This is a question Advice from Old People

Sometimes, just sometimes, old people say something worth listening to. Ok, so it's like picking the needle out of a whole haystack of mis-remembered war stories, but those gems should be celebrated.

Tell us something worthwhile an old-type person has told you.

Note, we're leaving the definition of old up to you, you smooth-skinned youngsters.

My grandad
When I was a nipper in the 80's playing on one of those legendary/shite Commodore64 light gun games, my Grandad was in the room and came out with this gem of advice:

"Three in the head and you know they're dead".

He used to be in the original Special Air Service out in Africa in WW2.

Don't know if that's a motto of theirs or not but, I'm sure I'll come in handy if I ever need to shoot someone to death.

When you mentioned the
SAS thing, that's what sealed it.

Before that I just thought he was a crazy cahoot, but then I realised he was a crazy cahoot with bollocks.
