100 Superpowers Project

I don't often get into non-WoW content on this blog, but I had to share this.

A few months ago, I started the 100 Superpowers Project, something I've wanted to do since high school. Basically the concept is, 100 people can choose & receive any superpower they want. Any. The catch? No two power can be the same. If two people choose the same power, then neither of them get it.

Why this rule? Because it's sort of a social experiment. Do you go for the "cool but common" superpower, like flight or time travel? Or do you assume that others will pick it? Or, do you go one step further and pick it because you assume everyone else will be afraid to?

Anyway, the project is finally finished! 100 Superpowers (actually 110, there were a rush of last-minute ones). There were some duplications - quite a few, actually. And some of the entries were quite surprising and creative! It's been very fun looking at the powers people came up with and imagining what their limitations are, and what you could do with said power if you were imaginative/creative, or teamed up with someone else and THEIR power, etc.

If you're curious what people chose, check out the link above. :)

    If you and I combined our joint TOAST POWER, we could create an infinite and clean source of energy. PERPETUAL TOAST MOTION!
