    Okay, I reread the question. You say "beginning now", so I wouldn't be me, would I? My family wouldn't be the same. I wouldn't be born in the same decade and grow up with the same influences. I'd just be a completely different person. So, it is like reincarnation. I can't say that I would do it, not even if I retained my current knowledge. For one thing, I might be born into really crap circumstances. What if I was ugly or stupid or just whatever worse off than I am now? That'd make me feel like a real champ... Anyway, I'm too young to just throw in the towel and want to start over. If I'm 75 and life still really sucks, I might change my mind then.
    And I really feel that even if I was brought back to 1985, same everything, without my memories, life would turn out no different. How else would I know what to do differently?

    I got my smile from the sunshine,
    I got my tears from the rain.
    I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
    And a peacock taught me to be vain.
    A little owl in a tree so high,
    He taught me how to wink my eye.
    I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
    And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
    But the guy that lived two caves from me,
    He taught me how to love.

    ^This.

    And:

    The negatives have created me into me as well. If I had a choice to go back and do it over, I would rather choose to move forward into whatever is next around the bend in the road.

    Couldn't that have the potential though to become incredibly boring .. Don't get me wrong, i can see the advantages but the chance to progress in one sense wouldn't be there.

    If you died which partaking in Groundhog day .. Would you still come back the following day? Hmmmm Lol

    Yea I would be breaking into houses and stealing stuff and robbing banks. Only to wake up the next day and realize that I had nothing.

    If by reliving you mean not retaining memories and knowledge and doing things they way I did previously, then yes, I would.

    I've thought about this a lot, and I do think I would do it. if I started out with a clean slate, didn't know anything about the world, was just a normal baby growing up, I don't think I would give it a shot, but if I held the same knowledge, then I would.

    The problem I get to is wondering if things would have turned out any worse than they are now. I made so many mistakes as a child, and as a teen, and I wonder if given another chance they would be better. But if I don't have any knowledge, how would it be any different? There were so many points where my life was so close to going wrong, I would be slightly afraid they would go completely wrong. But at the same time, if I had the knowledge that I have now, I would have done better in school, and tried not to be such an ass.

    no, but ask me again when I'm dying... I might change my answer

    Yeah, the guy thinks he's a god at one point because he's committed suicide in every possible way and still wakes up in bed the next day at the same time each time he dies.

    It wouldnt be limiting for me, although its me, not for everyone I guess
