    If YOU could go back in time and remake one decision, what would that be?

    We've all got some regrets somewhere back in time. And of course the old adage of "Hindsight is always 20/20" always applies. Traveling down 'life's highway' there usually are a few of those proverbial 'forks in the road' reflecting decisions that could well alter the direction of your life.

    For me the biggest decision I've wished that I had made differently was early on, rejecting the offer to learn the craft of my dad's best friend, a multi-nominated and Oscar and Emmy winner in a skilled technical aspect of movie film production. Unfortunately I was vacuum-visioned, having unpleasant stuff going on in my life back then (actually the reason for the overture) and turned him down cold. In retrospect, being trained, mentored and the protege' of someone so accomplished and respected in the movie industry would have almost guaranteed fortune and fame. There've been other decisions I also regret making, but that one stands out as my biggest doozy of 'em all.

    You?

    :bigthink

    I can't think of anything major, maybe I could have spoken up and expressed my feelings a little better with a couple of relationships in my high school days, but in the end it all didn't matter because I eventually found a great woman that I'm happy with.

    I regret not going away to college, and instead staying in NYC, although the right move for my career, I never had the true "college experience":(

    Seriously. Because if I did something over I might have missed out on something that makes me who I am today.

    I am happy and content with my life currently. I would have treated a girlfriend I had in my mid-twenties differently. I regret pushing her away. That's about it.

    Not that I would actually want a do-over because the path I chose ended up being really good in terms of meeting someone, seeing parts of the world I wouldn't have seen otherwise, having some success and satisfaction - BUT...I didn't do what I really, really thought I would and should do and I still carry some of that regret internally. Turns out my nephew went down one of two my potential paths so I get to see what might have been. Interesting to have that perspective because I do get a little envious of what he is doing and the contribution he is making.

    I may have played for 30 min. before turning it off. Do you recommend Dying Light? I was thinking about getting it, but read that weapons will break after awhile and I don't like that in games.

    I haven't had a ton of time with it yet. I like it so far but prefer a bit less realism in my killing games. I don't want to get tired quickly when I'm hitting fuckers with a pipe.

    Actually, I do have one thing I'd do over. I'd go through with the penis reduction that my doctor recommended. He's a plastic surgeon named Dr. Stubbs.

    I regret being a doormat at the beginning of my relationship with my now husband.
    They're were so many signs and red flags that we really weren't compatible on so many levels. And unfortunately, the repercussions continue until this day....

    No. But let me tell you, sex has never been the issue. It was everything else!

    Dying Light was a fun, weapons don't break that easy and can be repaired with one button at least a couple times some weapons allow more repairs before breakings. Pick it up, the story isn't much to talk about but the combat and parkour movement is great.
