Do you ever wish you were born a different species?
If so, which animal which animal would you want to be?

I would be a falcon, because I think it would be awesome to swoop down at 240 mph to catch my prey.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

But if you were born a falcon that would just be normal and boring. Then you might imagine that some aspect of being a human would be awesome.

I would want to be my own house cat owned by me. Jesus christ, I do everything for them. Their every want and desire is catered to, including opening the drapes in the afternoon so the perfect rays of sun shines in to make the perfect sun spots for them to lull around in. Geez, if I were my own house cat I'd be thrilled beyond belief.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

How do you know it's boring to them? Maybe they have a lot of fun while murdering other animals, just like people do. The human equivalent would be, umm... deer hunting with a wingsuit. I mean really, who wouldn't want to do that Cool

No, I'm happy being a reptilian overlord.
Shit, wasn't supposed to say that...


Seriously, I can't say I'd want to be another species but there are times I'd like to be able to experience what it feels like for a short time anyway.

I have had many a conversation at my cats on a similar topic.

They lead such enviously simple lives....
