    I hate to sound egotistical, but I can't think of anyone. I'm happy being me.

    That's a tough question. I'm assuming those already dead don't count, otherwise I'd say Charles Bukowski.

    I guess I'd choose to be Diablo Cody. She's just so goddamn hip - I love that girl. I'm thinking of stealing her tattoo.

    can you be someone retroactively? (I.e. someone who passed away, like Steve McQueen etc...i ask because i would not like to be that person and then find myself stuck in a coffin decomposing for the week i was allotted)

    then i would say Custer...but i want the week to end about two seconds before he got shot.

    i really want to know what happened at the Little Bighorn after the known events ended and then the unknown events transpired...it has bedevilled me my whole life, and really annoys me. :mad:

    with the knowledge of what happened, i can then write the definitive book and documentary etc. i would also bring a camera phone and video recorder (if allowed under your rules) and i would make hundreds of millions selling everything.

    it would solve a historical mystery i have always wished to know about and make me obscenely wealthy, not to mention, be very exciting, except for the whole getting slaughtered part

    I can't imagine wanting to be anyone other than myself. Seriously.

    Now--to live in different times and see different things and meeting long-dead people? I'm all in!

    I'd like to be Warren Buffet so I could transfer a whole lot of money into my bank account.

    A question: if you are one week in someone else his/hers body... who is then in your body? I mean, if I would get in someone else his/hers body for a week I want to be sure that the person who is in my body can deal with the problems and life I have and don't make a mess of it... Am I going to deep in this subject? :rolleyes:

    Drifterwood - globe trotting and sex with a big dick from the big dick owner's perspective.

    Scratch that. No offence, Drifter.

    Vince - I'd want sex with a man, too. (I mean, if he's going to be absent from his body race week anyway...)

    Good question.

    Another question might be whether it was your mind controlling the shell or if your conciousness were just tagging along for the ride and experiencing all their thoughts, feelings and doings while they were still in control.

    It makes a difference how you'd answer.

    Ha! You and me both!

    I would pick John Lennon... after the Beatles broke up.
