Person Who Will One Day Become Warlord-Ruler Of What Was Once Nebraska Born In Omaha Hospital

Okay, I'm torn; it's not like I want to spend my undead existence in a pink vat miles below sea level dreaming of my own voiceless screams of horror while Child fruitlessly tries to clone me in his skull-shaped Pacific Island headquarters surrounded by mindless minions (some of whom will have such colorful names as The Murder of Crows, The Albatross of Despair, The One Without a Cool Name, look, he's fifteen and plays Magic the Gathering after school; what do you expect?), nor am I entirely comfortable with his plans to create a hybrid human-reptile army (or a cockroach-human hybrid army for radiation survival purposes).

But. I am his mother, and he brings me coffee when I want it. Should I tell him about this Nebraska threat or not?

This is the time to ask WWSCD - what would Sarah Conner do?

I think by keeping him apprised of threats to his complete dominance in overlordiness you can establish yourself as his most trusted advisor/right hand/first lieutenant. Keep the info coming, watch his six, and be assured of a comfy position in the throne room when the rest of the world burns.

yes, exactly. you're his mother and he brings you coffee sound like reason enough, but politically it's also a good move. it would put you in a very good position for the future - and The Onion isn't infallible, so providing Child with key information allows him some years to prepare before this prophesied Warlord-Ruler could counter his efforts

Anyway, it's just good parenting. It teaches planning skills and thinking ahead.

Oh, you should tell him. For one thing, your support will keep the requisite minute part of his psyche unscarred in case he's destined to someday meet The One or Those who will introduce a tiny but dogged, and ultimately triumphant, yearning for something Higher than mere destruction and domination into his blasted heart.

I feel strongly that if it's a choice between some random anonymous Evil Overlord and your son becoming the Evil Overlord, you should support his ambitions. Otherwise, you're just giving him something else to talk to his therapist about.

It's a toss up, isn't it? :P

Look, that kid? Born here in Omaha. No matter what the future version of that reporter knows, he's neglected one small fact: everyone in Nebraska gets sucked into the cult of Nebraska football. That child's ambitions will no doubt be channeled into a position on the defensive line, where he'll terrorize quarterbacks and get so many concussions he'll forget his plans for world domination.

Your kid has nothing to worry about.
