Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Time Bandits (1981)

Evil Genius: When I have the map, I will be free, 
and the world will be different, because I have understanding. 
Minion: Uh, understanding of what, Master? 
Evil Genius: Digital watches. And soon I shall have understanding of video cassette recorders and car telephones. And when I have understanding of them, I shall have understanding of computers. And when I have understanding of computers, I shall be the Supreme Being! God isn't interested in technology. He knows nothing of the potential of the microchip or the silicon revolution. Look how He spends His time! Forty-three species of parrots! Nipples for men! 
Robert: Slugs. 
Evil Genius: Slugs! He created slugs. They can't hear! They can't speak! They can't operate machinery! I mean, are we not in the hands of a lunatic?... If I were creating a world, I wouldn't mess about with butterflies and daffodils. I would have started with lasers, eight o'clock, day one!

Time Bandits was my favorite film growing up. I had a daddy fixation on Sean Connery in that movie.

And instead of becoming Supreme Being, he became Chancellor of the Klingon Empire. Close enough, even kept the same style outfit.
