Since I rarely take advice from the living, I don’t know why I would suddenly be seeking it from some dead guy.
Most advice is non-specific and therefore useless anyway. Things like
– stop worrying
– quick, think of something!
– be happy
– find some time
– stop thinking about it
– don’t laugh, don’t cry, don’t fall asleep
– calm down
Hah. Easy for you to say.
But I guess if my arm was being twisted and I HAD to come up with some historical person PLUS think of some kind of recommendation that I might actually pay attention to, my choice for all that would be a chat with Nostradamus.
I would ask him what I should be doing to prepare for the end of the world in December of 2012.
And if his advice was “stop being such a flaming idiot”, I would take that as a good sign.
