Tip: Make sure that ALL exit-enabled pipes, doors, etc. have a screen exit defined, or they'll take you to Level 0, the "endless" bonus game. Unless Start+Select is enabled, the only way out of it is to reset the game.

What would you do? I would savestate before lunch starts, and have secks with every girl at school. Well... some of them.
-Savestate right before a job interview so it would be like practicing and doing it for real at the same time.
-I would go to an amusement park, savestate right after getting in, ride what I want to ride, and near the end of the day, load state back to the beginning, and ride the rest of what I wanted to ride but didn't have time for the first time. Same for big carnivals.

Do lethal tricks. When I die, reload and try again.
hahaha..., i was always thinking of this!!!

1. in school, i'll save a state in my classroom sitting, then i'll walk around the school carelessly and when i'm done, i'll load the state back.

2. savestate right before i think something's going to go wrong.

3. try anything dangerous, see the results, and then reload.
call me crazy, but i've had dreams of savestating in real life! #smw{O_O!}

Savestate right before every test. Easy way to get a 100% on everything.

Savestate before someone says something so I can be like Joseph.

I would make a savestate tomorrow morning and go to buy Pokemon Y, reloading it if the shop's sold out.
I should have preordered it

Usually inactive/procrastinating on a hack idea.
Right as soon as I get up for school. Then, I can go off and do whatever I damn well please, then I'd load the state and do the day for real.

Also, I'd do it right before posting. Just in case it starts a flame war.

Definitely this.
Save state -> jump from a giant cliff -> Load state just before I hit the ground and die.

On a more serious note, I'd probable use them the same way I use them in video-games, only save at the begging of each day and on situations that are likely to go wrong. I wouldn't want to abuse them.

Agh, you beat me to it...

I'd savestate, wreak havoc, reload and do it all again. I am a psychopath after all, hehehe.
I did get a knee injury two days ago so i would savestate right before i fell then when i fall i would loadstate then i would be back to where i savestated.

Use Slots 0, 1, and 2 to save and reload for everyday purposes, and use the other slots to save during the happiest moments so I can relive them.




As I am a rather scientific guy, I would assume that loading a savestate would recreate the exact same universe as when the savestate was created, including my brain and therefore my thoughts and memories, so I would be unable to gain any obvious advantage from such an ability.

I would further assume that the universe is fully deterministic, including quantum physics; we don't know the rules, but I do believe they exist. (We will never be able to predict the universe, as a perfect universe-simulator would require more than one particle of memory to represent one simulated particle, alternatively would be identical to its simulation and therefore not be a simulation at all.)

This means that all events between state saving and state loading would be perfectly repeated; including loading the same savestate again. The end result of this would be rendering the universe devoid of any further meaningful activity, and it would be the equivalent of any other universal doomsday device. I don't even know if it's possible to differ between a savestater and an instant universe terminator.

Alternatively, if my assumption of determinism is false, and the many-worlds interpretation is true as well, it is possible that many, or even most, of the alternate universa(*) have ended already, and we're really damn lucky, but that's implausible. Instead, it is more likely that many of our clones may have ended already, and we're here just because we're still here. It's the same reason we live on the only known inhabited planet - the others are uninhabited, therefore we're somewhere else.

To return to the original question, a rewinder may bring useful benefits to me, even if many-worlds is false, assuming the universe is not deterministic. Since the quantum phenomena will go differently, the world will not be identical to last time; however, I must very carefully set the rewind time, as if I set it too short, I will redo it forever (I won't know how many times I've done it, so I won't tire of it), and if I set it too long, I (as well as the rewinder) will cease to exist.

So the short answer is: If I had savestates in real life, we would know a whole lot more about the universe; however, I would be unlikely to use it, as destroying the universe is unlikely to yield any desirable effect in any eventual afterlife I may end up in, if any.

* Isn't 'universa' an oxymoron, anyways?

I'd savestate right before I do something wrong and then loadstate. That would save me a lot of time to think before I do something, but I wouldn't abuse them as well.

Not entirely sure what would I do. If I could, I'll just do some random stuff (nothing bad).
Completely avoid them because the ability to do whatever you feel like doing without any consequences to your actions at all will most likely lead to some severe mental health problems down the line.
