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

[rebelmouse-image 18347620 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18347622 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18347623 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18347624 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Start working in mysterious ways.

Beam Me Up, Goddy

[rebelmouse-image 18347625 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Smitten

[rebelmouse-image 18347626 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

No Hate

[rebelmouse-image 18347627 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18347628 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

What To Do

[rebelmouse-image 18347629 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18347630 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18347631 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18347634 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18347636 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Zeus, Is That You?

[rebelmouse-image 18347637 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

F-ck everything in sight

Time Enough At Last

[rebelmouse-image 18347638 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Go to sleep. I'm tired.

Whoops

[rebelmouse-image 18347639 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18347641 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Playing A Game

[rebelmouse-image 18347642 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18347643 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18347644 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18347645 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
