Being in a scenario where you’re thinking, ‘I can’t do what I want to do due to the financial burden that comes with some of it,’ makes you think, ‘Well, I could go and do an after-dinner speech every night.’ I’d probably earn more than I could in track-and-field. But that’s a dangerous scenario to get yourself into.
A good scenario doesn’t make a good science fiction story – but it’s a setting within which a good science fiction story might be told.
In the ideal scenario, consultants work for a board, and they’re helping the board check on certain aspects of management. Their work is made public and transparent.
My experience is that if the military didn’t want to use force and was confronted with a president that did, the military would come back with what I would call the ‘bomb Moscow‘ scenario. They would say it had to be done with conditions that were so extreme, you obviously wouldn’t do it.
If I wanted to develop a scenario to destroy America, I would do what the Republicans are doing. Take the brightest and best young black men off the streets, put them in jail, make them meaner than hell for 8 or 10 years and then turn them lose in a society where there are plenty of guns for them to play with.
You’re always going to write and draw inspiration from things that you’re feeling, things that you’ve felt. It’s kind of impossible not to unless you’re writing a song and there’s an exact scenario that you’re trying to write a song for.

If I would need to make a prediction I still believe Kaplan’s scenario is very plausible.

Someone once said that history has more imagination than all the scenario writers in the Pentagon, and we have a lot of scenario writers here. No one ever wrote a scenario for commercial airliners crashing into the World Trade Center.
My crime novels are highly structured. I never start out with a dead body. I start with an impossible scenario. Opening questions should be mysterious, weird, intriguing, and contain the seeds of the solution. The structure has to be meticulous – I’m a structure freak.
Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kris Humphries famously lasted 72 days, and was reported in the tabloids as being all about the big bucks paid by magazines for the bridal photos: it is a spectacle of a bride-to-be as entrepreneur, not as romantic heroine; the groom, in this scenario, is nothing but a prop.
Every actor prepares a scene in their own way. For me, it’s about understanding the scenario, the room I’m going to be working in, the obstacles in and around the frame, etc.
Every time I thought I’ve seen every possible scenario, something else comes up. You just have to be prepared at every level.
It would be normal for anybody running a high-profile, politically controversial operation in China to anticipate worst-case scenario, and to do everything possible to guard against them.
The far more likely Trump scenario is this: Chinese leaders realize they no longer have a weak leader in the White House; China ceases its unfair trade practices. America’s massive trade deficit with China comes peacefully and prosperously back into balance, and both the U.S. and Chinese economies benefit from trade.
I can’t speak for everyone, but I know that I definitely don’t want to be a consistent plastic surgery, cosmetic kind of scenario. I don’t like going to the hospital. I don’t want to put myself through pain. So I’m very limited; I know what I need, and then I call it a day.
Autonomous driving provides a scenario where AI can deliver smart tools for assistance in decision-making and planning to human drivers.
You spend a lot of time as a coach going through every possible scenario. That’s the kind of level of depth and versatility you have to go through. When I did that, things started to really fall into place.
I always embrace the worst-case scenario.
When you have a nightmare, you think, ‘What caused this?’ And then you can sometimes get the same scenario two or three nights, back to back. Or something really bad happens, and you feel absolutely sad and do not want it to be real. You don’t want to fall asleep and get sucked back into that same dream.
If I wasn’t acting, I would own a farm. Not like growing crops but maybe have a few animals like cows, and maybe an alpaca or a llama. I would chop wood all day. I would make a living doing that; it’s, like, an idealistic scenario for me. It’s very contrary to my upbringing, but maybe that’s the appeal to it.
I do tend to be an anxious fellow, and I do tend to see the world as a little darker than perhaps it genuinely is, but I also do appreciate much more than a rosy scenario, I appreciate straight news. I appreciate honesty.
An auditory scenario for the players to act out with their instruments.
A couple days before the stunts, if I’m doing something particularly dangerous, I will go over every worst-case scenario in my head, like this could happen, this could happen, this could happen, this could happen. I try to think about that to where it’s ingrained in me.
I read widely – for news, the arts, science, for entertainment, and the value of being informed – and, as a fiction writer, I can’t help transposing what I learn into the scenario for a novel or story.
You can draw inspiration from anything.

