A citizen of above average intelligence with a college degree, but the Secret Service will stop at nothing to ensure they are crossfaded (drunk + high) at all times

High Percent answer = Manifold would vote for Trump instead of this person
Low Percent answer = Manifold would vote for this person instead of Trump

Will be resolved by a poll for each option when the market closes.

Sort by:
bought Ṁ50 Vaush NO

Wait, why are some of these options the same as ones from the original market?

@strutheo said he copied some of them over to the original market when space opened up.

yes i want to move them over and close it so theyre all in one place ideally

Barack Obama, but the world has a 1% chance to end instantly if he wins

He - who? If who wins?

Does it say "the end of the world", or the world has a 1% to end the "he"?

@KongoLandwalker if obama wins, there is a 1% chance the worl ends

The exhumed corpse of George Washington (rather than alive during his prime), with a sign around his neck at all times reading 'slave owner' in red lettering

How is this different from the can of beans, except optics?

@Najawin repeating what I said in other threads below:

"

Part of me suspects that the nature of an inanimate object elected might still influence things a bit because people could feel emboldened to make certain changes as a sort of worship towards a totem e.g. I suspect racial violence and oppression would increase at least a little under Washington's bones with the slavery sign on it, but wouldn't for the can of beans

"

"

I mean I was assuming this was about using a time machine to get him from the height of his influence rather than exhuming his corpse lol

Maybe we should add the latter as another option though haha

"

Also I was kinda salty about regular George Washington rating so well despite being a slave owner so I wanted to see what a more nightmarish unignorable version would rate as haha

@TheAllMemeingEye I mean, maybe, but it still shouldn't be >50%, b/c, uh, Trump being in office will raise racial violence too.

@Najawin fair enough

@TheAllMemeingEye We just gotta give him the clockwork orange anti-racism brainwashing, he'll be fine

bought Ṁ1 George Washington YES

@TiredCliche I haven't heard of this, how does it work?

@TheAllMemeingEye I can't reveal all the treatment (it's proprietary) but it starts with giving him ketamine and listening to Louis Armstrong's "What A Wonderful World"

@TiredCliche tbh if we keep him constantly on ket he probably couldn't do too much damage lol

@TheAllMemeingEye i think he would be reformable, unlike, say, jefferson, whose racial animus formed a core part of his identity

@Najawin

Joe Rogan MIGHT be able

To beat Shaq

But

Depends on who is red and who is blue

Shaq
bought Ṁ13 Shaq NO

shaquille raushan o’neal would not lose to any single living eligible human being for potus.

shaq doesn’t run the world. but he could

Saddam Hussein
bought Ṁ1,500 Saddam Hussein YES

@strutheo This can resolve YES. (Saddam was an option on both of these markets, and you just resolved the other one.)

adding some from this market to the main one also since space is opening up, i'll be sure to resolve both when the poll comes out. might close responses on this one so we all focus there more

I would vote for Trump regardless of who was running against him. Like I did the past 2 elections.

SCP-682 wouldn't be particularly dangerous as President, as long as it's still contained in its vat of acid.

@Anona01a9 Interesting question, would the Secret Service be obligated to help SCP-682 brake out of containment?

@Anona01a9 tbh I've never understood how a vat of acid was ever meant to contain it in the first place, isn't its main ability near-instant shape-shifting adaptations and regeneration?

Presumably as president it could order government forces to try to free it even if they wouldn't be automatically required to

Marlo Stanfield (The Wire)

ooo good one

bought Ṁ10 Saddam Hussein YES

How about Trump now vs Trump from x years ago?

@TheAllMemeingEye Trump now vs Trump from the 2040s

Can't do harm if you're dead (which is also why Washington's bones would get my vote over present-day Trump)

@BrunoParga haha fair enough, hopefully we don't get transhumanist immortality for the rich before he dies lol
