10 Super Powers That Would Actually Be Useful In Real Life

Every now and then I come across this oh so popular question: What super power would you have? The options are always pretty familiar: Flight, invisibility, mind reading, etc. I mean, honestly, how useful would those things really be? Flying is cool if you’re okay with freezing. Mind reading is fine if you don’t mind people hating on you. And invisibility probably isn’t as useful as it seems.

Now, if I was given some actual super powers that would benefit me in my everyday life, I’d be all about that. Screw flying. Here are 10 super powers that would actually be useful, for all of us.

1. Eat as much food as you want without getting sick

I would happily become a human garbage disposal.

 

2. Sleeping with eyes open

And know what’s going on around you! Useful for a quick cat nap in class or when  you’re super sleepy on the train and don’t want to miss your stop.

 

3. Texting on a touch screen phone without looking at the keys

Remember when all phones still had physical keys and we could text without looking at the keyboard just like we do on computers. I wish I could do that without typing unintentional keyboard smash.

 

4. Only being able to read someone’s mind if they’re having positive thoughts about you

This is why I’m hesitant to say I’d love to read people’s minds in general. I mean, I’m a nosy little brat but I don’t want to know if somebody thinks I’m annoying or something. No, positivity only, thanks!

 

5. Being able to take a compliment

Come on. Don’t act like you take compliments well.
6. Procrastinating without consequences

Okay, definitely living in a dream world with this one.

 

7. Destroying cat callers and street harassers in general.

8. Nice Guy™ Detector

Abort mission. Abort. Mission. We have a Nice Guy™ on our hands. Abort mission!

 

9. Putting on something and having it fit perfectly.

I think that next to world peace and ending hunger, this would easily make everyone on earth a lot happier.

 

10. Okay, and telekenisis which is a real super power and is is actually helpful

Come on now. Who wouldn’t want to just have a bottle of ketchup float towards them instead of, you know, using speech and manners to ask for it?

 

You know, this would all be pretty easy if we were witches. Can being a witch be a super power?
