You get to choose one superpower. Pick one of these, and explain your choice:
- the ability to speak and understand any language
- the ability to travel through time
- the ability to make any two people agree with each other
Hmmm, this is a tough one. If I chose the ability to speak and understand any language then I can get my points across to anyone and everyone, without having to use a book or a interpreter. That would be really awesome if I had to travel to a lot of places and interact with a lot of people who can’t speak any of the 3 languages that I do.
But getting any two people to agree with each other – man that could solve a lot of problems. Two nations about to go to war; get the head of states of both nations into a room with me and I’ll work my magic. War averted and peace rules. You want to avoid a divorce – come to me. What about business negotiations? Come to me. Religious disputes? Bring them holy shits to me and I will make them agree that there are no gods! Any kind of problem, bring them to me!
But the best would be the ability to travel through time. That would be awesome. Go back in time and find Hitler when he was just a baby and drown that bastard. Bin Laden, Saddam, St. Francis, Stalin – heck I’d go further back and kill or abduct and confine some of your prophets so that some of these religions wouldn’t have been formed. Mass murders, rapists, suicide bombers, criminals etc etc. That would be awesome. Can I form a team and bring a few people with me to get all the work done? We could end up helping the human race a lot and making humanity more peaceful & progressive.
