Questions for Dictator Jimmy
Question from Krista: I've got a question! Alright, Dictator Jimmy, would you hug me back if I were to let you annihilate me? =D
DICTATOR JIMMY: . . . Come and find out...
Question from Krista: Okay, Dictator Jimmy... does your real side ever break through the effects of the Megalomanium?
DICTATOR JIMMY: No.
**three way exchange of glances**
Question from Megan: Why exactly do you feel the need to control the known universe and absolutely destroy the bodies, minds and spirits of all who oppose you?
DICTATOR JIMMY: In a physiological sense, power is a drug...a very addicting one. The Megalomanium acts by heightening your body's biochemical response to the thrill of Power. I literally cannot function without it.
Question from andrea: Dictator Jimmy:
1) What did you feel when you finally deleted everyone and when you were about to go, Aurora said she saw you like if you were fighting the megalomanium, were you?
2) What were you thinking in those moments?
3) Did you feel bad for leaving Aurora there by herself?
4) Do you regret that decision?
5) What did you feel when you captured Aurora?
6) What did you feel when she escaped?
7) If you are so powerful, why haven’t you fought the resistance movement or whatever it's called?
8) What would you do if you had Aurora in front of you right now?
9) If you knew you were going to be sprayed with the megalomanium, would you have ever invented it? Or do you love being an evil dictator?
10) Do you have (or would like to have or ever had) a wall full of Aurora's pictures and a record of where she's been and all that stuff as she has one of you in her room (oops! you didn't heard it from me...)
11) And finally will you ever forgive me for asking so many questions?
1) I don't remember anything about fighting the Megalomanium back on Earth. Aurora was obviously seeing what she wanted to see.
2) I was thinking about what my next move would be.
4) It doesn't matter.
5) I don't squander my energy feeling anything.
6) You believe she escaped? Please, use what little intelligence you have. She never would have gotten away had I not let her.
7) I have fought them, but in all honesty, they bore me. The majority of them don't even put up enough of a fight to be worth my time.
8) It depends on the circumstance.
9) I don't really love anything, except power. I guess my old self would have said that no, he wished he never made the Megalomanium. But I have come to realize its true benefit.
10) I have vast computers full of data on every person I've ever met, Aurora included. So yes, in a manner of speaking.
11) My absolute limit is 10 questions. Enough wasting my time.
Question from loopin: I HAVE A QUESTION!!!!! Well, TWO questions actually....Dictator Jimmy, do you have any allies or accomplices of any kind? How about Future Carl? And when you do take over the galaxy and demand total obedience, what will you ask the people to do? Build monuments or something?
DICTATOR JIMMY: I would not exactly call him an accomplice, but I certainly can't dismiss the role Carl has played during the past 10 years. He's loyal...mostly. From time to time I have to remind him who makes the rules.
As for the second question, I don't want monuments. That's pointless. I want total and complete power...influence over the life of every galactic inhabitant. I want to play God on a universal scale. I've already made notable strides toward this goal, of course...like commissioning English as the galactic language, setting up an entirely new economic system, and creating inventions to solve just about any problem imaginable...or to destroy just about any enemy imaginable. But it won't stop there...even if I control the entire universe. I'll invent something to take me to another one.
Question from gamergirlv: Dictator Jimmy, in what way do you plan on killing everyone here on IDOJ whose questions have annoyed you?
DICTATOR JIMMY: Finally, a question I don't mind answering. I normally wouldn't take the time to bother with people as pathetic as you, but several of you have managed to...command my attention. Congratulations.
I think I'd pick something slow...perhaps I'd jettison you into space one by one, so you can slowly watch each other suffocate while the blood boils inside your veins.
Question from Carrie: DJ: Where do you get your haircuts?
DICTATOR JIMMY: I built a robotic barber to cut my hair. It doubles as a lamp, footstool, cleaning bot, and automatic machine gun.
Question from andrea: DJ: What do you do in your spare time, or if you don't have any time to spare, what do you do on a usual day?
