The forum on changing the world got me thinking.. if you could have a superpower what would it be and why? I think i would like the ability to read minds. that way I would be able to be more effective in my attempts to help people...
No, I didn't say dishonesty. What I'm getting at is the extreme power of being able to fool others "at need" as a survival tool. Let's say some dude decides to off me (a situation which has occasionally been threatened, though I couldn't say how serious each threat was or was not). With a deception superpower I could easily fool him into thinking I was already dead, or moved to Venus, or was too dangerous for him to comtemplate action against me.
You still think deception is a bad thing? Well, maybe it is. After all, it's the most important thing in all of war: Make the enemy army think you're going to THIS, then do THAT and wipe 'em all out. It's the basis of all fishing: Make the poor fishie think he's getting a snack, and instead he BECOMES a snack. It's the basis of most competitive sports--a boxing head fake, a football or basketball play the other side never saw coming. And the basis of poker, chess, etc.
The super power i would like most is the ability to actually understand how women thinks. Understand the women brain. Guys i beat you this time! it is absolutely the ultimate super power.No one can beat this ,i mean x-rays are cool ,but it is kid stuff compared to this.
33yrs wonderful years! I should of clarified, when we go out to eat I allways ask,"Where would you like to go?" She allways says," I don't mind you pick." This has been going on for years mind you. I'll sugest something and she'll say, "I not in the mood for that." This process goes on until I guess the right place, HELP!
To be several places at once. That way, I can work, go to the kids soccer games, get the shopping done, clean up the house, teach a dance lesson, practice my music, and attend the school meeting all while hanging out at the comic book shop!
