A blast from the past
A second chance. Who hasn’t dreamt about having a second chance at least once in their life?
As the years go by, it’s only natural to look back on the time gone by and remember our younger years fondly. Was your childhood a happy time that you’d want to relive? Or are you perfectly content with your current age, situation, and future?
For many, a chance to redo their mistakes, go back to spend time with loved ones, or even just to enjoy the innocence of youth all over again is a tempting dream. So what if you really could do it?
Better yet: What if you could relive your childhood but with the full memories of your adult life until now, knowing everything you already know?
People were asked what they’d do in this movie plot of a scenario, and it might just make you wish you could time travel…
Sit my parents down and, while trying to explain that their child has not been possessed by a demon with a vocabulary and knowledge exceeding their 5 year old child’s, insist they invest heavily in Microsoft, then a bit later Apple, then a little later Google. If they didn’t I’d have a tantrum and not eat all the food on my plate. (solertai)
Pretend to be a child prodigy and have potential. Get scholarships and research grants. Disappoint everyone by the time I’m 18. Do some book tours and speeches at places with too much money. Buy a beach house/bar in a tropical third world country. Be happy this time around. (lor_de_jaja)
Internally scream at the prospect of having to go through 12+ years of school all over again. (MorganWick)
Dude. It would take like 6 if you kept the knowledge of 12 years. (Brodoof)
More clever plans this way…
