Creative People Imagine What They'd Do If They Became An All Powerful God

Can you imagine? At the flick of your finger you could control the weather, feed the hungry...so what would you do?

Tour_CRF asked Reddit:

Wow, you've officially become an all powerful God. Congratulations! What do you do now?

Here's what they had to say.

Create A Checkpoint

First thing I do is quicksave because I guarantee whatever I do next is gonna f-ck some s*** up and need to be redone.

Irony

I take the form of a crazy old homeless man and go around Times Square yelling at everyone that I'm God

Just Like God Himself

Start working in mysterious ways.

Beam Me Up, Goddy

Go around and f-ck with the crew of the Enterprise

Smitten

I'll be honest, there may be a bit of smiting.

No Hate

Wait for someone to deliver a very public hate speech and claim that what they're trying to do is god's will, then strike them with lightning.

Pests Begone

I patch all species of cockroaches, bedbugs, fleas, and all parasites out of existence. Goodbye, you will not be missed.

What To Do

Hm, I'm torn. My first thought was to solve a bunch of the world's problems (disease, hunger, energy, etc.) but I wouldn't want humans to be completely reliant on me for everything.

So I guess I'd act more like a muse. Set some things in motion so some random person is inspired and discovers that apple juice cures cancer or something.

Ensure Survival

Get revenge on those who wronged me, then realize its quite petty and give up on it. Repopulate honeybees and give us our Ozone back.

Knock It Off

Go on the Earth intercom and announce: "Hey it's God. You guys better quit that racket before I come down there!" Then sit back and watch the reactions of the World. Not gonna lie, I daydream about this specific fantasy a lot.

Requests

Hire a bunch of people to screen all my prayer requests.

Rid this man's son of Cancer? Done.

Help the Steelers win? REQUEST F-CKING DENIED

This Sounds Familiar

Probably collect some wood and start building my Civilization into the modern age before ghandi goes nuclear

Zeus, Is That You?

F-ck everything in sight

Time Enough At Last

Go to sleep. I'm tired.

Whoops

In order:

-Destroy universe due to stray thought

-Reset universe back to previous state

-Destroy universe due to stray thought again

-Make it so only my explicitly intended thoughts take effect

-Reset universe back to pre-destroyed state again

-Make myself mentally capable of handling all this power

-Probably just live out relatively mortal fantasies rather than doing anything big.

Journey

Create Atlantis, leave it alone so people realize what it is.....then hide it again.

Playing A Game

I'd give people social points system. You can accumulate points by being nice. Points will add hours to your life. If you're a jerk you get points taken away.

Hide Out

I would probably first experiment with lifting things with my mind, and levitation/flying. Go and see some things. Try out invisibility, and pausing time.

Experiment more and more with my abilities, see what I am capable of, and, as I get good at things, start to try and make the world a better place, in a few areas where I can. Maybe explore space a bit.

I think I wouldn't mess around with the world too much. Nobody needs to know about me. Nobody needs to thank me or fear me or pray to me. I'd just do my own thing and quietly meddle here and there where I see fit.

A Little Bit Of Good

To do list:

1) Find the Cure for Cancer.

2) Make all medical and public services free.

3) Announce god-hood and claim god king status.

4) find a wife.

5) get backstabbed by children who want to claim god-king status.

Society Rules

Increase the level of empathy in humans. From there, I tweak society a little to actually make selfless people who help others cool and desirable. Then I set up my church to be focused on service to others and helping make the world a better place.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
