You can stop time...what do you do?

Asked by trudacia (2508points) September 9th, 2008 from iPhone

You can stop time but only once. You can do anything humanly possible without repercussion. What do you do?

Rob a bank? Steal a famous painting? Steal from the rich and give to the poor? Pass on stopping time because it’s too scary?

I would go around to as many ginormous gas company CEOs as I could and write out checks for millions of dollars from their personal accounts and then cash them. They’re robbing us every day… time to take it back!

I’d go around to furniture stores with my scissors and cut off that tag that says “do not remove under penalty of law” from all the pillows and mattresses.

I would go to the IRS master computers and would erase all the data from every single hard drive they have, worldwide, crippling their entire system, permanently, so when time was restored, they would have no more knowledge about anyone, regarding who they were, what they earned, and what (if anything) they owed.

I’m sure that would give me an erection, too.

I’d make a scheme to take ten cents out of every single banck account and transfer to mine in Switzerland, it would be big enough to buy lots, lots of hot things :)

Just go to a REALLY boring meeting that you have no function at – that stops time all right.

JackAdams's avatar

Good observation!

Also, listening to boring sermons in church will do it, too.

Nice dream. I wish I could.
