What do you do when the mini-you grows up and starts wearing short skirts and sleeping with men? I would be horrified to watch myself grow into a little tart. I'd be yelling at myself all the time, telling me what to wear, etc...

I'd also be telling me what I should have majored in for college. I wouldn't want me making the same mistakes over again.

I really don't have a problem with short skirts. But I know you have a problem with shorts from another thread. What's the deal? Do you have ugly legs or what??? BTW - YOU are the one who started this thread! Would you prefer I not respond? Are you implying I am a tart??? What's wrong with you???

Imagine. You could basically repeat your childhood through another human being who had the exact same genetic material as yourself.

And for us single women, this could be the ideal situation. Now we can spend our Holidays with ourselves, giving ourselves the best Christmas ever.

What do you think?
LOL, what an idea.....well, if I did that, I'd make real sure I wouldn't repeat the bad stuff....hehehehe, talk about a new lease on life, or is that leaf?

Hugs....

I just had a conversation with my daughter and her best friend the other day about genetic engineering. I shared how I thought it would be wrong (assuming it was actually possible) to pick your children. It's much too much of a blessing taking what God surprises you with.

HOWEVER........ it's intriguing to think about raising yourself! Would you turn out just the same... better... worse. Certainly could put some spins on nature vs nurture.

Um, not sure how I stumbled into that one, but I plead the fifth...

I think I would turn out superb! I would have no problems with myself. I think it would be great to have a chance to do it all again the right way! ... I'm not sure how I'd react though, if, for instance, I caught myself smoking pot or going out drinking or making out with boys at a young age. I'd have to encourage myself to follow a better path, study hard, and excel on all levels... I'm like to see me get into a good college this time around.

I've always wished I could raise myself because I know, better than anyone, how I could have successfully steered myself towards my full potential. Instead of being ordinary, I'd be totally awesome by now.

What a crazy idea! If I didn't need to raise myself from childhood.... this cloning stuff might just work for me. Here's how. Instead of turning down women and hurting their feelings, I could clone myself so I could give my clone away to women who are attracted to me. That way we can both be happy. I can stay single, but women can still date my clone. I’ve always felt these women who pursue me deserve a prize or an award for trying so hard to get my attention. This way, I can give them my clone. Only need one clone. Since these women will soon find out I.... (and my clone) can't make them happy. Then they will dump my clone and I'll be able use him again and again.

It's sounds like they might have to breast feed your clone for a number of years first.

You're right. That could pose a problem.

BTW, I was just kidding in my previous post. In my opinion cloning humans is not morally right.
