You’re never too old to learn (well, within reason) - you’re definitely not too old. But it’s better to learn when you’re young and don’t have as much responsibilities to think about and deadlines looming up.

"Learn to keep your damn mouth shut. You're simultaneously too clever for your own good, and not half as clever as you think you are."

But big mouthed 16 year old me, being too clever for his own good, and not half as clever as he thought he was, would ignore the old idiot in from of him and make some stupid smart-ass remark.

I wouldn't tell her anything.

Everything in my life has led me to this point, to the situation I'm in now, and to the person I am today.

Telling my younger self something, even something insignificantly small, could cause a butterfly effect, and the next thing you know I could be homeless with one leg and only half my own teeth.

I can only drive one car at any one time. I don't need that many cars, it would be pointless.
