[rebelmouse-image 18354090 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

_Who amongst us doesn't want to prove we're powerful beyond measure? And in order to do that we must take out the MOST power figures we know. Like... 'Lucifer!' And take him out by any means necessary. No seriously... any means, even ludicrous scenarios. Whatever works. _

Redditor __MittyPootsposed the thought... **_In a "Devil Went Down To Georgia" scenario, at what mundane competition could you beat the devil? **People are surprisingly cocky on this matter. _

GAME OF THRONES STYLE!

RATS AWAY TO THE FINISH LINE!

[rebelmouse-image 18354092 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'm quite good at the Ratatouille video game for the Wii. I remember I was a rat in a tin can with a paddle and I were to race other rats in tin cans with paddles. I think I came in 2nd place so I might win this time.

TIME FOR AN UPGRADE!

_The devil went down Georgia, he was looking for a soul to steal He was in a bind because he was way behind, so he was willing to make a deal When he come across this young man writin' queries and it was hot. An' the devil pulls up an office chair and says, _

_"Boy let me tell you what." _

_"I guess you didn't know it but I'm a DB admin too And if you care to take a dare I will make a bet with you You write a pretty good query son but give the devil his due I bet a Thinkpad of gold against your soul I think I'm better than you" Boy said, _

_"My names Johnny an' it might be a sin But I'll take your bet an' your gonna regret I'm the best that's ever been." _

Johnny crack your knuckles an' play that keyboard hard 'cause hell's broke loose in IT and the devil deals the cards But if you win you get this shiny Thinkpad made o' gold But if you lose the devil gets your soul The devil opened his Thinkpad an' said, "I'll start this show."

_Fire flew from his fingertips as his Thinkpad began to glow He dragged the mouse across the desk and it made an' evil hiss An' then a band of demons joined in an' it sounded somethin' like this [Demonic Typing Sounds] The devil finished, Johnny said, "Well your pretty good old son But sit down in that chair right there an' let me show you how it's done. _

_"CASE WHEN END SELECT * FROM [Johnny types] WHERE [The_Devil] = 'DUMB' [Johnny Types] Too many threads this server's slow [Johnny Types] Should we reboot it, "No dude no" [Solo] The devil bowed his head 'cause he knew that he'd been beat And he lay that golden ThinkPad on the ground at Johnny's feet Johnny said, "_

Devil come on back if you ever wanna try again I told you once you son o' b**_I'm the best that ever been" _

It's not mundane but I would challenge the devil to a game of Calvinball.

Get him to agree to a best 2 of 3.

First contest is 'who can think of the two games I am most likely to beat the devil at.'

BE STILL....

[rebelmouse-image 18978968 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Devil: How much longer are you planning on sitting here doing nothing?

Me: I have all day to win this golden couch. Feel free to leave any time.

Devil: No, I'm fine, just sort of sad.

Me: Wuss.

YAAAAS QUEEN!!

Dying. I'm mortal, he isn't.

READY. SET. GO!

[rebelmouse-image 18978973 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd probably go with a Diablo II race. Not that I even know anything about speed running the game, it just has to be a competition somehow and I'd just find it hilariously ironic.

THINK METHODICALLY.

[rebelmouse-image 18978974 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A race to see who can offer their soul to God the fastest.

Even if I lose, I win. Everyone wins.

We've all heard some conspiracy theories about certain businesses, most of which are outrageously false.

That laundromats are simply a facade for shadier practices (including, not so ironically, money laundering) or that the Coca-Cola company invented "New Coke" with the express purpose of improving sales on original Coke.

But every now and then, we can't help but wonder what really goes on behind closed doors in certain professions.

And are eager to hear all the juicy tidbits from people working in that industry.

Finding a healthy work/life balance is extremely difficult.

Depending on their jobs, some people are barely home in time to spend any quality time with their loved ones, and weekends are hardly relaxing, as they are often devoted to chores and errands.
