If you had a Death Note, who would you kill and why?

For those who don't know, Death Notes are fictional notebooks. If you know someone's name and face, you can write their name, manner, and time of death in a Death Note and it will come true.

Also, I'd put Michael M down twice.

There can only be one.

Maybe everyone on the leaderboard above me, but I'd probably run out of space.

A guy my grandma used to work with was just arrested on 123 counts of kiddie porn, some of it violent. He worked for a school district (in IT, but whatever). Not a bad place to start. After that, some of the work I do is related to hospice care and I think a Death Note would be perfect for that.

Would you let governments know you had this power?

You do realize you would be exactly the same type of govt that you would coerce. You would be everything you espouse to hate essentially. Replacing one tyrannical sht hole govt for another.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

Couldn't do it, for 2 reasons. 1, i believe taking out vengeance on someone in such a manner is unhealthy and can make one trigger happy, which was shown pretty clearly in the series. 2 no human is prepared in any sort for god like powers.
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

If I abondoned all my values I would probably start killing off lots of people on tumblr, social justice warriors and the such. I'm looking at you Zoe Quinn and Anita Sakesian.

Hmm. Frankly, I think the power would get to me pretty quickly. One of the big things about the series, though, is that, to write in a way that simulates what a very instrumentally rational person would do, you actually have to be about as intelligent (although you do have the luxury of being able to write in such a way that events turn out exactly as you'd want them to), or it comes off as looking unbelievably Mary-Sue-ish or, in the other case, far below what you'd expect from a genius-level mind.

I'd like to think I'd make fewer mistakes, e.g., not having so many people die in the vanilla heart attack fashion. If you've got so much time to yourself to write out massive lists of names, you've presumably also got time to write in a more creative death, a possibility severely underutilized by Light, and a possibility which would have greatly increased his ability to evade detection. His problem was that, wanting to become "God", he wanted people to know that there was someone out there judging. For someone like myself, with far less lofty goals, it would make considerably more sense to use the Note just to get people inconspicuously out of my way.

It would be pretty easy, for example, to run in a local/state election, get to a point where myself and one other person are the only serious candidates, and have the other person die from something embarrassing (e.g., drug overdose). That both wins me the election and, because of the contrast effect, gives me considerably more perceived ethical credibility; I could pull a similar move for an attractive woman--write in a death for the boyfriend that involves cheating. You've got grief at the death just as well as anger for the cheating, if you're the kind of person inclined to take advantage of someone's emotions. I'm not terribly interested in a crusade for justice, though--however well-intentioned I might start out, stories like these almost always end up with a deranged protagonist murdering anyone who proves more than a slight inconvenience.

I find myself also debating whether I'd make the deal for the Shinigami eyes. My brain hasn't yet returned a definitive answer, although I'm unfortunately leaning toward No, only because of the whole "fear of nearer death" thing.

First of all, I admit I'd be one of the few DDO people capable of being killed by it.

As for who I would kill.
Todd Akin, 9/8/15 16:20 "Complications of male pregnancy during press conference. Last words are 'I got pregnant, so it wasn't rape.'"

Pretty much any member of the Westboro Baptist Church... "Drinks from bowl of kool-aid laced with rat poison, then bleeds out anus during spontaneous gay orgy with other members during protest at funeral" ... Adding on to at least one member "Posts on Facebook 'Our sins will send angels to kill you all, just like on 9/11' before literally choking to death on a dick."
