    My Plan for World Domination: Phase One

    I bought a drone! Muhuhahaha!

    Stay tuned for Phase Two: Learn to Fly Drone

    Was $70 and my will was weak.

    What is his learning you speak of...

    Throw away any instruction book, find the on button, and fly!!


    ...or maybe that's just what I would do...

    An Arizona man was arrested for flying a drone over a wildfire causing firefighting aircraft to be grounded, so be careful where you start your world conquest.

    Ha! Thinking phase three will involve googling a return policy, ;p

    I find your plan for world domination interesting. Always good to keep an eye on potential competitors for my own plans which I keep a secret.

    Interesting to note that one of Australia's most well known politicians, Pauline Hanson, has got herself into a spot of bother over her recent dalliance with a drone.

    You will need these two smilies for your plans





    And practice your evil laugh.

    Of course, some of us learned it in school.

    Phase 3 and 4: Repeat phase one.

    The first drone flies great (Someday) but the app it uses is just craptacular, so sits on shelf in closet now.

    Amazon stepped up and provided me with drone number 2, a user friendly learner drone by all accounts and worked great! Huge fun until it landed in the

    grass 50 feet away ( a meter or two for you blokes) ...and that was the last I ever saw it. Huge mystery; grass wasn't that tall but never found it. So,

    Amazon stepped up again because they appreciate budding world dominators and provided me with drone number 3 which, so far knock on wood, has

    given me a few actual minutes of flight time. Look out world!

    How many world leaders have ordered their armies to support your drone's military activities?

    As of this very moment? Almost one, if you drop the world leader requirement. PETA claims to have mobilized their troops but, ... c'mon, it's PETA...

    Should I post my complaints about the world here, or do you have a separate world domination website by now?

    Once you control the world, I would like to submit several requests for changes.

    I took over the world years ago, but I'm a kind hearted ruler who doesn't impose laws or taxes on his people.

    If I were you I'd hesitate before taking responsibility for the state of the world today!!

    I guess my first law will be no criticising the ruler.

    A plan I saw on another site:

    1) Invest in peanut butter
    2) Become supervillain trillionaire
    3) Replace all other foods with peanut butter

    Imperial is confusing and Metric is boring. That's why no criticism will be allowed. It wastes time stating the obvious.

    To be fair, I was actually criticizing the state of the world.

    As ruler, I could tell everyone, "Stop doing what you're doing." But then we'd have a higher crime rate.

    I would have thought the emperor of the world would choose Imperial.

    I'm more of a dictator than an emperor. I just haven't gotten around to issuing any orders yet.
