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?

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