'The Biggest Choice Of Your Life'

I hate having to make choices, but i sometimes have to make somesmiley - winkeye.

I keep getting told that choice X is the most important choice i will make in my life;

does this mean that with every choice we make, the next one will be a higher level of importance, so making the one you are deciding over pointless?smiley - huh

or;
does it mean that the choice you make is the most important choice in your life - At that Moment? (that doesn't seem to make sense reallysmiley - biggrin!)

or;
Maybe people say that to make you feel like that choice will make a difference - when it might only be a insignificant difference.smiley - erm

I can't help thinking that each single choice cannot affect your life so much, it's more a series of choices that lead up to the place you are in, what you do and the person you aresmiley - ok.

Question No.1

This is a very serious subjectsmiley - doh, i didn't know whether to start a conversation about it in the 'Ask H2G2' bit, or write a journey entry about itsmiley - headhurts. so, as you might have guessed i'm doing the latter.smiley - biggrin

now, to the question:
If you have an entry smiley - biro in Peer Review, or the Alternative Writing Workshop or anything like that, and no-one has said anything about it for a few days, is it a really dirty trick to just type something like 'Any more comments' or just simply a smiley - smiley so that it will go to the top of the list and people will notice it?

i did it once and felt really guilty afterwardssmiley - erm

SPsmiley - winkeye

PS if no-one answers i'll put this in 'Ask H2G2'smiley - ok