DICTATOR JIMMY: When I'm not out on conquests (which is happening more and more frequently, as I have fully automated ships, weapons, and robotic agents that do it for me now), I spend a lot of time in the lab. I make it my goal to build a better mousetrap, so to speak. If it hasn't been invented yet, I invent it. If it has been invented, then I improve upon it. Sometimes I create new weapons (like my suit, for example) or design new security devices for my fortress; other times I run all sorts of...interesting experiments.
Question from Bekboo: If I sprayed myself with Megalomanium, would you marry me?
DICTATOR JIMMY: No, I'd kill you.
Question from Amanda: Hey DJ I have a question, are you ever lonely? And miss your old friends? (especially Cindy ;-) )
JIMMY: I don't know about lonely...more
like bored. Yes, I get bored from time to time and wish I had someone
Question from Alex: Are you trying to fight against the Megolamanium? Do you have nightmares about... the stress?
DICTATOR JIMMY: Not that I’m aware of.
Question from Bekboo: DJ: Do you use the love potion to blackmail people?
DICTATOR JIMMY: Why would I? I have more powerful ways to compel people to do what I want. Moreover, I destroyed the love potion long ago, to prevent myself or someone close to me from coming in contact with it by accident.
Question from Cindyfan7: Do you ever wonder what it could've been like had you not turned evil and into a jerk?
DICTATOR JIMMY: I probably would have gone right on being a naive and clueless genius concerned mainly with helping others. Perhaps I would have saved the human race a few more times. Nothing too interesting.
Question from Amanda: DJ, how come you didn't kill Aurora when you had the chance? Was it your past feelings for her stopping you? Or was it you wanted her to suffer for it all?
DICTATOR JIMMY: Well, the first time - back on Earth - I let her live because I wanted her to suffer. Suffer more than anyone else. Those who had been deleted no longer had any worries, so their suffering was at an end, and Sheen, Carl, and Libby, however much they missed Earth and their families, would have each other. But Cindy...Cindy...I wanted her to feel so alone and hopeless that death would seem like a welcome alternative in comparison.
second time, 3 years ago when I captured her,
the situation was different. Killing her seemed like a senseless waste
entertaining game piece. She put up such an impressive struggle that I
found myself challenged...something that is rare nowadays. After all,
everyday that I come across an opponent who actually makes things
So I let her live. I know it's only a matter of time before she comes
face me again. Then I will kill her.
Question from andrea: don't u think that after 3 years it would be harder to fight Aurora? don't u think she might have more power than u expect? of course u'll play on her weaknesses, but u have weaknesses too! don't u think she might have learned a lot more than u imagine? why are u so confident? u shouldn't underestimate ur opponent...I don't know if u are confident enough to say it, but remember that "confidence is ignorance, if you are feeling cocky, it's because there's something you don't know".
DICTATOR JIMMY: A point well made, I concede. Indeed, I will never make the mistake of underestimating Aurora. She knows far more about me than most people, which makes her my most dangerous opponent. She is well versed in combat and has a talent for improvising. Her skill as a pilot is unmatched, and while she's certainly not a genius, she's no ordinary woman.
However, Aurora has several things holding her back. Her ties to the past are still strong; she cannot view the situation objectively, and therefore acts according to her emotions and instinct. As long as she sees me as the person she used to know, she will never be able to kill me. Additionally, I have the upper hand both in technology and location - she will have to come to me and face me in my stronghold.
I am not saying that it is impossible for her to win. It is merely astronomically unlikely, statistically speaking. Still, though I don't know why, I have a strange premonition regarding Aurora. For better or for worse, I am certain that the next time we meet will be our final battle.
Question from Miss Punk: So do you ever get sad about things you have done?
DICTATOR JIMMY: Occasionally I feel regret, but it's merely a passing trifle.
Question from loopin: Any way, I gots anotha' question: DJ, have you ever wished for "Female companionship"? Like a queen or something?
Side note from Mara: OK, I'm really glad I re-read your note, because when I first saw your question, 'Have you ever wished for "female companionship?"' I thought you meant...erm, how shall I say this politely...PAID female companionship. I was all like *blink* "did loopin REALLY just ask that question?? Well, OK...
