The ability to shut off thought and pain in the brain. My first task, would be to relieve those compelled to post first on the OTS. Next, would be to help Babboy forget that hairbrush he sat on. (Sorry Babboy, it was too easy.) ,;-)

The ability to absorb other people's superpowers from them and use them as my own.

How do you know you don't have this superpower, and have never come across someone else with one?

To read people's minds would be my choice. Then I could become star reporter for LJW & see how many times I could get sued for libel and win.

To make the luny left have common sense so we can live in a normal world inhabited by normal people, without all the controversy and weirdness of those weirdo freaky people.

To be invisible. Oh what fun I could have! And I could get tons more done every day if the grandkids couldn't see me.

Hmmm, if I can have only one it will take time to decide which of the others I would be willing to give up.

The ability to see through objects. Just imagine how well you could do in poker if you could see everyone's hand and know what cards are coming up.

It would be a nice addition to my known ability to turn people into newts.

"I want the ability to make Sarah Palin sound intelligent..." Compare what she says to what Joe "where's the Xanax?" Biden says on any given day. Slam dunk.
