If u could have powers, what would they be?

I'd have telekenesis, pyrokenesis, flying, the ability to make anything real, and of course LASER VISION!

I'd want to be able to be invisible so I could fuck with people. And I'd want to be able to like do flips in the air and stuff, I know it's not really a "specialpowerthing", but it'd be cool to do, and it'd make my ninja business alot cooler.
And Laser vision would be nice.

I'd have invisibility and mind control. Those powers work so well together.

One power. To control time.

The power to punch people in the face over the internet would be pretty awesome.

At this point, I'd like the power to withstand an internet punch.

^See that post?

Yeah, that's why I love Jesse.

I'd like to steal Bullseye's (Daredevil's rival from Marvel Comics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bullseye_(comics)) ) ability. I'm turned off by powers that are way too...powerful. I'd like to be creative with mine, y'know?

Besides, he's from the BRONX! YEAH REPRESENT! *cough*

Invisibility, breathe underwater, fly, time stop, time rewind, morph into any creature, conjure anything, INVINCIBILITY!

I would still be able to have touch (the sense) with invincibility, just don't feel pain and die.

I'd have the power to generate powers for myself. A winner is Mike.

That reminds me of the "if you could have one wish" question. I always answer "I wish to have unlimited wishes."

Ability to fly. What else would you need?

All I ever wanted was to make my semen less coke-colored AND to get rid of my chronic caffeine addiction at the same time. =(

i just figured you'd conjure up the power to be wish proof and then we could get into an argument as to which dominates, wishes or superpowers.

ps: wishes come from god.

It'd get too fuckin' cold up there though.

With my Bullseye ability, I'd be in the PBA, NBA, aaaand MLB. Ooh, and I'd join the PBA too. Word.

SkunkIt
02-13-2006, 08:52 PM
I'd want the powers to fly and teleport. I'd also want the powers to run at the speed of light, walk on water and make anything or anyone appear where I am.

Well, in that case, I would like to fly and have x-ray vision. How sweet would that be?

That's what my second PBA was supposed to be.

I failed though. :(

If I could have a power, I'd choose fire. I seem to enjoy going outside and burning crap. In the inside of my house, I love to burn candles. If I had this power, it would be very easy for me to set anything I wanted ablaze (yet, I'm not an arsonist).

JohnnyNemesis

02-14-2006, 12:48 AM
The ability to take control over a creature's mind.

Hehe.

Telekinesis
02-14-2006, 12:52 AM
telekinesis (hence the unsername) and I'd also like to be able to move from place to place in the blink of an eye like the warlocks in Charmed, and be able to freeze time like Piper in Charmed, man that show is full of awesome powers

Mannen som blev en gris
02-14-2006, 01:20 AM
Superjump, Infinite Ammo, Double Firerate, Slow Pause and Slow Motion. Yeah, TS FTW.
Seriously though, I'd like to be able to stop time, go back in time, fly, have x-ray vision and... yeah, that's pretty much it.

Too much to comment on in this thread. Some great posts.

I'd want awesomeness, but I already have it. So I suppose I'll settle for being a deity as a superpower.

It's a superpower in that I only rule the universe on weekends.

Why not also have the ability to teleport.

The power to change my erection length/shape/girth to fit whoever I'm with.

Rocky-girl

You're cruel, Yustinchek! And I choose ability to read smb thoughts and ability be strong in any cases.

H1T_That
02-14-2006, 07:15 AM
I elect the ability to hide my thoughts from psychic ppl (supposing you had chosen psychism as a mental power).

I elect the ability to be immune from other ppl's thoughts.

I elect the ability to be immune from double-think.

I forget: I elect the power of ubiquity as well.

Edit: time-travelling could come in handy as well. Come to think of it, I'd just like to be God.

edit bis: my mom's been telling me all my life that the idol of her heart, the dalai-lama, isn't only able to levitate, he can also bend objects by a sheer act of will. I think it's codswallop but I daren't tell her to her face.

edit tris: all this power-wishing is anti-philosphical. It totally obliterates the poetry of what Pascal called the grandeur inherent in the frailty of man. Furthermore, I'm convinced that if we were granted such powers, only ill could come of it. Not good. We would make lives hell for ourselves as well as others.

And man wishing for things he may never get, therein lies the poetry of his condition.

fuck, it was just a bit of fun.

my power would be to banish people with that kind of negative thinking.

