Give me some advice.

Kind of feel like I could use some.

Don't eat yellow snow.

But seriously, gonna need to be a lot less vague.

Work like you dont need money
Love like you've never been hurt
Dance like nobody is watching.

I always liked this one, because it is nonsense bordering on zen:

"The orange is the sun- everything else is the clock."

If I can add a few more:

See a therapist.

Twitter is not reality.

Go for the spicy food.

Know your own biases and make sure you keep them in check.

Consent is not limited to sexual activities.

Apathy can help you survive a moment, but empathy will keep you human.

Never respond right away when a delayed option is available, especially when you're being goaded.

Learn to cook and never stop learning to cook new things.

Futility is not necessarily a reason to not do something, but know when a futile act is meaningful rather than a stroking of the ego.

Be wary of those you only know online. We give terrible advice.

Get an attorney.

Remember that people are not their worst moment, nor their greatest triumph, nor even some grand moment in between; that each person is a collections of thousands of experiences and that you'll never really know them no matter how hard you try, though they may be willing to give you a real chance at it.

You have to get on a regular sleeping schedule. I know it sucks having a bed time, but as adults we have to have a solid bedtime. Nothing ruins the next day more than not enough sleep.

Also soft ambient sound, I recommend rain on windshield music, and some warm milk before bed. Also at least for me I keep a small fridge in my room with bottled water so when I wake up in the middle of the night, I don't have to blind myself in the kitchen searching for water, I have my little no-light fridge with crisp water.

Also also never trust the Word Bearers. They're the fuck ups of the Galaxy

I just broke my floor lamp because of you! D:<

Can confirm not really. I was watching.

Buy land, they're not making anymore.

Alright, give him the stick.

DON'T GIVE HIM THE STICK!

Johnny Novgorod:

Have you spoken to the Chinese? They're building islands all over the place for landing strips.

They're just following the Dutch model for gaining land

The Netherlands don't really exist, that's just German propaganda.

Don't ask for advice on the Internet.

Winners use condoms. Be a winner.

Glarthir is crazy.

Love with your mouth shut, help without breaking your ass or publicizing it, keep cool but care.

If you need to dry your clothes fast before you go out, throwing them in the dryer with a dry towel can get them dry faster.

Make it look like an accident. Don't buy the tarp, hacksaw and trash bags all on the same day.

Never obtain your life values from a 'motivational' picture posted on the Internet. It will have been written by someone just as vapid and soulless as you.

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, chances are it's a Greater Mimic.

While "It's better to ask for forgiveness rather than ask for permission" sounds great in principal, strangely it carries very little weight with a jury.

If there is someone in your life that you care about, tell them. Life is too short not to.

Ignore everything in this thread. Including this.

How can you use my advice if you have no hands? In fact, you don't even exist.

Don't expect to win against cheaters by playing by the rules.

Never let emotion and anxiety get the better of you.

I'm either an addlebrained simpleton who's easily amused or I'm still drunk from last night. Likely both. Either way, my split sides say these comments win the internet for today.

You can shut it down, fellas; we're done here.

If it's stupid, but it works, then it isn't stupid.

Squilookle:
Alright, give him the stick.

DON'T GIVE HIM THE STICK!

You're not my dad!

Elvis Starburst:

Clearly. Otherwise the advice would have been "Ask your mom if you can give him the stick".

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.

+200 year old Europeans would beg to differ.

If your problem can be quantified as an A/B situation, make a list of pros and cons. This is the time to be honest.

Fairly straightforward; put the pros under one side, cons on the other. Assign points to the value of any points you think necessary. Then walk away for at least 24 hours and revisit your list to determine if any of your points made could or should be revised. At the end, add the points up.

Or skip the points. Some items might be so important that you can't just arbitrarily assign a numerical value to it. Failing that, I say:

Don't eat the ye--

Xprimentyl:

But seriously, gonna need to be a lot less vague.

Damn.

Okay then. Ever play roulette?

I think this is going to help me a lot. Thank you.
