    I'd have been a school-refuser.
    I'd refuse one-to-one tuition too.
    I'd listen to no one who caused me cynicism, concern, consternation or confusion.
    I'd listen to know one who pretended to be okay.
    I'd spend all of my time looking for people in distress,
    and offering them my servitude.

    Maybe I should give it more time before deciding whether to jump in?

I've recently realized this thing is going somewhere and am getting into it late in life.

    Lots, I think any man who doesn't is a fool.

    What I would change depends on if you talk to the old man or the new man.

    If you talk with the old man there are couple of girls I should of got more entangled with, if you talk with the new man there are a couple less.

    There is the obviously sin less answers. But the big one is trust God more, earlier and fuller.

    Well, if I could step back in time, I would absolutely marry my ex again because, if it were not for him, I would not have been blessed with my two oldest children.

    I have been blessed with the grace of God, and I wouldn't want to press His patience any further by trying to do things over!

    That's an interesting take on it!

    I'm guessing you are divorced?

    Take the topic above and run with it! Slice it, dice it, give us your general thoughts about it. Everyday there will be a new TOL Topic of the Day.
    If you want to make suggestions for the Topic of the Day send a Tweet to @toldailytopic or @theologyonline or send it to us via Facebook.
    The only thing that I would do differently is try harder in school. I failed school badly, not because I wasn't capable but because at the time I couldn't be bothered to try. Right now I'm in the situation I can't afford to go back and get the qualifications I need.

    The reason why there is so little I would do differently is because I know that the person I am is the sum of my past experiences. I've learned from all of my past experiences - the good, the bad and the ugly. God has taken me from that and formed me into the person He wants me to be. If I'd lived life differently, I wonder what person I would have become?

    Almost everything, with the exception of meeting my wife and having our kids---and, of course, all of this assumes that I would have a completely different personality!

    I would do exceptionally in high school; earn awesome scholarships; attend Oxford University; write a novel before the age of twenty-five; save money from every paycheck I ever received in order to build a substantial savings at a relatively early age; exercise and eat well over the entire course of my life (this would really require a different personality), etc., etc., etc.

    Getting older is a curse.

    Well, we had a lot of French here at one point, but they wouldn't talk to anyone else...the Brits have more important things to worry about, like dental insurance...we couldn't keep the Germans from posting in ALL CAPS so they had to go...Australians have the right sense of humor to make it here. I knew it the moment I saw what you people call bears.

    Do Americans think that hosting other nations as friends is worth while.
    Americans are like Democrats or snowflakes without all the snow. What I mean is that it's nearly impossible to find two of us that actually think alike, at least when you start in on details, which bores half of us to begin with...

    All our famous beings from down under tend to end up living on your famous soil! As feathers in your cap!
    Same thing with Canadians, though they mostly do it to escape the French among them and to live free, call bacon what it is, that sort of thing.

    Over here where I live, the radio stations reminded us to extend a warm welcome to our international guests!
    Here they mostly remind us to stock up on ammo.

    One of those in changeable things. As a person as a nation
    I love an optimist.
