Then nerds really would rule the world.

What if your parents rolled your character stats at birth like a D&D character?

I do not know too much about DnD*. Maybe because my parents rolled 1 on intelligence stat ?

What if Wizards of the Coast company was expropriated and democratically controlled by public ?


*I am really not into roleplaying. I enjoy reading rulebooks tho.

We would get lots of awesome stuff, but it wouldn't fit together cohesively and power creep would be a huge issue.

What if all government decisions were directly voted on by the public?

There wouldn't be any "governments" to begin with.
(If you want in-depth discussion, just pos it in off-topic)

What if humans will suddenly became 2 times more intelligent ?

Then we could levitate things with our minds.

Why are houses so expensive?

I think you wanted to say "what if houses would be even more expensive ?"

Depends on a reason of this. But one thing is sure : communal apartments would be popular not only in former USSR.

What if aliens are actually settled all over our galaxy, and do not communicate with us just to troll us ?

Then they deserve to watch all the junk we beam out on tv broadcasts.

What if an alien species based their whole culture around our tv broadcasts.

Poor unfortunate aliens :cry:
Not only do they still have culture, they based it around ours...
I feel ashamed and pityful :cry:

What if we'd have more -centered stories, books, movies and games ?

The logical conclusion then would be that our society would have colonized the moon by this point. Assuming of course, sufficient :u:-saturation.

What if all media were :r:-centric?

Our media is extremely -centric right now.
Look at the movies: "Serious" films are most often centered around love, war, or freedom, sometimes around creativity. "Lighthearted" most often exploit our basic emotions of fear (horrors), humor (comedies), or sexual attractions (erotica).
If it would be even more , societies would start to crack.

What if media was more -centric ?

Then it would be all game shows and reality tv, with an unusually large number of commercials. Self help shows could be a thing too.

What if there was somebody who watched you from the other side of your tv screen?

Whenever I get paranoid, I start to scream profanities and insults to whoever secretly watching me.
So I guess that that person would be a little surprised...

What if there was a device able to detect objectively awful people on sight ?

Then politics would look very, very, very, very, very different. Elections would consist of an IQ test and altruism scan.

What if we flew airplanes instead of driving cars?

There would be no "cities". All buildings would scatter around large areas. Or parking space deficit would devour everything.

What if Trump is Putin's clone ?

What if that's not hypothetical?

What if a human/clown hybrid became head of state?

Fun fact: clowns are genetically humans. (And humans are genetically apes, if that wasn't fun enough)

What if our universe is a MTG Multiverse plane ?

Then it's one of those all-artifact sets.

What if all tape was sticky on both sides?

"Trust me, I am an engineer !
I think we put this thing... right here...?"

(LOL OMG from where such thoughts even come ??? LOL)

What if MTG was based in another, actually good setting - Planechase, for example ?

(Can you do more then 1 game post at a time ? No pressure, just asking...)

If MTG was based on Planechase, then MTG's early years would have been much smoother.

What if MTG started out as a digital game?

(I think you can double post if the thread's slowed down enough. Otherwise, you can't post twice in a row.)

It would get forgotten soon enough, but would spawn hundreds of clones. And they would be quickly forgotten too.

BUT I MEANT Planescape, obviously ! What if MTG was Planescape based ?
