Daily Prompt: A Bird, a Plane, You!

Today’s daily prompt is called A Bird, a Plane, You! and it asks;

You get to choose one superpower. Pick one of these, and explain your choice:

  • the ability to speak and understand any language

  • the ability to travel through time

  • the ability to make any two people agree with each other

Well this is an easy one.

I wouldn’t pick the ability to speak and understand any language. Everyone can speak English to some degree and if they can’t, well clearly they have nothing interesting to say. That is a joke, but it still seems like a waste of a superpower because, with a bit of time and effort, you can learn another language.

I wouldn’t pick the ability to make any two people agree with each other because it would lead to the end of war and that would put a lot of people out of a job. Weapons companies hire a lot of people, they do a lot of research and development, and not everything they do is purely about death. Think about V2 rockets which led to launching space rockets.

Also disagreement is healthy. What is with this modern crap where everyone has to agree? It is bullshit. It is unhealthy. It stifles ideas and debates. People should be free to disagree and argue. Sod the mollycoddling.

Once again I find myself having to pick something related to time travel. Just think of all the wonderful ways I could re-write history.

Next!
