If you discovered upon death that you must reincarnate into an animal, but are only allowed a broad choice as follows, which would you select?

- an animal that lives in water
- an animal that lives on land
- an animal that can fly

I'm not a human in real life, I just play one on the internet.

I'd choose an animal that lives on food.

yeah I think flying is the obvious answer, but I've seen people choose other options.

I'd fly too. There's no litter that stays in the air at least but I'd probably eat something plastic and die of starvation.

But have my current cognitive function?

Wait, I take that back.  Could you imagine a worse hell?

That is tough.  Flying sounds great if you come back as an eagle, but there are a lot of flying insects and being a mosquito doesn't sound like fun.  I suppose there is no way to escape possible being an insect, but I would go with land knowing that is where most of the mammals live.

Is this a debate? Seems more like a survey..or a poll. 

Am I supposed to tell people they shouldn't choose to be flying animals for...reasons?

Choose a faction and fight!

I choose Water. The one true reincarnation choice.

Has anyone read Sapiens? They make the stipulation that homosapien's ability to believe in a common myth (gods, church, state, The United Water Reincarnators) is what separated us from other species and allowed us to prevail.

Really though, how the hell would anything be better than water?! Sky, pfft.
