"It's simple," he said. "A simple plan for world domination. The Moon is the key. People need the Moon. So if we threaten to destroy the Moon, everyone in the world will have to do what we say."

This guy was ranting and raving. I sighed, and continued to humor him. "How the hell are you going to destroy the Moon? It's massive. Do you have any idea how massive it is?"

He waved his hands dismissively. "We don't even need all that much destructive power, just enough to produce a credible threat."

"Even if you had a credible threat, people would just track you down and kill you."

He grinned. "No problem, because we'll be living on the Moon."

"How are you going to get there?"

"That's the first question. I'll delegate it to you. Your task is to figure out how to get to the Moon. Joe will figure out how to live on the Moon, while I figure out how to destroy the moon. Once we have all three parts of the plan -- world domination."
