Time for a new game!

This game has to do with superpowers. You are presented with a superpower that has oddly specific limitations, and you tell how you would use it. Then you bring up another superpower with very specific limitations.

So if you could teleport, but only exactly four yards in any direction, how would you use such a superpower? Only thing I can think of is teleporting through a bank wall to rob the vault.

Or be teleporting out of the steel vault in the county jail after you’ve been brought in on the charges of bank robbery. Haha

But how would they prove it? The vault wasn't even opened!

The question is how would YOU use this oddly specific superpower?

And then what oddly specific superpower will you come up with for somebody else to think of a use for?

What if you could read a woman's mind, but still didn't know what she was meant?

I'm a woman, so I guess I would understand what's in that mind of hers.

My oddly specific superpower: What would you do if you had the power to delete any CC post (including posts made by other members and moderators) that is 5 years or older once every 3 days, 16 hours and 48 minutes?

I'd delete all the ones of people talking about you being too young, kinda like jailbait stuff. I thought it was rude and uncalled for.

The ability of fixin ones makeup and hair, not to mention outfit in two seconds flat every.single.morning lol.

I’d be stinking rich in no time. lolol.

I can imagine the commercials...

”Jenny’s Stay in your Car Total Makeover”

Here’s another one: You’re presented with the ability of making people say out loud what they are thinking. How would you use that superpower?

I would become a prosecuting attorney and get people to confess to crimes on the witness stand. (Sorry, my grandmother watches a lot of Matlock and Perry Mason.)


What if you were telekinetic (able to move stuff with your mind) but the only things you could move with your mind were dairy products?

Become the best milkmaid out there.

What if you could shoot fire out of your hands at will, but only when in your house?

I’d take up the vacant Cinderella position and teach Lady Tremaine a thing or two about handwork.

What if you could just say a magic word (which I cannot say lol), and the person you said it to had to tell you if said person ever had a crush on you.

That would make a high school reunion a little more awkward than it is already.

Your power is to understand binary language, but you can only process it at one-tenth its normal speed (Lynx, "get a job a Microsoft" is the obvious answer, so you need to come up with something better!).

And join the Dark Side? Heaven forbid! However I would be the best FOSS contributor that has ever been.

What would you do with the ability to directly access computers with your mind, but only computers smartphone size or smaller?

That would make the smartphones not so smart🧐 long as you’re talking about my mind😛, but I reckon such an ability would come in handy whenever I had to make sure certain members of my family remembered what to do next whenever making groceries lol.

What would you do with the ability to convince the lawmakers in your state to get whatever law through?

Not being American, I'm not in a state... but many current lawmakers are in the state of delusion. Can we get them to outlaw ignorance of common sense... among lawmakers?

You have the ability to be invisible, but only when naked... guess you'll only be using this superpower in warmer seasons.

You have super strength, but only in your thumbs.

if someone 4 yards from me drop something fragile, I can teleport to catch it

that's to indicate another possibility of using such power

or, teleport into a elevator to catch it if you are too late, or if a car drive by, that can work as if you are being "hitch-hiked" in a way
