Re: What advice would you give your teenage self

For christ's sake don't get married.

You can end up being a full time carer, your only life will be ruined and totally destroyed and the only joyous light on the horizon is death.

I answered the question and gave a reason.
Now stop trying to hijack the thread by diverting it, you can believe whatever you like.

Talking Re: What advice would you give your teenage self

I realise that these sorts of letters are generally written to a much younger self but that would imply that I'm so much wiser now and, frankly, I still don't know my arse from my elbow.

Guess I might tell myself: There’s a law that every mistake you make leads to some kind of learning and becoming stronger. Change your name to Atlas.

Also: Never mention poison to someone on whom you have a crush. NO EXCEPTIONS. ('nuff said)

Spoiler Alert: Its OK to disturb your universe. Shove someone! Throw a rock at a house! No progress was ever forged by passivity. Cut down an ugly tree!

Finally, in retrospect you should realize, I spent half my money on alcohol and wild women, the other half I totally wasted.

Another would be "don't worry, in 80 years you won't give a damn"
Oh, wait. I think I might have actually gone back and had a word with myself at some point...

Buy Microsoft initial public offering at $21.00 per share.
Quote:
If you had the good fortune to have bought 100 shares at the $21 offering price that day and sat on the investment for 25 years, it would have mushroomed into 28,800 shares over the course of nine stock splits and be worth about three quarters of a million dollars today.

Re: What advice would you give your teenage self

My dad had a shot at buying stock for the IPO of RCA back in the great depression. But he had no dollars to spend on that, which was depressing. Then back in the 70's he saw the stock history and prices of RCA and got greatly depressed all over again.
