That jedi mind trick thing seems pretty cool.

Contact ball juggling..wait, I can do that. Sword swallowing..wait, I can do that too. Nail into the head trick..yeah, can do that. Long needle piercing..hell, that's no biggie just stupid. Balloon animals, yeah, can do that too. Street instruments, a few of those.. Mime, got that. Too old for much of that and contortions too. (I think I'm finally realizing my true calling in life)

I got it... Trick shooter on llama! Suppose they'll allow that downtown? Use bio paintballs and such, everything green, up in the air.

I wish I had the skill to make a living by not having marketable employment skills. That sounds fun, entertaining and a fly by the seat of your pants sort of way to live. Oh wait....I'm not wearing pants. Nevermind.

The ability to pull a Free State beer out of a hat at will.

I'd like to be able to harness the power of lightning and use it to kill off my enemies. Second choice would be to have the ability to turn an acorn into a can of PBR.
