You know how, in video games, there are often checkpoints where you can save your game before you enter a mysterious lair, or enter into a fight? How you can die, but come back to life right at that moment before you died? That doesn’t exist in real life. It’s easy to forget that little things such as sending back a text while driving could lead to big consequences, especially if you think you’re invincible, a great driver. But this time, you can’t rewind time and come back to life.
