How To Be a Successful Evil Overlord

You know, StumbleUpon is like crack… I've said it before. But, like a good little addict, when I'm feeling blocked, I'll do some stumbling, because at the bare minimum, I always find something that makes me laugh until my abs hurt.

Today, I stumbled across:

How To Be a Successful Evil Overlord

I must admit, I found myself nodding at many of the ideas, such as:

"50: # My main computers will have their own special operating system that will be completely incompatible with standard IBM and Macintosh powerbooks."
[Linux?]

and

"11:# I will be secure in my superiority. Therefore, I will feel no need to prove it by leaving clues in the form of riddles or leaving my weaker enemies alive to show they pose no threat." [Hear *that*, Batman? Word to the wise…]

What this list boils down to is:

Look down the road for problems, and prepare for them.
Listen to your trusted advisors.
Don't give the enemy an opening.

Sounds like good advice, whether or not you decide to become an evil overlord (or a benevolent ruler, lol!!)
