      Welcome!   03/05/2016

      Welcome, everyone, to the new 910CMX Community Forums. I'm still working on getting them running, so things may change.  If you're a 910 Comic creator and need your forum recreated, let me know and I'll get on it right away.  I'll do my best to make this new place as fun as the last one!

The first thing I'd do....

Recommended Posts

This one's pretty free-form.  We take an event happening, such as winning the $500 million dollar Powerball, or discovering you could paint exactly what you picture in your head.  You say what the first thing you'd do with this talent is.  Following up with what you would eventually do with it is optional.

Start each entry by repeating the hypothetical you're referring to, as in, "If I discovered I could teleport, the first thing I'd do is...."  This allows us to introduce a new hypothetical when people lose interest in or have already replied to the current topic, but it also allows people who have just discovered or come back to the thread to catch up with whichever they choose.  Be as silly or as serious as you want!


So, to kick it off, let's start with "If I discovered I could teleport, the first thing I'd do...."

If I discovered I could teleport, the first thing I'd do is read a bunch of the great SF books that use teleportation.  Hear me out, the reason is that there are a lot of ways that an ability like that might go wrong, and I would want to figure out the limits and effects without hurting myself or anyone else.  Fiction has utilized this idea many, many times, and I suspect an awful lot of ways to test it safely and take advantage of it in creative ways have been thoroughly explored by some very smart writers!  It might help me to decide what to do in the long run, too -- join the space program, with zero launch-to-orbit costs for small payloads?  Earn money as a very quick, very secure courier?  Transport relief supplies to areas hit by catastrophes?  It would all depend on the details, and I'd need to not kill myself learning them in order to accomplish anything greater!

Oh, and I'd figure out good sites in DisneyWorld, Universal, and the San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park....  ;-)
