    I was listening to This American Life when i heard the most amazing question ever:

    Which superpower would you rather have, flight or invisibility?

    Flight - You can fly like an jet, but you can only carry what you would be able to carry with you what you would normally be able to carry.

    Invisibility - Your clothes become invisible too (you don't have to be nudeicon_redface.gif), but you can't make random things invisible.

    Flight, because my idol SuperMan does it and having the ability to levitate will make sex with The Green Lantern even more interesting.

    flight. I see no need to spy on people or hide from things. I'd rather be more pro-active with my super power.

    Flying, for sure! I'd love to feel the wind in my face and the sensation of weightlessness! icon_biggrin.gif

    Are you going to wait until you get more responses before you tell everyone what the psychologists on This American Life said about the people that wanted each superpower?

    Btw, I remember listening to that episode in high school, like 6 years ago. What station are you listening to?

    Invisibility is only useful for... "bad" things. Making jokes, spying people, stealing... whatever. It's pretty unlikely that someone would do good things while their invisible. When we behave well, we like to be seen and acknowledged. Maybe it can be useful for dissapear from time to time but.. c'mon.. you can do that without a power xD.

    Flying sounds pretty cool and would save tons of time (if you are the only one, or very few people can do it).

    With that said... I'm still not really sure about which would I pick.

    I'm curious about the "American Life" thing opinion xD

    Invisibility. I could make a killing as an international assassin. Actually I could make just as much as thief, but some people just need to be wacked.

    Flight because apparently I'm already invisible to most people.

    Flight.

    It lets people know you're above them.

    Invisibility: it doesn't let people know you're near them.

    No, you're not! icon_wink.gif

    Which superpower? Flight or invisibility? Both are passe. I'd choose to wield the lasso of truth.

    Zim, where are you, buddy?

    Flight. It would provide some great bird's-eye perspectives for taking pictures and make travel a breeze.

    Flight

    Just imagine all the places you could visit on just a whim!

    And when hooking up you'd no longer be to the locals..............

    How can invisibility beat that?

    Invisibility. If you were trying to fly in to whack the bad guys, they'd just shoot you down with their shoulder strapped Stingers, lol. If invisible, you could sneak into the Taliban camp and video tape the bastards doing one of their secret 'rape the hairless 13 yr old boy' rituals and post it on YouTube to completely discredit them. It's very Air Force vs CIA and I'd take the CIA approach. Minus the waterboarding.

    flight... i have a tough time seeing how invisibility can always be used for good. so many people i know have said that if they could be invisible for a day they would do something asocial like rob a bank.
