I'm on the final season of 4400, which whilst it isn't the best TV show in the world it is keeping me entertained enough to continue watching it. I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't watched it, so I'll keep this question simple.

 

If you were offered an injection that meant you had a 50/50 chance of dying within 24 hours and in pain or developing a super power (but not knowing what the super power would be until it develops) would you do it?

 

As a little extra and to encourage discussion, what super power would you like?

No. All super heroes are shit wankers. Even this couple on Wife Swap USA the other afternoon who dressed as super heroes were shit wankers. If it's a choice between death or being a bit shit, then I'm not taking that choice and happily living in the box room at my mothers thank you very much.

Indeed the high risk of death is far too big for a vague superpower.

I've thought about this some more. It would be easy for a partner to find in the dark if he or she fancies climbing on as a surprise. I'll see what Mrs Small thinks.

 

What if a distress signal were needed? Or your nemesis is a light-sensitive nob-grabber (Professor Mole-eyes Todgertouch)?

Depends what type of superpower I'd get. Fuck risking your life just to end up with something gay like the ability to breathe underwater. If you offered something like being able to fly or invisibility*, I'd seriously consider it.

 

* The thought of being able to follow around people I don't like all day, hitting them, and pulling their kegs down in busy places really appeals to me. People who use their powers for good are no fun.
