Who not to hook up with: Skip women named “James, Jaime, or Jaimee.”
  • And while you’re at it: Skip porn stars, too. “When the tabloids come calling, the star of Mayhem Explosions 8 may not have your best interests at heart.”

  • There’s a rehab facility for everything: Use words like “treatment,” “layers of denial,” and “amends” to turn your misdeeds into “a force you're powerless against”—for just $20,000.
  • Be careful who you talk about: Your former kindergarten teacher, who you once accused of not protecting you, will come back to “cash in.”
  • TMZ and the National Enquirer are surprisingly legit: “And then, two weeks later, the latecomers will weigh in with their serious think pieces on why it all matters. Oh, mainstream media, you're the biggest tramp of all.”
