    If I had the power to change the world right now, I would get rid of cancer. Find a cure that doesn't kill the patient. I won't be able to help on this... I wouldn't be able to tell Coke and Cough medicine apart if it weren't printed on the bottle.

    Series, ever thought about the fact that helping the world might help yourself, too ? Or your loved ones ? Or maybe just the guy who's giving you a free ride tomorrow ?

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    I just want this world to be a better place, I don't care about who changes it, I just want this place to be better.

    As for stealing your ideas, NO!, I have my own ideas, but I doubt I can ever put them into action. Michelle is right, this is a thread just for fun!

    If we can destroy (slaughter) all the hackers in the world, this is perfect (at least in the computing society)

    >I personally think that people are born evil...I mean, babies cry like it's the end of the world when the mom forgot to feed it...geez, talk about selfish... <
    Why is it selfish to want to eat (live). Babies have no way to comunicate, what do you whant them to do. Say Yo mom, I wan't to eat.

    People are born neither good nor bad, they are neutral and change based on influnces, and insights.

    In order to make the world perfect we must blow it up, since that is only way for it to perfect, is for it not exsit.

    Well since I (and probably you) don't want to stop existing,to improve life, people need to relize that some people are evil, and need to be removed. Also people need to realize why someone is doing something.

    A Spanish philosopher said:

    "Yo soy yo y las circunstancias que me rodean"


    gamegod3001: probably you don't understand Spanish, so I translate it more or less. It says that I or me (I don't know wich one to use in English), talking about a person, is himself "plus" the circunstances around himself. I don't know if it's very clear, but it says that a person has some innate characteristics, but they are modified/developed by everything arround you (other people, culture, anything).
    The thing is that you are NOT born neutral.

    I hope you understand what I've tried to explain

    OK, I know. But the truth is that I don't know what will help this world and what will not. To share my opinions with others is not always a good thing to do, that's for sure. Sometimes I might believe that I'm doing something helpful and nice, when in fact it is just causing more damage than it helps. People are different from each other, therefore, what I think is good might be bad for someone else. It's hard.

    If everyone was like me, I'd know exactly how to make this world a better place. So, I actually meant what I said: I'm only interested in making my own life better.

    Hmmm, alright, a cure for cancer would probably not hurt anyone, but who knows?

    Maybe that's a good thing. If your ideas for a better world involve other humans, their ideas will contradict yours. This would only lead to conflicts.

    when I ask to myself that question, I think on a forgotten book phrase: 'it is more easy to use soft shoes than putting a carpet around the world', Kant says that the world is what you make from it, you create the experience, so if you are not happy with your world it is because you are mad.

    Nice one


    You can't change the world; in fact: you can hardly change yourself!! but that's good enough.

    I'd make everyone take a test before they tried to have a kid. You need a liscense to fish, but you can be a complete idiot and you can breed as much as you want, look at a Jerry Springer episode!
    Then I'd give everyone (of legal driving age) a flying car and cover all the roads with grass and parks (except racetracks, they're ok)
    Don't talk to strangers, unless they offer candy.
