Ctrl your life!

Yo so,
Did you ever feel like you don't have control over your life? Like anyone with any key can just enter your home, and all you'll be able to do is pause, break your windows and escape? And no matter how shifty you might be, there's just no alternatives? And right enough, in the end when it comes down to it, you'll eventually run out of space and back yourself into a point of no return. Only then you'll realize that the ONLY thing left to do is to unlock the ancient scroll, the same locked scroll which always rests within the reach of your fingers but you never ever touch it, and look up the ancient wisdom inserted within.

If you could have Ctrl to be used on one of the keys of your life, which would it be? And when would you use it on?

Interesting poll, but hard to pick when its only for a key moment of your life.
Ctrl+Z would be very handy if we make mistakes, but I would prefer to stick with the Ctrl+F to prevent them. I could find the right answer to the key problem I was facing.

Oh... if life was that easy!!!

GEez fishos I thought you had cut down on your medical drugs. But yeah, the intro text of this thread is much lolz. I liek it.

Crtl-S for sure! S meaning "save" ofcourse. Now, the question that remains is where or how could you load those saves later...

Clever.

Ctrl+Alt as I believe in diversity, but certainly not Alt right, because they are a-holes.

This Ctrl+Alt that you guys mention is the equivalent to what is known as Alt+Tab right? because pressing Ctrl+Alt does nothing for me...

I can see the appeal in Ctrl+S, saving is a pretty crucial function. But unless I get Ctrl+O it's just saving for the noble sake of preservation. Which is a noble cause, and it would be reassuring to know my file is preserved on the grand disk of life.

Choosing Ctrl+O would also be nice, having the ability to just load different lives would be pretty darn swell.

In the end I chose Ctrl+Z because Life Is Strange, 'nuff said.

And srsly, ppl, what's wrong with you? There's no such thing such as Ctrl+Alt. You're acting crazy.

There is if you also press +Delete. For when things are really going wrong in your life.
