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.

Oh the beginning of the interwebs.

We really thought it wouldn't be much of a fuss.

We definitely did not see what was to come.

Maybe it should've stayed simple.

We'll never know.

Computers rule the world now.

The internet is God.

Let's see where we are in another twenty years.

Those were the days.

Not all television and movies are loved by all.

A story and its characters have to appeal to you in order for you to be engaged.

It can take next to nothing for us to lose interest and let the screen go black.

People Debate The Worst Ways Someone Can Die

I fear death.

I wake up in cold sweats dreaming about it.

I think about it in my waking hours.

It's an obsession and clearly, I'm not alone.

But there are more preferred ways to exit.

All we can do is hope to be lucky enough to skip the mercilessly awful.

Please just let me go quick and in my sleep.

Foreigners Explain Which Stereotypically American Things They've Always Wanted To Try

Most Americans think nothing of their humdrum daily activities or amenities available to them.

However, others with a different perspective might romanticize the things that are otherwise commonplace ideas and concepts for US citizens, like going to a diner or riding the school bus.
