Ok so I'm basically working on an assignment, I'm supposed to be having a discussion about a common saying or phrase (kind of lame I know) and I have chosen this one (see thread title) as I figure basically everyone has used it or thought it at some point.

What I would like some help with is thinking up some good examples of this, I know it can be applied to pretty much anything but I thought I'd ask all of you highly knowledgeable people here in the pit.

There are a bunch of obvious ones such as the economy, rise to power, the value of retail products (ie you buy it, its value decreases immediately) etc. Anyone else got any good ones from everyday life?
A penis. Go ups when you get a boner, comes down when it's sad.

There is no point except party and be healthy and happy. Also money is not something to live for. If i didnt need money for drugs and beer i would give mine away.

EDIT: ^I was right, this thread is about wangs.
If you're a hot chick you've probably got a good chance with the lead singer or guitar player, If you're a little bit overweight, you should probably go for the drummer. If you're a dude, go for the bass player

Listen to this man. His 2 ideas in five minutes have shat all over your serious ideas.
To be emotionally high, happy as you have ever been, that means that every other occurrence will be less pleasant than your current state.

Conversely, if you're feeling low, most occurrences will make you happier.
If you laugh at this I get to have sex with you.

you could use something going up in flames as an example. and it comes back down when the flame burns itself out.

or walk up to the teacher and raise your middle finger to his/her face and put it down xD

Nope, no boners have been mentioned yet.

For example a girl cannot get pregnant if she's riding the man.

Well duh. How could you get pregnant from a piggy-back ride?
