Things They Don't Teach You in School Rocks!
Now here's a book that I wished I had in high school. I was a teen back in the 80s, and I was only taught the basics, like everybody else back then. Even in college you sometimes don't get enough information on how to survive in the real world. In fact, this world is full of lies, misinformation, and out rights scams. An 18 year old needs a book or many books, to help them avoid the pitfalls, that may lead to disaster!
Just look at all the young 18 year old males today, who have no clue how to manage their money or how to deal with credit cards. Sadly, when a young man enters the doors to college, there are ads all over telling him to get a credit card. And yet, unfortunately, the important stuff an 18 year old really needs is left to a crap shoot in life, that may not turn out well. Most parents let the school system teach the kids, but the parents who share information that they were never taught growing up are a rare breed. Today, give a kid some knowledge he can use, and when he learns it, he will look back and be eternally grateful, that someone took the time to invest in his life. Get this for some young lad's Birthday and give them the gift of a lifetime.
Metal Chess Pieces on Vertical Wall Mounted with Brown Traditional Frame is Amazing!
Has anyone ever sat down with you who is older and taught you Chess? If someone has, you are one of the lucky ones. Most 18 year old males are given strange cartoon-like looking Birthday cards and money for their Birthday, and then they blow it and throw the cards away. What was the lesson learned? Not much!
If you want an 18 year old to take on life with strategy, instead of listening to their peers and institutions who may be feeding them garbage, then start teaching them Chess today or buy them this incredible vertical wall mounted metal Chess game set.
It's beautiful and it will inspire the 18 year old to play the game. But really, why should you have an 18 year old learn chess? So they can learn how to solve problems and stay challenged mentally. Besides exercising the brain, improving memory, improving concentration, and increasing IQ skills, Chess really helps with foresight and planning. Do I need say more?
Time Capsule Anti-Corrosion Waterproof Stainless Steel is FANTASTIC!
When I was in high school no one ever even talked about a time capsule. In fact, I had to see one in a movie years ago. Sad right? How in the hell could I have missed something so cool and strange? I would have put some weird stuff in it and opening it 30 years later would have been great, if I wasn't dead!
Anyways, the movie I saw with a time capsule was called "Knowing" with the ever marvelous Nicolas Cage. The movie got a rating of 6.2 on IMDB.com, which is not too shabby for a Nicolas Cage movie.
Let's face it, his career has had more ups than downs then the biggest roller coaster in the world, which I think is called the "Kingda Ka" and it's located at the amazing Six Flags Great Adventure in beautiful Jackson, New Jersey. Back to the time capsule, I would strongly suggest getting an 18 year old male this for his Birthday, because it will give him something to do and it will give him something to look forward to, when times in life get tough.
A Beginner's Guide to Investing: How to Grow Your Money the Smart and Easy Way is AMAZING!
Now, this is vital to any young man's education! If you do not let an 18 year old male know about this, you are seriously putting him at a tremendous disadvantage!
Let me explain, I learned how to invest from a man who was quite wealthy back in the 90s and I was damn lucky he sat down to teach me, because my mom kindly asked him. In the early 90s I saved up and invested $1,000 in Verifone, which was the maker at the time of transaction machines, and still is today, but about a year later, when it made some money, I stupidly took it out and went with a buddy to Canada and partied like there was no tomorrow. Dumb right?
Giving a young man a book on investing, where he can learn about compounding interest, and how to make money by reinvesting it, is so wise! Most young people today are squandering their money on things you probably don't want to know about, but if you give them a book like this, they might read it and they might not, but no one can accuse you of not caring about their future. If you start investing young and keep reinvesting, who knows how much you'll have by the time you're 55 or 60. This book is the basics, and after this he can look into Angel Investing and maybe if he is not afraid of risk, try out Penny Stocks. Yes, there are guys making tons of money in Penny Stocks! Remember, in life it's not just about getting information, it's about getting the RIGHT information!
What You Should Know About Politics . . . But Don't!
If you don't want your 18 year old to be pulled in or fooled by other idiots who act like they know politics but don't, then you need this book. An 18 year old, unless they have been brought up in politics, is a sitting duck for morons and political manipulators.
Give an 18 year old a fighting chance, where they can make a solid decision on who to vote for and why. Too many young people today are being told how to think and feel, so get them ready for the debates and the insanity they will be facing.
Ask yourself this: How many young people are voting today? How many of them really think their vote would count? Look at the celebrities and all the other famous folks who are trying to get young people to vote .... It really is like pulling teeth, because most young people are confused and don't want to vote. Most think they can never make a difference, so let them read this book for their Birthday and decide for themselves!
College Hacks by Keith Bradford is OUTSTANDING!
An 18 year old that is told go to college and do the best they can, without an in depth pep talk is like sending a football player out to the field with no strategy, which I see a lot of coaches doing. In fact, a lot of coaches really suck with their strategies. Ha ha!
College time is a learning time, but it does not have to be a complete hell. When I was in college most of us were stressed out, and I was stressed myself. Why? Because I had a roommate who thought it was cool to dance around the room naked spraying hair spray on the wall with a lighter, laughing like a madman, and torching cockroaches.
I went to a University down in Virginia, so there were tons of cockroaches, and I was not ready for that! Anyways, if you buy an 18 year old this book, they will have a game plan about how to ace the next exam. In fact, there are all kinds of useful hacks to make college easier. I will never forget going up to a girl in English class, who was my dream goddess. I asked her out and she raised her hand and showed me she was engaged. What's the lesson I learned, besides wanting to jump off a cliff? Always check the freaking hands! See, I just gave away my own personal college hack!
Big Joe Roma Black Bean Bag Chair is AWESOME!
Almost every college student has to sit in some hard chair or some old freaking recliner that is ripped and smells like farts. Why not give an 18 year old a bean bag chair that will make them almost cry with joy. I'm talking a chair they can chill in while watching movies or playing video games.
When I was in college we sat on the floor in the dorm rooms ... it was pathetic, but that's life, or at least back then it was. Why have some poor young male sit in a Yoga posture, while the other dude is sitting in style and comfort on a soft heavenly chair?
It's possible to get an incredible chair for under a hundred dollars and hint, hint, you're looking at it's picture over on the left side of this paragraph. Imagine what your 18 year old will say and how they will feel, when they see you went the extra mile, and got them something they can brag about and feel pumped about. This is the ULTIMATE BIRTHDAY GIFT!
