No.
Do you want to be reborn as a member of the opposite sex?

I replied. "Wanting to be reborn is like wanting to stay in a jail cell, when you have the chance to go free and experience the whole wide world.

Who wouldn't want that?"

No. While men seem to have it easier in many ways, I think I'm going to follow Jetsumna Tenzin Palmo's example and aspire to return as a woman.

Did you admire Mahatma Gandhi or Martin Luther King as a child?

No, not really... I didn't know of Mahatma Gandhi until later in life (well, except as a leader in the computer game "Civilization," and I didn't really understand King's civil rights issues until later in life.

Do you ever post on Dharmawheel from work?

Not really. It's the body that seems to be getting older and I don't like all the sagginess. :smile:

Are you a fan of anime?
