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.

Cycling forever!
When I was about 14 years old I was cycling down Broadstairs front and stopped to admire the view. Some old bloke with a cane came up to me and told me he had stopped cycling a few months ago after being hit by a car and now his health was suffering due to the lack of pedaling. He must have been about 80 odd.

He told me to never stop cycling as it's the best form of exercise there is. And with that he walked off. What a nice old man, I thought.

Since then I've been on the fags, get pissed up regularly and general eat quite badly, but I've never stopped cycling so I'm still relatively fit.

I sometimes wonder if that guy was me coming back from the future to tell myself probably the most important thing that would allow me to get that old. Or maybe that's just the acid talking.