With ‘Black Sea,’ I long had an idea that I wanted to do a film about people stuck on the bottom of the ocean. I thought that was a terrifying scenario.
‘District 9′ was a singular anti-Apartheid metaphor, and ‘Elysium’ is a more general metaphor about immigration and how the First World and Third World meet. But the thing that I like the most about the metaphor is that it can be scaled to suit almost any scenario.
I’ve been doing all my progression in the gym, in a very controlled scenario. It’s been a confidence booster.
The reason that we don’t have happy hours up here is because you never know when something might actually go sideways, and so we always have to be prepared in a worst, worst case scenario to jump on our spacecraft and go home. So, we have to keep it pretty straight and narrow while we’re up here.
Ultimately, China may use force to push for unification with Taiwan, a scenario we all must work to prevent.
I suppose the worst case scenario is that people will get to the point where they can’t actually afford to make what they want to make creatively. The industry is collapsing.

Governing today means giving acceptable signs of credibility. It is like advertising and it is the same effect that is achieved – commitment to a scenario.

My goal was to have a company off the ground by the time I graduated. But the worst-case scenario was I would have an MBA and a lot of opportunities ahead of me.
If I get too type-cast, that’s the worst possible scenario.

As a parent I provide all I can, but I think in the best possible scenario you need to have a man.
A forecasting game is a kind of simulation, a kind of scenario, a kind of teleconference, a kind of artifact from the future – and more – that enlists the participants as ‘first-person forecasters.’
Whenever you have a failure or setback, you need to take a step back and find out what you can learn from the scenario. What did you do to contribute to that failure? This way, you can make sure you don’t repeat that pattern.
I think the really cool and compelling thing about math and physics is that it opens up entry to all these hypotheticals – or at least, it gives you the language to talk about them. But at the same time, if a scenario is completely disconnected from reality, it’s not all that interesting.
The best-case scenario is that the glass shatters in my face! How do you think that makes me feel?
I was told that my best-case scenario would likely consist of writing my memoir and then disappearing.
While a lot of management development books try to teach you a lesson or give you a scenario of what corporate culture and work practices are about, they’re theoretical and written in a sermonizing way. Most people don’t get past the first chapter, and they just look nice on the bookshelf.
This plastic doesn’t go away by itself, and to just let hundreds of thousands of tons of plastic be out there to be fragmented into these small and dangerous microplastics to me seems like an unacceptable scenario.
Having buildings, growth models, having great progress, flyovers, and no human being is feeling for human being is a nightmare scenario.
I think that’s what a lot of writers do, create a totally fantastical scenario that is a reflection of something else going on in their life.

If Iran and North Korea, by some horrible, devilish, nightmarish scenario, got together and went to war at the same time, one against Saudi Arabia and one against South Korea, I don’t know what we would do about that. I don’t know that we could stop them short of using nuclear weapons.
Look at films like ‘Raazi,’ ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ and ‘Padmaavat’… women in our film industry have changed the whole scenario. They are no less than our male actors.

What the Snowden scenario proved is that the weakest link is not the technology, the weakest link is the individual; we shouldn’t kid ourselves.
When you’re allowed to tell stories with ambiguity and darkness and things that are still unresolved, that’s the dream scenario as opposed to having to fit into a more procedural mode or something a little more conventional. That’s not what’s working on TV right now.
An asteroid impact in the worst case scenario is a terrifying thing. It seems very uncontrollable: in popular culture, it’s often a metaphor for human powerlessness over the world.
I’m having a great career, though I think I’m not as good as your little scenario makes me out to be.
