Post subject:  Other Self

Imagine this scenario, you wake up, go to work/school/ect. and get there, you are very tired and everything goes wrong. Everthing you do doesn't go the way you want and after many hours that feel like an eternity you go home tired and miserable and once you get there you find yourself already home, another self.

How would you react, what would you do?

(you're weird :laugh:)

In that case I would have a bunch of super-powers (why not, since we're so far away in the hypothetical world?), so I'd use them to freeze my other self and keep it locked, or make me and the other self one again.

Or I'd simply start a conversation of Symbolic Interaccionism fashion and try to figure out which of us was the I and which was the Me.

Heh, I was aiming more for a realistic world (Despite the other self), I decided to make this topic after watching some more of Serial Experiments Lain again.... (There is a scene like this)

Edit: Didn't see second answer

I would tell my other self to make a sammich, and I would make him clean up, do my laundry, and bring me beers.

This is a great idea, well-put!

In this hypothetical case, I should maybe finally take the countless orders to fuck me...

By the way, this whole idea reminds me of "The 6th Day" (quite a dumb movie, methinks).

I would congratulate me on being me. Then I would try to borrow a tenner off of me, but knowing me, I probably wouldn't carry that kind of cash...

I would try to seduce me. :p

i'd start a band with myself, because i'm the only person i know who likes the music i do and plays an instrument

That's another interesting idea, Metal Chef! Me and me, we could play the guitar harmonies together! :)

If the first thing I saw after a shitty, boring and pointless day was myself already home, I'd propably think I'm finally going f-ing nuts and proceed to throw my other self off the balcony. Don't need another miserable bastard here when I can barely cope with myself.

And I live on ground-level so my other self wouldn't die. And why open three doors, throw the bastard out, then come back in when I can open the balcony door, shove the bastard over the railing and come back in.

I'd tell me to put some music on & roll up a South African drug's reefer-style spliff doobie while I get us both a Beer. Then I'd challenge myself to a 2 player game on Marvel Superheroes vs Streetfighter. But who would win!? Maybe it would be a double KO every time.... hmmm.

hm, it would probably go as this:

Me: *stare at Other, doing the one eyebrow lift thing*
Other: "uh, yea?"
Me: "you miserable too?"
Other: "yea"
Me: "uh... huh... are you as confused about who you are as i am right now?"
Other: "probably, can't be too sure"
Me: "right... so you gonna leave?"
Other: "eventually"
Me: "huh... k... just don't take anything" *walks to bedroom, crashes on bed*
