    • Invisibility (with condition 1)
    • Flying (with condition 2)

This poll is closed to new votes


Recommended Posts

Member's pick for the poll this week, and the classic superpower question got the nod - flying or invisibility... However, as with a lot of these, I don't think it should be quite that simple. Life demands that a balance be paid (yes, I said Life, not wife - however, that is also true) and therefore so should these made-up poll scenarios. Right?... Well, we're going with that anyway... Thus... Conditions apply:

Condition 1. If you choose Invisibility, then you must consider that if you use your superpower to break the law (including any sort of invasion of privacy - you bunch of pervs) then you are guaranteed to rather violently crap yourself out in public at some random point afterwards, at which time your invisibility powers will fail you for 1 week. 

Condition 2. If you choose Flying, then there'll be a 1 in 10 chance that every time you land you will lose an inch... off your height. 

Other than that, same drill: read the question, vote on the poll, elaborate in the thread if you so desire. Voting participants go into the draw for an El Pres sampler! - Drawn next Wednesday (Aus local time).

All about 50/50...

50/50 is a weekly poll where we find out whether or not some serious bones of contention questions can be finally be buried or will instead remain above ground as a fleshy 50/50 debate... you know, such weighty issues as these...

If given no other option:

are you a Cohiba or Monte person? 

do you prefer Hunnicutt or Trapper in M*A*S*H? 

Connery or Moore as Bond?

Apple or PC?

Smooth or Crunchy peanut butter? 

do you prefer wearing men's or women's underwear?

Sacrificing chickens or virgins?

...that sort of standard fare. 

Vote in the poll and further bolster your standpoint in the thread below if you wish. Poll Votes are public and there's a couple of sticks up for grabs for participants. :party:

Also, PM me Polls that you'd like me to conduct on 50/50 and there'll be a prize for those we decide to use. :thumbsup:

I already have IBS and don’t feel like sitting in air traffic. Invisibility would be nice to sit in on things I’d otherwise not be able to sit in on. Secret meeting etc

the conditions are a great twist, makes the choice easy: invisibility.

that said i have no real desire to be invisible.  flying would be to occasionally give my feet a rest, but the height loss would be too much. i'm no basketball player.

Given the conditions attached, has to be invisability. I have no interest in being a flying midget. 

@MoeFOH Can hair loss be an option instead? Gonna have a bunch of Oompa Loompas floating around

I would absolutely have chosen flying - experiencing that is the dream. But the condition pushes me into invisibility, no question about it.

That's fine for a baldy like me. I'll take that! 

But no, the chance of shrinking is 1 in 10. I'd take that roll of the dice. A lot better than Russian Roulette.

I'd really prefer flying, but the condition kills it as an option - I'd have lost all my height before the end of the year, and I guess at that point I'm dead. Invisibility it is.

Besides, with flying trapeze I already have a 1 in 10 chance of losing an inch off my height every time I land.

@MoeFOH - Is a bit of thieving from the bad guys wanton gain, let's say your cartel of choice, still considered to be breaking the law?

Invisibility, I mean, does the Condition happen post completion? 

 

This is where it gets interesting... any breaking of the law counts, no matter how minor or who it's against. And the crappage can happen anytime after that... so it could happen while you're still doing said offence, then the powers are instantly gone for a week... So you're revealed and in the poo, literally and figuratively!

With flying, you could potentially use the power and never suffer the condition. Or if you're generously or freakishly tall it might be a godsend.
