Brilliance

March 26, 2007

Today at work, the conversation of bored geeks turned to a time-honored classic: What superpower would you want to have?

I will not bore you with the choices we made, but I want to mention a beautifully philosophical consideration that one of my coworkers raised.

“Hm… do I want to be a pervert, or do I want to travel?”

Think about it.

    This is what’s known as a false dichotomy.

    My superpower (super fast – so fast that time seems to stands still) is one I have longed for for 35 years now.

    Mine would be getting my wife to agree with me on anything…
