    Default Useless Superpowers

    Can anybody think of them?

    Like the ability to fly...so long as you're inside of an airplane or helicopter.

    Or x-ray vision...except your eyes project red laser that points to where you're looking.

    Abortion: The pregnant woman doesn't carry a toothbrush in her womb, nor a tumor. Science teaches that from the moment of conception, the new being has all the genetic code. It's impressive. It's not, therefore, a religious question but clearly a moral one, based on science.
    Homosexuals: Gay marriage is "an anthropological step backward. If there's a private union, then third parties and society aren't affected. But if they're granted marriage rights and can adopt, there could be children affected. Every person needs a masculine father and a feminine mother to help them settle their identity."
    Feminism: A philosophy of constant feminism doesn't give the woman the dignity she deserves. ... It runs the risk of becoming machismo in skirts.

    Immortality... that only works if you're in a coma/ in tremendous pain.
    Bitter is the wind tonight,
    it stirs up the white-waved sea.
    I do not fear the coursing of the Irish sea
    by the fierce warriors of Lothlind.
