The 'What-If?' Game

By Lamia Fahim

1.  What if, fish could fly and birds could swim?
     A lame answer to "what's up?"  would be "water". 

2.  What if, a rainbow was made up of another color called "Nymphette"?                                                                                   
     The seven basic colors would have to be welcoming to make room for the eighth.

3.  What if, there actually is a Hogwarts?
     I'd ditch Lyceum and transfer.

4.  What if, the earth started revolving the other way round? Would people start growing younger instead of older?
     The movie "The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button" would be an epic fail and Brad Pitt would (finally) go out of business.

5.  What if, someone was born with gills?
     Would they choose to live underwater or on earth?
     They'd pick underwater, so that sea-creatures could finally protest about water pollution and their rights,
     and form a Political Water Board.

6.  What if, there was no sin anymore? What would happen to hell?
     It would freeze over.

7.  What if, the world was actually black and white for a day?
     Mimes would finally be recognized and appreciated.

8.  What if, there were blue-colored animals?
     Then the term "earthy" would be in reference to the color blue.

9.  What if, people were yellow-colored?
     What would happen to jaundice?
     And would "The Simpsons" still be as popular as it is now?
     Jaundice would mean turning peach-colored.
     The Simpsons would fit in, but be tedious.

10. What if, N.A.S.A. discovered another planet on which life-forms existed?
      Would people move?

      Hell yes, I would. The Earth's being ravaged anyways.

11. What if, gravity had a switch, and could be turned off and on?
      Then we would literally be able to "fly on over".

12. What if, invisibility, for people, existed?
      Boys would have too much fun and the word "deception" would take on a whole new meaning.
