    [WINNER] 20 on the 20! October Edition

    Welcome back for another "20 on the 20" Monthly Giveaway!

    What is this? On the 20th of every month, $20 PSN bucks will be given away to one lucky member. non-US members will be sent $20 via PayPal. Sorry....just too difficult/expensive to buy PSN bucks overseas.

    First, da rulez.

    Contest starts: Right now.


    Contest Ends: October 20 at 8:00 PM EST.


    Requirements: Must have at least 50 posts to win.
    Why? This is a community event. Becoming part of this awesome community is its own reward. So join up, talk about video games, make some new friends, and have fun! But please, don't spam the forums to rush up to 50.


    Eligibility: Award is in USD, but this contest is available to anyone, not just US members. Amount of 20 USD will be converted to the equivalent amount in other currencies.

    Even if you are not eligible to win this month, feel free to join in the game.

    How winner be chosen: Valid and eligible entries will be recorded and numbered. Winning number will be chosen randomly.


    This month's challenge: Hypothetical questions

    I googled some hypothetical questions and found these.

    1. If you could learn any one skill in the world without trying (like Matrix learning style), which would you pick?
    2. If you could travel 50 years into the future, but never return, would you do it?
    3. If you could pick a single super power, what would it be and why?
    (answer any or all)

    WINNER:
    ARNOLDRIMMER!

    1. Coding.
    2. Yes, I would set up a savings account first.
    3. Flying, it would just be so much fun, and free transport.

    1. Coding, granted I could learn the top 5 most common languages.

    2. No. To many attachments, and I wouldn't want all the culture shock.

    3. Supernatural healing. Not to be mistaken with Wolverine's immortality.

    hmmm...

    1. Wilderness survival.

    2. No.

    3. Invisibility, because I'm a perv.

    1. Tactical Espionage

    2. No. Your future is already set without you knowing what to expect. If you can't return it could get worse! It'd be nice to see but 50 years from now is just a huge gamble.

    3. In today's world there's so much to choose from. I'd choose Instant Transmission; I'll be to teleport anywhere in the entire world or anything beyond earth. Also, I could save a lot of money. Don't need to depend on driving.

    1. Know all languages, I travel a fair bit and it would be good to converse in the local lingo wherever I am.
    2. No, life's pretty sweet right now
    3. The ability to destroy my enemies, with mind bullets

    More reliable than a garden strimmer
    He's never been mistaken for Yul Brynner

    1. To be a visionary just like Steve Jobs, my idol.

    2. No, doubt the future will be a lot better in 50 years than it is now. Also, I don't want to leave all my family and friends behind.

    3. Web swinging like Spider-Man, have been dreaming about that since I was a kid.

    3. %100 turn to electric, by that way, I can gain, invisiblity, super speed and become an undead.

    Tough one..
    Not sure on that one.
    Either one of these;
    - Coding (in any language)
    - Dj/Producer
    - Pro @ extreme sports

    Nah. Why skip 50 years? Also, 50 years forward is not that much of a difference in how things are so.. Nope.

    Either one of these..
    1. Mind reading when I want to do so, not continuously. Could be useful to get an 'estimate' about what type of person you're in contact with and can be handy in some situations, though I wouldn't always want to use it, cause it can cause damage too (not to myself but in relation to friends and such).
    2. Teleportation. I'd love to be able to just teleport to certain places, jhust so I could visit some people who're quite the distance away from me (e.g. friends in UK). Yes please <3

    Considering how much change there's been in the last century, who knows. Even 10 years ago we didn't have smartphones, and that changed a lot.

    Actually, if I recall right, the smartphone started coming up in 2004.. I think HTC had some released.

    1. Learn the well-known languages. Then go vacation looking like a major tourist but then bust out those skills.
    2. No. Quality of life would probably be better with some cool stuff to see/do, but this is the time you're alive. You would lose out on growing with your family and friends to see what is the latest tech craze.
    3. Teleport. People always go with flying, but I'd rather just be able to teleport anywhere at any time. Ever wonder what would happen if you could fly? That would mess up your hair, gotta wear rain gear if the weather sucks...etc.

    Let me rephrase that, there wasn't mass adoption. It only became prevalent with the IPhone.

    That I agree with..
    But yeah, if we look all together, it says 50 years. If we see 50 years BACK, people thought we'd already live on the moon and have flying cars and whatnot.
    While we may be closer to that than we think, it's still not reality.

    So I'd say in the next 50 years there will be changes, that's normal, but I don't think there'll be some groundbreaking things like living on the moon or Mars (with which I don't mean have 5/10 people there but a proper living community like we live on Earth).

    Who knows, its hard to predict. The smartphone itself is way better then a lot of old media envisioned future devices to be. The first controlled human flight and the first manned moon landing were separated by about 65 years.

    2. No simply because most of your loved ones wouldn't be there. Technology advancements would be cool to see but hopefully I would get there to see it one day.
    3. Teleportation like Scud said would probably be the coolest and most practical. You could save so much money and time just teleporting to the places you need or want to go. Of course this would have to come with the ability to take 1 passenger at a time.

    I might be able to manage that...

    I'll go for it next month for sure, but I could sure use those PSN$ before then. I'm not about to spam nonsense to up my post count, though. I've seen that happen on other sites, and it makes things really hard to read. Hey, I'll answer the questions anyway!

    1) Auto repair.

    2) Absolutely not.

    3) Meat vision!
