If I Were an Evil Overlord

Right…so you are an Evil Overlord. What should you be doing? Thankfully, you can now learn from the grisly deaths of a few previous ones. How? There exists an amusing list of tips, do’s, and don’ts that I would advise any Evil Overlord (with a trusty Legion of Terror) to consider. I have to say I was impressed. If you aren’t even likely to become an E.O. (not far from CEO, eh?), the list is a good read anyway.

On a similar note, I am of the opinion that there is room for another equally useful list, ‘Lessons Learned from Hollywood’, that should be mandatory reading for all schoolchildren and scriptwriters (tiresome cliches anyone?).

The first few entries would go:

1. Never, ever, go into an abandoned building (especially if the front door is unlocked and slightly ajar).

2. Never split up when exploring a hazardous environment.

3. Always design robots with an easily accessible on/off switch (and prevent the robot from being able to reprogram it).

4. Better yet, don’t make AI at all.

I welcome any suggestions that the reader may have.
