A bit of advice from someone so old (compared to you) that he is nearly dead. Kill those debts before you buy toys. And, enjoy working, you are going to be doing it a LONG time, unless of course you take the first advice...

The only way I'll go back to been 18 is if im allowed to keep my present knowledge and experience once I go back....
Then again I have learn to enjoy the present long and hard so I dont have to miss the past or keep hoping for the future... so have that extra beer, that extra laugh or that extra kiss whenever you have the chance cause the moment is at hand and we never get reruns!!!

18 again? No way. Crappy pay, living with parents, going to school.

Only good thing about being 18 are underage girls are still "okay" and I could still f-up and not really get blamed for it, cause, I'm was only 18.

Alright, I'm not old, but I am 25 and in college. Most of my fellow classmates are 18-19. I just take one look at them and don't ever want to go back to that age. They're all a bunch of dumbasses!

heh... knowhatchamean....

I didn't start college until I was 26.
I s'pose I was more mature.. (open to debate).

The biggest thing tho, college was a WHOLE lot more expensive that way. I am still paying for it.

You ain't got that much smarter...you got caught in a photo next to the likes of me!

I would go back to being 18 again if I could take the knowledge and experience I have now with me + $10,000. I'd sink it all into Microsoft, cash out in '99 and buy Fiji and stock it w/ girls from Hustler.

18? No thanks. Hell I didn't even start pulling my head out of my arse till I was in my late twenties.
Being 32 I believe it is still partially stuck up there but at least things are starting to smell better.

timmy,

First off, you're nowhere near being old.

Second, reading your posts is like listening to a bad speaker at a drive through window.

You're 21...that is just the beginning of life.
Come back and lets talk this over in another 20 or 30 years.

Zorro, at least at the drive through, you have a chance to get something you want, if you are lucky. With Timmy, not so much.
