Would you rather?
« on: August 08, 2017, 08:38:10 PM »
I know the classic game is to present two bad alternatives, like drink 20 mayonase "shakes" or cut your pinkey off, but I saw an ad on facebook that said "would you rather read minds? Or fly?"

And obviously, the utility choice is mind reading, but I yelled "Fly!" Like the ad could hear me.

So how bout you? Not the mayonase shake one, I'm not that evil?

Btw, ron swanson weighed in on this. He said that if people could fly, they would consider it excercise, and wouldn't bother.

I'm guessing air pressure/temp would make this less amazing, but superpower wise, it would be second to magic healing.

I always wanted to be able to breath underwater ( a la Aquaman, without the talking to fish thing * ) even to the point of dreaming about it. I guess I also dreamt about flying too but that was more along the lines of Hitchhiker's Guide not Superman.

And for giggles cuz it was the next image in my imgur bank.

I live in southern california, so I've been hit by a wave or two leaving me wanting that power.

Hell, one of my most common nightmares is a drag out, where no matter how hard I try, something pulls  me out.

In a recent nightmare, I punched my fists into a wall, dragging myself and emilio estivez out of a current that included great white sharks.

In fact,I'll drag that out into a thread, thank you very much.

I'd rather fly.  If the current President's tweets indicate anything about his conscious mind, having access to the recesses of his unconscious might just be too grim an experience.

Only option is to fly, reading minds could only lead to a complicated and depressing life.