H1T_That
02-14-2006, 07:20 AM
Wishing is fun. But seriously, think for a second how crushed you would be if you had any power, even that of flying.

You couldn't even commit suicide by flinging yourself from a tower. Nor could you kill someone that way. No movie would be about that theme.

The world would be even more nightmarish.

oh yeh, i agree with what you said, i was just saying i felt you came in too serious on a light hearted subject

H1T_That
02-14-2006, 07:24 AM
Haha you can be Bilbo, I'll be Gandalf (didn't he say "it was just a bit of fun" too?)

yeah, but i somewhat doubt were going to be attacked by orcs an goblins in this situation.

H1T_That
02-14-2006, 07:47 AM
No, we won't. But don't you know that when the gods want to punish you, they grant your wishes?...

Holy shit. I was skimming through this thread and read that, and at first read I didn't realize that was me, and I just started crackin' up because I thought it was hilarious.

Then I found out it was me.

I'm self-praisingly pathetic right now, but that shit caught me off-guard.

Can't travel through time, idiot. Since, there's no time. You could freeze 'time' but not travel through it.
I'd like to read minds. That'd be awesome.

If someone had gained the ability to travel through time, we would've known it by now, if they traveled to any point in the past. It's a paradox.

02-19-2006, 05:21 PM

Well, as TUNB recently braught to mind, time is a human-made perception at the way we see things. So, time is distance. A year, nothing but a revolution around the sun. In time terms, half a year ago, we were at the other side of the sun. And though you could change the position of Earth, it doesn't mean a kid will shrink.

I already knew all that. It still doesn't explain why one wishing to relive past moments of his or her life is any dumber than wanting to read minds or fly...unless you had a problem with Nounou phrasing it as "travelling" through time. And if that's your problem, it's a ridiculous one.

Yeah, I can see how certain kinds of time travel could work. At least, better than most other powers, like mind control or infinite ammo.

sk8ter-hater
02-19-2006, 05:33 PM
WEll, reading minds is a power. Traveling through time, is like saying, I want to get in a space suit and travel around the sun.
Past memories? Why not just wish you had the power to remember anything. Anywho, I did not say that wishing for powers was stupid. I just said that wishing for that particular power was stupid. And though I know wishing is meaningless, I like to see reactions. To see what's on people's minds.

JohnnyNemesis
02-19-2006, 05:36 PM
Common sense would have told you that the person didn't truly mean "traveling" through time or just "recalling" memories. The person meant the ability to ACTUALLY relive past situations...to "go back" in time. It would be a power. You're being too logical for this thread.

sk8ter-hater
02-19-2006, 05:39 PM
What if he wanted to recall memories from 1776?
I would believe time travel for knowing stuff you wouldn't normally see in your century or decade or whatever.
It's not like you're going to limit 'time travel' to your existence.

JohnnyNemesis
02-19-2006, 05:44 PM

Goddamn.


It's not like you're going to limit 'time travel' to your existence.

The point is that it's not any less logical than reading one's mind. It's about powers, kid. Anything can happen with a question like that.

sk8ter-hater
02-19-2006, 05:48 PM
Arguing with me might seem useless.
And the more I read your last sentence, the more I get lost in it. What question?
What if he wanted to recall memories from 1776?
That one?
If so, then it wouldn't be time travel.

JohnnyNemesis
02-19-2006, 05:58 PM
I meant the thread starting question. You don't seem to be bright enough to grasp something as simple as that, so I shouldn't be surprised that you can't understand how "what kind of super powers would you have" covers all kinds of illogical shit, time travel included: and that the ability to fly is just as impossible as the ability to read minds and is just as impossible as time travel and all that shit.

0r4ng3
02-19-2006, 06:01 PM
Yeah, time travel wouldn't work, so it's stupid.

On the other hand, I want to make fire. Out of thin air. Flying's good, too.

Saying 'the question' in a thread is like saying the 'thingy.'
Well, they would be powers for a reason. And I guess you do have a point. I still stand by my statement that it's more logical to read something that's not there than to actually venture in it.

No, no means yes when no means yes. Clearly not when yes means no, because that might not mean that no means yes, just that yes means no. Therefore, only no means yes means that no means yes.

Yes?

Wrong. All you have to do is pick up the thingy that kinda looks like an 8, and BOOM! Infinite ammo for 3 seconds. Tip: Wait until your ammo runs low, then activate it, this can effectively double or triple your magazine size.

The correct answer is no.
