So a while back, I read this Reddit post that asked, which of the following super powers would you pick?
A.You can freeze time for an hour every day. If you don’t use all of the hour that day you can use it the next day and so on until the end of each week. If you didn’t use it until Saturday you would have 7 hours.
B.Live inside a minecraft-esque world. You can travel to this world by opening any door and thinking about it. Every day spent in here is one hour in the real world. For 3 years in this world you can edit any aspect of it according to your desires. Create trees that grow tasty beverages or fill it with replica cities and cars. Your options are limitless. The only rules are that you can take nothing out of this world and can only invite 10 different people in. After the three years you can no longer change the world.
C.The power to travel into any tv show/movie/game you want and interact with the characters scenery like it were a real world. When you come out everything will be back to normal. If you die while in the tv you will be fine.
D.A “ring of knowledge” That gives you the ability to absorb all knowledge from any book you touch for 3 years. After this period of time the ring breaks but you keep all knowledge.
E.A block of chocolate containing 26 pieces that will make you immortal for 20 years. You’re invincible but don’t contain any sort of super strength.
F.You can rewind time an hour every day to redo any situation you want. Same rules as A.
G.A van that can travel anywhere in the known universe It’s always stocked with 5 types of munchies and 5 types of drinks and a Fear and loathing style suitcase full of drugs. It fits 7 people and always has a protective field a couple yards around it that lets you breathe and not be crushed by scary space rays.
H.Just by looking at a photo you can make it into a reality for 3 hours. You can never do the same exact items twice. It works with people as well. If you bring out a food and eat it within those 3 hours it won’t just disappear out of your stomach.
For me, the ring of knowledge is the most appealing. I’ve always pushed myself to learn new things, and I’m excited by the acquisition of knowledge and information. I could easily spend three years delving deep into thousands of book, wholly in the pursuit of knowledge for knowledge sake, testing my patience as I forgo utilizing the knowledge until my time was up.
The other options were fairly interesting to me, especially extending my life, and potentially the lives of my family or friends, or jumping into the reality of some of my favourite television shows, but at the end of the day, those things wouldn’t potentially make me as happy as being able to continue to expand my knowledge base and continue learning a bit about everything.
What would you pick and why?