I was all set to answer, then I read the rest of the question and I was like "Oooh! So THAT's what she meant!" LOL. It was a near disaster. Anyway....
JIMMY: Well, as you may imagine there are a
conspicuous lack of human females. I have only myself to blame for
this, as my
11 year old self did not think ahead to the time when I might be
women. I could probably create a companion if I tried...I have the
genome sequenced, after all...but that would be boring, not to mention
dangerous. I cannot let someone get that close to me, or they would
opportunity to strike when my defenses were down. So no, for the time
will keep my distance from women.
Question from Miss Punk: So you're afraid that if a woman came to power with you, she could knock you down or take control?
DICTATOR JIMMY: Not afraid, no. I am just taking the necessary precautions, as I have always done. Whatever gratification a woman would provide wouldn't be worth the risk. Women...humans in general for that matter...are unreliable and unpredictable. The only people you can trust are your enemies, because you already know their intent.
Question from Amanda: Dictator Jimmy, by some weird twist of fate, that Aurora was on your side, would you consider her as your female companion?
DICTATOR JIMMY: I thought I made clear the fact that I cannot have a female companion. Even if, for some inexplicable reason, Aurora were on my side, it would not change things. Rather, it would make her all the more dangerous. Aurora and I could never be together. It would be like uniting gunpowder and flame. Both would be consumed and destroyed.
Question from Amanda: DJ: Was that awkward to answer that last question by any chance? Cause it was awkward to ASK…Ah. Honesty would be appreciated, but you wouldn't really care so can you be honest anyways?
DICTATOR JIMMY: Yes, I suppose it was awkward. I am not accustomed to having to answer strange questions posed by clearly inferior individuals.
Question from loopin: Dictator Jimmy, How come you cut your hair??? I miss the old wippy-dip hair do!
DICTATOR JIMMY: I outgrew it.
Question from PinkPrincess: Who do u think should die in TOSOT?
DICTATOR JIMMY: I don't really care who dies. But I will kill anyone who gets in my way, unless they are of better use to me alive.
Question from andrea: Hypothetically speaking, if ur younger self managed to do an antidote for the megalomanium, and there are some dreadful side effects, which would u prefer it would be coma for an extremely long period of time or death?
DICTATOR JIMMY: That is a very peculiar hypothetical question. I suppose being in a coma is preferable to death, but if I would only awaken to find myself out of control and tormented, than death might be a better alternative. I'd be very interested to find out what comes after this life. There may be other opportunities awaiting me there.
Question from Kate: Do you ever get lonely? Why haven't you destroyed the resistance movement yet? If you were given the chance, would you kill Aurora?
DICTATOR JIMMY: Lonely? Not in particular. I have more than enough to keep me occupied. From time to time, I suppose, I crave some intelligent conversation.
In regards to your second question, why should I squander my time and energy hunting down rebels spread across several galaxies? No, I am waiting for them to come to me. They will very soon attempt a large-scale attack, and when they do, I will destroy them all at once.
forget that I have, on several occasions, had
the chance to kill Aurora. In the end, one of us will have to die. She
rest until she has killed me or been killed by me...we shall see which
events turn. Her death would be somewhat regrettable, I'll admit. She's
only opponent who stands even a remote chance of defeating me, and
I'll be hard pressed to find a challenge anywhere.
Question from Pigquet3: How many planets
have you conquered? How many galaxies?
JIMMY: I currently have operatives working within the 3 largest
galaxies in the local group: the Milky Way, the Andromeda Galaxy, and
the Triangulum Galaxy. This amounts to some 600 billion stars and half
as many planets, only about 10% of which are habitable - so 30 million
worlds. Naturally I have only conquered a few hundred thousand of
these, and only a few thousand personally.
My methodology is simple. I ignore those worlds which do not contain intelligent or at least reasonably intelligent life. Planets that pose a greater threat than benefit are exterminated. Those that have potential uses are conquered and a portion of their resources enters into my possession. This in turn fuels further conquest.
