Google Plus Answers, Public Post:

  Valkyrie Page  I believe the generally accepted practice is to blame a) worthless minions; b) James Bond; c) Acme Corporation; or d) those meddling kids.

  Elizabeth Einspanier  Pinky.

  dPHender son  Are you thinking what I’m thinking,+Elizabeth Einspanier ?

  Mince Walsh  Quantum physics wasn’t cooperating.

  Carl Rauscher  a.  My plan wasn’t evil, and  b.  It didn’t fail — this apparent setback was part of my BIGGER plan, which will become evident as events continue to unfold.

  David Foster  You think it failed?…. such naivety, but good. You are safer thinking that.

Google Plus, SpecFic Writers Community:

  Mark Means  Those “meddling kids”!

  Mz Maau  Red Herring!

  Steven Radecki  Microsoft. If the computers hadn’t blue-screened during the final countdown . . .

  Zachary Besterfield  Who said it was an evil plot? I’ll bet “They” said I was crazy as well. Well I’m not crazy! “They” are the crazy ones! CRAZY I SAY!

  B. Drew Collier  Alcoa.

Google Plus, Science Fiction Community:

  Rich Canino  Those meddling kids.

  Sarah King  My dimwitted assistant who I knew I should have fired long ago. Alas, he knew too many of my secrets and ends up being a very emotional connection to a past I lost.

  Nicola Smith  Idealistic fools who did not realize that life under my rule would be so much better than the sad, wretched existence they endure now.

  Dan G.  Obamacare. Lol

 Michael Davis  Thor

  Michael Davis  Actually I agree with +Nicola Smith I’ve always said the world would be so much better if everyone just did whatever I said.

  Nicola Smith  We should discuss this further, +Michael Davis 😀

  Ergodic Mage  The only explanation could be Ancient Aliens  

  Doug Grayson  …I blame Canada.

  Raja Swaminathan  Myself. Like an idiot I wasted time gloating over my plot to the hero instead of finishing him off, thereby giving his friends time to help rescue him.

  Burt Crépeault  Damn dodgy humans, with their fat fingers and lucky guesses, always finding cracks in the best of plans. Oh, but next time, next time… Mwahahahaha!

  Rich Canino  No time for blame. I have to prepare for tomorrow night  

  Anglo Phony  Pinky

  AmyBeth Inverness  +Raja Swaminathan If I had a nickel for every time… ~sigh~

  Raja Swaminathan  +AmyBeth Inverness  This page should be mandatory reading for all sci-fi/fantasy script writers! –  Check out #6. http://eviloverlord.com/lists/overlord.html

  Michael Davis  +Raja Swaminathan this is brilliant. I had to pause at #96 because trying to calculate the number of TV shows and movies that would be changed if that were implemented made me dizzy.

  Billy Couvillion  It only appears to have been foiled. I can’t believe you all fell for that!

  Gustavo Campanelli  Sorry, my plots are not Evil. They are for the GREATER GOOD. Who are you working for?

  Paul Haigh  I’m not overly concerned, I will iron out the wrinkles in the next universe, I just need to commit quantum suicide.

  David Hill  Obama… 😛
