Difference between "than" and "then"

There is a big difference between "than" and "then". "Than" is used to describe things of difference, most often preceded by the words "rather" or "other". "Then" is used to describe time.
Examples:
Okay-
I would rather go to the movies with Jill than go out to dinner with her and her parents.
I would rather go to the movies with Jill, then go out to dinner with her and her parents.
Not Okay-
I'd rather sit here feeling sorry for myself than blow every guy off.
I'd rather sit here feeling sorry for myself, then blow every guy off.

More examples? If you were unable to figure that one out, you should go fuck yourself then crawl in a hole and live alone for a while rather than stay here wondering what the hell I'm babbling on about potatoes.
