I could've been an NBA player!!! If I grew 10 more inches, worked out every day for hours, played basketball for hours, reach 8% body fat, got in amazing cardiovascular shape, learned to dribble, learned to shoot amazing, etc etc etc! I'm sure if there are an infinite amount of parallel universes, in one I've got to be athletic

I like how part of the guys that answered this (myself included) left in the part about just wanting to see how many people followed their ambitions.
