    what would it be?

    and I don't mean "China" or "Russia", I mean like the ability to read people's minds, or the ability to find your car keys psychically....

      I would not want to be given super powers -
      too much responsibility; skills would be nice though the ability to develop a talent to a high level.

    There are so many I would love but invisible would be my pick if I could only pick one.

    I could listen into conversations, go out in public looking like - whatever I want to look like, get out of boring and needless conversations in an instant, never have to worry about a place to hide when I see those annoying people coming, relax without being bothered, trip other people out by moving things around, catch people doing stuff they should be doing, get on a cruise ship without paying, get on a train without paying...there's so much I could do.

    It's one of the fantasies I drift off to sleep with smile

      @A.G. I feel I should point out that if you were invisible, you wouldn't look like anything.  Also, being invisible wouldn't necessarily inhibit your ability to have a boring and needless conversation..or get out of it.

      ...just sayin' big_smile

    Flying.  I love to travel and it would beat the prices I'm now paying for air fare.

    I would really love to teleport.  I dislike driving for long distances so being able to instantly be there would be awesome. 
    Or maybe time travel. Then I could go back and fix all my costly mistakes.  Probaly wasted a years income on my dumb financial decisions.
    Or maybe I can just be really charming and subtly influence people to get my way. I can be pretty charming.

    the ability to see through clothing

      i agree. that's why i'd like to be superman, as he not only has the power to see through clothes, but he's also the most powerful man on the planet.  therefore, i could technically, in theory, do whatever i wanted.  wink

      No, you don't!
      Do you want to see all fat "b**s naked?

    I'd like to have the power to subliminally and irreversably alter the minds of all humans, to change their mindset to one of co-operative understanding, an unerring willingness to listen to others, and be responsible for their own actions.  To make 'being kind to others' second nature. smile

    I'd like the power to teleport myself anywhere in the world.  I particularly would have loved this power in the dead of winter when I had to drive to work in snow and ice. lol
