Yes, I reckon that all I've learnt over the years wouldn't help at all...... :lol:

Only if I knew then what I know now.......having retired last year after 47 years at the same job I'm doing O.K. My health is borderline. but I am able to walk and move about pretty well. I have less than half the strength I did even 20 years ago. Every day is a Gift and a challenge . I'm Blessed in so many ways.

I have perfected time travel.
I need a companion that knows how to set a perimeter and defend it.
If you want to travel with me, meet me last Thursday.

I didn't screw up as a teenager; my biggest screw-up was when I was 28, and decided to become a Family Physician instead of remaining a Pharmacist....that decision cost me several million dollars in lifetime earnings, and I'll never be able to 'retire', as I'm in my 60's and have a negative net-worth due to what 'Obamacare' and our ridiculous insurance system did to health care and anyone who didn't play the game of 4-minute-visits and unnecessary-procedures.

However.....I think I helped more people and did more good for the world as it is. Plus, I would never have lasted under the administrators and bosses brave guys like Piller and my former pharmacy school classmates have to endure - I'd probably mouth off and be fired on the first day.

Maybe a middle path could have been worked out where I had the balls to NEVER accept 'insurance payment' for my services; that is like a gourmet restaurant agreeing to accept 'free meal' coupons White Castle printed up... :roll: Unfortunately, I capitulated and compromised and kept hoping the 'system' would get better.... :?

C'est la vie.... :D I'm blessed in so many other ways. If I obsess any more about 'materialism' and 'money', I'll turn in to a liberal progressive Democrat.... :shock:

Now, if I could go back to 20 or so, with what I know now!!! Probably would have made different dumb things than the ones I did!!

Of course I guess anyone who could 'go back' 24 hours or so could just find the winning Powerball number, and buy the right ticket; for those of us whose main 'mistakes' were financial, that would completely reset things...!

Sadly, the majority of people have marital woes, kids on drugs, depression, terrible jobs or mean coworkers, chronic illnesses or chronic pain or cancers to deal with, or other things that have no simple solution time-travel would solve. In my line of work, like many others here who do health-care, law-enforcement, clergy, and other 'public service' things, we see so much of that every day. :| One of the most rewarding things as a human is when you can help someone deal with such life-changing situations.

I often think "what if?"

I've made mistakes. Some big ones. But they many times were followed... maybe not immediately... by major blessings.

If I could fix the things where I'd hurt and disappointed people and still keep the blessings that the Lord has showered on me since...

But the ones where nobody but me got the worst of it... I'd leave those bits of wonderful fun alone. :wink:

If I changed a few of the worst choices, I might not have met some of the best choices. It is tough to say what could have been changed without causing me to miss out on the better things.

I still dont know what I want to be when I grow up. When I was a kid in third grade in a one room school our teacher asked everyone what they wanted to be or do when they grew up. I guess I was a wise azz. I said I want to be a crook. My three year older sister ran the two miles home crying and told our folks I was going to be a crook!

You didn't realize that you were listening to it on the radio or TV? Superman was from Krypton. Get Ready was a rare earth song. Sodium is in salt. Chlorine is in the pool. I could go on, but it would start to get really boring.
