The only one I could knock off a probably common list is I've never been married and probably never will.

Does having kids count as one, or does each kid count separately?

Cafe Threads: Six impossible things before breakfast.


♫ And I said "what about breakfast at Milliways?"
She said, "I think I've done six impossible things
And as I recall, I deposited a penny"
And I said, "Well, that's the best thing we've got"

I had two chances to die when I was a baby but didn't take them. Big mistake.

I've made major wrong decisions, but lately, it's the corporal wrong decisions that I most regret.

STEP AWAY FROM THE CHEESECAKE, BRAP!

Given the chance, I would definitely take a do-over at the post-secondary education experience.

I did not make the best choices and those student loans f*cked me up for a good long time.

It'd be interesting if I could compare results somehow too.

I've made one good financial decision in my lifetime, which will outweigh a lot of screw ups.

Buying a house in 2009 (right after the financial crash); specifically the one I purchased.  I paid $150k.  Somebody else paid $400k in 2005 (and got foreclosed upon; I bought it from the bank).  It's now worth about half a million or so.

I don't know if it was necessarily wrong, but I left a job prior to vesting my stock options which are now worth greater than $4 million. I don't think I'd be a happy lazy stay-at-home stockholder.

If you asked me 10 years ago - maybe.

But right now? All of my boneheads, blunders, and general stupidity got me to the point I am. It is not perfect by a far stretch and could be better, but *looks around*, Yeah, I'm good. Thanks.

Me, I have done really stupid crap in the first half of my life. I looked at myself and decided that I have to change my ways. That has made me what I am now. I do not want to undo what wrongs I have done because it would undo what I am now. Also, what an adventure that crap has taken me on. I would do it all again in a seconds decision.

Good answer. My X wife always thinks about how her life would be different if only she had....anything, and won't shut up about it. These whiners are victims and not warriors. JC, let me introduce you to my MIL.

I sold AAPL at 85 and Amazon at 50-ish.

Made good money on both of those but wish I had held on to them, they'd be worth about $10 million now. Whoops.
