    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...

        True.. But leave it to my motherly instinct superpower to tell them what they really want!

      that is a dangerous power because you would also know what people think of you....sometimes it's better to be in the dark

      I'd like the power of deception.

      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. 

      Yup.  I want the superpower of deception. lol

      Bit late but I'll try smile

      You couldn't actually do anything other than stare, lasciviously. Touching would involve lots of freaked out wimmin and shrieking I'd imagine big_smile

      Why not just go for the power of Selective Attraction? That way you could switch on your super power when you spot the wimmin you want ...

            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!smile
