Poll: A new medical procedure allows your genes to be “reshuffled,” eliminating any errors, genetic disorders, or flaws but fundamentally changing who you are as a person. Would you go through with it?
  • 28.5% - Yeah. 420
  • 28.4% - No. 419
  • 43.2% - If I’m not still me, what’s the point? 637

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Eep. Essentially cure all genetic disorders, but lose all of the subtle mutations and differences? Pass.
Would it change your blue eyes to brown? Would your core personality traits be altered? Would we all look more alike? Bah.
I'll stay a mutated genetic mess.

what are these "errors, genetic disorders, or flaws" you speak of? dear sirs, I have none of these...or maybe I've already been "reshuffled"?! o.O

*I* have FIVE Quality Posts! no, seriously...how did that happen?!

Hmmm...depends on how I'd be fundamentally changed as a person. Flaws aren't just physical, you know.

I'm already perfect. [Maybe not photogenically perfect, but that changes over time anyway.]

No, but can I do this procedure on someone else?

Why can't they just figure out how to do the fixing thing like the transporter on Star Trek did it?? That didn't change anyone, and they were all a lot better off.

Scientists GO!

That depends...

Does the Tardis come with the procedure, or do I have to find one to steal?
