Sorry, this is going to be a "lame" post, but I wanted to post since like....two nights ago.

I saw "JUmpers" the other day and then i got to thinking while watching it. In the story, for those who could really care less, the main character realizes that he has the ability to teleport from one point to another, as long as he can "see" it. I think it is a pretty cool power and I wish I had it too. Then I could visit my friends and family on the mainland without having to deal with "Homeland Security." Furthermore, getting to work would be a breeze!

But anyway, getting back to this post, as I am very tired and my eyelids are about to drop at any given moment, so, this guy realizes he can do this and what does he do? He starts robbing banks and what not. Well, being who I am, I get to thinking...

"If I were given, or found out I had, such a power, or any power for that matter, what would I do with it?"

So I pose this to you! yeah, what would I do? Find out later. I want to see what everyone responds. Try to be honest. Only you know yourself. My best friend mentioned that she would rob some banks using the power. But I am curious what others would do? So, share, what would you do if you had the power to teleport or any other "super" power?

I think that teleportation thing where you can teleport to somewhere as long as you can "see" is was taken from Anne McCaffery's Dragonriders of Pern series... The dragons in that series could do exactly that!

I would not have the courage to rob banks if I could teleport, especially with all of the cameras and security systems and such.

The one thing I would absolutely love is the ability to fly. Not like airplanes and stuff, but to have wings or the ability to soar without machines. I would fly everywhere and not have to worry about cars at all (which I absolutely hate driving). I wouldn't be afraid to apply for jobs across the island, and I would not be afraid of getting lost because I could always fly up into the sky and look at the land below to get my direction straight. Plus it would be great exercise.

And a second ability I would love is to find lost things. Like if I'm missing a pencil I would make my mind find it and somehow I would pinpoint an item in my mind and find it behind a couch, in the trash or something. Or if my friends dog runs away, I would be able to psychic-ly pin point it's exact direction in town. I could get an awesome job with the police looking for missing suspects or fugitives on the run.

Yeah, i totally could not rob a bank! I can't even download music for free, that's how bad I am! Finding lost things would be helpful, as I am chronically losing things (bah!)

Thanks for the comment!

If I could have something magical/a superpower.. I'd want a bag that could fit anything! Cars, lamps, the contents of a bank or casino vault... XD (of course, walking in and out with a little bag.. who would ever realize it was me?) ~ So yes, add me to the 'would rob a bank' list ^^ hehe

Pfft... Easy... I'd sucker punch old people. Everyone thinks they're crazy so they won't even pay attention when they say that "a man magically teleported in and punched me!" =P

Dunno honestly, I think I'd use it for that shortcut thing you were talking about to go visit you know who on a regular basis =P (and yes I'd probably rob a bank vault or two... ;P )

I think I would use it to get to work, maybe go see some sites. shopping and getting wash done would be a breeze.

Bank robbing idea in my opinion is a lack of imagination b/c that means that you are driven either by the need of money (more likely the case) or adrenaline. With teleporting ability there are definitely more interesting places to go and things to do. My first association with the word ‘teleport’ is ‘travel’ (ha, maybe because I spend most of what I earn on that and have enormous fun while being on the road). LOL, speaking of travel – I’d add to the package the time travel as well!

Not really a superpower, but I think it'd be incredible to talk to the dead. Our house is haunted - fo' real - and I'd love to have a conversation with whoever is living with us. And I'd like to talk to some of my dearly departed, too.

Shapeshifting would be pretty incredible, too.
