If you could be Jack Reacher for a day what would you want to do ?

If you could be Tom Cruise's Jack Reacher character for a day or longer, what would you most want to do and get up to and why, in either real life and/or in the film world ?

Change my name to something less homoerotic, like Les Homoerotic.

Jack Reacher the book character, or the movie one? If the latter, do people notice our uncanny resemblance to Tom Cruise? Or do people remember Risky Business as the one about that 6-foot-6 teen who looks like a gorilla?

In other words: how has this thread not been Guy Gardener'ed yet?

^That was a pretty good attempt at a Guy impression, if lacking in his unique surreality.

Hang around a Costco and eat free samples. Tune all their TVs to the same channel, then tune them all to different channels.

Judging from the movie he lives off of his pension. Women jump into bed with him because he is who he is. He doesn't need to flash money to get their attention. He basically just catches the news every now and then and if something gains his interest he investigates. If he needs to shoot something he is a military champion rifle shot, without shooting thousands of rounds a week. He can drive like a Secret Service Presidential driver, even if he doesn't actually own a car and drive. He fights like Bruce Lee, although he wanders and does not train a 50 year old body. Friends, zero, family zero.

So I guess I would check out the news to see if an ex foe did something bad so I can try to attend the execution.
