Mischievous people can't help themselves when it comes to screwing around with people.

Prank-happy folks like to plot out the schemes that entail hiding around the corner and scaring the living daylights out of unsuspecting coworkers, or concocting an alarming story to family members, only to reassure them everything is fine.
Imagine then, if these pranksters had the supreme ability to do so much more with humanity.
Redditor DoNotCareAnymore_ had an ultimate hypothetical and asked strangers on the internet:
"If you were God, what would you do to mess with people?"

These are just cruel divine interventions.

A Missing Garment And Power Failure

"I'd make people's socks disappear one by one. I'd also burn out the light bulbs in their refrigerators."


Disembodied Voice

"'behind you' in an ominous voice."


Some Rearranging

"Change people's furniture around randomly."


Invasive Marketing

"crappy mobile game ads randomly appearing in their vision."


"And make the 'x' so small that you can't remove it."

"Also this comment is sponsored by raid shadow legends."

Sending special visitors down to earth is the name of the game here.

Mythical Creaturs In Our Midst

"Make all kinds of fantasy creatures real and have them live secretly among humans or hidden in unexplored places."

"Unicorns, Fairies, Elves, Dwarves, Dragons, Mermaids, Lizard Folk, Bird Folk, Angels, Demons, Werewolves, Vampires, etc."


Tipsy Archangel

"Every fifth visitation from the angel Gabriel to earth, I would send him down roaring drunk - I mean absolutely battered."


"With a flaming sword, so he can do party tricks."


Drawn-Out Manipulation

"Talk to them a whole bunch. Send a kid down there, perform some miracles and just really reinforce that I exist. Then just ghost them for hundreds of years to see what happens."


What happens next? The following experiments are all about observing the reactions.

Homogeneity ​

"Make everyone the exact same color and speak one language and see what happens."


Cause Chaos

"Answer their prayers. No one would expect it and it would create chaos..... The lottery being split between 50 million people would be a real bummer."


Reassurance In Times Of Distress

"Whisper 'I love you' several times in their ears whenever they're confused, stressed, irritated, tensed, angry, sad, in other sh**ty moods."


If I was a divine entity, I would cause alarm in people's kitchens.

When someone puts a frozen entree in the microwave, I would make it disappear.

By the time the timer goes off, the amateur cook would open the microwave and see emptiness. I wouldn't hold out on them though.

I would make their "heated" food reappear in the fridge.

Mean, I know. But hey, I'm just responding to the Redditor posing the question.

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!

One of the most freeing realizations I've had was when I understood that not everyone was going to like me.

That's just the way it is for all of us, and I learned that it would be unfair for me to dedicate so much time worrying about what others might think.

It changed my life—improved it, I'd say.

That, combined with my willingness to take responsibility for my own actions, was crucial to my self-development.

Whether it's an epiphany or experience, there are many things that can happen and can successfully shift your perspective.

People shared their stories after Redditor drewyourstory asked the online community:

"What life event or experience changed your perspective?"
