    Technically you can change your DNA, or the expression of it. Look up epigenetics



    Anyway this is probably the subject of one of my favourite red dwarf episodes (S04E02 if you have better methods).


    Anyway do I get to play with clones, what sort of understanding do I have of genetics when making this, can't I just have a robot body instead? If I have got clones can I have a shared consciousness? Can I solve ageing/sort my telomeres?

    "Can only survive with my favorite food, ecc ecc."
    How would that work? I guess you could radically redefine your biology to do without things such a food might not provide (you would usually meet the idea when discussing the essential amino acids), or go one step further and produce it from raw chemicals. However that would probably be a fairly radical change.

    But yeah live forever, be immortal (or near immortal -- not sure how twiddling my DNA might see me survive the end of the earth), have better capacity to process information (memory included in that), have better senses and so on.

    I'll probably be some kind of Human-Cat-Fox hybrid.

    A plugin system like Xposed on Android or NTR on the 3DS would be nice. I have no idea how it would work though. :D
    So what would I do? Well, I'd probably change my body first. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Minor change in energy signature is not that hard, but most likely inaccessible to biologists.

    Three little boys find themselves at a playground one day.
    A genie appears and says this is a magic wishing slide, as you slide say out loud what you wish for and your wish will be granted

    The first boy goes down the slide
    "unlimited sweets!"
    Upon reaching the bottom a small bag is found, in it an endless amount of sweets are found.
    The second boy goes down the slide
    "all the games"
    Upon reaching the bottom the boy finds a top spec laptop that magically stays up with current technology
    The third boy goes down the slide
    "weee"

    To not be allergic to fucking everything. That would be pretty nice if you ask me.

    Give myself teleportation powers so I can install A9LH on (almost) every single 3DS in existence.
    Especially for peasants like GalladeGuy and Bubsy.

    Somewhere you can never find.
    Id fix it so my brain doesn't waste seconds to think about something I should know instantly and so my memory wasn't easy to forget things.
