    Which superpower would you choose?

    I heard this on NPR's "This American Life", and decided to conduct this experiment on this board.

    If you could choose one of two superpowers: flight or invisibility, which would you choose? You could not do both, only one. If you'd like to give a reason, that would be cool as well.

    I'm such a nosy girl, I would chose to be invisible. Think of all the juicy conversations you could listen on in. You would truly be a fly on the wall.

    Invisibility, so no one could see you and think of everything you could listen to.:D Plus people would see a flying person, right?

    I chose flight, because most of the time I am invisible - because I am so quiet. If I could fly, I could fly far away from here. Sort of like Dorothy in the "Wizard of OZ"

    Bluebirds fly, Birds fly over the rainbow
    why then oh why can't I"...

    I'd have to fly....I'm always on the go and travel is my, oh no, my third addiction! (Figure skating, movies and travel). I guess I'd be better off with a lear jet that had a widescreen and a mini-Blockbuster (that also had a figure skating section...what a dream!).

    I would choose flight. It would be cool to soar above the traffic.

    Flight sounds good, but if you aren't invisible people will see you and then the government will lock you up for experiments, so I choose invisibility! Somebody you're trying to avoid? Invisible.
    somebody coming to attack you? Invisible
    Want to find out how other people live? become invisible and follow them home.... spooky right!!
    want to check out that mansion on the corner? become invisible and let yourself in to take a tour.

    Well, couldn't you just fly away?

    I chose flying. I luuuurve planes, etc. :D I've dreamed of flying, and it was really great. I don't think words can describe the feeling.

    I wouldn't want to be invisible. I'm very good at reading people as it is, and if I could choose, quite often I'd prefer not to know what they're thinking.

    Flying.

    I've often dreamt of being able to just push off and float above all that is going on, just like a glider. I can steer where I want to go and see what I want to see. That would just be soooo cool to actually be able to do that!

    (seems to me though, that I've often had trouble 'landing' in those dreams...wonder what the dream interpreters would have to say about that? )
