    Have you ever made a mistake in the real world, i.e. not on the Computer, and thought in your head Ctrl+Z? I've done this a few times. I just did it while drawing in my sketch book. I made a line that I didn't want and unconciously said Ctrl+Z in my head. I was like "uhh, okay.." :D I think it might be because I also work with Photoshop a lot.

    Yeah I do, except for me it is Cmd + Z because I use a Mac!

    Oh yea, I didn't even think about that. I only use PC's at school, but I still think Ctrl+Z when I use my mac. :rolleyes:

    I've wished I could use Cmd-Opt-Esc a few times in the real world and force-quit some crappy situations.

    Yup. One time after playing a game with quicksave (F12) and quickload (F9) for a long time I even thought "F9" in my head after I did something stupid.

    I walk around and wonder how did everyone's hard drive get corrupted.

    Thanks God, it's not just me.

    I was sketching in my sketch pad the other day, made a few strokes I didn't like, and before I realized it, was thinking Cmd+z......

    Scary stuff.

    One time, a really bad driver cut me off while I was on the road, and I wished he was the personified version of Windows XP and crashed. Repeatedly.

    Then he'd catch a whole bunch of weird viruses.

    Amen to that.

    I'd also like to cut and paste some stuff, while we're at it ...

    I'm a CMD-C-V kind of guy in real life. You're not alone.

    If I had an option to Cmd + Z, I would not have moved on from day 1. I would be like a Bill M. character in Ground Hog Day; the only difference would be mine would be more than 2 hours and could be 2 decades:eek:

    I am guessing "help" in the Mac platform. If it is Windows, you would be summoning annoying devils of Paper Clipper or Cartoon Dogs.....

    ha - yeah - but thankfully Clippy et al. have a "bugger off and don't bother me again" button. Another useful one for reality! :)

    Cmd-Z has popped into my head with alarming regularity - be it when writing, drawing, using a calculator...

    I suppose I'm one of those people who makes a lot of mistakes. :eek:

    It's called a psychologist! I've never though of cmd-z before, maybe rewind, pause, fast forward! Crash happened a few times! And application is not responing, failed exams...

    You people are cracking me up. I am at work and needed that chuckle. I myself have never done that, but being a cosmetologist. I would look at someone's hair and would ache to get my shears on it. Also in a previous job, i would do inspections on containers coming into the terminal. I would sometimes see one on the highway and start inspecting it at I go along. lmao!!!

    you would have to have been there. I still do that sometimes.

    I dont. Not at all. Coz I dont use CMD Z on my mac either. I rarely use any text writing,drawing etc. So never had the need.

    But I must say I m obsessed spotlight. It`s happened to me more than a few times now. Whenever I m looking for something my mind simply directs my eyes to the top right and starts spelling the name of the thing I was searching for. K-E-Y-S. :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Goddamnit. I wish there was a spotlight in real life too.:rolleyes:

    The only one I have is the command+s to save my exam answers, last month writing finals I had a slight panic attack because I could not find the apple menu > file > save... Thanks to my laptop I haven't taken paper notes in three years so written exams mess me up a little especially when I look for the spell check and thesaurus... :rolleyes:
