The One Thing The Last 12 Months Has Taught You


Recommended Posts

Okay every year you learn hundreds of new things,and experience hundreds of life changing events (a bit phillosophical for me, I know).

So....whats the 1 lesson have you learnt this year that will stick with you.

Mines probably, not to get into tag-team drinking competitions on holiday, and whatever you do, dont run a tab while your doing it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dont buy cars without ABS, and if you do dont drive them in the rain like you do have ABS.

If your girlfirend thinks you spend too much money on your car.... get another girlfirend.

If you get drunk and a woman offers herself to you dont turn her down because you want to go and get a kebab :lol:

Women come and go, but your mates will be there forever! :)

Give your loved ones a hug now and then because you never know how long your've got left with them.

Never used www.confused.com for an insurance quote because their system quotes wrong on imports.

which brings me onto....

Never buy an import.

1. Don't let Honda owners with replica firearms come to a meet in the grounds of a stately home.

2. Never under estimate the mental anguish and financial implications of having a wild mouse hiding in your home.

3. Raleigh don't provide a tool with their bikes to assemble them (found this out at 11pm on Xmas Eve).

4. Don't put a retail purchase onto a new credit card with an interest free balance transfer option.

5. Watching your 4 year old daughter in her school Xmas play can make a grown man cry (and costs nothing).

6. The realisation that Lexus will never bring out a Mk2 IS and even if they do I won't be able to afford it anyway.

7. My house earns more than me.

8. Gold is the way to go :thumbsup:

that accupuncture really DOES work. :thumbsup:

dont live with backache or neckache etc. - it can be fixed (sure it costs £25 a time but the NHS is pants and it is better to pay than visit the doctors loads of times and still get nowhere).

Hmmm, great topic Dave...

And some good answers to...

I guess the things I will take away from this year are:

Going with the flow isn't always the best idea...

There are concequeces to every action, regardless how harmless it seems...

And the most important...

Dont let your girlfriend go to another country to work...

Never buy an import.

:lol:  :thumbsup:

Ill second that....

thats the main thing i learned - also never buy a rare import they be even worse....


I'm on my 4th jap import, I have never had any problems at all...

AS for rare ones.. car I've got nows not common, never had any problems with it ever (that are to do with the car, or the fact its an import, just that I bought rubbish turbos)

did I mention not to ever use universal turbos?
