    Would you rather ... Fly, Read Minds or Be Invisible?

    I honestly think I'd rather be able to have the power of invisibility, and not for the obvious reason one may think.  I'd love to be able to go into the backrooms of Congress, and even world negotiations, and see what the people are actually talking about.  I'd also be able to stop crimes, since I could steal weapons from criminals in the middle of the act and there is nothing they could do about it!

    I would rather fly because it would be cheap transportation

    I expect that when we die, we can do all three.

    Flying sounds like a good way to end up crashing and dying.  Women have been reading minds for eons and look where it has gotten them.  I already feel invisible in my local community and the body politic…. So… I might was well be invisible all together.

    Yes, I'd much rather be invisible too. I considered reading minds but you would actually have to be close to that person. If I were invisible i could travel any where without being noticed and I think listening in to peoples conversations without being noticed would be much more advantageous. Think of all the political lies you could reveal and the cover ups you could uncover.  But this invisibility would have to be a turn on and off thing so that I could have a normal life too. Otherwise I'd go with mind reading.

    Great question!

    I was going to say fly,but after reading some other responses,invisiblility would allow me to fly for free.

    Reading minds I'll pass on,I'm pretty good at feeling people out,yeah maybe if I could read their mind I would know their true agenda and feelings towards me. But I wouldn't want it because their  also some sick,perverted people in the world,you never know who you'll bump up against.

    Invisible is my vote.

    Fly, definitely fly.  Invisible would be my second choice and might be more handy - but flying would be cool.

    Read Minds. It's my dream. I would love to be able to know what others know. Understand their thought patterns, know if someone needed help without talking to them, know what they really wanted to say, etc.

    I want to be invisible....that way I could go to the homes of my students and find out why they are having so many issues at school...or find out how the parents of the well behaved children discipline their children...it sure would help me as a teacher!

    This is a great question because it's so damn hard to pick. I guess my first choice would to read minds. Of course, you have to be prepared to know what other people think...I imagine it some would be pretty terrifying and others might be just sick and wrong...but, wouldn't it be great to find out what people really think? Hmmm

    fly! read minds could be very disturbing and add stress where it is not necessary...it would also remove the mystery. Being invisible, I already know how to do that!!!LOL
    Flying, I can visit the people I love... and go meditate on a mountain every day.

    Pervy-me would love to be able to turn invisible. Professional me would love to be able to read the minds - it would make finding journalism scoops much easier.
    If I had to pick one though, it would be flight. Oh, to soar!

    Fly, like I soar in my dreams. it's a wonderful feeling. (could I still fly while holding shopping bags by a tether?

    Reading minds and being invisible would expose me to people thoughts and actions that I would not want to be privy to.

    Besides I have enough voices in my head. I certainly don't want to read the mind of the crack whore as she walks by me on the sidewalk. (yeech!)

    I feel that I am already invisible already when trying to get the waiter to come over to my table.
