The Regret Index is a searchable database of regrets. Do you regret lending your bees to a dishonest beekeeper? Clearly, this is a problem affecting many of us, because it is currently a “top regret” on the Regret Index. How about “taking a trip down memory lane, but then getting jackknifed on bitter regret turnpike”? How can you not regret that? Or having to move back in with your parents?
Ryan North, creator of that most excellent and venerable webcomic, Dinosaur Comics, created the Regret Index as “a useful resource in case you’re considering doing something,” after coming up with the idea in one of his comics.
There are already many regrettable incident types in the Index on which you can vote, as well as add your own. A regret with an index of one is most perfectly regrettable, while regrets with lower index numbers are considered, by popular vote, less utterly regrettable. Choosing to memorize every Star Trek episode, an act that has provided satisfaction to at least two dinosaurs, deserves a perfect zero in their book.
