I would like to think I would create something for the greater good but if I was able to do one thing it would probably be a way to make myself immortal and also stop aging. I can tell right now that it would be terrible.

One way has me being the only human capable of it meaning I have to watch my loved ones all die before me and avoid being "examined" to see if others can duplicate it. Avoiding all that, I would eventually become the equivalent of a Homo Habilis in the modern world due to evolution. If everyone becomes immortal, overpopulation leads to shortage of supplies and space which leads to war and death.

You should read this book

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

Fortunately, dealing with immortality isn't as big of a deal as everyone makes it out to be. If you're sick of living and you've got DBZ's Cell's level of regeneration, just make like the T-1000 in Terminator 2 and find a vat of molten steel to chuck yourself into and you should be fine (and dead, mostly dead). Alternatively, freeze yourself. And if you thaw out, then its time to find another habitable planet.

And remember, if life gives you immortal lemons, then you'll have infinite lemonade.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I'd create a program that endlessly posts videogame news links in appropriate threads on RPGfan and name it after something from Norse mythology

You mean an RSS feed? We have those already.

Ha! Joke's on you. I'd make a harem of anime waifus and those are already personality-less, wish-fulling, mono-trait, doormats who are all secretly dirty whores and sluts inside (they just need you to show them).

Creepiness aside, an addendum to my previous post on immorality is that if you're going to make people immortal, for the love of god, make sure you either include eternal youth or the ability to pick and choose your appearance because like hell would anyone want to be immortal and constantly aging (imagine being stuck in one of those hospital beds tied down by life support forever).

Well good luck in making enough money to support your harem while still having enough time in the day to do anything with them. :p

Edit: Also be careful on your selections otherwise you might end up with a School Days ending.
