    my mum always says: If you ask, you might be a fool for five minutes. if you don't ask, you'll be a fool forever.

    I love this advice. ..It prevents me from feeling stupid at the stupidest of times.

    My mother warned me when I was younger (like 17) if I kept on drinking I'd end up doing something really ******* stupid. I blew her off "Gosh mum... I'm not that stupid..."

    And eventually ended up doing exactly what she warned me against. *Sigh*

    Right now I can't think of any particular piece of advice that my parents gave me, but they are always teaching me things...

    'Learning languages is good'.

    Actually, I don't know if they ever said that. But my father failtaught me French for a couple of weeks when I was about 6. So possibly. :ninja:

    1. spend a penny save a penny (and now i'm rich wOoOoO)

    2. (when i was 10ish) 'ALWAYS wear a bra or you will have to kick your boobs out the way when your older'

    3. 'always smile when you're walking or your face muscles will change and leave you with a face like droopy when you're older' (now i constantly smile)

    4. when i was 5 : "NEVER sit on the toilet seat, if you have to sit on it, line it with A LOT of tissue" (2 years later i got into a lot of trouble at school for mass tissue wastage)

    1. If someone hits you son, hit him back twice as hard, twice as fast and twice as many times. Thank you dad :rolleyes:

    2. 'Don't do anything i wouldn't do.' Excuse to do what i want

    3. (This one is actually good) 'Do what makes you happy in your life, don't let anyone get between you and your ambition'
