the after life....

If after you died, you found out you could return to earth as any other animal other than human, which would you choose and why?

A wolf fits my personality best. They are fierce, but are loyal to their pack and mate for life. Um, and they look cool and howl at the moon and stuff.
The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

I think I would return as a fox

How do you like that! And without so much as a “Kiss my foot” or “Have an apple”!

A squirrel, because I can’t get those FUCKERS out of my attic! AARRRG!

A cat. They got attitude…

Yer pal,

I wouldn’t. Returning as an animal would be a terrible existence. No reading, no movies, always hunting for food, and no internet. Maybe if I knew Michelle would be taking care of me, but other than that, no thanks.

A golden Retriever. Damn it seems like a pretty cushy life.

Lots of food, sleeping late on cold mornings, plenty of attention and brushing, walks in the woods and the occasional tennis ball chase. And all I have to to to justify all this is give the odd territorial bark at the pizza delivery man.

Well, my wife calls me lion (what, did you think Ayesha had a patent on it?), an old sensei named me Kuma (bear), but personally I would have to lobby for bonobo (pygmy chimp). Those suckers are playful, social, and have a prodigious amount of recreational sex.

In other moods, a cetacian or an eagle are tempting, just for the entrance into a whole new world of experience.

The best lack all conviction
The worst are full of passionate intensity.

If I could come back as an animal, I would choose to be a hawk, just flying around all day long, avoiding the occasional low-flying Cessna. I wouldn’t mind coming back as a Siamese cat either.

I wanna be a grizzly bear…sleep all winter long and eat all summer and people pretty much shy away from you. Yep… a grizzly…that’s the ticket!

First choice: peregrine falcon, the fastest bird, reaches up to 200 miles per hour in a dive!

Second choice: the spine tailed swift, can fly up to 160 km/hour.

Third choice: scissor-tailed hummingbird, for hovering and flying backwards.

If I was a mammal: a giraffe or an orca.

A roach.

To gleefully spread diseases where i go, live on postage stamp glue, hang out in people’s walls and come out for a stroll across the kid’s birthday cake right when everybody is watching… poison proof, bomb proof, the bad-boy of the insect world…sounds like a lot of fun to me!


I would say a cat, but then I don’t want to clean myself with my tongue. :frowning:

I’d say then either a blue whale, killer whale, or porpoise. And if I was the first, I would act like Moby Dick, ramming Japanese & Scandanavian whaling boats, hopefully avoiding harpoons.

I’d be a dodo bird or a carrier pigeon … just so I could say I was the only one.

Like Inky, I’d go with a dog. My dog has a great life. She sleeps a lot, sits in peoples’ laps (she’s very small), and gets a ton of table scraps.

Why is a dog’s life supposed to be bad, anyway?

definitely something wild, marine mammal sounds good

maybe a sea otter

if not that then a raptor, when I was a skydiver I really wanted to try flying horizontal,

A dog. So that I could finally lick… well, you guys understand.

A lemming. I want to find out what the deal is.

The margarine of evil

gotta go with ivick,I’ve Always loved otters. All they did on the nature shows I saw was slide into the water!
