If you ruled the world
« on: 11 Jan 2008, 16:13 »

So, some guy walks up to my cubicle today and says, "Hey, we're playing this game.  You should totally come check it out."

You go around the room and answer the question:
"What would you do if you ruled the world?"

Just out of curiosity... you guys?

People stopped playing when I said I'd feed the fatties to all the starving kids in Africa.  That and put an age limit on people.  Like 75-ish.

If I ruled the world, I'd make all the rich nations feed all the starving nations and give everyone birth control so we can stop over populating the planet. I'd also tell the world to stop it with the global warming, because I kind of like polar bears and stuff. And no more cutting down the rain forests. 

And then I'd kill anyone who pissed me off. It is my world, after all, and some people just shouldn't be here. Or maybe I'd send them to another planet and force them to live elsewhere. Yeah. Maybe that.

When I rule the world, we will wear togas to get rid of the competition of fashion. And males will be kept underground for breeding purposes.

If I ruled the world, I would make Ferran Adria be my personal chef, I'd get a new car, and my  personal army would dress up like a Roman Legion (post Marius), burn down anheiser-busch headquarters, and salt the earth.

So far, I don't think there's any conflict of ideas, so the sum of it all comes to:

-Fatties being fed to hungry people.
-Rich countries supporting not-rich countries.
-You die at 55 (like cows).
-Togas for everyone.
-Men living underground for "breeding" purposes (You know we'll be used for "non-breeding" too.  :wink: )
-No more global warming...  Just like that.
-And no more religions.

Neat.

Unicorns. Yes.

Unless these unicorns don't have wings. Then I may have to disagree. The flying kind are fun.

If I would rule the world I'd probably be the cause of a zombie breakout that spread across the world, leaving me and a few other pockets of survivors to take back the world or wait for them to die, and then rebuild society in a post-apocalyptic future.

This is actually what I want to happen, seriously guys, is there something wrong with me?

If?  IF?  The word you're looking for is WHEN.

Baseball will be instituted as a global religion, and the season will be extended to 365 days a year.  Sunlight will be abolished because it burns, it BURNS, and I love the rain.  This is not mutually exclusive with part one, as baseball in the rain is awesome.  Snow will also remain legal.  A complex algorithm involving a blindfold and a dartboard will be used to determine who lives and who dies, with JimmyTheSquid in charge of determining the methods of execution.  Also, those pussy polar bears in the Coca Cola ads would finally eat the bloody penguins, because one by one the penguins are stealing my sanity, and frankly I'm getting kind of sick of it.

I would install myself as the grand arbiter of sportsmanship over the whole world. I would have ultimate power over all appeals made by players. I would be able to reward and penalise teams and players based on whether they were playing in the spirit of the game. I would decide what is cricket and what is just not.

Then I'd leave everything up to whoever it's up to now but I'd be able to make public statements about governments and politics and businesses and people would take my opinion into account because I've helped bring goodwill back into sport and that's flowed on to the people who follow sport and on to the people who interact with them.

I think I would be a fairly boring ruler. I would probably spend the first couple weeks righting injustices, and that would be good, but after that I'd probably go back to fiddling with my computer all the time and only issuing proclamations in response to my advisers telling me there's some problem I need to deal with.

Hm... being an adviser instead of world leader may not be a bad idea, ya know. I get a say in how things are done, but none of the paperwork.

If I was an adviser to any major world leader, s/he would have a sign a notice ahead of time promising to not to hang me from the ceiling by putting my flesh on meat hooks. It's just thing I have against it, you know?

I would give everyone a number. Half of those numbers are randomly picked out of a hat and the corresponding people are killed. No people over 60. People with diseases left to die, it's called survival of the fittest not let the weak live. Hitler got it all wrong, he was far to racist, i vote for mass unspecific genocide.
