Question of the Day #782

H and I always joke about her plan to take over the world. We imagine her in a lone house in the middle of the desert (somewhere around State Line) with a giant satellite dish and a huge computer board that looks like something out of War Games. Or maybe a little like a recording studio. (This is total freak fiction. Let us roll with it.)

I just asked her, "But if you're going to take over the world, what would you change?"

That of course, spurred uproarious laughter and the answer, "Uh, I don't know."

So if you took over the world, what rules would you create?



  1. Oh, man. Let me think. I'd start with more equality in education. But I'd have to think very hard about others. Oh! And convicted pedophiles be castrated (I'm serious! There are too many repeat offenders!). I'm all about advocating for children so I'll start with those!

  2. I'm with Grammilou!

    I would also institute an annual one week of community service.

    Oh, and when I walk into a room everyone must tell me how beautiful I am.

  3. One more rule in LisaD-land:

    The Spoiled Adult Rule, aka SAR (not to be confused with the SAR's virus). If any adult is found to be treating someone in a service field in a demeaning, disrespectful way, that said adult has to publicly apologize and work that person's job for a week. I will have undercover agents patrolling nail salons, restaurants, hotels, service stations, etc.

    Okay, done. ; )

  4. 1. money-free society. Barter for your needs, so everyone has a fair chance of getting them met. Those who work harder have more bartering power than the slackers. There would be no greed, no debt, no taxes, and no welfare that way. (I obviously don't have all the details figured out, because we'd still need a way to have roads, security, care for those who are really unable to work, etc...)

    2. Should we have health insurance, make natural remedies just as well provided for as the toxic drugs from the pharmaceutical companies. Why in the world would insurance companies ONLY pay for gastric by-pass surgery instead of less invasive, life-threatening measures for weight control??

    3. Teach students HOW to think instead of WHAT to think. Provide them with incentives to become entrepreneurs instead of just worker-bees.

    There are more, I am sure. :D Those were the top three, though.

  5. Rule 1 - No bare feet
    Rule 2 - No fighting
    bliss would ensue!
