This sage wisdom is basically what I plan to tell my kids (and wish someone had told me before I dumped 8 years of my life and many thousands of $ into post-secondary):
"I didn't know shit about shit when I went to college. If I had to do it over again, I would have taken a year off after high school and volunteered in a developing country to 1) lose ten pounds from intestinal parasites, 2) get my priorities straight (after having lost the ten pounds) and 3) separate myself from external influence. But I didn't. I had no idea what I wanted out of college - all I knew is that I was there and I had to do well or else, because that is the way I am programmed."
And, as a bonus to weight-loss, there's also lots of good evidence now that parasites help maintain a happy balanced immune system.
