What's your superpower?

Out with friends last night, the movie Superman sparked a conversation about superpowers, particularly the superpowers we already have. Ben's would be "large amounts of useless trivia." Mine? The ability to cut through bull and artifice with a single stroke -- my symbolic weapon a samurai sword.

Oh -- and a conversation topic for all these (potentially tiresome) SuperMan conversations we'll be having over the next month: Flying or Invisibility, which would you choose? (Courtesy of a 5 year old This American Life episode.)

Way back before Flickr, Caterina Fake wrote a superpower story that led to a terrific participatory site: What's Your Superpower?.

My superpower is Omnioblivience.
