The topic of superpowers is timeless (the ability to move through time would be cool). Where there is a great power, there is both a good and bad use of that power. The Ring of Gyges, granting the ability to turn invisible, provoked such a discussion between Socrates and Glaucon. Could you resist the temptation to satisfy your desires if you had the ability to be evil without consequence or punishment?

know what other people are thinking.
As with any group project, a few rules are needed. There will be a topic. As far as the length of the list, I have given this some thought. A list of One, is not a list. Two to a list is too harsh: only first and last place. The minimum entries shall be Three, and Three it shall be. For the sake of brevity, Five will be the max.
Here is my list:
1) The power of instant transport (see above reference to the Italy death march)
2) The power of perfect espresso (this is probably a power that I will tire of quickly, but right now, in Waco, it seems very important)
3) The power to speak all languages (this would have prevented our being lost in Italy and the hostility that arose with our bus driver)
