So Who Won A Double Pass To See Self/less?

A couple of weeks ago, to celebrate the cinema release of Self/less, we asked you to tell us what you'd do with a second chance at life — if you could start over, in a healthy young body with the world at your fingertips. So who won?

We had 10 to give away, one each to our favourite responses!

The competition challenge: What would you do if you were given a second chance at life?

Winner #1: leviistar

Here's their winning comment:

I'd choose the blue pill.

Winner #2: sacreative

Here's their winning comment:

I'd go back to when I was 13 y/o and learn how to code/program instead of staying up till 4am on ebaumsworld.com.

By now I would have developed a middle-out compression algorithm, smashed a 5.3 wiessman score, joined the 3 comma club and be living it up in Palo Alto.

Winner #3: patrick

Here's their winning comment:

Had kids sooner - they bring so much fun/joy/happiness to my life and I wish I could have our overlap for longer.

Winner #4: supergarbageman

Here's their winning comment:

Would have got a better job so I wouldnt need to enter a contest to see a movie!

Winner #5: Aash

Here's their winning comment:

I would use my relatively incredible knowledge base, combine it with being young and energetic enough to accomplish many things... I'd definitely finish multiple degrees at a stupidly young age because of an already present knowledge base. I'd use a chunk of my time to get some physical training in. Then I'd become Batman. Or at least Iron man. But I'd aim for Batman. Having an archnemesis would be hella cool.

Winner #6: jezs00

Here's their winning comment:

I would buy loads of bitcoins in 2007, and then once I was rich I would buy all the cats in the world and hang out in an unused missile silo with all of my cats.

Winner #7: Kendal

Here's their winning comment:

Starting again - I'd wait to see the winning entry - then post it first. Oh - and that other stuff.

Winner #8: dogmeat

Here's their winning comment:

I'd be my twin brother just to see who is the most awesome (ps. It's surely me)

Winner #9: stockenheim

Here's their winning comment:

I'd advise Ryan Reynolds not to make 'Green Lantern'

Winner #10: blaket

Here's their winning comment:

If I got a second chance, I'd see who won this competition, and when I got a chance to repeat my life, I'd write that here in the comments section.

Thanks for entering, everyone! Winners will be contacted by email.

In this provocative psychological science fiction thriller, an extremely wealthy man (Academy Award® Winner Ben Kingsley) dying from cancer undergoes a radical medical procedure that transfers his consciousness into the body of a healthy young man (Ryan Reynolds). But all is not as it seems when he starts to uncover the mystery of the body’s origin and the organisation that will kill to protect its cause. Self/less is directed by Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall, Immortals, Mirror Mirror).

What would you do if you were given a second chance at life?
