Okay I’ve thought about this quite a lot actually. After debating world needs v. personal calling and desires, i.e., what I would like to do with my life versus what the world needs, etc. I have to say regarding what superpower I would like to have if I could have any superpower I wanted. I think my answer would be:
the ability to speed read super-fast with 100% retention in any language.
Can you imagine that? Not only could I read everything in English – theology, philosophy, history would be my area of concentration (not that I’d really have to concentrate much because I could speed read). But I would be able to speed read Chinese literature and philosophy. I’d be able to rock some French and German philosophers and theologians in their native language – not to mention Greek and Hebrew. This would be the greatest superpower I could imagine. Except maybe the power to cure cancer with only by speaking the person’s name. That’s a good one… or the ability to cleanse that air and environment from all pollution telepathically. That could do some good…
Personally I thought the Samuel L. Jackson idea was pretty strong – not that I get in that many arguments.
Enough already. What would your superpower be?
Peace, Love, & Friday Funny!
