If you suddenly controlled the world's oxygen, what would you require of your new 6,928,198,253 minions?

I would of course tax oxygen consumption, and not for profit, but to be the catalyst to create the world order of Lace-Bane. Anyone who joins would be free of this tax, paid, and would be trained to bring justice. Anyone guilty of rape, molestation, murder, or similar crimes would be hunted down (Being in the order isn't an exception) and brought to a gas chamber where the life would be sucked from their lungs... because I would control oxygen... no better way to take the guilty's life I'd think :?. I'd also have the money required to hire advisors on how to control other problems and such, and hire awesome bodyguards >_>

One might say that having people killed for these crimes would suggest murder on my part, but there's a difference between murder and protecting the lives of others by removing threats. It sounds harsh, but the worst crimes are only here because there is no fear of the consequences of such actions >_>

Anyway, I don't ever intend to run in politics, so it's just thought for fun... Although the world does need to lose some of it's population >_>

No.

I don't agree with this. To many extenuating circumstances (mainly with the murder option, but also with the others)

I'd use it to create more oxygen and to recreate the ozone layer.

People wouldn't have to agree with it... I would control oxygen >_>

But away from that, my points were to create fear in the currently fearless :?. It would of course be a hunting after fair trial, not to mention it would be based on hunting those with murderous intent... there are accidental cases of murder which don't count in containing murderous intent :?. As far as rape and molestation... there would have to be substantial proof... not just an accusation. And if a false accusation was passed, there would be consequence as well. The key is fear. Most humans share a moving feeling to fear :?.

Anyway, It's a hypothetical question. People can feel safe that I don't run the world... I wouldn't want to :?

I'm also feeling incredibly stone-like today, so I may regret posting this at a later date >_>

To breathe freely and enjoy every breath.

But, I would not force anyone to.

I would have all politicians, dictators, presidents, and any one involved in the upper levels of the worlds governments, relegated to pig farming. Basically start over with a clean slate. I would then have mandatory IQ and psychological tests be necessary to have any form of government power. And then, I would sit back, and see what happens.

Sell it back to them in a can. In inflated prices & brand it "Super Oxygen" 10x better than your regular oxygen tanks. Then I would get 3 hot chicks, to advertise the can & 3 fireman for the others.

Then I would stick a reduced price on, that was never used.

I disagree with Alexander and I do agree with Lace-Bane that is a good idea.

I would trade it for all the WMDs I could get. Afterwards, I would unleash those WMDs on the civilized world, creating a real life version of Mad Max/Fallout. At last, my dreams of becoming a lone wanderer in a savage world inhabited by a few thousand broken people and many wild animals would be fulfilled.

...What an awfully convoluted plot... :?

I would make it a habit to have air evacuated from a room for a second as I enter a room - so people think I really am that cute.

I would also immediately have my henchmen find Arnold Schwarzenegger and kill him prior to him foiling my evil schemes (total recall) and/or prior to him posing bare bottomed for the newest terminator movie.
