Have you ever tried getting super powers?

It's funny, But when I was young, I wondered if I could get superpowers by exposing myself to a little bit of electric current... or low voltage... I actually did it occasionally with appliance power plugs and outlets and see if it would make me stronger. LOL! all I did, I think, was kill some nerve cells ;'pp I even wondered if I would survive being struck by lightning and then suddenly receive superpowers. Good thing I didn't try that Ben Franklin thing or something like that :'o

I would love to have super powers but i don't think I would be playing around with electricity to get it, I think you either have it or maybe train the large part of our brain they say none of us ever use...

I've never thought about brain power as a super power... but you having said that made me realize. Yeah, I really believe the brain is a powerful thing. Or the mind. :'p I've always believed that ESP is true, at least in some of us. My father believed in it too, and a lot of things that we (both my father and I) have predicted seem so extraordinary that they couldn't have been just coincidences. Yeah, I'm a big fan of brain power. Not just in prescience (knowing events before they take place) or some other thing, but in others. Of course, there are hoaxes -- one of the of which is Uri Geller -- but there are a lot of seemingly genuine ones. Also this reminded me of Richard Bandler's NLP (neurolinguistic programming). It's something in the realm of psychology. Check it out! =') Thanks ;')

add maybe the reason why I didn't wonder about brain power as a super power worthy of a comic book story is that it's... ordinary (can't think of a better term). Like it's not really super..? I don't know.

try to stimulate your brain cells instead. If we could use half of our brain cells, then definitely we will have some kind of super power, trust me. All of us have a hidden power, waiting to be unleashed. It's just how to unleash it.

LOL! I'm trying to imagine what you must've looked like in your "meditative state", trying to harness the universal resources to gain super powers... ;'DD must've looked pretty silly :'p No offense. I mean, could you try something worse than having yourself electrocuted (even just a bit) on your power outlets? That borders on sillyness and insanity, heheheh! ;'DDD
