Well as I am quite nosy, I would LOVE to be invisible.

Fly. I can be invisible without being invisible, if you know what I mean.

I already have a plane, so invisibility it is.

That’s a no-brainer. Flying, definitely! Besides, it would be difficult to fall asleep with transparent eyelids.

Definitely fly. Just get up and go whenever you wanted to.

definitely invisibility, because I think it’s less reasonable to expect technology to be able to reproduce it as a superpower. Flight, on the other hand, has been explored much more deeply by engineers and could be a gadget-based ability. It’s a bit like asking whether one would rather be superman or batman (or, for Star Wars fans, a powerful Jedi knight or an awesome bounty hunter like Boba Fett).

I was going to say fly, but zarnold completely changed my mind. Nice.

invisibility all the way!! Can you imagine all of the embarassing situations you could avoid? And all the silly pranks you dreamed of pulling as a child could finally be made into a reality without consequences!! Ooo! You could also make endless trips to the buffet table without being given those “Whoah. Isn’t that like the 27th time she’s been up here??!!” looks, lol. But would the invisibility include the things you touched, or just you? Hmmmm…..

Haha, I was just asking my friends this. We got into a great debate over the physics involved in each situation.

Anyhow, hypothetically: invisibility. Besides, if you could fly I am sure the military would shoot you down.

Bsilver's avatar

wow, this one’s rather difficult…

While I, like eenerweiner, am quite nosy, the ability to be invisible can be advantageous, but at the same time, the idea of just up and wooshing into the sky is pretty appealing…

Can I choose both?

PupnTaco's avatar

Invisible, as long as I could control it.

jmbm's avatar

Invisible. If I wanted to fly I could just get on the plane without paying and no one would know I was there.

TheHaight's avatar

Thats too easy! I’d love to have the ability to fly!

flameboi's avatar

fly, just imagine the money you’ll save on petrol!

I want it all. Flight. With a cloaking device.
