This magical rock will grant any wish you want, but it won’t activate until one week from now and the government wants it and knows you have it, what’s your strategy?

  1. Serious answer: have someone snail mail it and several other identical packages with replica, fake rocks, to places across the country. Pick relatively random places, and then road trip to what ever place they sent the real rock. Gotta go old school for the trip, though. No GPS or cell phones, so we have to use maps. Still, should take about a week for it to arrive wherever it’s going and about a week to travel there.

  2. Swap it for a rock in my garden, then go on the run. When they eventually catch me they’ll think they’ve got the rock! And I’ll pretend to be really sad and stuff. Then I will get home and the real rock will be all mine!

  3. Go to where my dad grew up and hide in a pub.

    The government hasnt entered that town in years. Locals would strip a tank and attack gov forces whilst demanding thatchers body in exchange for the rock. Once they would get the body they would demand more and not hand the rock.

  4. Fucking throw it in the ocean. Not like they’re gonna search every rock. Also never specified I have to have it in order for it to activate so pebble skipping it goes

  5. First, I would wish on the rock that they would forget all about the rock. Then I would paint the rock as garishly as I can. Stick a few glittery stickers all over and write, “I LOVE U!” on it in bright neon crayon. Make it look like a kindergartner’s art project. Then plop it on a pile of paper like a paperweight in my office. Prop up some photos of my kid around it along with some of his drawings.

    Then find as many regular rocks as I can and stash them around everywhere. Hide them in obscure places.

    That way when the government arrives they aren’t going to look at the paperweight that is out in the open and think, “Oh, that must be the magic rock.” Instead, they are going to think, “That’s her kid’s present to her.” And will go looking for hidden rocks because who would leave the a magical rock out in the open like that? As they find more and more rocks, they will take them all and go away, leaving me behind with the real rock. Hopefully, by the time they realized they had been had my wish will be activated and they will forget all about the rock. Thus, leaving me alone with my magic rock.

  6. Depends on which department of the government. CIA might make it to me in a week, most of the others wouldn’t even have the memo I was a target until next week.
