I’m talking about a world where you could walk up to a cashier or the servers behind the super powers buffet and place your order. One day it might be “I’ll have an entrée of unlimited physical strength, with a side of x-ray vision and a dash of 100 times the average person’s hearing.”
Then, the next day, you could try something completely different. Or, if you preferred, return for more of the same.
The possibilities would be mind-boggling and would never get old because you could always mix and match. You know, change things around a bit whenever you like.
Or not. It would be entirely up to you.
After careful thought, I’ve decided my preferred super powers du jour would be the ability to turn house dust and the hair my dog has shed on my carpet into $100 bills. Just to be clear, I’m talking about an exchange rate of one $100 bill per gram of dust and/or dog hair.
In a matter of mere minutes my wealth would be immeasurable and sure to make both Bill Gates and Warren Buffett feel downright broke.
Of course, I’d also need the super power to balance my checkbook at a single glance and the ability to organize an entire room full of stacked $100 bills with a single puff of breath.
HOW ABOUT YOU, WHAT ARE SOME OF THE SUPER POWERS YOU’D LIKE TO HAVE? JUST REMEMBER THERE ARE NO LIMITS. FOR OUR PURPOSES HERE YOU COULD PICK WHATEVER YOU WANT, IN ANY COMBINATION.
