    If you had the opportunity to wake up tomorrow having gained any one ability or quality, what would it be?

    For me, I'd like the ability to stop and restart time at my will. I would continue to function in real-time, while everyone and everything around me would be frozen, until I restarted the time. Oh, the fun I would have...! :mischievous:

    Yes, you can have two, Princess...because I have a back-up, too. I'd like the ability to be invisible at will. I suppose it's the opposite of my original wish...

    I just downloaded this game...it's quite the blast.

    I also really enjoyed all three recent installments in the Sands of Time saga.

    The power to blaspheme

    If a man had the power to literally blaspheme people in their hearts for ill will. With your faith in him he could use the blaspheme talent to cure any disease.

    My definition of the blaspheme talent is: They would verbally say ouch when saying something wrong. People who are less moral would actually be blasphemed least. They would not even deserve the honor of being blasphemed. The blaspheme wouldn't be for the one that has it. It could be used as a tool to help you stay on the right path. The blaspheme talent would be creative and versatile.

    To speak of (God or a sacred entity) in an irreverent, impious manner

    I've often wished for the exact same ability. It would be awesome, provided that I didn't continue to age while everyone else stayed young. You could be the biggest lazy shit on the planet and still always get things done on time. Not to mention all the mischief you could get away with if everything around you was frozen in time... stealing money, borrowing from Jay Leno's car collection, searching Jessica Alba's apartment for sex tapes, shitting in the Olsen twin's mouths... the possibilities are endless!

    Other than that I'd like the ability to actually be able to reverse time, to manipulate objects or other people's thoughts and emotions with my mind, or omniscience: knowing anything and everything about anything and everything, and being able to read other's thoughts.

    More realistically, I'd really like the ability to talk my way out of (or into) any situation. To be a slick-as-shit conman like Leonardo DiCaprio in Catch Me If You Can.

    Well, seeing as Lexingtony has picked such a cool one, I'll settle for the ability to mend broken hearts.

    It's s big business. :wink:

    I KNOW I KNOW! I would wake up with the ability to detect any lie told by anyone.

    Hell. Yes.

    I'd be happy with levitation/flight. It would be a dream come true.

    The ability to turn back time at will. I'd love to live in another era. I'd also like to meet all my dead relatives who I never got to know in person.

    I'd definitely go for psychokinesis: the ability to move things with my mind. Such things would include myself (enabling flight) and large things, like....say....jumbo jets (so I could rescue them like Superman).

    And this choice comes from having played and mastered both X-Men Legends I & II and having Jean Grey as my absolutely favorite character.

    The ability to become invisible at will at any time so I could get to see some of my favorite people naked and maybe even have sex with them while I was invisible:smile: mostly to those who have turned me down.


    I could also use it to go around the world and check to see if all the persons posting pictures here are really who they say they are

    I thought about this some more and there are so many things I'd like to be able to have the power to do but I'd say the one that really resonates with me would be to have the power to remove all hatred from this world...yeah, I know...typical beauty pageant answer, but that's what I would want.

    I would like to wake up one morning with the ability to sing on key and play the guitar.
