I definitely agree with you here. I have had the "Do you have any regrets?" conversation and really, my answer is "No I don't". Like you, there are a few moments in my life where 20/20 hindsight shows me I probably could have made some better decisions. But really, no one has ever been hurt or killed by a decision I made. I have never ripped anyone off. I have never done anything that would cause someone in my life to walk away from me and say "I am done with you". So yeah, I am with you, no regrets.

Gainfully - Questionable
51 year old white male oozing privilege and advantage, if you find that sort of thing sexy.
But, I care about the less fortunate if you don't,
Either way I'm an idiot so take it all with a grain of salt.
Bragging rights
Spent a summer in Antarctica. Got set on fire on a train ride across Korea. Took a drunken bus ride across Turkey. Managed to live thru it all.
