    If you could meet a version of you from 10 years into the future (assuming you live that long) what would you ask them?

    I remembered another (now defunct) thread asking what you would say to your past self, so I figured it would be interesting to see what you answer when posed with the opposite scenario. With the unknown.

    Probably something along the lines of "What are you doing with your life?". It's a simple enough question, but honestly I wanna know where I'm gonna end up. I'm at a point that I'm scared I might just end up a broke shut in.

    "I don't care about spoilers, just go ahead and tell me who murders me so I can put a bomb in their car first!"

    "PS: Ever achieve that world domination yet?"

    There's a good reason I won't be able to meet my future self...
    One of me is already too much for this world to handle sometimes. :badgrin:

    Probably something like, "Okay, but can I see your artwork though?"

    I want to know what kind of things I'd be making in 10 years! Future me had still better be drawing.

    Apart from that, I guess I'd ask myself what they're doing with their life, what's the state of future technology...and, not going to lie, what their gender is doing these days. Because I'd sure like to know what to expect!

    Honestly, I can think of a million things I'd want to ask- are you happy, did things work out, are you still pursuing X, Y, Z, how is your life now?

    But realistically I'd probably not ask anything even if I got the chance. I'd just take comfort in the fact that I still seem to be up and walking ten years into the future, and not ask anything that'll skewer this timeline I'm in at the moment, or change my mentality entirely. It's a risky thing, finding out too much about your future before you get there.

    If I had to pose one question though I'll probably just ask, are you in a better place now?

    Hmm, for me...

    "Did you achieve what you wanted to?"
    "Do you know who's true to you?"
    "Have you managed to break it to your family? Did you move out, firstly?"
    "Are you happy, right now?"

    Are you married? Do you have kids?

    Only 'no' is the appropriate answer to both questions.
