    If you could change one thing about your life..

    What would it be?

    Mine would be that I was musically gifted...For someone who loves music as I do ,it's almost unfair that I can't sing or play a lick.

    In as much as nothing is perfect and any changes to the life we now are living cannot be known a different life may be worse than the one you are living. There are things I would like to be better at (like you music). But what if a new you produced a musical prodigy that like Mozart dies at a very young age? Or a brilliant mind like Stephen Hawkings and were unable to perform the most basic personal functions?

    No, I am me for all my warts and failures but I wouldn't want to be anyone else.

    I agree, you have no idea what would happen if you could change something signifigant. I am happy where I am right now. If, say you were to change your financial situation, like becoming a millionaire at 30, what else would change? Maybe you would get bored and start doing drugs and end up dead at 40.

    Too many variables.

    The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.

    Would not been a young dumbass who ended up in prison and bearing the mark of Cain. I would of been accepted by the Army (instead of rejected when I tried in 2008), but then again, perhaps I would of bled out in some foreign land?

    I'm honestly happy with my life. Any mistakes that I've made I've learned from so I wouldn't change anything like that. I guess if I could change anything it would be my allergy to mountain cedar. When it blows I feel terrible & it blows for 3 or 4 months a year.

    That is the least flattering avatar you used yet. Can’t see your face, your hair or your clothes.
