A Death Note
I was just wondering, what would you people do if you had your hands on a Death Note?
Are you as ambitious as Light and would try to use it for power? Would you be petty and just erase your enemies? Would you kill the fbi's top 10 most wanted criminal's as a vigilante for justice?
It poses an interesting dilema because a death note doesn't make you invulnerable at all ( it's not like you're goku and no one can kill you ) but it does make you powerful as fuck.
And then there's the fact that although you're probably no Yagami Light, i assume there aren't any L's out there who would get you should you not be monumentally retarded.
Personally, i probably wouldn't have the balls to use it with all the side effects it apparently brings, and my conscious probably wouldn't allow it either.
id change my name to something nobody could think of then id sell it
And then the guy you sold it to gets caught for being retarded and it gets traced back to you
Not to mention the kind of people who would buy it would probably off you instead of paying for it
And just where would you sell it? Ebay?
Yes, i see no plot holes in that brilliant plan of yours
Open up my high school year books and start writing. After knowing it was real I would hand it to my commanding officer so that the US Military could use it to take down all that threaten freedom.
i would burn it. I like everyone else would get drunk with power and start using if for my own selfish reasons. "Oh so my boss skipped me over for the promotion will ill teach him(writes his name down), Oh so my wife is going to take me for everything i got(writes her name down) Oh so the director gave my part to someone else(write his name down)"
So stupid stuff like that will start to happen specially if there where more than 10 all around the world
I'd forfeit the use of the Death Note. I could never bring myself to use it, and having something like that in my possession would just be a burden.
You really have that much confidence in the system?

I would applaud that decision, but absolute power corrupts absolutely, so you never know. Look at Light's case

If in your scenario we just come across a death note ONLY - with nothing else attached - then I'd destroy it.
A death note with nothing else isn't a possibility ( i think... )
And i had forgotten about that factor.
I might keep it, somehow having my memories just erased like that freaks me out
Hmmm ... I wouldn't want to use it, when I die I'll end up in 'Mu' (nothingness). I don't want to go there >_<.
But I'd hang on to it if it was Armoria Jastin's Death Note. Would be cool to have a jeweled skeleton following me around.
