    Many of us have issues with ourselves in one way or another, physically, emotionally, whoteverly. Which leads to the question asked in the comic...

    If yeu DID have a "restart" button on yeur body... would yeu press it?

    How much would yeu be willing to reset, if anything? Body? Mind? Memories? Would yeu be willing to live yeur life over again, or do yeu want it pretty much the same but with a few things yeu'd just really rather change about yeurself? Would yeu be willing to give up everything yeu are, in the hopes of maybe getting another chance to attain everything yeu COULD be?

    It's deep stuff for a single, simple question. So whot would yeu do? Would yeu press the button?
    I've made some bad choices in my life that probably will affect me for the next couple of years. Right now the best I can do is focus on the future, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to make the choices again with the knowledge and experience I have now.

    I'd edit a scene here or there, but otherwise keep it as is.

    But I also want to change my body so I could have a 500% more efficient digestive system and energy levels without having to have a very high metabolism like those ESTPs - I wouldn't want to have to take a dump more than once a day LOL. And a faster cell-dividing ability would be nice to heal from injuries. I wouldn't mind being able to cut off a limb and have it grow back in a very short amount of time...wait this sounds familiar (that's basically wolverine, isn't it?). I wouldn't mind having wings either. It would be nice to have reflexes and instinctual brain processing that is 500% faster than an average human. And I wouldn't mind having some kind of input port to my brain from which I could plug in some kind of biological cyborg device to aid in memory processing and learning information through fast thought-pushing. It would be cool to breath underwater as well. It would be nice to consciously control whether or not I want to reproduce, but still enjoy sex regardless. Super strength would be good too. I think that would do. That's not asking too much.

    No I'd not restart or reset, when I've occasionally lost in life I've not lost the lesson and its kind of important, if I'd not got terrible memories of mistakens maybe I'd do similar things in the future. That's just memory.

    I would, if there was and I could use it, select "very easy" mode for life or get some cheats to give me infinite power ups or something.

    I might like a restart button, like on your computer, where all the software and files are still there, but you can just reboot afresh. Although I guess that's like a good night's sleep...

    I'd probably hit it but more out of wondering what other experiences there are rather than dislike of my current one. A full restart might be the same as suicide though... Circumstances would probably play a huge role. If I could keep my memories then it's almost a definite yes. If not I wouldn't' be able to build on anything...

    It's kind of a hard question to answer.

    Yes, there are things I would do differently.
    But the road I took to get here -- as messy as it was -- has made me who I am.
    How am I to know who I would have been otherwise?

    Maybe very different.
    Maybe the same.

    I would hope that while details changed on a reboot, the outcome would still remain similar. I have a few big things in my life where I wish I had gone down a different road way-back-when; those things I'd definitely like to change and I might have been a lot happier now if I had taken those roads then. So I'd reset my body, start over, take a different road than I did far earlier; and I'd reset things related to that in the process.

    But as far as my kids? They're the one real block against wanting to change things. I love them; I love who they are; and I love having them in my life. If I could change my physical form and my LTRs, without losing my kids... yes, I'd do it.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
