Default A question for those over the age of 20...

The question: If you could send a single piece of advice back to yourself at age 16, what would it be?

I'd probaly advise my younger self to have his kidneys looked at sooner- might have prevented the whole failure and dialysis thing....

And for the younger gits out there: What would you do if you suddenly received what looks to be advice from yourself in the future?

I'd yell at my future selfs impossibilty and keep doing so til i proved it or gave up in frustration.

Someday someone will say something about me witty or memorable enough to put here til then enjoy this;

Nothing.. I wouldnt tell myself anything cause everything that has happened I have learnt from. Might sound gay but sometimes you have to go through these things to learn.

I'd tell myself - "She isn't worth it."

I wouldn't listen...but at least I could look in the mirror and say "I told you so."

Also, I would find an ingenious way to prevent Michael Jackson's death.

I would hit myself with one of those really thick Encyclopedias several times really hard and say 'Do It Damn You'
I failed at my high school education.
I got GCSE's but they were abominable compared to what i could have done.

I would have told my younger self to not leave school at 15...that would have saved me from having to go to Uni 15 years later.

Mind you, I wouldn't have gone on that trip where I met my wife-to-be...that would be a major bummer.
