No.
Do you want to be reborn as a member of the opposite sex?
A person once asked me why I would want to stop rebirth. "It sounds pretty cool. Being able to come back. Who wouldn't want to be reborn."
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. Does a convict, on being freed from his shabby, constricting, little cell, suddenly say "I really want to go back to jail and be put in a cell. It sounds pretty cool. Being able to come back. 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?

Profile Picture: "The Foaming Monk"
The Chinese characters are Fo (buddha) and Ming (bright). The image is of a student of Buddhism, who, imagining himself to be a monk, and not understanding the true meaning of the words takes the sound of the words literally. Likewise, People on web forums sometime seem to be foaming at the mouth.

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