If you had a super power, what would it be?
« on: August 03, 2013, 02:36:23 AM »
I would want the power to make anyone fall in love with me!

Of course though I wouldn't abuse it, I would only reserve that power for one person... :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*

But of course, I wouldn't need to use it in the first place!  As long as I have Outin by my side!   ;D

within reason that's arguably a skill that you can learn...

I wonder how would that fare with J Menz. 

Would you switch superpowers when you switch to J Menz's personality?!

I wonder what he has!!!



By the power vested in me, I summon you J Menz!!!  To share with us what super power you would want!!!

Not exactly a super power, but probably that of more rapid learning and understanding. Ever since schooldays I would still be thinking about lesson three while the rest of the class studied lesson forty-three, and music has been no exception. It is likely part of the reason I have spent my life creating my own music; because I am hopeless at understanding anybody else's. I am not necessarily complaining, a naive approach from first principles carries its own peculiar advantages. However, I really would like to be able to read a book or treatise of substance or complexity without the compulsive pondering and paging backwards and forwards which invariably accompany such an endeavour.

Well, obviously I could use a super memory...but if that's not available, I might like the idea of being able to make any people  I want vanish from the earth...for good...

Omg, I would totally want that as a super power, as well. But I would choose the power to charm anyone with amazing beauty and intelligence...hehe.

Even more important would be perfect, indestructible hearing, though.  :-*

Didn't think of immortality as a super power, but I certainly wouldn't mind living forever...if nothing else, just to see how forever looks like...It's hard to see how living could ever become boring, especially since I get to do it with my favorite person :)
And so much piano literature to learn...a few hundred years would be nothing...and if I knew I had the time I could take up playing the harp too!

Haven't seen Highlander.. Had to wikipedia it :) But fighting other immortals is not my idea of living for eternity ;) (I also read they could die if beheaded, so that also defies what I understand for immortality!)

@outin, I agree! I think I'd pick up the violin ;)

You'd have to be immortal at a younger age though, iykwim, somewhere between 25 and 50 I reckon. I know 50 isn't old...but you seem to lose energy as you get older. Imagine living forever and just getting older and more decrepit, that would be some kind of curse. If you were immortal could you kill yourself?

BTW, Highlander is an amazing film! The follow ups are a bit dire though.

Oh, of course! I should have clarify...! I'd become immortal now. Before 30 :) Not too young, not too old :) Again, my view of immortality would be that I wouldn't get older physically, just wiser!

I'll watch it. (Sounds like something my other half would really enjoy! Easy browny point for me! hahaha)

You may want to think again, yes, unless you are very good at saying goodbye to all those people you will like/love, but who don't have that immortality. Sounds like a punishment to me. ;)

That's why I mentioned Highlander!

@Maitea I'm a woman and I enjoyed it! My other half loves it! I'll stop banging on about it now.

Other people are not so important that I would give up my immortality for them...And I always assumed I would be the only one with that. Definitely better not to share forever with anyone...

Don't know who Shirley is...but it might get uncomfortable if there was someone around who knows too much about your (thousand years or more) past  :P

About 1.05ish. I'm beginning to think I watch too many films.
But what if you've shared the thousand years with the same person, so you'd know all about their past too.

The video didn't work but of course I've seen the film...I've watched a huge amount of films too, but I don't memorize the lines  ;)

Why would I want to know all about someone else's past?
The fun part of living forever when others don't is that you'll get to start over with a new generation of people every 100 years or so :)

Maybe you wouldn't, but if they know all about yours it puts you on level pegging. You could torture each other for eternity. Literally ;)

But what happens if you like the people from the current 100 years or so?

You'd have to go through losing the people closest to you over and over again, which I suppose would be an advantage when playing pieces in a minor key....

Ya but with eternity or eternal life in the human form, first you have to stop thinking in terms of a thousand years and make the intervals more like a million or two or three or a billion. With my mind and memory skill ? Ya right, you think I'm gonna remember who I tortured or if I tortured them a million years from now ?

This eternity thing has me buffaloed anyway , if there is eternity how can we live for only years  ? How can everything in life be timed out ? If there is eternity, then there is no time, it's irrelevant isn't it ? Now I want to know who made up the term eternity in the first place and what dimension is timed life actually in  !!

Let's say one day, I develop another personality like J Menz, and my other personality decides to throw you off a cliff and into a pit with lava and death spikes and lava sharks.

