What would u want and why?

This is an interesting poser. But I would want to be immortal. Can you imagine growing to 150 years old and not still living? You will be a hagard old man with no energy to do the things you'd like to do. I would like to have the power of prediction. Imagine if I can predict accurately at the start of each share trading session which shares will go up or down, and by how much, I will surely be very successful in the shares market!

haha...I don't strive to be rich. I'll be happy if I have enough. The stock market thing was for illustration purpose only. If I can predict things that may happen and have the power to change things before they do(especially if these predictions are not good), then I will harness that power to do good.

To keep the population (particularly India and China) under control to ensure proper development and environmental balance.

If this is not the special power which you will not sanction to me, then I would request for a power where the super nations under the guise of terrorism should not bulldoze other smaller nations and all countries are equal and only United Nations should have the super powers. The veto powers at UN should be removed.

If I had one special power, it would be the ability to instil love behind the eyes of every human being on this planet. Reason why? - because I believe love is the solution to all the problems in the world, from leaders who've forgotten who put them there in the first place, to wars that are happening ever more frequently, from domestic violence, to child abuse, to racism, to sexism to all the ism's you can think of.

that power would be the power to make people wishes come true like your wish to be immortal and granted my own wishes.... that would be fine for me.

You mean like a genie? I'd like that too, especially if I can grant people's wishes if these wishes are deserving, and I know I'd make someone happy in the process.

if i had to choose one thing it would have to always be happy, that way i would never feel any kind of pain ever AGAIN.... it would stop me from winging all the time and just make the worls (seem to me) a happier place :-)
