Question, April 4: Did you get fooled by the Easter Bunny or any other pranksters this year?

 

No, never happened...ever. Focusing on April Fool's Day & Easter does eliminate any 15th of the month questions; SO fire away with the Foolery & Bunny stuff.

Not bad, but I think I'd have given them a Passover. 

I am indifferent, though I have an academic sense that it's beneficial.   What I really want is to have shakers FOR my paint bottles. As in, some sort of goblins in a cage that will continua

it would not be a normal paint.   Glitter Medium!   Turning any colour into a glitter variant.

Nope.  Not once.  I saw some great RickRolls, immediately identified them, and smiled as others fell for the trap.

Question, April 5: Would you rather be Pope, Emperor, Dictator for Life or High King??

 

Arise, ye prisnoers of starvation!

Arise, ye wretched of the Earth!

 

D: none of the above. Being a tyrant/autocrat is not one of those things I have ever considered becoming.

I think we, humanity that is, would do quite well without the scum that aspire to such positions.

I would be a Dictator for exactly 5 minutes, then open the gates and yell:

 

You're freeeeeeeee!!

Honestly, I would rather be the guy behind the scenes, but if forced to choose between these two (I personally don't see much difference between the last three, realizing of course that dictator comes with a sense of "not good", but that's a different issue) I guess I would choose Pope and try to use my influence to steer people toward being better. I think it can be a lot easier to use faith to change people's beliefs, perspectives, etc., than legislation or decrees.

I don't know that I'm well-equipped for any of those positions.

High King implies that your planet has lesser kings. 

 

Dictator implies that your position is not necessarily hereditary. 

 

Emperor kindof assumes an Empire, and perhaps an army of robot minions or something. 

 

Also, Empress, & High Queen, are options... ...I think Dictator is gender neutral (Dictatress ?:unsure:

I'd go for something more grandiose like, The Supreme Being or The All-Powerful One.

 

But if I have to choose from the options provided I'll be an Emperor.

Given that it's my planet...  Guardian/Protector. ^_^

 

Treehouses galore! .... And ancient trees of course. 

 

My planet also implies it wouldn't have all that many people on it... At least in my chunk of it all.

These all seem like rather hard work.

 

I'd happily settle for Billionaire Playboy. (And with that much money, no one will make smartass comments about the last syllable.)

Just the opposite.  Anything but Pope.  The Church of the true popes did away with that title.  But if I say too much it will get sent to Beekeeper's

 

Completely understand, and I too was trying to be careful to avoid sending the discussion elsewhere.

Thanks for the clarification. I guess I was reading them all as "The Ultimate Political Authority". Obviously though there are good monarchs/emperors and bad ones, etc., and the title of dictator does tend to imply some nastiness, so I certainly wasn't trying to imply that they are all the same in outlook, etc.

      The rules: as they were last month (in addition to all regular forum rules) except where I sneakily changed them:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question. †
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day, a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... ††
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted sometime before 1 AM Reaper time (US Central).
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to Talespinner or Morihalda… 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
      8. Pix always welcome.
       
       
      The first question will need to be posted after a brief (10 minute) pause to foil the merging of posts.
      The footnotes, because I can't resist doing †††footnotes:
       
      † I will aim for 0600 Reaper/Nottingham time.
      ††  If subs and backstops could wait until 11AM in Reaper/Denton's timezone to see if I remember.
      ††† …because I re-remembered how to do the dagger ( † ) symbol.

      1. Every day a question will be posted (but see rule 7).

      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer the question of the day before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
