Speak Your Mind: You’re Super
Regardless of what you think about his politics, President Obama is kind of a cool guy. Recently, in an interview for an Albuquerque radio station, Obama was asked what superpower he would like to possess. A lesser geek would just trot out the old standbys: invisibility or flight. But not Obama. He chose…the ability to speak any language.
Respect. That’s pretty baller, especially considering his day job.
I’m not sure what superpower I’d choose. I’d probably choose something helpful in my daily life. I think I would be too skittish to fly. I don’t think invisibility sounds very good, either. I like to eavesdrop as much as the next person, but some things I don’t want to know. I might choose the ability to control time. Or super speed. Or super genius intellect. Or the ability to regenerate á la Doctor Who.
What superpower would you choose? If you could choose, what factors would go into making your decision? Would you use your new powers for good or evil?
