World’s Best Widget: You’ve been granted magical engineering skills, but you can only use them to build one gadget or machine. What do you build?
I have no idea what single gadget or machine I would build. Maybe one that cured world hunger or that vanishes every weapon in the world. Actually I like that second one because its implementation could prove interesting.
Any object that could be used as a weapon disappears. So depending on the definition of weapon, this could include a large number of things. If a weapon is defined as something that causes harm. This could include utensils, vehicles, or even television programmes. Poof, all gone.
Even words could disappear because as Sara Bareilles sings:
“You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug” (Brave)
Pretty much anything can be deemed a weapon and therefore disappear with this machine.
As humans can we even create something that does not have the potential to be a weapon?
