I was once asked if I could have any imaginable "super" power, what would it be?

Naturally, being me, I took about three months to come up with an answer. I want to travel to any place/time in history and find out what really happened, just to see and hear, but not be able to interfere in any way. (It would change the future from now on of course, due to my knowledge but not the past)

What you want to be able to do? What would be the consequences for you and for the world?

Mine would be to be happy. I thought a lot about the 'if you had one wish' and I sorted it out in my early teens. I want to be happy. So if some evil geni wants to twist that I figure at worst they can make me an idiot - and then I wouldn't care anyway.

Alternatively my other wish was that when you die you live someone/things else's life and then someone/things else's life and so on until you had every experience any living thing has had, then, just maybe, anything you said or thought you would have any meaning at all...

Maintain an erection 24/7 on command and also orgasm on command and be impervious to STD's.

Then I'd become the world's most highly paid porn star and be rich

I don't have to wish for that buddy already in place. It's super extra regular size. Laughing

I want to be a Jedi. Then I could say stuff and wave my hand over people's faces and they would believe me and do what I say.

me: You should now give me all your money.
me: <wave hand>
someone: Ok here take it.

me: You should nowgive me sexual pleasure.
me: <wave hand>
someone: I shall do as you ask.

How cool would that be?

Hm.....I think that I would like the ability to become invisible. You could pretty much do anything, go anywhere, be alone when you wanted, scare the crap out of the people you don't like, mess with your co-workers while they are on their 45 minute smoking breaks and personal phone calls....oh the list is endless....

I'd want to be a witch like Samantha Stevens. Actually, I'd rather be Endora.

Tough choice.

But I'm thinking wouldn't it be cool to have complete control over your body. So that way you could resist diseases, stop aging (unless you wanted to) and even have the massive penis and constant erection that bluevein wanted. Plus you'd be a great athlete, you could shapeshift and even adapt to other environments if you wanted to head off into space or under the ocean.

I thought about the invisible thing... Unless your clothes and shoes were also invisible, it would be hard for you to do whatever you wanted. You would be naked, and naked invisible people don't travel up 5th Ave well.

As for a power I'd like:
The ability to make peoples's hearts explode on my command. People would fear me. Point being, don't do stupid things that would make me want to explode your heart, and you'd be safe.

Things I consider worthy of SHED (Sudden Heart Explosion Disease- for which Pfizer has yet to make a pill): talking on the phone while driving, cutting in line- anywhere, taking too long to order coffee, not using your turning signal, voting without doing research, not voting at all, talking before you think, performing death metal or rap "music", dressing dogs in costumes... and so on, and so on.

But that's just me.

You should read the book "lullaby" by Chuck Pulaniuk (sp), you'd love it.

I'm sure I read that if you were invisible you would be blind because your retina would not absorb any light, and therefore it couldn't transmit any visual information to your brain.

Larry Niven once wrote a funny think piece on why Superman could not possible exist and why you don't want to be Lois Lane "Man of steel, woman of kleenex'

That is quite true. Though you could make every part of you invisible except for your pupil. Incidentally they've invented predator suits. You really CAN be invisible, sort of. (basically a really good chameleon system where you match the background).

the best idea
I want to be able to change the tv channel from my couch without a remote! Think of all the time I would save looking for the dang remote, plus we watch what I want to watch! And I wouldn't have to buy any more AAA batteries... I can't think of any flaws. It's perfect!

I'd like to be able to stop time. Everyone and everything else would freeze and I could do whatever I wanted. Sleep late, have leisurely meals...
