    What would it be, and why?

    Me: i thought long and hard about this one...while there are plenty of cool ones, like Flying, Shapeshifting, Super-Intelligence, etc. i have tried to think which could have the biggest impact on me, as well as the world around me...so that i could benefit, but so could the world.

    i have decided that my power would be:

    THE POWER TO HEAL
    (but not to keep from natural death, or resurrect/save once dead... etc.)

    my reasons - it would do the most for the world, plus i could also benefit greatly from it, both in terms of goodwill, and success.

    for example...
    for people with nothing and very little, i would heal them for free...
    - the conditions i would place upon them would be only that they in turn, do something nice/charitable/volunteering, in some way or another for a set amount of time.

    that would be par for the course for all those i healed...

    but i would charge those who could afford it, something very reasonable, considering how many people i would be healing....such as a sliding scale per illness and per economic situation of the afflicted.

    but i would never charge more than a certain amount, like say, $100, even for the most severe illnesses.

    that way, i would earn 10s of billions, or even more, plus be doing good, and i could donate much of that money to causes i liked, while also living a fun life, of travel and such.


    what would yours be?

    Agreed. That would be a good one. I do think a lot of it would be very disturbing though. Beneath the thin veneer of etiquette and civility are some very raw drives and emotions.

    Telepathy is overrated.

    Time travel would be cool.

    The ability to stop time. Not sure if it's got a name, but I guess it falls under space-time manipulation. But I wouldn't want to be able to go back in time, too tempting.

    Nope. I'm convinced flying would be entertaining.
