Do my best to delay Mary Elizabeth Winsteads birth so she’d be my age… We’d totally be hooked up.

There are numerous choices I regret, but I don’t think I’d want to be able to go back in time to change anything. This would cause a cascade effect I’m not sure I could live with and make future decisions too easy to not choose carefully.

I shouldn’t have seen the Matrix reloaded premier, that day my life changed forever, I should have stayed working instead of going :s I’m still facing the consequences…

Are you talking about in our personal lives or in history?
If you are referring to personal, I don’t know if I would change anything. I have made a lot of mistakes but they are learning experiences.
If you are talking about historically, I would go back and make sure Hitler would have never came in to power.

hmm… I’d go back to the moment my first crush made her move and ask her out instead of stepping back to think and watch another guy asked her out 2 seconds before I would have…

One or two wrong turns that took some time to get over or come to terms with, I might change, given the chance.

There are a few….. Stopping Bush from winning in Florida in 2000 tops the list.
America and the World would have been so much better off with Al Gore!
If we only knew how bad it could get…..

Go back and change everything that you lot changed so nothing had changed.

One event? Mhmm…give me more time heh.

On a global (history) scale: No gunpowder.

On a local (personal) scale: I would have never had that first cigarette.

I wish I’d been nicer to my parents, growing up. I’m trying to make it up to them.

All I can say is it involved a nun, a notebook and a piece of chalk. Oh, you can bet I’d change that day.

Great movie, but now that you mention it, I wonder what would have happened if I could change what I mentioned above….

If it were possible (and it isn’t), I would have attempted to prevent the execution of Jesus Christ.

I would change many of the stupid things I’ve done; hard to pick just one…

World-wise…really have to think about that one. Good question…I’ll be back.

I don’t want to change anything in the past because if I will, I know I will not end up where I am now. My life may not be perfect but I am fine with how everything turned out. If I could go back in time, I would just love to go back to the moments I had fun and re-live those moments again even just for a few moments… hahaha!

I would wait to get married and to give birth to my wonderful son until I was old enough to be a really super parent. Giving birth at 19 meant he was deprived of so much . . . a mature mom would have given him a better boost in life. I guess 38 would be the age I’d do it in a future life. And I’d want the same son I have!
