    “What is this bullshit,” the bear asked. “Look, I just can’t serve alcohol to bears,” the bartender replied, “I don’t think I can even serve anything to bears.” “I CAN DRINK WHATEVER THE FUUUCKK I WANT LITTLE MAN,” the bear roared in its very bear-like voice, and it lobbed one of its paws into a side of the bartender’s face in a hit so strong that it isn’t related to the thread.

    One day during your morning exercise in the park, you blacked out. A few minutes later, you regain consciousness. Nothing seemed to be different except... there is a strange feeling within your chest.

    upload_2021-6-13_1-23-19.png

    - - -

    You feel as though you have suddenly obtained a kind of supernatural power.
    After looking around the area and seeing nobody in sight, you feel the urge to test your new power out. Your focus on this new sensation as you intuitively:

    1. dash straight into the park fence only to phase through it.
    You can consciously pass through walls and objects. (OR)
    2. look into the sky as your feet magically kick off from the ground.
    You now have the magical ability to fly, and can fly at high speeds. (OR)
    3. concentrate power into your fingertips before you release a bolt of lightning in the air.
    You now have the ability to generate and manipulate electricity.
    After the shock from discovering that you have obtained such an amazing power, you start to wonder.
    What should I do with this kind of power?
    You think about all the things you can do with this power when suddenly, multiple serious questions race through your mind.
    Should I keep it a secret? Can I tell anyone about this power?
    What happens if I go to the hospital and they find out about this?
    What happens if the government finds out about this?
    1. Which power out of the three would you want the most?

    2. Would you use the single power you chose, and what would you use it for?

    3. Who, if any, would you be willing to divulge your newest huge secret to?

    4. How scared would you be if someone finds out about your superpower?

    5. Would you still be willing to go to the hospital even if it meant you might be exposed?

    6. Would you trust the government to know about your powers?

    1. Lightning bolt cuz I'd be shocked, y'see.
    2. Play Zeus, smite people down calling it divine retribution.
    3. No one. The best kept secret is one that is never shared to begin with.
    4. Very, esp. if they are someone I am not willing to kill.
    5. No. A hospital room is just a shortcut to a lab room.
    6. No, I wouldn't trust politicians with anything.

    Electro kinesis. Trivial stuff like charging phones and reducing the electricity bill. No one probably. Not that scared, the world runs on electricity and controlling it basically means the fate of the human race or at least regressing in technology. Sure, I don't know how they would find out. Nah.

    If I was still in high school then maybe I would do many things, but now, I would just sleep.
    Enthusiasm and hope has been sucked out of me

    I want telekinesis to get things without getting out of the bed, maybe type my essays without getting out of bed. Oh and possibly flip books or scroll my phone(on the bed) without lifting my arms?

    Create an archnemesis out of a dog. Give him a fedora. And then start making supermachines with names that end in -inator.

    Honestly, I think that even the smallest revelation of a superpower would so easily be weaponized by governments. I wonder why it always feels as though it would go down that path. It probably has to do with how politics can latch onto practically anything or how there will always exist some kind of corruption or how this could get an edge over other nations, but I wonder if there is anything that seems like a better reason.

    1. Which power out of the three would you want the most?
    Electrokinesis.

    2. Would you use the single power you chose, and what would you use it for?
    Charge my phone battery and save on electricity bills.

    3. Who, if any, would you be willing to divulge your newest huge secret to?
    No one because I don't want to spend the rest of my life as a battery.

    4. How scared would you be if someone finds out about your superpower?
    Zap them.

    5. Would you still be willing to go to the hospital even if it meant you might be exposed?
    ... how would they find out?

    6. Would you trust the government to know about your powers?
    Nope. Have you seen my government? They still want to power everything with coal.

    1: phase through things
    2: I would program it to activate when I hit my toe (and if I get into a car accident or somebody tries to stab me)
    3: I would tell my parents and when I get one my spouse
    4: I have no clue, I've never had to keep that kind of secret before
    5: yeah. I need to go to the hospital. If they ever detect an anormality, well oddities happen. If they want to test it out, I would just let the waves pass through me so they wouldn't detect anything and give up.
    6: I don't know. Maybe, if I decide to work in the army of as a firefighter.

    You wouldn't know for sure whether they could find out or not, but you feel like there is a good chance that they could.
    The question about the hospital pertains to whether or not you would see a doctor or go to one if you had some other kind of illness, even if you have this superpower.
