    If given the choice, would you rather have the power to fly or the power to read minds?

    I can already read minds. So I'd like to fly, of my own ability. Without outside assistance.

    my choice will be the power to fly. when you have the power to fly you can reach your dear ones with in no time. Flying like a bird its really good and nobody wanna lose that. Reading minds!! no, its a kinda disturbance.

    I would rather fly. If you could read people's minds you'd know everything they were thinking, good and bad...but personally I wouldn't wan to know if someone was thinking something bad about me.

    But what if they were thinking about something really awful that happened to them (losing a loved one, being abused, etc.) It would be too sad...and plus what if they were thinking about doing something horrible (kill someone, rob a bank, etc.)...  yeah, you could probably stop them, but if you could read everyone's mind you couldn't stop everyone that was going to do something bad....that kind of knowledge would be too overwhemling for me.

    to fly..much cheaper and quicker especially if my wife is far from me like my case.

    Reading  minds. Somehow it is possible to find out sooner or later and in any case it is not so essential in life..

    Flight please!  That level of total freedom would be amazing.  I am very jealous of Seagulls.

    I think if you're highly intuitive you can read people thoughts.
    I'd rather fly.. [I wonder if you'd still burn calories flying as opposed to walking..] smile
