    Ditto. I think some people were just born with that innate ability to keep a crowd riveted. I wish I had it.

    Here here. I can write pseudo-code that is logically sound but I wish I could get it to work without a programmer.

    Foreign Language - I seem to lack the aptitude, although I haven't made a serious attempt at it yet!

    Ha - where do I begin? Not just at work but life in general. Are they doing "brain transplants" yet?

    Not sure if this counts as a "skill" but it is definitely the super power I would pick if I were given a choice!

    One of my friends can strike up a conversation with literally anybody. I wish I had that skill. Also, the power to create a 36 hour day. 😛

    Not sure that following the pack is wise. Especially when you probably feel that they are wrong. 🙂

    Universal Translation, C-3P0 style, to effortlessly create custom-tailored vernacular for every given person in every given situation. Shared understanding would happen much more quickly, as could meaningful action.

    Examples of words that mean 1,000+ different things to 1,000 different people:

    Risk

    Enabler

    Critical

    Precision

    Expensive

    Collaborative

    Urgent

    Opportunity

    I'd like to add interesting to the list. I hate the world because what was a word with good connotation is used sarcastically enough or in the Chinese proverb sense that I just stare flummoxed when I hear it.

    Ha...I hate the "world" too...anybody remember Arte Johnson from Laugh In...v-e-r-y i-n-t-e-r-e-s-t-i-n-g 🙂

    This week that is a little to much of a spotlight on my id.

    Normally I'm just a sloppy typist.

    Ah...I was wondering if it was intentional or just a "Freudian slip"

    The ability to see a bit into the future - maybe two weeks - although that would be a mixed blessing, no doubt.

    Bewitched!! Need I say more?

    Everything done with a wiggle of my nose! And yes I would use it! LOL

    Ok mind reader would be nice too.

    If I had those two powers, I would have so much time to do everything else I want to do, like learn all forms of Spanish!
