What would you do with a Death Note like the one in the anime by the same name?

For the ones who don't know what a death note is, it's a little notebook in which if you write the name of a person and have his/her face in your mind, you could specify the way of death of that person or else in 40 seconds death from a heart attack will occur. If I had one of those I guess I would be using it for myself and not try to manipulate the world with it as Raito does :)

honestly i'm not sure, but he did have the right idea...i just would have gone about it in a different way. i would try to make each seem like an accident and of course space out my killings of the most wanted. and also make sure that i was never caught. the hardest thing of course would be to hide it. i'd probably find a way though to make sure no one ever picks it up.

Yes, I agree with you, Raito uses it too often but he wanted that to happen, so that people know that someone is killing the inmates. He could easily kill them in a different way. I also think that it is very hard to keep something like that out of other people's reach :)

but now he has this power/ego trip thing and i think he's going to get caught eventually. i don't know...just watching it i feel that he could have done other things to not get caught. i wouldn't want to be recognized that much for doing it. but then again...he's male and they're always full of themselves ....lol

Yes, I too think that many situations could be avoided, but I respect his way of thinking, in the end, it always turns to have been the best way :)

i would take it and see if it works by writing down one of my old teachers name because i hated her and she was mean and rude! but then after that, i would stop and go on living life like i did nothing wrong. but then again, i might also do what Raito did to his victims...but i'd be scared if i ever got caught....

To be honest, I think I would hide it from the world and make sure it is never used. I believe that it's dangerous for all people and the one who is using it.

I think it would be rather hard to hide it for long. Sooner or later someone will find it, and use it... Maybe you could use it in a more silent way :)
