    If you had one shot at sending a note back in time to yourself what would you put in it.

    My first thoughts.
    Don't take Cheri to the prom.
    Your friend Mark is a jerk.
    Buy microsoft stock.
    Dont sell the 68 camaro.

    LOL... good one, deh! :D

    For me... right now, when I met my psycho soon to be ex-wife (fingers crossed) I should have turned around & ran, not walked to the nearest exit! :D

    First I must agree with Lightning Bolt, as I too made the mistake of not running away screaming when I had the chance.

    I might have sent a message to buy stock in Microsoft and Intel.

    Wealth WOULD solve many of the issues that I have today, so I will go ahead and send back the winning numbers of the 280 million dollar powerball lottery.

    I would have told myself to take all the advantage for education I was giving right out of high school instead of going to work. Don't get me wrong, going to work made me realize how easy I had it when I was in school. Just wish I would have applied myself a little more back then. Of course the note would have been written on newspaper page with the lotto numbers and current stock prices. :D

    Quit drinking sooner and enjoy life because old age doesn't creep up it zooms up.

    Well i would write:
    don't take Mark to the prom and he is a jerk. Will save lots of trouble if you stay from him.

    Do not begin to smoke.

    BTW - Remember that old Twilight Zone episode with a group of people that find a polaroid camera? They discover that it takes pics of future events. So....they go to the track and make a fortune by taking pics of the boards before the race begins. They then place the winning bets. They make a fortune.

    Back in the hotel room somebody takes a pic of the 10th story window from their room. When the pic self develops, it shows a broken window. Next thing that happens is they all begin fighting over their valuable camera...guess what happens?

    ...But seriously folks.

    I would have sent a detailed note, outlining my future, to convince myself:

    1) "Do not quit the best job you will ever have." :rolleyes:

    2) "Do not move west." :mad:

    3) "DO NOT let her move in with you!" :eek:

    4) "Jim: don't________________.":(