At this point the war essentially wages itself. When I first began, I personally wiped out or subjugated worlds - but now I have amassed sufficient robotic and mercenary forces to do the dirty work for me. Meanwhile, galactic society becomes more fragmented by the day, leading to new conflicts and continuing warfare. In a sense, I have created something on a scale far grander than myself. Ultimately, though, only the slightest manipulation on my part can bring me anything I desire and at the same time have far-reaching and life-changing consequences for countless people. That is power.
Question from Sunnstar:
1. Do you remember anything about your life before you were Megolomaniumed? (Probably yes but just wondering)
2. If you could have one wish, what would it be?
3. Please define "friends" and "trust," you know, as an evil dicator and stuff.
DICTATOR JIMMY: Of course I do...although it
certainly feels like something from a distant dream.
Where's the satisfaction in wishing? I prefer to go out and make things happen. You can't simply be handed something without having to work for it.
The definition of "friends" and "trust" is hazy at best. As someone with many enemies, neither of these words signifies a beneficial circumstance.
In my old life, I suppose I would have said that friends are the people you can count on in the most difficult circumstances. But the same no longer applies. Carl only remains my "friend" because he is weak-minded, and I know for a fact that Sheen would kill me if he were given the opportunity. Likewise, Aurora has made it her mission in life to hunt me down.
So you see, the people who you once counted as your friends may not remain as such once circumstances change. Therefore it is better to only count on yourself.
from Amanda: Oookay,I have a totally serious question. So,
DON'T LAUGH. By some odd twist, Aurora was NOT against you, but just an
innocent pedestrian as any other alien, would you force her into being
one of your minions? She still DOES know karate, and you are know what
she's capable of, so, do you ever wonder if she hadn't joined the
DICTATOR JIMMY: Aurora, an innocent pedestrian? I will admit, that almost made me laugh. Aurora and innocence are hardly compatible concepts.
If she were not a member of the resistance, but instead an independent criminal, then I would have killed her immediately. As she is now, she is predictable. Were she not pitted against me, she would not be.
I suppose you mean how would I react to Aurora if she wasn't Cindy - that is, if I had not known her from childhood. In that case, I suppose I'd have no cause to pay attention to her at all.
from Andrea: How do you feel when all the thing u do and
everything you are is controlled by a teenage girl with a great
from Amanda: DJ, any regrets about deleting your own parents?
Ever wish you HADN'T done that?
Question from Amanda: DJ: Do you think you're atractive, or do you know if you've had time to think about it?Answer:
Question from Sunny: Have you ever regretted kidnapping FC and FS, who used to be your best friends, at all?Answer:
Do you really have a long-term strategy or are you just making
it up as you go along? What do you plan to do if you really DO take
over the galaxy (ie, beat Aurora and co. in the war?)
Question from Tiffany: DJ, why did you kiss Aurora when you had her captured? :]]Answer:
from Noemi: Noemi--Well I have a question for DJ...don't
know if it's been asked before ***blinks and quivers a bit as she
watches the Dictator *** Well u mentioned about all this
conquering issues u're doing and so...I wanted to know what's the point
of so much effort from you if ...you know....u are human after all and
well how old ru now 21??...
I mean u're not gonna live forever to keep with any plans u have till now, besides there's no one....mmm well I think there's no one who will like to continue with what u've done so far...**silence**
from Amanda: How long did it take you to find out "Cindy" was
alive? And what was your reaction/thoughts?
from Noemi: 1.- Which is in your opinion the major risk that
you have taken till now without thinking on it?
2.- Have u taken decision on impulse??when and in what situation?
3.- U seem to be sorta flawless to others and that u don't let anybody catch u off-guard due to ur plannin coz u're thinkin on everythin....u're a genius after all. Anyway... till now has someone been exception to this perception?
4.- Which you think that is your major weakness? (u're a man after all...)
5.- Why u keep the hypno-ray and the wormhole generator? (don't ask me how I know it)
6.- U hv the hypno-ray so.... how come u didn't use it on Aurora when u captured her?? She could have done anything that u wanted
7.- I know sometimes u do regret the decisions u've taken as a dictator... then, if this happens why to live on contradiction with yourself?
