What will you do if you have the ability to make yourself invisible?

June 21, 2007 4:38am CST
It sounds weird for this topic. I still remember having read the novel by an English writer, as to the name I forgot. The novel seems to be The Invisible Man. I was plunged into the plot of the story and still love it. Often I recall the main character in the novel, who is a chemistry scientist. I felt so sorry for his death, though he died finally for those things that were not supposed to be done. My question is--if you can make yourself invisible, what do you wish to be or to do? Different ideas are welcome.

Wow, how nice is to be unseen in this world! Like wind, so free and so swift in movement. We can hang around in whatever places we like and there are no environmental barriers. Oh, I can simply walk in luxurious theater to watch my favorite super stars. I can have a nap when listening to the monotonous and tedious lecture. Lastly I can fool those mischievous friends lol.

Wow, you are so romantic as to make me feel lost in your romance--like free and swift wind in movement. The feeling is so good to hang around wherever you like without any environmental barriers. Oh, you must be a very romantic person to be with. You are so sweet, friend. Enjoy being unseen. lol.

To be unseen is really wonderful. Could you imagine if an abuser should posses such a magic. The culprit would be able to create fantastic amount of troubles. So I hope this power would not fall into the hands of persons with malicious motives. If this should happen I'm afraid this power would create romantic killers instead lol.

Oh, yeah. It would be terrible once the magic power of being invisible were to fall into the hands of the evil ones. No worry. Let's take care of this power without letting the evils possess it. Thanks for your reminder. lol

Thanks very much for your participation in my discussion. I love your reply very much. It made me have a good laugh over it. You are so cute a girl. I can't help laughing for the fun you brought me. Yeah, PICK UP the three thieves who stole your three mobile phones. With this magic power, I am sure that you will be able to catch them and send them to jail. I believe that you will be able to PICK THEM UP like the way you pick up something easy and light instead of catching them. That is really cool. May you be invisible some day for that. Smile.

Of course not. I don't mean so. I mean that it would be funny if you could disappear. To my understanding, to disappear just means to be invisible. To be invisible, you seem to have the power to do things that you want to do. Since you can disappear, you can also make yourself visible when you are tired of being invisible. Lol. Greetings to my dear friend, kim.

Well william. There's another paradox like this in live. I have a friend who is totally a nerd and he is not into all kinds of social things. So he doesn't have much friend except the one who study with him. I think you can call him "invisible" also. It's like a metaphor you know. :) I kinda feel pity on him. I invited him several times to join us to hang out but yet he refused it all the time. Is he really enjoy that kind of life he has? I don't know about him pretty much. But I'm sure he once experience something worst that he doesn't want to socialize and he kept himself from others. So, everywhere he go, he is just like an invisible man. Nobody greeted him and yet he was totally ignored. I don't want to be invisible. I prefer to be visible for others. Being invisible is fun at the beginning. You can trick people, you can do things that you afraid to do before, anything... But it's not fun after a few days. Remember the movie "Hollowman"? I think that's why the scientist gone mad and can't accept what happened to him. Everyone of us needs others to console us, to be friend, to have a place to share your story and to be listened. If you become invisible, how will you do that? Hehehe.... that's my thought. A bit different eh....

Hey, my dear friend. I can see this case you have given. This friend of yours is really lacking of social activities. It is no good for him not to socialize with people around him. I am in favor of this type of invisibility at all. Yes, I have watched this movie and I don't think that it is a good idea for the hero in this movie to be always invisible. It is ok to be invisible when you have the desire for some fun. lol. Thanks for your response, r_yuen.

Hi william. You are right about him. His lacking of social activity is a major problem here. I don't know what else to do besides trying to make friends with him. I just don't want him to end up like the actor of Hollowman in the movie. What to do?

Since he has such a character that he is not fond of social activities at all, it would be very difficult to make him change much unless he wants to. The best and most effective way is for himself to change his mind in the latent consciousness, which motivates him to change himself by participating in more activities and developing his wide interests in social activities. I mean that the inside factors are far more important than the outside factors.

Hi william. There's only one thing that I would do if I can make myself invisible. I'd go to a place where are lots and lots of people and...I'll start singing! I'm not really a bad singer because I have a passable singing voice. But I'm not sure though if I can pass the American Idol criteria.LOL It's always been my frustration to try singing in a public place. Like at the malls where you can find a machine and with just one token, you can begin singing your lungs out. But just one look at the people and the audience I might have, I start backing out. So, if being invisible is possible, I'll do that. That way, no one can point at me and see my face. I'll have the chance to sing in a public place without anyone knowing that I was the one making all that ruckus!!!^_^

Smiling while reading your response. I think that you don't have to hide from the audience since you are not a bad singer. Just be brave enough to stand on the platform to sing with your heart. For sure you will win lots of claps from your audience. It is really inspiring for this. Hope some day I will be able to listen to your beautiful song and I would like to be your fan. Thanks for your response, jcj.

I would rob the peter and give it to paul. Meaning to say, I would like to transfer the part of rich to the poor and make the level of living equal in most respects. This is my childhood dream and If I get the power to be invisible, I would like to do it.

If I can make myself invisible I would be a superhero. I would go around the city and look for bad people and punish them. I would make sure that I catch all villains in their secret dens so I can turn them up for the police.

Hey, andrejuly. It is so nice to have your response. There is a British novel and was later moved to a film about someone who has the ability to show invisible. The novel is entiled with "The Invisible Man", I guess? I read this novel when I was at college and love it as always. It was just out of this novel that made me want to post this discussion. If you want to know more about how to make yourself invisible, please read this novel, which will teach you a lot. Lol.

In the mean time, I would try to help those poor people who are in needs by taking the money and valuble sustances from the rich. Hahaha...This is a weird topic, but sounds interesting!

Hello dear Madonal. It would be reall so exciting to be able to travel around the world for free if we could have that ability to be invisible to do the traveling that we like.

Hey Bro, Truthfully, there are people who could make themselves invisible. You could do that also but that is called Black Magic and is often frowned upon in many countries. If I do have the ability to be invisible, I would go to every soccer matches I place wagers on and ensure I win. Heh Heh I should be a millionaire in no time

In subject if I have an ability to be invisible,what will I do? It is I have to think more to answer it well.I can join in the Police to help them in their duty.I dont want to make money illigally.So the ability will not use to cheating or stealing.
