Would you rather stop playing this game or stop playing games with your one, God-given life?

Would you rather feel completely unchanged by this entire experience or feel radically different to the point where you have to relearn everything you thought you knew and even learn some new things for the first time like calculus?

Would you rather start playing this game over again as a changed person or are you tapped out at this point?

Would you rather stop here because there are better uses of your time or stop because you’ve taken what you feel is enough of my wisdom to heart and you’re ready to go out and face the world?

Last question: Would you rather lie to my face to escape the emotional burden of answering more follow-up questions or be honest which might make this go on for a bit longer than you hoped?

Actual last question. I promise! No more after this: Would you rather not answer the last seven questions at all because the truth would hurt my feelings or would you rather hurt my feelings in service of helping me become a better person even if it’s just the first small step of many that I should take to get myself focused on a better life?

And THIS is the absolute, FINAL question (optional): Would you rather have a rewind button on your life or a menu button where you can mess around with the settings, picture, audio, all that stuff? Think about it. There’s no wrong answer.
