    Obviously you haven't heard of the quarter life crisis


    ^Butterfly net.

    You're not at quarter life status. Provided that you are hoping to live to 100. :rolleyes:

    Following from the other thread, originality level 8000.

    Anyway I'll go first.

    "Nate, don't worry your regen will make sure you're okay!"

    [Backstory was on the mezzanine level of floor - and was playing with BB guns, proceed to jump and break my leg and was injured for 12 weeks]

    Your turn.

    84 seems reasonable. I'm also male so...

    To be honest I'm more concerned with still having to work till that age ¬¬

    To me, personally, from my college tutor: 'I think dropping out of A Levels and finding a job would be best for you'.

    More generalised terrible advice:

    'If you have hiccups, drink a glass of water upside-down.' ENDS IN DISASTER EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

    So... so what? Just because they are supposed to live less... it doesn't mean that they will.

    Is this supposed to be another emoticon? -> ¬¬

    Well the odds are still against me. Some of it is environmental but some could also be genetic. Having two X chromosomes is supposed to give you better odds for living longer and when you might develop certain old age illnesses. Obviously men can only have one X chromosome.

    Yes it is. Maybe it is one only I use.

    Which is why women being able to retire sooner than men was the most unfair thing ever :huff:

    Get rich quick then. Discover some weird new physics concept. Then retire at 29.5 years old :cool:

    ^ Sorry!
    We do? I thought it was the same? Ooh, being a little sexist here but I guess women (some not all) at retirement age might be more frail and they might jot be able to continue with their jobs as well? <- Okay, that sounds a little pathetic :rolleyes:

    It became the same a few years ago. Also physicists rarely become rich. Or any scientists for that matter.

    Hopefully by the time we are old there will have been massive advances in medical care. Who know, cancer might be a thing of the past like all those Victorian diseases.

    Oh okay, that's better then.

    Don't be pessimistic

    Also, I'm planning on becoming a scientist (probably, a toxicologist) so... and I want to discover stuff. I'm sure you will!

    'I think you should exercise' - also by a psychologist I don't care what anybody says, when you're severely depressed you do not want to exercise and, for me anyway, it seemed impossible. That's all she would say every session over and over. She was so unhelpful and she made me even more frustrated. This was about 3 years ago and rumour has it she's been sacked now.

    In the third week of my AS year my biology teacher said she noticed I was struggling and would do better if I switched to BTEC Level 3 Applied Biology. I assured her I was fine but ended up getting an E It seemed like terrible advice at the time but I wish I had listened.

    'Your best is good enough' - my mum among others. I tried my best with AS Biology and got an E. Is that good enough? No. Many other examples but it seems I'm still hung up about biology today
