This is a difficult one. On one hand I'd say don't join the army and get some engineering qualifications. On the other though if I didn't join the Army I wouldn't of met the gf or moved into acting / met madonna / worked with danny dyer or sean bean.

To be honest, I wouldn't change a thing. I'd say party hard, fight hard, man up and fucking deal with the shit thats headed your way.

I would tell remind myself of that old adage, "This too shall pass." I would tell myself to live well, love fully, and enjoy every moment to its fullest.

I wouldn't say anything. Just now I say something that alters my past's future which has the result of preventing me from going back in time and giving myself advice, thus resulting in me NOT giving myself advice which means I can go back in time to give myself advice, causing me to get stuck in a paradoxical loop which causes the universe to implode.

The human appendix. Proof of a higher power. A divine kill switch so to speak.

No one really likes a smartass, but people tend to like a dumbass even less.

"Yes, she's a bitch. Yes, she's not appreciative. Yes, she's an alcoholic who cheats on you with 11 different people compromising both genders. But at least get in her pants before you end it. I mean, she is pretty hot...."

And what shoulder, & what art. Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat, What dread hand? & what dread feet?
What the hammer? what the chain? In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp, Dare its deadly terrors clasp?
When the stars threw down their spears, And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see? Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

for me it would have been "Hey dumbass, get a grip, stop loafing around, and join the army, your only gonna do it when you're 19 anyway"

If my future self came back in time, I'd ask two things-

1) "Did my parents put you up to this? Because seriously, that's lame. I've seen that South Park episode- I'm not a dumbarse"

2) Assuming the fat old bastard can prove he's me, I'd ask for the blueprints for his time machine, and the precise date of when he travelled back in time. That way, whatever he's come back to tell me will not have paradoxically robbed himself of the desire and means to come back. All I'd have to do is build the time machine and go back in time regardless of what differences occur between our time lines. Now that's how you do time travel!

I`d say...

'Man the fuck up and ask her out, you`re never gonna meet another one like her again! If you don`t, you`ll regret it, and she will too!'

If I`d heard it back then... Ah, the life that could have been... ...

Nonsense is our Salvation
