The worst advice ever

What was the worst advice you ever got and took
I sit here pondering my belly button and think back over my life and consider the paths I took that would have made a difference to the outcome of my life.
Hindsight gives you 20/20 vision but I know if I had gone the other way with all of this advice my life would be totally different.
Chimpanzee contemplating the world
1. You will never make as much as a bike mechanic as a car mechanic. Back in 1985 I was an appy Bike mechanic and my journey man said this to me, I went ahead and became an appy car mechanic.
2. No son of mine will be a grease monkey. My dad said this to me and I became a cabinet maker instead.
3. Once you have been here 5 years you will never go back. I was in the UK and don’t remember who said this but Fuck them, the horse they rode in on and their mother.
4. If I could live wherever I wanted to, I’d want a sea view. I squandered an opportunity by buying a house with a seaview, rather than a farm in the Lowveld.
These are just 4 of the forks I chose that would have made a huge difference had I gone the other way. I often think of those decisions and wonder whether they would have changed my life.
Each of those decisions, when looking at people that were there and went the opposite way, that are far better off than I am.
It’s that first one that was the worst, I have never been happier at work than I was servicing Suzuki B120’s. If I could go back, that’s the one I would change more than any of the others.

Add some value stupid

Man am I tired of the stupid. The internet is the ideal vehicle for discussing issues, for helping solve the world’s problems and then of course for Memes and pron.
The thing though is that there is a time an a place for everything. If I want to watch pron I’ll go looking for it. I love memes on my timeline.
dumbest meme
A funny meme in the right place is enough to destroy an argument, support an argument or even just prove how stupid you are.
I like words, words add value, If you want to argue with me, hell, be my guest, if you offer a reasoned and well thought out argument I will engage, If you have a stupid argument I may tell you to go play chess with pigeons.
What really is going to piss me off is a meaningless meme dropped in like it means something. I see the same few memes over and over, like they are supposed to add value and all I see is a poster that has nothing important or even intelligent to add.
Even the dumbest of comments is better than a stupid meme.
