Never tell a lie
Lie to no one. If there 's somebody close to you, you'll ruin it with a lie. If they're a stranger, who the fuck are they you gotta lie to them?

Earlier this year
A few weeks ago I spotted a man drop his wallet, he didn't notice so I picked it up and ran after him.

When I gave it back to him, his face lit up. He was of Middle Eastern descent and he said to me "Thank you. I owe you so much. A word of advice: Don't go to London on June 12th"

Shocked, I asked "Why, will there be a bomb there?"

He said "No. It's just shit".

This advice
is actually surprisingly worth heeding...if you don't take it too literally.

"Never apologise"

My colleague's rationale for this was, if you find yourself in a position where you have to say sorry, you can only have arrived at it by maliciousness because otherwise you'll have a perfectly reasonable excuse for your actions. So don't be malicious and you'll never have to say sorry.

Good Advice
If you have to ask yourself if its a good idea,
it is probably a very bad idea.

This applies to underage women you are about to shag,
strange pills you are about to swallow,
and just about anything you ask yourself when drunk.

On the other hand, it'll probably be fun, so do it anyway,
and fuck the consequences.....

Advice from James Herriot I wish I'd have known
One old farmer giving me advice about choosing a wife once said; "Have a bloody good look at the mother first, lad. " and I am sure he had a point. But if I may throw in my own little word of counsel it would be to have a passing glance at how she acts towards her father.

Say What
I was walking with a friend and spied a human-sized turd (not the size of a human) and prodly suggested "Mind the Crap!", a line I had been eager to say for some time.

Apparantly he hadnt seen the turd and turns to me and asks "What did you say" while continuing to walk.

I saw the whole thing in slow motion; the crap wrapped around his shoe like a fat brown sloth administering a hug and his foot sank deep into it.

time immediately speeds up and all of a sudden he is hopping around, screaming, slapping his foot on the ground.

I cant help but to laugh at him.

It reminds me of that scene in teh matrix with the vase

Don't listen to college careers advisors
From past experience they know bugger all and will tell you nothing useful.
If you want to do something, go out there and find a way to do it yourself.
You don't need some wally working for connexions to tell you all the reasons why you'll never be able to do it.
