The power to have others understand what I say without some assumptive spin ...

and the corollary

the power to understand what another means despite the words they choose ...

So naturally every problem you have with communication is someone elses fault?

If you meant this to be funny, it's hilarious.

If not, it's hilarious + about 20%.

You could start doing Flatulism shows, and call yourself a Flatulist.

It might give Craig @ Promystic a new outlet for his creativity...

I applied to be a super-stud in porno films - but I failed the medical.
Maybe it's because I wrote 'Not Sure' beside the question 'Male/Female' on the application form.

Are you kidding? This is the internet, you know. There's a niche for that. There's always a niche for anything.

I don't think I'd want to be a porn star. Can you imagine looking at your schedule and thinking, "Great. Sex, again. Yawn..."

You sure can bring down a fun thread.
Actually, I had a dream once where I made a wish to always know the right thing to do. Shortly afterwards (in the dream) I discovered I had become a superhero- performing emergency open heart surgery because I just instantly knew how to do it, entering the right building to disarm a hidden bomb (because I knew where it was, and which wire to cut), knowing to duck now to avoid a gunshot, etc. And instead of trying to decide between one of two ex-girlfriends vying for my affection, I knew to dump both of them.

It was really pretty cool.


This reminds me of an old Twilight Zone episode called "What You Need". It was about a peddler named Pedott who sells people items that turn out later to be essential. He sells one guy, named Fred Renard, a pair of scissors, which turn out to save Fred's life when his tie is caught in an elevator. Fred winds up demanding more and more from this guy. I won't ruin the ending, but it does suit the story with a twist, of course.

I'd personally would like to have the power to make anyone at anytime crap their pants. If your boss is about to reprimand you, make them crap their pants and they will have to postpone it. Keep it going and they'll soon forget to do so! If you get pulled over for speeding, make him crap his pants and you'll quickly see him turn off his lights and pull away very quickly...no ticket! So many countless situations where it would be beneficial and entertaining.

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

If it was a single super power I would pick super speed like the Flash.

If it were to have the powers of one super-hero I would pick John Jonze The Martian Manhunter.

The Wolverine/Deadpool healing factor makes one immune from disease, slows the effects of aging considerably, and even allows one to re-grow severed limbs. I can think of myriad uses for those things.
