    Default What if you could stop time?

    You have the power to stop time by clicking your fingers. Time will stop for everyone and everything... except you. A second click will set time running again.

    You will not age during these periods.

    What would you do with this ability?

    I reckon I'd still manage to be late for work.

    That's assuming I still need to work. I'd probably just rob a bank or something.

    Basically do what I want. Sleep like everyone else said. Probably steal money. But not some crazy large amount that will get me in trouble. Just an extra hundreds of dollars to help with certain things every now and then.

    I'd use it to get large amounts of work done & make it seem like it took me no time @ all, making me look like a superstar @ work.

    Considering time is stopped it would probably be pretty much impossible to move anyway because everything that surrounds you, every particle, will be frozen, no matter if you perceive time as not stopped for you. You could not even blink as that also is rearranging particle's poistions below your eyelids and therefore it would still very much be like time is stopped for you.

    gag answer - i do not know. study and play games maybe.

    Go find people I dislike and give them wedgies/sprinkle itching powder down their back/etc.

    Hit something to impart kinetic energy to it, over and over, and see what happens when I restart time.

    I'd also have enough time to play all the video games!

    Download as many Japanese only VNs and games and Japanese study material as possible, then stop time, learn Japanese then play the games during stopped time.

    After that start considering possible ways of making a living this ability can be used for.

    I've seen that, yes!

    And I hate it, because now everyone will assume I got the idea from there, but I came up with it myself decades ago.

    I get pretty much enough sleep as is. Could maybe do with a nap on Thursday, at about midday. Thursdays at work are hard: you haven't got the "nearly the weekend" buzz.
    Humiliate Usain Bolt by wiping the floor with him: his ego could probably use a little deflation.
    Kill any mosquito or wasp who dared to approach me.
    I wouldn't have to wait literally 5ever at that crossing in central Reading near Great Expectations. OMG, that crossing is like, super annoying.
    Study and read a truly insane amount and become the world's greatest polymath.
    Annoy me slightly? Prepare to have your shoelaces tied together.
