I fear shark...so next life I want to be one... Come to think of it, it is a good idea... I can sleep when I want, where I want, no fear of being attacked, no fear of tornadoes, hurricanes, cyclones...and ample food, no need to earn, bicker about politicians, pay those home loan installments, and all those utility bills. Yeah...life as a shark would be good.........what would you like to be in your next life if god decided to give you a choice...

I would want to come back as a female again, with the knowledge/essence of what I am now, so that I don't make the same mistakes in the same way.

Well...how true...but when I stare at shark in my night mare ...I know what I fear...and what I don't want to fear. So I guess there will be no mistakes because there will be no priest to tell me you will go to hell if you do or don't do this...and all gods can confine themselves to humans. I will eat, steal, kill as I please.

NO you cannot sleep when and where you want, because sharks never sleep and they need to keep moving all the time. Sure that you want to be a shark? I fear snakes but I would never want to be a snake.

Never???????? No wonder their eyes look so terrible, sleep deprived...why do they need to keep moving......confused...yeah kinda...for now I feel there are lots of advantages in being a shark. People kill snakes, and the other predator is the big bird...dangers ...for snakes..

@vandana7 Sharks are obliged to swim because if they stop they die.They swim constantly in order to keep oxygen-rich water flowing over their gills. Being a shark is not an easy life. Humans kill sharks it is estimated that 100 to 200 million sharks are killed every year for their fins, to make the famous shark fin soup.

Hey, we won't have to worry about accidents, we won't have to worry about theater burning, or polluted air, and terrorists, and ISIS...think about it...think deeply...you might realize their lives are better than ours without financial worries, without bothering about kids not studying or adult kids back answering.

@vandana7 Yesterday I prepared Chicken Fry (with my wife's help). And WE enjoyed it.Tomorrow is Gudi Padwa and we both are going to be in kitchen (as I have taken off and she has a holiday). We are planning Puri-Batata Bhaji! I will be helping her! We might get 'Angoori' as sweet. Yes, I want to be an Indian Male (SMH - What it is I don't Know), but I want to be a MALE! Wish you could support a male the way you supported @CoralLevang , when she said she wants to be a female!

Depends upon what you mean by working also I guess. :) Half an hour ago, I was trying to negotiate with a tenant..it may seem like nothing, but it is work alright because once the rent is fixed, we get regular rent for the next whole year. But now I have dishes to do, and that is a work...lol It fetches me nothing but it has to be done, right? lol

But eagles have to sleep somewhere, and drink water somewhere, and that makes them vulnerable to attack by snakes and other creatures like crocodiles and gators.

Beware of shark hunters because they want your soup find. I want to bebird in my next life. I want to fly as high as can be. I want to fly fast. I want to see the whole world.

Aw...what is the probability that a shark hunter would kill me for soup, versus probability of somebody driving rashly and killing me, or some terrorist opting for jihad standing next to me......hmmm. I think I will take my chances as being a shark..lol Bird...hmmm... nice thought...if I did not fear snakes gulping them down.
