    SUPER POWER: You have one. You do what with it?

    Fly (or "jump" from any point on earth to another in an instant).
    Walk through anything. Go invisible at will. Stop a jumbo jet in midair. Read people's thoughts. Withstand extreme temperatures.
    Etc.

    Any super power of YOUR choice.

    But you can have only one.
    What would that be? And, What would you do with it?

    Me? I'd like to be able to use how to use ANY instrument - musical or any machine - like the devil himself.

    What would I do with it?
    I'd call up some people to jam.
    But also for myself, when alone, it would provide me with great solace and pleasure to just whip out tune.

    I always thought it would be cool to be invisible. What do I do with it? Probably a lot.

    Being able to bi- or trilocate would be handy when the grandkids come to visit.

    to be able to read any and all langues include ancient sand script as well as be able to speak it as well but be able to breath under water would be cool also

    Maybe I'm standing right behind you and you don't even know it.
