Probably,our descendants may get this kinda facility in 2075, not too early. Friends probably everybody have something in their life that they want to undo. Like Some nasty mishaps,GF breakups...anything. So express your desire and strech the list bit more...
You know this is an interesting subject in that should you really want to go back and do it again, and how will that change where you are now, will you know for sure that it will make now better, or maybe just maybe, it would make it much worse.
I would highly suggest to forget the past or you are doomed to repeat it.
Why do I feel like I am just using other people's words in this post.
Anyway, I used to want to change all those past mistakes, but realized it is because of those mistakes that I really hate and wish I could change, but because of them led me to exactly where I am now, and if that means I wouldn't have met and married my wife, then I don't want to change them anyhow anyway ever ever ever.

I think it boils down to be careful what you wish for... My dad used to tell me wish in one hand and do something else in the other (use your imagination here) and see what you get first. I don't wish anymore. Instead, I hope .
I was thinking the same thing a few days ago when I read Mark's reply. Even though my wife has been renamed "ex", my kids apply in this case
This reminds me of a time my English teacher asked what I would do if I woke up one morning as a woman. My response if I remember correctly(he flung a thick literature book at me after saying this) was "of course feel myself up".
