It's no fun if you can't change history.

Actually, everything you do potentially changes your life so even if it was something like "be more confident" it could still have major consequences.

What I'd tell myself is private. I doubt it'd actually change anything as I knew before and it didn't change anything. One lives in hope but hey ho. Actually, no point cos it's too late.

I might have advised myself to study harder, or work out what I want to do with my life. Or go to more careers training, go to college or something. Or just tell myself that giing a F*** is not worth it.

Choose a different football team to support.  All that youthful optimism, that one day we'd make it into the first division, it will never happen

Hmm, I'm not sure there's much I could tell them, as they'd be too busy pissing them laughing....

"Say what?  Oh, you're from the future are you?  Oh, and you're a future version of me?  Yeah, sure you are mister.  Bwah ha ha!!!! Now bog off and let me get back to eating my sweets"

That humiliating 800 metres you are going to do when you are 14 where you get lapped?  Don't worry about it.  Give it 10 years and you'll be killing it.

On that note...

The handstand you did in the school playground on the day you forgot to put your knickers on, didn't come back to haunt you.

You would have thought a teacher would know better

If it can't change history then what's the point? If anything it'll just cause distress as the younger me will go through things knowing what will happen but unable to act to avoid nasty stuff

I would have told myself not to give up on a career, just because the one you were geared up towards didn't work out.  Also, to have got into property developing before the prices went up.

I s'pose knowing in bad times that things work out would be positive. It could go the other way though so I'd have to choose carefully.

Nothing.... because I would not have listened

At 10yo I thought knew everything, but as I have got older I have realised that I know f. all.

No matter how much you know, or think you do, you are only scratching the surface of any subject. There is always more to know.

So, I would say that I should remember that God gave you two ears and only one mouth because he intended that you should listen twice as much as you speak.

And of course in the year 2000 nothing will happen! We will not be buzzing around in flying cars. The world will not end. The evils of the world will still be evil. We will not be living on the moon. The 'system' will still be corrupt.

Behave yourself, be honest, polite and take advice. Its going to work out fine.


 And appreciate any luck you may have.

Less comfort eating, more physiotherapy.
