Death Note

Postby Dork_Lord » Tue Jul 15, 2008 4:40 pm

If you're not familiar with the plot of Death Note, I'll explain it now.

A Death Note is a notebook that causes the people whoever's name is written in it to die. The writer must know the victims face so only the intended victim will die. The cause of death, unless specified is a heart attack 40 seconds after the name is written. The circumstances and cause can be specified, and will happen at the specified time, but if the conditions are impossible then the victim will die of a heart attack.

The main character of Death Note, decides to use his notebook to kill serious criminals in order to make the world a place full of good people that he accepts.

My question to you is, what would you do if you came into posession of one?

I would use it to eliminate Fall out boy, my chemical romance, Mcfly, Avril lavigne.
I'd put an end to certain producers, the weinstein brothers especially.
I would get the names of everyone who's ever been on Big brother and put them in.
Certain politicians would go in.
Of course murderers would go in there also.
Oh and everyone who wears ramones and che guivara shirts as some sort of fashion staement without knowing who they even are.

Burn it. I don't like the ideaa of being responsible for someone's death, even if they had killed someone.

Although, getting rid of anyone responsible for 'Little Britton' would be good - i really don't like that show.

Agreed chocolate fudge cake. The show was good at first but then it just got worse and worse. Katherine tate has always been a bad show.

I'm not sure. On the one hand, killing those who've killed or who are going to kill might be useful but on the other, in the wrong hands it could be really dangerous. To quote 'Flight of dragons' - 'without evil there would be no goodness in the world'.

I probably wouldn't use it, there are a lot of people who do bad things but it's more of a punishment to go to jail than die.

Exactly. There are a lot of things worse than death. Plus, if you kill a killer, aren't you just as bad as them?

Oh, if I got a deathnote there's lots I could do. I'd also be a lot more subtle about it. Before you know it I would be in a position to rule the world with an iron fist and a scary power high :twisted: Mwahahaha!

...All I need now is a puppet to take the fall if things go wrong.
Er, and an, um, deathnote... *qickly shuts the draw*

Seriously though I wouldn't use it. Although, I might be tempted to kill some of the worlds more damaging leaders, so I don't know. It'd certainly be a moral dilema. Given there are pepole in the world who are killing alot of pepole, wouldn't it be worse too leave them to kill inocent pepole than to kill them...

I think that's partly the line of thought deathnote is about. He's only a little more extreme than that to begin with, killing murderers and pepole like that. Then the power corrupts him. So he's not so unlike everyone else. Or mabye that's just my enterpratation.

I'm not sure what I'd do if I had a Death Note, I think I'd probably go on a bit of a Kira.

I'd put "Death Note" as the first name creating a paradox.

ah, but how can an inanimate object die? The rules say a person!

THAT is a paradox!
