So I wrote a reply to a post and got an apple, then another, then pie! Then more apples and more pie!
Wow, I'm thinking, I got imaginary currency.

Then, THEN I get a mention in the Daily(ish) email leading to even more apples and pie!

More imaginary currency AND fame to boot!

So my question is, having never found myself in this situation before, what do I do now? Should I start a speaking tour? Is it too early for an autobiography? Or should I just stop messing about and let the UN know that I'm available alternate Tuesdays and Thursdays for ambassadorship roles?

Please advise!

How about setting yourself on a mission to earn more apples and pies and things by making more awesome posts that inspire people and educate people and help make the world a better place?

Yes, yes, yes, well if you're going to talk about what work I'll be doing I guess I should have put this in the meaningful work forum...

Maybe you could start a cult? I hear there's good money in that.

I'll second the cult suggestion. I may even drop by once you get it going.

Tis a shame you live in Europe. If you were an American you could consider running for president. I understand that a decent candidate would have a real good chance of winning this coming election. The last poll I read said that 67% of voters weren't happy with any of the current candidates. So with both apples and pie, you bring good credentials to the podium.

Perhaps you can use your apples/pie to pay other users to ghost-write posts for you, and collect even MORE imaginary currency! Leverage that wealth!

This I am liking.
A cult, with a follower! A nomination for potus and a get rich quick scheme!

This shall be the command centre. Wonder if pauls got a space in the volcano...

Did you notice that your new PIE super powers allow you to highlight one thread with PIE (does not cost PIE), so that the ...something computery... ups the priority of that thread and gives it more attention?

Also, gifting PIE also increases the priority of the thread.

I've been reading about that. It's a nice promotion push I guess.
And yes, giving it away is probably the right thing to do. To the forums!
