    Superpowers!

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Aled James Taylor, Dec 15, 2016.

    I have a superpower!
    I can now insert USB plugs into USB sockets on the first of second attempt (rather than the normal fourth or fifth attempt).
    Does anyone else have this superpower or is it just me?
    Perhaps you have a different superpower (something other people normally can't do). Do tell.

    I get this. I usually start screaming like a monkey on the seventh attempt and then proceed to throwing bananas at the computer screen while mashing at the keyboard in a beastly furor. A similar process is involved during my writing.

    Can you walk barefoot on Lego? Can you cook fried rice without it turning into a sticky mess? There must be some unusual abilities amongst the members here.

    It takes you how long to insert a USB drive? :eek:
    Unusual abilities? I don`t know, I`m a polymath but that`s not unusual. Can`t do anything really odd that I can think of. I have never tried to walk barefoot on lego, who would have enough lego to do this?
    Um, I`ll have to have a think about this......

    Knowing the meaning of the word 'polymath' is probably unusual (I had to look it up). It's surprising how little Lego it takes to stop a barefooted person in their tracks. One brick is often sufficient.

    I can eat 2 Cliff Bars (each of which is supposed to be a full meal for a high-intensity outdoorsman) and a bowl of oatmeal for lunch (on a day where I haven't exercised yet) and I can still be hungry

    Hmm, I`ll have to take your word for that, I was always a Meccano kind of boy when I was younger. I do know of some amazing objects people have made out of Lego.

    I have no idea what a Cliff Bar is and since it is 8:25 in the morning and I haven`t yet had my breakfast I really can`t be bothered to look it up. But nonetheless impressive!

    And I`m still stumped as to odd abilities, maybe when I`ve had my breakfast.

    Does it matter?
    I have really, really bad smelling farts that it drives the bad people crazy and they fight each other...while running away from me.
    Is that a power?

    I have the uncanny ability to get drunk when I drink alcohol. Though impaired, I imagine my judgments and strengths to be 10 times what they normally are.

    I have the ability to tell the truth unfettered by such trivial considerations as tact or common sense

    I have two abilities, the first is to be surprisingly stealthy, despite being over six foot tall. The second is that anything I bake will come out lopsided.

    So that also includes some kind of prophetic ability?

    I sometimes reach for the phone before it starts ringing! So my wife says anyway, I swear I hear it.

    A friend of mine cooked rice like that, whenever I asked, he refused to answer. After some experimentation I realized that if you pour half a drop of olive oil (or some other cooking oil) into the saucepan and stirred it around before cooking, the rice wouldn't stick. Now I shock others with this arcane art.
    I never googled it, that would be cheating.

    I have the knowledge of how to turn a person into a very broken person.
    How about the ability to enjoy doing research as long as it is not for an assignment.
    Can also eat whatever I want and not gain hardly anything. :p

    I`ve got a "Hmm" on that last part, simultaneously scratching my chin. If you put on no weight at all it would be an interesting power, probably get women from all over the world seeking your help.

    It is simple. High metabolism, and about a half an hour or more of playing the drums with a double pedal. :p
    Good for cardio and coordination. Also not eating too much junk. :p

    I have farts that smell like onions. Several times I've tooted silently and someone with me says, "What's that smell? It smells delicious." Their face when I tell them it's my toot: :ohno::blech::dead:

    My superpower is to make farts smell delicious.
