Knowing me, It would probably be something lame. I think the most criminal thing I've ever done is steal a pencil from school. If anything I'd just be stealing art supplies, lol. So "art-supply-theif", I guess :p

Eeeh… I’m not really much into criminal acts. However, I can be quite lazy at times, so maybe I would be a plagiarism specialist and rob other people of their hard work.

Hmm, that is quite a hard question actually. I would probably be a stationary stealer because I'm not really one for stealing but if I see someone with better stationary than me I get mad. So in my new life, I would rob it LOL.

This, and it sure does work all the time :p

OK seriously though, it depends on who I'm talking to, I'll just try to appeal to our mutual interests, be it engineering (for people from uni), Pokemon (GO players I meet in Raids) or whatever else.
There's no one thing I always do, although I have a few jokes and stories handy I might throw in if I really feel like the ice isn't broken well enough yet.

As someone who loves sports and Pokemon obviously, I'll usually start by introducing myself and asking if my potential friend is into sports.

My dogs, lol. I also tend to talk about my family because they're kinda weird, and people often find stories about them funny :p

I am extremely socially anxious so I never really start any conversations. I usually just talk when I need to ask really important questions or when I badly need help and there's no other option other than talking.

But the few times I had tried to talk, I had kind of initiated the conversation by complimenting the other person as I had thought it was the least likely to generate a negative response. For eg:- I had once told a girl that her nail-polish was very pretty (which btw it really was), and then it had slowly turned into a conversation about us discussing make-up products and stuff.

My "icebreaker" usually starts with a facial expression of like :'D before going hello! If we're in an awkward situation together it's usually even more appropriate because I have a shared experience to reference.

I'll usually say "what're the haps" otherwise and try to start a conversation that way. It doesn't fail me very often.

If you look through the bulbagarden discord I'm literally the only person that ever says "what are the haps" :p

I never met someone IRL from the online world. The closest I came was calling my closest online friend a few years ago. It was such a great experience, and I could tell she was as young as she said she was. :D

I wish we never lost contact though, she moved and wasn't online at all after awhile.

Never meet any online people IRL. I don't think I've ever conversed with someone enough to actively try and meet up with them.
