I thought we needed a thread like this.

For those of you with more rings in your trunk, let's say you could answer the following hypothetical when you were a kid.

Would you go for the power of invisibility if you couldn't control it until you were 75 years old? Let's say you were guaranteed to live to 100, so that's 25 years of invisible old person antics. Meanwhile, in the first 75 years it comes and goes whenever it feels like it.

Ok this sounds like a stoner question (not that I have any experience in such matters).

Maybe I’m missing the point but if I get to live to 100 I don’t care if I randomly turn purple. So hell yes I take 75 years of random invisibility for 25 more of controlled invisibility.

Do my clothes turn invisible too, or is that the crap shoot? Let's say I'm young and *poof* I'm invisible except for my clothes, so I take them off, run over to the girls locker room, and everything's going good, then *unpoof* I'm visible again. Only naked. And embarrassed.

Let's say your underwear goes invisible, but that's all.

I would only use the power to look at naked girls. I'd hope that same drive is there when I'm 75.

Remember that movie "Hollow Man" with Kevin Bacon. Smart scientist creates the power to render himself invisible. What's he do besides go crazy? Sneaks into a woman's house to watch her undress.

Yeah, that's almost every guy right there.

Charles, I'd like to ponder this at some length, rather than give you a hasty answer at this time.

Would this mean I had to trade in my current super powers?

OK, there's the eating, the super-spelling, the Botcasting, multiple identities, plus the obvious charisma and mental persuasion (see Star Wars avatars) ...

It only works at a distance, though. Thank goodness for the internet, eh?

Yeah, when we met up at the state park, I kept beaming commands at you to jump in the lake, but they apparently didn't work.

Foiled again.

If you mean have no control over my life for the best 75% and then get control for the worst 25% then the answer is "NO".

Personally I would like to be invisible when CV is sitting in JP's chair for an hourly session. \:\)
