Okay, I'm betting that some of you might have heard this one before, but I'm still posting it since I find it pretty interesting.
You are given a choice of three super-powers:
1) Power of flight
2) Power of invisibility
3) Ability to read minds
Which one would you choose and why?

2, because there's nothing in the sky that paticularly interests me and I don't really care what other people are thinking,but if i'm invisible then nobody can find me,and then people will leave me alone.
Hmm...let me think about this. I'll cover the powers in the order least -> most/wanted
1.) Alright. While flying IS cool i think of it more as a add-on superpower. I mean flight is kewl if you have super strength with it or telekinesis. But just flight on its own? No not really. If i had the choice of nothing or flight...well...i'd ofcourse take flight. But on to the other powers.
2.)Read minds. Oh boy, that'd be kewl. Imagine a conversation with someone.
Someone: "Hey when..."
You: "Last monday..."
You: "Nah...never really liked her."
You: "Read your mind."
Man...that is a nice power. Nothing thats hidden in a human mind is a secret from you. And you'd be a kickass gambler too (always know what the other people got...is he bluffing? Yes he is.)
Wonderful power all around...but would be so better if coupled with Nr.3
3.) Invisibility. Oh yeah, that's the one i'd take. Make your profession as a thief or for you that are abit more...well...pervy...can just walk into the shower room. I think invisibility would be the best choice...for me atleast.
"Holy *****! The cops/gang members/guy from the bank/bookey/the-guy-who's-sister-you-tried-to-get-freaky-with-but-somehow-managed-to-
now-he-apparantly-has-arrived/or any other person you'd just rather:
A.) Get away from
B.) Kick into the ground (you're invisible, what's he/she gonna do?)
C.) "play" with...ala butterscotch (and those movies suck btw...not the good kind...the HORRIBLE kind...like...seen better she-male nun donkey midget porn horrible)
Ah yes...invisibility all the way.
All though i may have given the expression that it would be used for personal gain and to support my...tendencies. Then i'd ofcourse use the power wisely and only for good. With great power comes great responsibility....
*Laughs insanely as he starts running towards the girls locker room and turns invisible*
Oh another thing...something perhaps even cooler than invisibility is incorporeality...now that's some good stuff!
Until next time...
Your fluffraping hurts my eyes. - TehDarkPredator
1) Fly! Would be so awesome, can get anywhere in no-time Would have to put on alot of clothes though
2) Invisibility. Don't really like this power, I know I would get corrupt and steal things, check girls locker rooms, etc. etc.
3) How can you be friends with someone when you can read their mind? They are bound to think something bad about their friend, lets face it, we all do that sometimes even to your best friend, so you'll get *****ed around other people.
So fly is the most badass power.
Fly, Fly, Fly!
I would fly, 'cause you could go anywhere really quickly, no chance of getting run over 'cause you wouldn't need to cross roads (no planes in sky where I live so no chance of that either! )
... And if someone was really annoying you could fly above their head and drop stuff on them.
You cannot win, for to fight us is to give us power.
Invisibility, hell yes. Who needs money when you can just takel everything without anyone seeing you? People don't bother you and you can do whatever the hell you want and get away with it...
Ze titles yez...
When in doubt,
Smite.<SilverMane> I would trust BID with my life
<SilverMane> HEIL BID!
<Adrian-> BiD is Omnipotent; All Knowing, All Powerful!
<Scary_Troopers> I see you as an optimist, GT. : D
But what of the midgets!?

Ability to read minds, cause when u know what other people are thinking makes the things easy.
MEAT IS MURDER
Damn, this is kinda 'tuff. There are pros and cons to each. I think for me, I'd fly. I'm pretty good at guessing as to what another person is thinking or feeling without having to worry about it, and being invisible would only really give you the advantage for personal gain in negative ways. Flying would save me from my fear of heights, as I wouldn't have to worry about falling out of the roller coaster anymore, b/c I can fly to safety . lol Silly I know, but it'd just be fun... Now if you gave me the option of being able to turn into a dragon that could fly...that would win hands down any day .
"Can you put that in a memo and title it '***** I already know!'"
Church: "Ok, so we're agreed? You first!"
Sarge: "Get on with it, Griff."
Griff: "I'd just like everyone to know: that I suck."
Griff: "And that I'm a girl..."
Church: "What else?"
Griff: "And I like ribbons in my hair, and I want to kiss all the boys."
Sarge: "This has to be the best surrender of all time."
yea i agree with ppl above, being able to read minds and invisibility are just to easy to take advantage of. iv always wanted to soar like birds do and see they world from an angle iv never seen it before. plus save a hella lot fo money on gas
(when u fly in an airplane is too far away)
<insert witty remark here>
Depends on how you fly. Flying and looking like a human would probably attract too much attention (I prefer to stay quiet, not stick out like a sore thumb), although flying as a bird would prob. be cool. Reading minds would probably be useful in a relationship (you'd know what you're other half wanted, and if they were cheating on you you would know straight away) and if you decided to join military intelligence you could discover your target's plans without even breaking a sweat. And you could always just not read people's minds if you don't believe them to be hiding anything, or if you just wanted their thoughts to be their thoughts. While mind reading would be cool, having your mind read would sure as heck not be. I would like my thoughts to be private (although telecommunication [or is it telepathy?] would be fun, broadcasting only what you want to broadcast). Invisibility would lead to either a career as a thief or other variety of felon, or some sort of military stealth expert(the military find out someone's invisble they'll use them as if they were little more than a tool, albeit an extremely useful tool).
So, prob flying if you change form to do it, or otherwise mind reading.
Ravenwing: list made, now just to buy all the stuff on it (why do bikes have to be so expensive?)
