The official "What special power would you like to have" thread
Imagine that you are living your everyday life and suddenly you feel you are being magically infused by an unknown spell. later during that day something happens to you and you realize you now have a special power.
What would that be and why!?(the "I want to have the power of having every single powers" crap doesnt apply here, dont be a smartass.
I, for sure, would choose mind control. The possibilities with that power would be endless... convincing everyone Im the best, convincing people to give me all their money, their home, convincing jessica alba to have some fun time together..

The power to mess with peoples heads. Make them hallucinate whatever I want them to. Think of all you can do with it, you turn around and see your family massacred, you holding a knife and covered in blood, then all of a sudden *poof* it's all gone, you're eating dinner with your family, you relax a little then *poof* it was a dream and you wake up in your bed, now you're weirded out then *poof* you're plummeting towards the earth from hundreds of feet in the air. After a while you don't know what's real and what's fake, you lose touch with reality, not sure if what you're feeling is real or not, not sure if the next moment is gonna disappear revealing all of the feelings and experiences you had to be fake, maybe the past few years of your life have been fake, maybe it never really existed, maybe you don't exist, you become paranoid, confused and lose your mind. You could trap people inside their minds. Good thing I don't have this power haha

I don't think I'd care for flying....I think the bugs in my mouth, dried out eyes, and cold temperature would turn me off of that.
I don't think I'd care for invisibility...what would I do? Probably something illegal, honestly. I don't think I need that temptation.
Any kind of fireballs or light beams or electricity would certainly be cool, but I'd definitely be a villain and you'd all be dead and I like you guys enough to spare you that. Hey, don't blame me...absolute power corrupts absolutely! It'd be way too easy to get bored and just start wasting people randomly. Ever play Infamous or Prototype? Yeah....exactly.
Power to heal? Now that is something to think about....I could heal anyone of disease! I'd actually probably try to be fairly heroic with this because there are a lot of suffering people in the world. Unfortunately, I think once the word got out, the fame would be a little overwhelming and people would be tearing at me to heal them. So I'd probably pass on this....I'd never get any sleep.
I'd probably just have to say reading minds, but not the versions that have been presented in fiction where it's like a million voices screaming at you at once. I'd like to to just target someone and know what they are thinking about me. I think it'd be nice to see the liars out there and then call them out on it on the spot. Invasive? Maybe, but that's what you get for being a liar.

Abstract Realization: The ability to make thoughts real and alter reality.
Intuitive Aptitude: The ability to learn anything easily and to understand complex systems just by looking at them. Understand people, situations, and the universe perfectly.
"Astronomy offers an aesthetic indulgence not duplicated in any other field. This is not an academic or hypothetical attraction and should require no apologies, for the beauty to be found in the skies has been universally appreciated for unrecorded centuries."

I would like to be able to selectively forget things, so I can experience things anew. Then I could watch a great movie, read an engrossing book, or hear a beautiful piece of music, and have it still be as fresh as the very first time I experienced it.
Plus, I could watch Star Wars again and actually be surprised to learn that Darth Vader is Luke's father.

Telekinesis, in a big way. I could be the freaking greatest warehouse worker ever. Working at General Electric "Hey pezzle, we need to get this PWR Reactor vessel to Indian Point, and our crane just died..." in steps me, with my super power of awesomeness.
