Which super power is for you?
1. Pick one;
Flying // Invisibility
Invisibility; 28 votes, 47%
Flying; 32 votes, 53%
In defense of invisibility;
Invisibility allows you to perform tasks without anyone ever knowing you did them.
It would be fun to listen in on other people’s conversations without them knowing I am there
because with this power i can go anywhere and no can see me and i can go to see my best friend and always help her at home without knowing to her parents
really hard question. As long as I could choose when I wanted to be invisible I would go with that because it would be so much more useful than flight.
Possibilty is limitless when no body can see you, flying is currently possible with aeroaplane/parachute
You can prank your friends and they will completely freak out!
If you spent your day flying around someone would lock you up for studying.
With Invisibility no need to fly. One would be free to use any plane to fly without freaking anyone out.!
Because it cant see where ever it is
In the event of any sort of attack you can imagine, I’d rather be able to not be found than make a quick escape with flying. Also would be a good super power to have for a spy or infiltration job.
I am always wants to hide myself among others rather than flying
Fear of heights and all kinds of mischief you could get into being invisible.
I want to know secrets
Because I would be able to go anywhere without being seen.
i would love to be able to spy on people and hear what they really think of me.
I can go anywhere and I can do lot of things with this power.
Because if I were invisible I could do just about anything I wanted to.
So many more possibilities when you’re invisible than flying.
I think flying is overrated and by being invisible, I can do so many things that I usually cannot.
can watch people who really cheats me.
Being realistic, I could run into so many things if I flew (bugs, other flying animals, etc.). Being invisible would let me do more stealthier things. I would have more fun with being invisible than flying.
Invisibility would give you much more benefit than flying. Anything that flying could possibly be used for like a quick escape, free air travel, or getting really close to a bird is something you could do with invisibility. The mobsters you ticked off won’t know you’re still there when you disappear and nobody’s going to ask an invisible person to present their plane ticket. Also, no hunters or soldiers will shoot you out of the sky because what the hell is that flying?! Nobody will even know you’re around if you’re invisible, much less give you grief for your unnatural usage of physics.
If you could turn invisible, you could creep around and learn all sorts of things. You could be the worlds greatest spy.
because no one see my power
So I can live in peace without people bothering me or wondering why I’m standing in the women’s locker room.
No one can harm.
so i can mess with people
There are many that would see flying as a threatening power—or they’d try to use me for their own purposes. With cameras everywhere, nowadays, someone would find out about me too, so there would go my life. It’s harder to catch/detect you if they can’t see you and, in the age of surveillance, invisibility could be MUCH more useful.
In defense of flying;
The idea of being able to travel anywhere I want appeals to me more.
I CAN GO ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD
I hate cars
Flying is more adventurous and goes beyond human experience. It can be used more for personal satisfaction than just human interaction.
have you ever watched a bird?
I like to fly
I like birds very much, so I need to fly with birds
no more driving/walking/etc. Plus, it’s cooler :p
Its more adventurous
i love flying
Travel easier and faster than others. Independence away from the madness of life.
i like to see the whole world
easier to get where you are going
I would just love the feeling. Invisibility would be fun occasionally but I can’t imagine a situation where flying wouldn’t be awesom
As it makes me to see everything from the top view.
I like being mobile. I envy the birds.
i love to fly in the air
I am so intresting to flying as like that birds because it’s free to flying in sky.
No more car insurance.
Because I could travel all over the world.
Because mobility is always better than just invisibility.
I want to fly like bird
its very nice experience.
Flying is a lot cooler than invisibility. Travel superpowers always win out.
flying is a wonderful thing.
Because I would like to travel to a lot of places and be super quick in that.
I hate driving.
I can travel anywhere like a bird. So, Flying is superpower.
Because I can get where I want to without traffic.

the knight’s tour; placing the knight
i’m starting a new online project tomorrow, a 64 day residency on amazon’s mechanical turk. the project has its own tumblr since you guys are used to seeing pretty illustrations and not so much the web work. but follow if you’re interested, and i’ll probably be re-blogging the best of them.
the mechanical turk was a supposed automaton constructed in the late 18th century. the turk was carved of wood, dressed in mystic robes and seated at a low table. he was capable of playing (and winning) at chess, as well as completing the puzzle game ‘the knight’s tour’, in which a knight occupies every square of a chess board exactly once, visiting all 64 squares. the table and turk contained many doors, in which an audience may see the complicated clockwork that drove the automaton.
in the 1820s, the turk was exposed as a hoax. inside the table was a tiny hidden box in which a diminutive chess master may hide and control the man above. destroyed by fire in 1854, the mechanical turk has re-entered contemporary lexicon with the launching of amazon’s website of the same name. the crowdsourcing internet marketplace marries human workers with tasks that computers should, but cannot understand. tasks are generally short, and pay small sums that begin at $.01.
the knight’s tour is a 64 day residency on amazon’s mechanical turk.
man so i got some gold leaf..
