    To compliment the recent "Best Advice" thread, I thought it would be a good idea for the worst advice you've received. Include one or two pieces of pathetic shooting advice, and one or two cases of other bad advice on other subjects, just to keep it fun and light.

    Mine are:
    1. Trap shooting is no fun, this from a skeet shooter.
    2. Skeet shooting is no fun, this from the cousin of the idiot in question 1.

    Other.
    1. Once you take the cloths off a woman, they all look the same, this from the 2nd cousin of the two idiots above.

    Worst advice- from an old accountant I knew years ago- 'fancy those propeller heads listing their Google search engine on the stock exchange, it's just a fad, the next strong breeze will blow them away!

    My first stock purchase: From a Broker, buy "Pan American," it's sure to go up. I did, it didn't.

    About trap shooting: One eye shooting is OK. Not........

    There isn't enough bandwidth on the internet to contain all the bad advice being given out.

    Don't worry about it, that problem will fix itself!

    If it aint broke, don't fix it!

    Why should you always take the responsibility, Let someone else do it!
