Ctrl + Z (Undo)

Life with an “Undo” (Ctrl + Z) (Edit -> Undo) option would have been so wonderful…

I could have undone:
  • The hours that I spent, uselessly watching WWE…
  • The time that I spent sleeping, instead of exercising…
  • The last exam I wrote, where I failed miserably…
  • The decision I took, that had dire repercussions…
  • The decision I took, that backfired…
  • The module that I wrote, that gave more bugs than functionality…
  • The deadline I accepted, that could never be achieved…
  • The project that I undertook, that was never meant to be completed…
  • The career that I chose, which never was chalked out for me…
  • The last word I uttered, that hurt someone…
  • The friendship I made, that gave me a foe…
  • The relationship I entered, which never worked out…
  • The last peg I had, that made me puke…
adios…
PS: You are pretty unlucky that you don’t have the option of undoing the mistake of reading this post :)

soumya said...

trinity would have left u

Enigma said...

exactly my thoughts..I wish tht i could control time and chance certain past mistakes/incidents :(

Somu said...

Ha ha ha ! Funny post !!!
It would be interesting if we could turn back time, right ?

APOO said...

Iyer, watch this movie called the butterfly effect (Ashton Kutcher) - if u have not seen it already. Its all about turning back time and how you think it might be better and how actually it might end up being worse!

Would go well with this post and some beer... oops, I forgot, Nimboo-Paani!

iyer education said...

neha & somu: thanks :)

appu: the choice of drink depends upon where am i catching the movie... so please dont rule the beer out :)

Arch Storm said...

Debalina said...

Wow !!..Wish we could.. isnt it ??

And on that same thought, if we could do ctrl+p we could copy the rich n famous lives of some1 else..(which necessarily means their bank a/c too)

;)

iyer education said...

scribblez: undo has its restrictions and does not apply to souls (or soles)

arch: i still luv wrestling... just wanted to add some lines to the post... will never ever undo it

debalina: i guess we should also be able to "ping" our decisions prior to we take them and figure out if they are going to work for us... good idea :)

Ravi Nambiar said...

Just imagine with an undo button for everyone, there would be no wars, big or small, what a peaceful world it would be to live in. Wish?

IdeaSmith said...

Ouch regrets...what a waste of time. How about hitting a 'page break' and starting afresh as best you can?

Well done on a nice blog Blogger. I was searching for information on stock option software and came across your post this post - not quite what I was looking for related to stock option software but very interesting all the same!

Well, Christmas is over and we're all getting ready for the new years and there aren't many trading days left. Although I'm still trying to grapple with where the dollar's headed next year. My feeling is that it's going to be much the same as this - all over the place, but possibly on the ascendant over the year, mainly due the instability in the Eurozone. And as for stocks, I think the safest thing is to stick to trading the indices. There's still too much downward pressure.

If you do have a moment, please take a look at my new site on: Option Trading .

A merry Christmas to you and yours! Amon
