IT IS THE CLOSEST THING TO PURE UNTAINTED FAITH I'VE GOT LEFT
The haps: A few years ago I did a comic where T-Rex suggested that life would be easier if we knew how much others have regretted the actions we're currently contemplating. When I was done I thought "Huh, that's a good idea, T-Rex!" and delayed putting the comic up for a few hours so I could realize his idea: the Amazing Regret Index. It went down a while back (the people hosting the database - disappeared?) but last night I had a few moments, so I reverse engineered the database and the Regret Index is back up! You can fill it with all the regrets you've ever had and rate the regrets of others, sharing your lifetime's worth of hard-earned experience.
Right now some of the least regretted things are "defending the bullied kid" and "discovering webcomics" (nice!) and some of the most regretted things are "not starting that final paper sooner", "not believing her when she said 'I'm a worse person than you are'", and "forgetting to take the money dispensed out of the cash machine". So if you're thinking of doing that, know that the collected wisdom of humanity says that you'll probably regret it!
The Regret Index, ladies and gentlemen!
