    Default Pick a Super Power II: Useful but not Powerful

    This is the sequel to the first Pick a Superpower poll, however this time the powers are things that would be useful for real world living, rather than abilities that would make you some kind of powerful killing machine. The five powers are this:

    1. Can instantly tell what disease someone has just by looking at them.
    2. Cannot be hurt by gravity (falling from any height will not hurt/kill you)
    3.Traffic will immediately stop when you walk onto a road.
    4. Can instantly know someone's phone number by looking at them
    5.Swimming will never make you tired
    Rise again, rise again - though your heart it be broken
    And life about to end
    No matter what you've lost, be it a home, a love, a friend.
    Like the Mary Ellen Carter, rise again.

    "Swimming will never make you tried" but do you still burn calories? The exorcise potential would be insane.

    "Can instantly tell what disease someone has just by looking at them" would only be good if people believed you.

    The Third choice is that all cars immediately grind to a halt the second you walk onto a road.

    I went for the first one. Even if you try to warn someone and they don't believe you it'd still be nice to be able to warn the people close to you if something comes up.

    I'm surprised no one has gone for the phone number one lol you could probably make good money selling that info to people

    Clarify #2 please. Will it work for any gravity-related stuff?

    It's like I said, no fall from any height can hurt you. You can jump off a mountain and you would be fine.

    1. depends what kind of information, i mean most people have a range of health problem ranging from diabetes to simple headache...ability to heal/cure them outright would be more impactful
    2. rather limited superpower.. I suppose it can simply negate the 'force' from the fall... not sure what i would use that for though...
    3. I would likely get arrested for public nuisance for this.. since it also stops other traffic unrelated to me.
    4. i'm not stalker.. but i choose this coz.. why not?
    5. very nice super power... if only i have somewhere i can swim nearby.. would be great for lifeguard though

    2 for me. I have a fear of heights which impairs my construction work. It would be nice just knowing that if I fell nothing would happen. I'm betting it would also make for some great viral videos jumping from the world's highest structures, planes, helicopters and such. Popular utubers make pretty good money now, too.
