View Full Version : If you could own one thing in the world, what would it be?

Ground rules:

1. You can't sell it, trade it, or use it to make money or derive other financial benefits. If you make one dime in profit off of it, either directly or indirectly, it will be taken away from you. This is an item only for your own joy and pleasure. If you ask for a million dollars, it will merely be a huge stack of money that you can play with in your living room. If you ask for the original Constitution, you cannot charge admission to see it.

2. It has to be an item that is known to exist or reasonably known to exist and can reasonably be located. For example, you could not say that you want the alien bodies found in Roswell. However, you could say that you want the wreckage found in Roswell in 1947. You can ask for the Hope Diamond or the wreckage of the Titanic, but you cannot ask for a 20-foot diamond or Amelia Earhart's plane. You can ask for an autograph of Julius Caesar (probably reasonably exists somewhere), but you cannot ask for the cross on which Jesus was crucified (probably not around or we would have heard about it).

3. It must be an object or something else that is "ownable". You cannot ask for a Supermodel harem or for Mars. You cannot ask for services, such as "mind-blowing sex every day for the rest of my life." You cannot ask to be king of the world, or for plastic surgery that would make you the most attractive person in the world.

I'm still thinking about it, but I think it would be really cool to own the bones of Lucy, or whoever is now the oldest known hominid skeleton.

Clarification: I'm talking about the Lucy found in Olduvai Gorge, not Lucille Ball.

I would want ownership of the KC Chiefs.

First order of business is to fire Peterson.

2nd order of business is to hire Fax as director of advertisement as well as GM. His linguistic capabilities would entrance all other GM's to the point where they would willingly trade their 1st round pick for Scanlon and a carton of Spam.

But the brain is an object and the level of intelligence one possesses is "ownable".

How indirectly?
If hotties you'd normally have to wine and dine are throwing you freebies just because of your ownership of this item?

This is a tough one, Mr. Rain Man.

At first I thought I might want to own Spider Island. Then, I thought that a Hollywod strip club would be better. Or, maybe one of those terra cotta Chinese soldier guys for my living room.

But, I've settled on the goats franchise. Once installed as sole owner, I would release all of the club's financial information to the national press and sign a contract with Plummer that ensures he starts well into his 50s.

I'm glad this is for only one thing because I'd hate to be greedy asking for a bunch of various things I don't really need.

I'm kinda partial to the Gates Estate. Is it okay if I choose that? I don't even think there's a golf course on the property but I think we might be able to play indoors.

I was waiting for "what would you want with a lighthouse".

There are ramps in the back of ships that size that fall right into the water to bring up jetskis and smaller boats. Oh yes my good Rain Man, you can indeed fish of that vessel.

Can you just wait for the sonar to show fish in the vicinity, and then crank the propellors and just pick up the pieces that float up? That'd be much easier.

Actually, I changed my mind. I'd have a remote control that controls life like from the new movie coming out with Adam Sandler. How cool would that be? You could do anything you wanted. You would have power over everything. Tell of your boss, and then take a shit on his desk. Then just rewind and everything would be alright. Tell your wife that she's fat, then just rewind. Long day at your in-laws..fast forward. Girlfriend doesn't answer her phone? Pause..then drive around until you find her to make sure she's not gettin' rotisseried by two of your friends. What a glorious thing to own

Very, very nice. Well played. I'd want it IN Japan, though.

However, I'd have to go with a Buddhist temple in the mountains somewhere in China or Korea.
