There are very few people who don't wish there was something different about their body.

Who doesn't dream of washboard abs, smooth silky hair or sparkling eyes?

But what if we could improve our bodies even further?

What if we could give them special features more commonly found in science fiction?

Redditor MeatScepterGuy was curious what feature, big or small, people wished was part of their anatomy, leading them to ask:

"If you had the ability to add a feature to the human body, what would it be?"


These knees aren't what they used to be.

Hitchhiking. It has to be one of the most dangerous things a person can do.

There are too many movies where a hitchhiker falls victim to some psycho, and they're shocked it's happening.

Like... Hello?!?! You got into some stranger's car. How could you not get killed?

RedditorWestTexasOilmanwanted all of the road travelers to share some memories about past rides. They asked:

8th. Last we checked, that's not 1st.

It's not all doom and gloom though. There are still a lot of things to love about the good ol' U. S. of A. And if you love something, you fight for it, to make it better, and truly try to achieve the ranking of "best."
