You want to be a super hero?
Published on September 10, 2006 By Draginol In Blogging

There's a lot of super powers to choose from.  Flight, super strength, invulnerability, super speed, invisibility.

But if you had to choose one? Which would it be?

Being invulernable would be kind of nice but on the other hand, you could get stuck in a bad situation.  That's where super strength would be nice.  But super strength would be problematic because you could really hurt yourself.

The more I think about it, the more I conclude that most powers need to come in pairs with invulernability being one of them.  Take flight.  How fun would flight really be in practice as bugs and other things start flying in your face or you accidentally hit a tree or telephone wire or something?

Invisibility wouldn't require another power but I'm not sure what good it would do.  Yea, you can spy on people. Meh.

There's plenty of other powers that I haven't listed. But if you could only choose one power, which would it be?

I think I already have the "super power" of invisibility.

I am quite big, but I always manage to be overlooked. Sometimes I walk right behind (or even in front of) a person and they ask other people if they know where I am. A few weeks ago I walked behind a group of fellow students (I was a student for 4 weeks) through the entire university building, to and from a location, and nobody noticed me.

Is that bad?
