if you could come back to life as any animal, what would you?
i would probably be a wolf. or cat. or bear. probably wolf though. im all about em. ;^,^;

would you live forever if you could?
i wouldn't. it would take all the meaning out of being alive, in many ways... accomplishment wouldn't exist, becuase whats the value in anything you do if the time you put into it isnt valuable? its kinda crazy if you think about it, but death is the only thing that really gives our life meaning.. becuase without it everything has no value.. becuase you have all the time in the world to do it, so it doesnt matter what you do. (open for discussion)

if you could, would you get rid of all modern technology and capability?
(like past 500 years.)
i would.. but what the eff do i know, im stuck in the past.

if had to choose between growing tree limbs out of your back (couldnt trim. would be sized fitting to you.) or have your skin turn to bark and go blind for an hour every time you cough.
id probably do the tree branch thing. i base this on absolutley nothing.

Ok, the animal question I thought about a lot a few years ago and I would like to be a dolphin. Their so smart and graceful.

I would not like to live forever. I don't think I could handle outliving all my friends and family. So it's purely for a selfish reason I wouldn't want to live forever.

I can't really decide on the third question and the fourth one is just plain too weird..

Well humans are animals ;)... BUT I guess you mean another type of mammal .. I would be a wooly mammoth so I could squish cave people. (Actaully I can't answer the question because I can't see the benefit of being one animal over another.)

If I was a mammoth I would want to live for ever so I could squish people for ever (Actaully living for ever is subjective so how can you say we don't.)

There are many great technologies, but I would say yes, get rid of them - we rely on them far too much.

Umm... I don't know about the whole tree thing. The bark sounds good.

1) That's a tough one - I've changed my mind several times over the years on what I would want to be - bird, fish, cat, etc. Right now, I'm leaning towards whale shark. Not many predators and the ability to actually view the depths, the really, really deep depths.

2) No, not forever - though it is tempting... But, I would like to live longer than the current average life span. I'm thinking 200-300 years would be nice. Though, it would all depend on the degradation of my body. I'd prefer not to just be a bucket of goo at 300 years of age.

3) No, but I would like cell phones to go away. There are certain technologies that I feel we would be better off without - though getting rid of all technology - that's too extreme even for me and I'm very old-fashioned.

4) Another tough choice - either having to sleep on my stomach to avoid being uncomfortable with back branches or being blind for an hour every so often... I'm glad I haven't had a cold/flu in years, but a cough while driving could be dangerous. Then again, getting into the car with branches sticking out of my back could put a crimp in the whole driving thing all together... Have to ponder that one some more. Niether is really that appealing.

Wait a minute... Are we working in dog, cat, horse or human years here??? It makes a difference (in case you were wondering.)

as for being an animal -- i think that i would like to be a cat, b/c they get to laze around all day not get in trouble for doing it

i really dont hink i would like to live for ever, but i you could.. you would get to travel all you want and take your time to actually look at things, i think

as for getting ride of modren technology.. sure why not... its not like its doing us any good anyways .. we arnt doing the environment any good, i mean youd think with the great new technology they would start makeing everything recycleable and making cars that run with water instead of gas.. i know its out there.. why arent they using it?? sorry i had to rant a little there

umm tree limbs going outta my back or being made of bark.. umm i think that i would like to have the limbs growing outta my back, b/c i would be blind like 20 hours of the day, i cough all the time which sorta sucks.. but yeah i would go with tree limbs (wired question)

A butterfly.

Yes, Think of the knowledge you could accumulate! :)

I am with Isa on this one, cell phone could go, but I would keep everything else...

Hmmmm, my initial reaction was to say the branches....but HOW big are these branches? I need more info....

proportional to your body. im 6' and change, so a 6' tree would have like 2' branches. umm so yea i guess a third your hieght.

i am right there with ya sister! i got real worked up thinking about it, too. what you said is prettymuch exactly how i feel (except i might be more x-treme in viewpoints)

good hustle team!
