You’ve been given the opportunity to send one message to one person you wouldn’t normally have access to (for example: the President. Kim Kardashian. A coffee grower in Ethiopia). Who’s the person you choose, and what’s the message?
So basically, you’re saying I’ve just installed Twitter…??
500 years from now, an archaeologist accidentally stumbles on the ruins of your home, long buried underground. What will she learn about early-21st-century humans by going through (what remains of) your stuff?
Angela blew the whistle with so much excitement and threw her hands up in the air, ‘Guys! Guys! I found something! Quick, come and be I it out!’ As she waited for the others to stop what they were doing and come over, Angela pressed a button and a small drone began to levitate over one area with a small brush to start gently brushing away layers of dirt from the partially uncovered object.
Remember those lovely genies who grant wishes? Well, you’re one and you’ve just been emancipated from your restrictive lamp. You can give your three wishes to whomever you want. Who do you give your three wishes to, and why?
First of all, I’d be taking one of those wishes for the person who confined me to the lamp in the first place… Seriously, you don’t fuck with a genie and think that you can just get away with it… Continue reading →
The friendly, English-speaking extraterrestrial you run into outside your house is asking you to recommend the one book, movie, or song that explains what humans are all about. What do you pick?
Hang on, are these those annoying extraterrestrials that are still on tv doing the Budget Direct commercials?
For those of you who aren’t from Australia, please don’t judge us for commercials like this. Somebody, somewhere was paid a fortune for coming up with this unbelievably ridiculous marketing campaign. Nobody really gets it, nor do people actually enjoy them.
So, I just imagine that I would be talking to these two fools… having to then explain humans to them. In saying that, you’d kind of think that being extraterrestrials who had already infiltrated the human race, one would assume that they would have already done their own research; their own study into the human race, their behaviours and interactions… maybe they would want an explanation as to why we behave they way we do… trying to explain why we instigate wars, why we preach hate, why we use God and religion as a excuse to justify it all, why we have so much corruption, and segregation between classes and societies.
However, I think that in order to get to all of that, you would need to go all the way back to where it all began. I’d recommend something like ‘On The Origin of Species’ which was written by Charles Darwin back in 1859 in which he famously published his theory of evolution and his theory of natural selection. Although in saying that, one would have to assume that these ‘beings’; these ‘advanced life forms’ should already know all of this, however, there would also be the possibility that although they may be a species hundred, thousands or even millions of years older than the human race, they may not actually know anything about us, who we are, how we came to be.
You have been transformed into a mystical being who has the ability to do magic. Describe your new abilities in detail. How will you use your new skills?
So, if I can do magic, then I want to be able to do any kind of magic. Good, bad, let me do it all.
I must admit, that I’ve just finished watching the current season of Once Upon A Time and the Queen (Regina) is suuuuuuch a bitch. She’s so fucking evil, so you just spend the entire series waiting for some do-gooder to unleash some major take-down and knock some sense and rationale into her…
I imagine that I’d be more inclined to be an evil bitch just like Regina,
however, I would balance it out by doing some good magic to counteract all the evil I unleash.
You piss me off, I turn you into a frog. Or set you on fire. Or vanquish you to another world. Do the right thing by me and I’ll grant you a wish, like a genie. I’d help the unfortunate. I’d end world hunger. I’d end war in the middle east. I’d fix governments.
If I can’t have any of that type of power, then I’d at least like the ability to
make myself invisible
read people’s minds / memories
erase people’s memories
inflict instant karma upon those who wrong others.
set a bitch on fire… let’s face it, sometimes you just wish you could burn a bitch.
