The What if game

I haven't seen this game on LF yet, but I have seen it elsewhere, so I thought I might as well start one. Quite simple, someone asks a What If question, and the next person answers and posts another, and so on and so forth.

What if the threads I started were actually popular for the most part?

Then the world would end.

What if I think that this is sort of like a restricted "Ask a Stupid Question" thread?

Then you're a smart one.

What if noone else realises that?

Then they're not so good at connective thinking.

What if we're the only ones who post in this thread?

Then we'll be a lonely little thread.

What if the forum blew up?


Chapter 12 of A Soul Adrift is out.

Short stories:
T'katlu: On the planet Felucia, a young apprentice of the Dark Side thinks back to the beginning of her training as she lies in wait for her prey...

All the Time: After four years in the Unknown Regions, the Exile returns to the known galaxy to visit an old enemy.

Broken: A master of the Dark Side finds himself about to lose the one thing he cares about--and he will do anything to stop her from endangering herself.

Then we'd all be very confused as to how something that does not physically exist can explode in the first place.

What if I could solve any problem by hitting it with a wrench?

Then you could make a fortune on problem solving.

What if I could throw any weapon and get a stick?

Then everyone's sexual orientation would be reversed, too.

What if salmonella was something that was actually good for you?

Then Turkeys would be really heavy, and space would be a gooey, tasty mess.

Then the AI could certainly spice up the world a little bit.

What if every word had a different meaning for every single person?

I'd master the Vaapad form and beat the crap out of Vader, then go after his boss to avenge Jules in Windu form. And I'd weild silver lightsabers--so you see, I'm not a complete canon whore.

--OH, and if that included RPs that didn't conflict with canon...well, I'd have synth lungs right now b/c my HK unit of mysterious origins from mustafar decided to go all general greivous on me when I least expected it.

What if that 70's show was real?

I'd start killing people with a giant "toy" and jack enough cash to pay it all back.

WWYDI Violent J took a **** on a teacher's desk--belonging to a teacher you resented. Then his buddy Shaggy 2 Dope decided to skullF*** William Ayers with a broomstick through his eyesockets?

Well, if they're the later models, you'd never know....would you (until the second or so before/as they terminated you).
