New Poll!

By a generous margin, you guys voted that my power animal should be a bear, a godless killing machine. Woo!

Speaking of power(s), the new poll is to pick the best super power. Super powers that I thought about including are:

  • Controlling the weather (boy would I have liked that yesterday)
  • Talking to animals
  • Water into wine
That whole healing/regeneration power would also be kinda handy right about now.

Teleporting would be nice. That way, you wouldn't have to fly, but you could get anywhere in a jiffy. You could also dictate the weather by going wherever the weather is to your liking. And, you could teleport yourself to someplace where the wine is cheaper than the water.

Great call--I traded that with the photographic memory. That one was pretty weak.

I went with teleporting, too.

Flying would be great, because you could totally score with chicks by taking them 30,000 feet in the air, a la Superman II, but with teleporting, you could be in and out in an instant, and you don't have to deal with the "should I call her already? maybe I should wait...."

how about reading people's minds?? i think that would come in handy about all the time......

I have always wanted the ability to freeze time.

You know I thought about mind reading, time travel, and being able to see the future, but I thought those would be more of a downer than a good thing.

Cappy--I'm glad that when evaluating hypothetical super powers, you still work within the "what would help me score with chicks?" framework. ;)

As for time freezing, that's a good one, too. Seems kind of unfair that Hiro gets both teleporting and time freezing, eh?

I submit the power to change minds would be the best super power. You could end the age of political and religious dogma! And change popular opinion away from John Mayer being a popular musician

While I did not initially vote for bears, this story made me change my mind:

Do you really want a power animal that is THAT much of a badass?

I officially change my last poll answer from great white to bear. Is there a word for the ability to turn facial bone into powder? Maybe that should be added to the super power poll.

Based on the actual poll options, I have to go with flying in a close call over telekinesis. If allowed to go with the non-poll options, stopping time would kick ass, but I might have to agree with BC about turning facial bone into powder

I actually spend a ridiculous amount of time thinking about this. I always go for stopping time. I will keep all of my devious motivations off the internet. I think there was a show or a movie where you could unfreeze someone by touching them to take with you. I haven't quite figured out the traffic issue, though. Obviously gotta get a Vespa, but all those stopped cars on the highway are a bit daunting.
