I'm pretty sure that most people would send smething inspiring: "Think positive. Be yourself. It'll turn out OK"
Or: "Yes, that dark haired girl in your class. Future wife"
Or: "Study hard. You'll make it"
Me, it'll be none of these. The message that goes back to 1980 is this:
"Remember that joke?"
"What joke you bearded idiot?"
"The one that goes 'What's the worst thing in the world? Recycled toilet paper'"
"Yeah, that's a cracker."
"Out of a cracker, more like. Stop laughing. I'm from the future. Civilisation is doomed and recycled Toilet Paper is where it's at."
"Stock up, son. Stock up."
