    Not me, no way I want to do that all over. The older I get, the faster time flies by.

    I don't find that to be true at all. I don't wish I was young again. For one thing I have kids, going back probably means they will never exist, so its pretty much off the table for me.

    The trials and tribulations of your life made you who you are now. We could argue hypothetically about how you might change things or might do things differently but one thing is for certain, you would have a whole other list of tragic events happen to you. I wouldn't want to go back. Nobody gets out of here without experiencing the bad right along with the good so you probably would experience some new good things but you would experience bad things as well.

    i do wish i was a few years younger but it is what it is. everyone loses the battle to father time and death. it's inevitable. the important thing is to move forward and live life to the fullest. enjoy the present because that what it is, a present...a gift.

    Its that ole percentage perspective. If you are 5 years old then 1 year is 20% of your life, a year is a LONG time. If you are 50 years old then 1 year is only 2% of your life and seems short. So the older you get, the more time seems to fly. Same reason to a child summer vacation seems to last forever.

    To wish I was younger would be to wish the death of me now and I like being me now.

    There's some things I would have liked to do, but the me that was didn't make those choices and the me that is doesn't want to self obliterate.

    The time thing is just a facet of memory. Your brain short cuts if things are the same and doesn't bother making new memories, but puts a spin on an old one.

    New, novel experience creates the feeling of slower time.

    The only way you can maximise your time is to do new shit and challenge yourself all the time.

    "Like" would be an awfully strong word. I don't hate it, but I have never looked forward to going to work. :)

    Not when I'm tired like this week. My mental fatigue is at Max because my shoes are rotten. Got slight back pain as a result and it straight up hurts my feet to walk with them. Gotta buy new ones, but that'd mean walking. Thinking of throwing on five pairs of socks and hoping I don't step on needles

    Man reading your posts is depressing.


    Fucking do something about it. There's not going to be a time machine that takes you back. But there's no reason why you can't still be living life to the fullest at 35.

    I don't know what your situation is, but it sounds like you need to make some changes

    no my life is pretty good. its just time flies by now. wish i could turn the clock back 10-11 years. I remember being 24 like it was yesterday...

    I was pretty drunk when i made this thread though... if you look in the epic beer thread u will see all that i drank.. when i drink sometimes i think back and am like "fuck why cant i still be in boston partying with my college buds" and think of the past

    I thought this thread was about whether or not time seems to fly by, yet most of the discussion is about whether we'd want to live parts of our past over again.

    My answer to both is yes, but I was going to say that there's actually a possible explanation as to why as you age time feels like it's going faster. This vid explains starting at 2:20.

    one of the benefits of getting married and having children, is that you can relive your youth through your children. it's not exactly the same as being young again, but it's as close as you'll get. i see my sister with her kids, and she couldn't be happier. i'm sure it's the same with other parents.