Would you still wanna be immortal?

Of course though, I would NEVER do that to you!  Because I like you and I think you're a good person. :)

I'd go for immortality, the good one without any catches.  There's always a catch in those deals.  Something like I'd have to be immortal but still have a normal appearance etc.  Otherwise you end up wandering around as a shadow, technically immortal but not quite what I meant.

Short of that the ability to heal or regenerate quickly.  Similar to immortality but not so far.

Living so long is going to be a problem eventually though. People are going to start looking into it.  Maybe plenty of intelligence so I could hack the system and change my age and background info.

And money.  That would be good.

I'd go for having a lot of energy throughout the day.  Also good.



I did recently hear about someone saying if you became immortal the chances of you ending up immobilized become greater.  At some point, you end up in a situation where you're stuck, but you're not dead either.  

Or maybe something like being able to heal.  Heal myself.  Heal other people.  They'd pay me if I saved their life.  Then there would be more people around to continue developing things.  *Bob thinks he'd probably be lazy and just heal the whole world at once instead of trying to deal with individual people.*  I'd probably end up with people trying to thank me and that would get really old after a while.  That's all I'd ever hear.  I'd probably be sorry I healed everyone if they didn't shut up about it after a while.  So it would have to all be anonymous.  Or I could just not do it all and I'd be right here where I am now.  That's what you get for trying to heal the world.  If people weren't so polite all the time maybe I'd do that.  Well I'm not doing it now.  I get enough spam in my email as it is.  Someone would find my email address and then I'd be inundated with spam 'thank yous.'  

Let's see... I could go more memory, more brainpower, more creativity...  

The ability to eat whatever I wanted with no side effects.  Or the ability to survive without eating.  That would save some time and money.

Enhanced strength.

Ability not to get sick.  A super immune system.  

Are we limited to just one?  Flying would be ok. I know I'm going to hit bugs though.  Flying + a helmet to keep bugs from hitting me in the face.  Teleportation... Just skip the flying part that way.  

Seeing in the dark.  That might be useful.  Some kind of super hearing?

Of course! One part of living is to have new experiences. I'd get out of there eventually...I'd have the time :)

I am not quite sure about the rules though...if the sharks ate my hands, would I grow new ones or would I just keep on living without them? Never mind, I could always get new ones...in fact you'd probably feel obliged to give me a pair after such a nasty trick  ;)

I have never really cared for time...I don't wear a watch or count days...if you asked me what I did yesterday, I wouldn't remember...so for me it wouldn't make much difference whether I lived 80 or 8000 years...only the world around me would probably change a bit. Would be interesting to see how...

I just wonder...if I lived forever and the human race managed to blow up this globe finally, would I get to live in the space? Cool :)
It would take me light years to get to another galaxy, but since I'd have unlimited time, I'm sure I would finally get to something interesting...must not forget my towel ;)

No indeed not that, and your toothbrush, my mother always said to brush my teeth. That's important stuff with immortality ! How will you get your piano there, to that new galaxy ?

Now I'm thinking if I can be immortal I want to find a new galaxy too ! So maybe that's my immortality wish. I'll have to think about this some more.
Depressing the pedal on an out of tune acoustic piano and playing does not result in tonal color control or add interest, it's called obnoxious.

I cant help but feel that immortality would significantly diminish the value of life in the present..

within reason that's arguably a skill that you can learn...

I choose flight.

Cool ! I've often though  that if I could be as free as birds look to be but I know they are not really, then I would like to be able to fly around like they do.

So David goes off to grow wings ? I don't think so, I want to fly without the wings if I could be granted the ability to fly.

I will just have to get a new one when I arrive...or build one...but I'm sure they have pianos as well...how could they not?

The time spent traveling must be mental practice I guess...or at least silent, no sound projection in a vacuum...

Ah, so that's when you finally get your new piano then, wonderful then !!

My wife has told me that we are never getting rid of my Henry F Miller parlor grand piano, so I guess I have to find a way to transport that to my new galaxy. I must remember my tuning hammer !

Ya, I was more the Lone Ranger outfit kind of kid when I was young. These days I don't see me in a cape any more than with wings ! I should have tried this immortality thing 30 years ago or more I guess. A pretty woman might have managed to get me into a cape under the right circumstances back then, one never knows !!! I was pretty dumb.
