Trick question- we already live in that world.

What if the military couldn't track Santa Claus, but there was still positive proof of his existence?

Then for the military that would only mean one thing...a body. Congrats, they killed Santa on your if. Maybe that IS why they do that ridiculous "Santa Tracker" every year, to cover up the fact that they fragged him with a Patriot Missile years ago!

What if you COULD not only look into the sun wothout eye damage, but actually peer into the mysteries of the universe with your own eyes?

I'd still wear sunglasses...I'm just cool like that.

What if this was the matrix?

Then the machines already won. Think about it. We're slaves, they re-invent the matrix all over again after every so-called Chosen One empties the algorithm, they make a new Zion so they can re-start everything. I mean, who put all that machinery in, after all? And you want to rely on KEANU FRICKIN' REEVES?! Seriously? But I digress... I'll take the Matrix, as my life isn't so bad. Who cares if I'm a "copper top"? What right do I have to whine and grouse about?

What if children really are the wisest people after our mothers teach us the basics, before she sends us off to school, and we just get dumber on life the more we learn?

Then we'd better shut down the school systems right away and all be kids forever!

What if cars were powered by hamsters running on wheels instead of an internal combustion engine?

Then there would be protesters for hamster emancipation.

What if monkeys were as smart as Curious George?

We'd be seeing a way more curious rise of planet of the apes.

What if pets could talk?

They'd tell us where to shove it we don't stop giving them food that smells like the crap they just ate in the backyard. (A topic near and dear to my heart because a dog at the house we are visiting ate some and then licked my boy on the face a few minutes later...ewwwww...we only realized it because the kitchen started stinking as the dog was panting.)

What if Smurfs actually existed?

Then they'd probably join up with Alf, Slimer and several other cartoon characters and make a crappy (but awesome) D.A.R.E. video. (or maybe I'm the only one who watched that one)

What if there actually were monsters under your bed until you are thirteen?

Then all our parents would have been liars. Wait, ...Santa Claus, Easter Bunny... hmmm

What if college football had a playoff with all conference winners (only) getting the invite?

Then satellite companies would have to broadcast silent movies all the time.


What if the sky caught fire and your nose fell off?

Then, odds are I would be Pinocchio.

What if the earth really was only 6000 years old.

Then proper punctuation would still be an issue with internet-goers.

What if we could see infrared?

We would probably perceive it as red, and call the next longer wavelength "infrared" instead.

What if the Harry Potter series was a historical account?

Then you would be a Muggle, and I would ascend to the throne of The Dark Lord.

What if we all just got along?

Wars would be a lot more boring...

What if there was truly one ring to rule them all?

Then it would probably be worn by the P.O.T.U.S. Maybe it already is...how else could they have passed the Affordable Care Act?

What if wars were fought by our children's teddy bears instead of our children?

I'd have to start buying stock in stuffing.

What if we had never invented cars?

We would have a lot more personal airplanes, balloons, and zepplins flying around.

What if no one actually needed a car?
