I would totally love to be able to borrow other people's talents from them. Just to sing like Katy Perry for a day, or play the guitar like John Mayer, or be able to swim as fast as Phelps at a swim team meet. That would be RAD.

The ability to correctly eyeball temperature. For example: I'm making caramel, waiting for the sugar-water mixture to reach the desired consistency so it doesn't turn into candy DOOM. My super power allows me to pull it off without having to depend on those new-fangled thermometers. Also works for meat. And my students. (I would never get the flu again!)

I want Cormac McCarthy's superpower: to write a best-selling, Pulitzer-Prize-winning novel in only three weeks!

My husband and I were watching The Matrix last night and we got to the part where Neo is getting all of his lessons (I know Kung Fu!), and I went "THAT'S the superpower I want! To be able to learn and master any skill in seconds."

There were some really good ones mentioned, but I'd have to go with the ability to manipulate probability fields. In other words, I want to control the outcome, no matter how improbable. The odds of winning the lottery are 1 in 7 million? No problem. The odds of lightning striking...the guy next to me. Zap. :)
