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.

Many people live by the mantra that ignorance is bliss.

Americans often drop popular sayings in conversation that have some element of truth to them.

No two people share exactly the same likes and interests.

But on occasion, one might find themselves being among the few, if not the sole members of a certain fan club.

Indeed, while Cats earned a place on the list of the worst movies of all time, its 19% score on Rotten Tomatoes suggests that there are a handful of people who actually liked it.

Or while many people dread having to clean their homes, some simply can't wait to get started, and will look for any and every opportunity to do so.

Redditor StardustNova_ was curious to hear where members of the Reddit community found themselves in a distinct minority of appreciation, leading them to ask:

"What's something you like that the vast majority people hate?"

It's usually a good feeling to be "on top".

To be found at the top of the list of a notable or unique accomplishment.

Though having the distinction of being in the top 0.1 percent of something might not always be something to brag about, resulting in some keeping this distinction to themselves.

If only because some people might be unusually fascinated by their so-called "accomplishment", that they'll never stop being bombarded by questions.

Redditor ImLostInTheForrest was curious to hear if any members of the Reddit community believed they were in the 0.1 percent of anything, be it commendable, bizarre or unfortunate, leading them to ask:

"What’s something you believe you may be in the 0.1% of?"
