    Default Would you clone yourself if you could? What would you do with a clone?

    See, I don't think I would, even if I could, clone myself because that would violate the code of the Highlander.
    I would just hate myself afterwards,lol.

    I wouldn't. The problem is when you clone yourself, your clone is either a baby or another human being. Which means you can't use either of those for slave labour without breaking some serious ethical boundaries that will likely get you arrested or murdered, by your clone! dun dun dun!, and/or ostracised from the community.

    Now...if I could build a robot with reasonably acceptable human features, the ability to make intuitive jumps when I give it commands (because if it wasn't able to do that, I would have to instruct it on every little thing possible--just like you must do when you program something...and that would only end up being tiresome micromanaging), and decently dexterous fingers.... Then I would just use it to file my taxes, fill out forms, make appointments...all the other stuff that is important but boring to do.

    And I would name it George... And it would say "Oui mademoiselle!" when called. It would be just a little bit snooty and sarcastic too....like all the cool "companions" in stories...

    I would probably try and beat in, or try and influence some of the characteristics that I don't have into my clone to see how different "I" would be. Conscientiousness and work ethic are two of the bigger traits that I think would be interesting to observe in my clone. I think it would be really interesting to see if it would make me hyper serious or if I would still have the same temperament.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    Hell yeah. many times over.
    What would you do with a clone?
    half of them would be superninja murderbots I'd brainwash to eliminate the undesirables. 2/5 of them to go and selectively reproduce to make a master race of people. The other 1/10 will comprise my harem.

    Nah. I love myself but I don't like myself that much. I'd drive myself crazy pretty quickly.

    Sure, I'd clone myself a few times. We could probably work well together and would have similar goals. (I'm assuming they would be same physical age. Not interested in raising baby clones unless I needed some spare parts. (Now there's an ethical dilemma.))

    If I had some clones:

    1. Start a company
    2. Clone porn?
    3. Start a magic act

    On second thought, I don't think I could handle the bizarreness of it.

    EDIT: FUCK YEAH CLONES

    Yeah Synarch, if you're going to try to seem cool online, pick one angle and ride it all the way to hell if you have to. Don't jump ship, ya F'n puss.
