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.

While We're On A Culture Kick
.
I thought I'd add a verse from that old racist, Kipling.

This has special meaning to me as my nephew, 21 year old commando who thinks he's indestructible, was on his first tour in this place last year. Not a day went by without this verse running through my head.

When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier.


Cheers

He came home OK. Thank God.
