If you could, what kind of superpower would you choose?

I suppose many of us would like to have some superpowers making us even more special than what we are now. Do you want to be invisible, do you want to speak 500 languages fluently, what would you like to know? Be creative!!

    Apr 3 2013: Personally I believe that we already have superpowers.

    The theory of evolution tells us that we are a species of ape, yet we can do things that are far beyond the capabilities of our bodies. We can; lift great weights, fly, talk to people on the other side of the planet. We are super apes.

    As for what new super powers there are lots that I would choose: To travel through space, to live a healthy engaged life beyond one hundred.

    The great thing about being a super ape is that, if enough of us want something, we can make it happen. We can create new super powers.
