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.

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

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.
