If you could switch lives with anyone in the world this instant, who would it be and for what reason? However, there is a catch and that catch is that instead of your memories and whatnot staying alongside you, you would be given the memories and mindset of the person you traded lives with, rather than just the physical embodiment, meaning you would full undergo an entire physical, mental, and emotional change to that person. If you had someone in mind before reading the previous sentence, did the catch sway your decision in any way?

Hmm this is a tough one. Even before seeing the catch, I don't think I'd want to go through with a swap. But I have to admit, being Kate Middleton would be extremely interesting (well from my point of view). Marrying into royalty, living in England, there's a lot of aspects about her life that I think would be...exciting? I was thinking her before the catch, and it didn't really affect it at all. I'm sure she's mentally stable and all that good stuff, it's what happens to my memories that would make me say no.

I find it quite odd that the first person that popped into my mind before I opened the thread was Prince William, based on amount of fame/power vs. workload alone.

After reading the catch, though, I don't know if I'd go through with any sort of swap. If I could go through just a physical swap with absolutely anyone I probably would, but I'd rather not have wasted the last 20 years of my life if I couldn't keep my own thoughts and memories.

I'd switch lives with anybody. And I mean anybody. I hate my life, and I hate everything I've had to go through.

I would switch lives with someone I admire, like Billie Joe Armstrong or Mike Dirnt. Simply because they're semi-famous and seem to have a good time when they're not bothered by the stress of making a new record.

wait how long is the switch? because I'm thinking of switching lives with Tom Kenny or John DiMaggio or any voice actor. I just want to live the life of a VA for once in my life.

Ill child in 3rd world country it is, then!!


As for me, my life's obviously not perfect but I like it and cherish it (especially cherish the people i have around me) So I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I love myself, my life, and my memories. I'd never dream of switching. If I could keep my memories, being Paul McCartney for a while would be interesting.

Lea Michele. I want her memories, her looks, her voice, her everything. She's amazing and I'd want to be her :3 idm if I lose my memories, while I love them all, still, I'd be willing to trade just because her life just seems so amazing. :x

I don't think I'd ever do this permanently... But I would probably switch with one of my close friends that I really envy <_< He's really brilliant, and I would like to be him for a little while.
