RE: Do you ever wish you were born a different species?
No but I wonder if there was any possibility that I could've been born another specie at another time on maybe another planet

I could dig being the largest predator on Earth with the largest brain on the planet.

The sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus), or cachalot, is the largest of the toothed whales and the largest toothed predator.

Mature males average at 16 metres (52 ft) in length but some may reach 20.5 metres (67 ft), with the head representing up to one-third of the animal's length. The sperm whale feeds primarily on squid. Plunging to 2,250 metres (7,380 ft) for prey, it is the second deepest diving mammal, following only the Cuvier's beaked whale. The sperm whale's clicking vocalization, a form of echolocation and communication, may be as loud as 230 decibels (re 1 µPa at 1 m) underwater, making it the loudest sound produced by any animal. It has the largest brain of any animal on Earth, more than five times heavier than a human's. Sperm whales can live for more than 60 years.

No, I rather like being human.

He gets fed well, does no work, gets to play all day with the kids and his friends, go surfing now and then, sees all his friends every morning on his walks, sleeps when he wants ... sheesh, I should have it so good.

Yabut, then you have to eat raw squid. Gasp

RE: Do you ever wish you were born a different species?
Not really. While other species have incredible abilities, I can only know that because I am human. I may never know what the rest of the electromagnetic spectrum looks like to a goldfish, but I can understand we see different things. I couldn't do that if I were a goldfish.
Put simply, while I'd like to have some abilities other species possess, to actually become those other species would be pointless, because it would take away my ability to know what amazing abilities I (would) have.

The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

I was thinking the same thing, a spoiled dog would be great.

I kind of like the wild horses on the Outer Banks, beach life, peaceful, protected. Sea turtle or a dolphin might be cool too. Turtle gets the best of the land and sea life, dolphins are intelligent and play just for fun...I would love to be able to do flips and jumps in the water!
