OK, here's another question for you to ponder. Given an ideal living situation (i.e., you're able to provide support, etc.) would you rather

A) raise, single-parent, a natural child of your own, bred with someone else


B) raise, single-parent, an exact clone of yourself?

I expect this one to go about 95% in one direction and 5% in the other, but I'm very interested to see who's in that 5%...with me. The way I look at it, it's another chance to get me right, and I sure as hell think I'd benefit from one.

My hope for my child-rearing skills is that I will nimbly avoid any mistakes or developmental deficiencies that I may have experienced growing up.

So by the time the clone was ten, I'd look upon this younger version of myself as everything I could have been...and I may up resenting him.

And since he's due to resent me anyway once he hits teenage years...

I guess I'll go with Option A, if only to keep the resentment to a bare minimum.
