Mom: You're pretty quiet today. What's up?
Evan: Nothing, just thinking.
Mom: It always scares me when you think quietly. I'm worried that you're plotting how to take over the world or something.
Evan: Nah, that's easy. First, you have to force Britain into submission. Then, align yourself with Russia until you gain full control. Once you command their troops, you lead them into the middle East to shore up the fighting and overthrow the government there. And while doing that, annihilate China. That should keep the rest of Asia under control. No one else has enough power to do anything.
I was thinking of something much harder.
