Wil Wheaton's Advice Inscribed in a High School Graduate's Yearbook


Anne Wheaton, the wife of celebrity geek and Star Trek: The Next Generation star Wil Wheaton, writes: 

Wil was asked to sign the yearbook of a boy who just graduated from high school. He added a little extra something.

All of this is good advice to high school graduates. I would also suggest not attempting to perform a Kolvoord Starburst unless you're a master pilot.

Well, I'm not sure how I would compare the value of money versus kindness, but I think that having money is totally awesome.

My advice to graduates would include the statement "make as much money as you possibly can."

I'm glad to see No.7 in there. When I was young, I valued strength and prowess. As I get older, I valued wealth as being most important. Now, I value kindness above all.

It's been my experience that the best way to have your advice ignored is to use an opening remark similar to what Wil uses here. It goes along with the old joke "In my days...". But as for the effort, well, I guess Wil gets an A+ for attempting to encourage people, and if nothing else, perhaps it will be worth something as a curio one of the days.

(not a big Wil Wheaton fan, if it's not clear)