8.- Which is your mayor fear?
9.- Last one[whispers]: Did u really kissed Aurora as a way to defy her or u did it on purpose coz u wanted???? Come on the truth....or both? u said once u wanted to maintain distance from women to not let 'em get u defenseless...
Answer:DJ: I am fairly certain that it is impossible to stop cell degradation indefinitely...however, I may be able to greatly extend my lifespan if I can find a way to slow the aging process. I am currently working on research related to that goal.
Answer:DJ: I don't need my name to sound menacing. Allow me to put it to you this way: if I were to eradicate every member of your family before your very eyes, would you care even in the slightest what my name was?
Answer:DJ: You are correct, I did have the coordinates...and from those coordinates I was able to ascertain that Sheen had accidentally sent Libby thousands of miles off course. She was stranded by herself, without supplies of any kind, in the middle of the Asian Highlands. Why would I waste time going after her? She was clearly not going to obey me, and neither was Sheen. It was better to simply tell him his mistake, and leave him to dwell on the likely outcome.
Answer:DJ: The emotion rooms work by altering patterns of conscious thought through a variety of mechanisms including: Theta, Alpha, and Gamma brainwave modification, auditory, respiratory, and visual sensory stimuli, subliminal messaging, and hallucinogenics.
Answer:DJ: If a hydrogen bomb detonated 5 feet away from me, my suit's healing feature would be rendered useless. But short of complete bodily disintegration, it can heal practically any wound, fatal or not. The only way the restorative powers would fail outright is if I were in a coma or if I willed them to do so. It's an "opt out" type of feature, if you will.
DJ: I would also like to point out that it is a logical fallacy to assume that I would want an heir simply because I am mortal. True, I will take every measure possible to extend my lifespan, but I do not care one iota what happens to the universe when and if I die. I am not building some sort of empire for posterity. There is no ideology behind my actions that I would want continued in my absence.
I have no illusions about what I'm doing or desire to extend my power beyond my individual lifetime. Any such a desire would no doubt lead to grievous errors in judgment.
Question from Mystic: DJ: What is your favorite form of torture?Answer:
So this is kind of a layered question for DJ. I'm assuming that
incident was after the episodes involving Jimmy's clones, including the
episode "The Trouble with Clones" in which Jimmy's evil clone gets
locked in the Dark Matter Dimension. Did you ever give any though about
tracking down your evil clone and taking over the Dark Matter
Dimension? And.... If he reappeared in your universe, what would you do
MARA: Actually, The Trouble with Clones happened after The Tomorrow Boys, so DJ wouldn't know about the dark matter universe. I will ask him about his evil clone, though. Hold on. *ahem* Oh DJaaaaaaaaaaaay!!
MARA: Sup bro. Gotta Q for ya: what happened with your evil clone, yo?
DJ: Ignoring your painfully poor imitation of ghetto speak, I assume he was deleted along with the rest of Earth's inhabitants. At any rate, I never saw or heard from him again. I sincerely doubt he'd be any competition for me in my present state, so if he re-appeared now, I would simply get rid of him. Now if you will excuse me, I am running a series of experiments with my new 'Obliteray'.
MARA: As in, Obliterate + ray?
DJ: That's correct.
MARA: God, even as an evil genius, you still can't come up with good names for your inventions, can you? Sheesh. Zero creativity.
DJ: You will be less inclined to scoff when I use the aforementioned item to kill everyone you know and care about.
MARA: Keep it up, buddy, and I'll be forced to make you weep and confess your love for puppies, cupcakes, and frilly dresses in the next chapter. Remember that I am the author, and I control you all. So HA. Just...HA! Now f*ck off, I'm going on Deviantart.
What would you have done with the alternate-universe Jimmy had
you encountered him before you got dosed with the antidote to the
megalomanium? Would you have tried to win him over, tested stuff on
him, let him go, killed him?
Answer:DJ: I would certainly begin with everyone on this infernal board...
Answer:DICTATOR JIMMY: I'm done answering questions now. I have better things to do. **walks out**
