    To run my very own mansion/family theme park.  It sounds like so much fun, and if you can't fail there is no down side too.

    I believe that the next step in the mind's evolution will be one where the ego's hold on our psychology is replaced by one where the psyche is more dominant. I read somewhere that in dreams you need to understand that everything is you, not just the dreaming ego. As I believe that this way of looking at the world would help the ego negotiate with the problems it experiences in reality better and make the world a happier place I would like to help people achieve this in some way.

    I would invent a brain washing pill and a machine that erases the human memories and use it on myself smile

    If I knew I could not fail I'd get bored really fast. Half the fun in my life has been wondering of I would fail. It's a massive incentive to try your hardest and put your heart and soul into everything you do.

    For instance, half the fun of asking out my girlfriend was the process of coming up with ways to ask her on dates and facilitate any feelings she may have had for me. If I had known that there was no chance of my failing, it wouldn't have been as much fun. Uncertainty is certainly one of the greatest pleasures. I truly prefer to wake up everyday wondering if my efforts will be good enough. If not, I enjoy improving myself. If so, then I enjoy celebrating my efforts and my successes. If there was no failure, victory would have no satisfaction.

    So to answer your question, if I knew I would not fail, then I would attempt my hardest to fail.

    I think I would open a lunch wagon if there were no chance of failure.  I've always wanted to open some kind of eatery, and lately I've been thinking how cool a lunch wagon would be downtown.

    Nothing. What is the fun in attempting something that you already know you are going to succeed at?

    Life would be boring with no possibility of failure. The feeling of success exists, because so does the feeling of failure.

    winning the lottery would be a start, also proving that ghosts exist beyond all reasonable doubt.
