what things you would do, If you ever became an evil overlord ???
This list is an old thing in internet (maybe 10 years ago). basicaly is a collection of the common and stupid mistakes that the bad guys always do in books and movies.
here some (caution!!! don´t read before go to the cinema to watch action movies):
- When I have captured my adversary and he says, Look, before you kill me, will you at least tell me what this is all about?- I will say: -No- and shoot him. No, on second thought I will shoot him then say -NO-
- After I kidnap the beautiful princess, we will be married immediately in a quiet civil ceremony, not a lavish spectacle in three weeks time during which the final phase of my plan will be carried out.
- One of my advisors will be an average five-year-old child. Any flaws in my plan that he is able to spot will be corrected before implementation.
- The hero is not entitled to a last kiss, a last cigarette, or any other form of last request.
- I will not have a daughter. She would be as beautiful as she was evil, but one look at the hero's rugged countenance and she'd betray her own father.
- No matter how tempted I am with the prospect of unlimited power, I will not consume any energy field bigger than my head.
- My pet monster will be kept in a secure cage from which it cannot escape and into which I could not accidentally stumble.
- I will not fly into a rage and kill a messenger who brings me bad news just to illustrate how evil I really am. Good messengers are hard to come by.
- I will maintain a healthy amount of skepticism when I capture the beautiful rebel and she claims she is attracted to my power and good looks and will gladly betray her companions if I just let her in on my plans.
- If the beautiful princess that I capture says: I will never marry you! Never, do you hear me, NEVER!!! I will say: Oh well. and kill her.
