I would like the power to temporarily freeze time and essentially while everyone is frozen I can move freely. lol so then I can just stop time take a nap whenever I'm tired and nobody will give me any shit about because they'll be frozen :D
Or maybe be to indestructible in the way that if you would shoot me the bullet would bounce off or if you were to stab me with knife it would break, and I could only die by natural causes and such. lol could be fun XD
I don't believe the idea that when you get older that time continually seems like it goes fasted and faster. If that were the case, you wouldn't be able to communicate with anyone over 60. It would just plateau after a while.
Also, you wouldn't live forever unless you wanted to. "The Will to Live" is a documented occurrence in science. After a while you would literally surrender your mind.
Where did I ever say anything about time going faster? I said you'll go senile, which is true. Your brain only has so much storage, and after that is gone, it will either have to delete old memories or just turn you into a vegetable.
As for will to live, it doesn't really apply if you have a healthy body. It only applies to people who are trying to fight off a life threatening disease or injury.
Regarding the first part, sorry, I was referring to an article on Cracked. Totally took for granted that maybe not everyone has read it. Derp.
As for the second, it doesn't necessarily have to apply to that. There are a lot of instances where people who work their entire lives and are fit and healthy who, when they finally decide to quit their jobs, they die a week later.
Cracked is not a legitimate source of scientific information. It's good for a laugh, but you should never believe what you read there. There are no scientific studies that I can find linking a loss of a will to live to keeling over for no apparent reason. If there were, you'd see emo teens dropping dead left and right.
No, no, no. I meant that at a certain point you would actually become so bored/tired of/loss of interest/be unable to stand it anymore, that you would no longer be able to take it. Similar to what you were saying about becoming senile.
I know Cracked is just for laughs, but in the other super powers they brought up some decent arguments. I could tear the list up and down, I just wanted to adress the one.*
*side not: You should read their article "Why A Zombie Apocalypse Would Fail, Quickly"
If you vacated your body, it's true your cells would be invulnerable, but I'd imagine they'd biodegrade and live forever in different forms, seeing as how it's you mind that giver your body the purpose to move and such.
Right Wing Texan conspiracy theorist who is actually probably the most well know and respected among the conspiracy theorist movement. Google his convo with lead singer for the Smashig Pumpkins, Billy Corgan. Corgan brings up some awesome points and the interview is really interesting.
I would rather have 5 specific "powers". I would have telekinesis, the ability to summon music, the ability to phase through solid objects, and flight that I would get through two wings that have a 9 foot wingspan with the edge feathers having a very thin, strong, and sharp diamond coating. Oh, and being able to sing death metal perfectly.
