… then here’s the plan: Follow the advice given in The Top 100 Things I’d Do If I Ever Became An Evil Overlord. Including:
- My Legions of Terror will have helmets with clear plexiglass visors, not face-concealing ones.
- I will not interrogate my enemies in the inner sanctum — a small hotel well outside my borders will work just as well.
- If my advisors ask “Why are you risking everything on such a mad scheme?”, I will not proceed until I have a response that satisfies them.
- My vats of hazardous chemicals will be covered when not in use. Also, I will not construct walkways above them.
Sure, the list is a decade old, but I only found out about it just now from author John Birmingham, who continues the discussion.
