    Friday OT - Worst Advice You've Ever Received

    What is the worst advice you have ever received? From whom? Did you take it and later discover it was terrible, or did you know it was bad immediately?

    When I was about 10:

    "You have curly hair - you should really cut that short! You won't look at all like Bozo the Clown!"

    It took a year to fix that mistake.

    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Re: Friday OT - Worst Advice You've Ever Received

    Wasn't really advise, but one time a co-worker told a really lame and old joke. I didn't laugh. Co-worker then proceeded to tell me I didn't have a sense of humor.

    For some reason the more I thought about it, the more it ****** me off. I don't even remember WHO it was now - but I remember thinking then -that that is one of the worst things a person ever said to me.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    How about, "Take ISU and the points - no way Baylor covers the spread."

    Oh this is great. I told my buddy this the year Royce and Co lost. He bet a pretty penny on it and was not too pleased with me.

    For what it's worth Angie, I think curly hair rox. The Jennifer Aniston look is getting a little old...

    Her? Nah, go for it. Just because she's the wrestling team manager doesn't mean she's slept with the entire team.

    Thanks. I figure I can't fight nature, so just embrace the ringlets. It's so terrible on hair to use all of the flat irons and such every single day, and plus curls are unique these days!
