Imagine the following scenario: you are reborn in a new life at the same age you are today. However,...

...to start your new life, you must choose one of two doors, door #1 or door #2, and you are allowed to look through their peepholes before making your decision to go ahead. If you open door #1, you will live with the power to reverse one of your decisions made every day for the rest of your life. If you open door #2, you will be able to stop time for 10 seconds every day for the rest of your life.   

Which door would you choose to open and why?  <o:p></o:p>

i think i'd prefer the door number one.Well ability to stop time is pretty cool but only 10 seconds per day? It can be much beneficial if i could reverse one decision i made that day. Because who know that decision would change one's life entirely? For example my mother always regretted going to school when her grandma was sick. And at the same day her grandma died from hearth attack and she couldn't even say her last word to her dear grandma

I'd choose the door #1, because with that power you can see the near future. I mean, if you want to change a wrong decision, are able to reverse the time and take, you consider, the best one.
The negative face of this power is you can only do this once a day, but I still thinking I get this door.

Nilton, my choice depends on what I perceive as more valuable. From the perspective of time, assuming that I live to a ripe old age of 85, I will be able to add 167,900 seconds to my lifespan if I choose Door #2, which works out to be about 46.64 hours. I can use these precious hours to do something useful for myself, my family and others around me. On the other hand, as long as I live each day purposefully and consciously, there will be close to no reason why I would need to reverse a decision each day, since every decision can be made wisely. 

(I always tell my students that money, if not spent today, can be spent tomorrow. Time, if not used wisely, is gone forever. I will definitely choose Door #2. If every door is #2, I will choose to open all the doors :) )
