King of the Universe

Post by commonsense »

If you were the King of the Universe, what would be the first item on your to-do list?

I would eliminate animus. This would allow humans to work out many problems they are now facing for themselves. Once people are living in harmony it will be possible to end world hunger, fight pandemic disease and spread literacy around the world.

Actually, the first thing to do would be to find a way to eliminate animosity. If I were King, I suppose I could enter the hearts and minds of everyone and cast a spell against hatred.

World peace—that’s what I would do first. Then I would sit back and watch all the world’s problems go away :)

As Queen of the Universe, I would bestow humans with awareness of the power and ripple-effect of the state/quality of their energy. So there would be no question as to their creations, involvement, responsibility, capability, etc. As a result, they would make more conscious and responsible choices.

I would bow to all that :)

I'd kill everyone, except the hot chicks...and I'd invoke super hornyness into them after my morning cup of tea.

I might let Danny DeVito live..he's funny.

everyone would dress in white, rhinestone-studded jumpsuits

when not parachuting, one will hang out in Las Vegas wedding chapels

there is the possibility that you will be observed making donuts in area 51

Eliminating an abstract is full of problems.
I would not have any animosity towards bad drugs, only good feelings about them. I'd probably die of heroin overdose.
No animosity toward Donald Trump, would mean I'd not bother to vote against him; since there is no one worth voting FOR, this would mean another term.
Animosity can be positive as well as negative. It can be deserved.

Were I King of the Universe I'd sterilize 6 billion humans, and engineer genetics to ensure that women could only ever have one child per ovary, where they to try to have more their uterus would disintegrate.

"King Of The Universe"

It's all making me ready
It's all doing what you gotta do
I know "A"
I see my life come shine

Golden sunrise
Tragic day dream
I am so afraid --

King of the Universe, Are you King of the Earth
King of the Universe, Are you King of the Sky
King of the Universe, Are you King of the Sky

Potentially a worthy successor.
But they did it backwards.
Beatles had the interesting stuff at the end; ELO at the start of their career.
