  • Number 12: Reading that article will be worthwhile.

    Learn from my mistakes, people.
  • WTF did I just read?

    /I mean... in the annals of pointless, idiotic, gotnothinbutadeadline articles I've EVER read, that sucked wet mossy frog ass
    //tl;dr: your blog sucks
  • Hey, did anybody mention that article sucked?
  • Of the first two responses here, A: is the correct choice....

    A very good list & well worth reading & thinking about. I was seeing myself years ago in FAR too many of them. The best advice in there though was:

    "So rather than defer vacation and adventure to a time when your body is rapidly deteriorating, take regular vacations and mini-retirements throughout your career. "


    How I wish I had followed that bit of wisdom years ago. Looking at my retired parents/in-laws & what they're doing with their time, I know that they're enjoying life but they also have regrets. Growing up my parents loved to camp/backpack & we did get out on the occasional trip. Now they still go 'camping' but it is in their motor home because they just can't physically take sleeping on the ground & carrying their stuff miles into the mountains.

    Myself, I really wanted to hike the AT right after college but couldn't work things out with the Army to go in in the fall/winter. At the time it was no big deal to move the hike into the 'someday' category as there were LOTS of somedays ahead of me. FFWD 25 years & due to health issues over the past couple of years, I know that it will never happen now (I'll be lucky if I don't need a wheelchair eventually...).

    Make, don't take, make the time to do the things that you really want to when you're young enough to really do them. You never know what the future will bring (or if you will even have a future...).
  • FTFA: Often times, this primal desire to grow up kills our curiosity and desire to learn. It keeps us from learning new tricks or trying new things. It strips of us innocence and encourages us to generalize, judge, and belittle others. It makes us old.

    Until recently, I never really understood just how rare curiosity actually is. I meet SO MANY people that have no desire to learn anything new or are even interested about the world around them. I guess I've always taken for granted my desire to try new experiences or learn new things. Since it came naturally to me, I just thought everyone had it. But the more life goes on, the more I realize that's not the case. But whatever. More adventure for me. Everyone thinks it's weird that I'm going to Europe this summer by myself, but life is passing by and can't wait any longer. I've talked to plenty of older people who all wish they had done more living, and I'm going to learn from their mistakes.
  • If something seems too good to be true, you must just be lucky?

    Who the hell says that, but the most desperate of home-shopping network viewers?

  • Is this a joke? Did Fark really just post this?
  • Don't do what people tell you what to do.
    Don't let a woman use your money.

    Do learn a new language.
    DO learn to dance new steps.

    Don't spend money of stuff.
    Do spend time with your family.

    You can find family anywhere.
    You can't buy friends.
  • I do "regret stopping to smell the roses", actually. I sometimes feel like I pissed away a lot of time when I was younger, that I should've been using more actively.

    Like now. Only, I'm wasting my employer's time at the moment, not mine.
  • Man, I'm soooo glad I read this article.

    It is easily a main factor facing education of children today. Lack of curiosity.

    She'll respect your persistence.
  • 11) Don't bite down really hard on your own penis. Sometimes this happens accidentally, like hiccoughing while self-fellating.

    Well, the blackmail photos/videos do.
  • Article seemed to lack pics of breasts, bewbs, etc.
