Take your time to close your eyes and let your imagination fly... Year: 197_. Mount Temple is over for Adam, David, Paul and Lawrence, who are eighteen-year-old lads. Their lives have been, so far, pretty much the same, i.e., Larry looking for young people to form a band ... but that search was not successful.
So .... what do you think the lads would be doing right now, professionally speaking?

Ideas? Options? I would really like to hear something from fans!
Thanks in advance for taking part in this game!  ;)

Edge was always Dave, not David  ;)

I remember reading that Larry worked for an oil company - could see him being an excutive.

Edge would have continued his science studies - I could see him being scientist or a teacher

Bono - have to go with Actor

Adam - Modeling agent or photographer

Larry would have been middle management at some Blue Chip company - well respected for his "no B/S attitude"

Bono would be an Investment Banker before moving into politics and running for the Irish Presidency

Edge would have moved into science or technology - perhaps something to do with Microsoft?

Adam would definitely have been a model or photography

I think that regardless of which field they would have chosen, all 4 of them would have been successful. They are all ambitious, hard working people.

Bono would have been fired for taking 6 years to get mundane tasks done in his job.

I think Bono would get an English/Literature degree and be a teacher...

Edge working as an engineer in some top rated company.

Larry would be a construction worker or some manual labor.

Adam'd be still living with his parents.

Imagine if Bono showed up to work with sunglasses on everyday or Edge with his beanie. Bono might be able to get away with it with a medical excuse but not Edge.
