I wished I had the ability to transform into anything! You get more possibilities that way. For example, turning into a fish would allow me to stay underwater forever. I'd be able to fly if I turned into a bird, though a dragon would be better as I could breathe fireballs at the enemy! :twisted: Quite handy for scaring off all those bloody yobs and chavs! :D

You could turn into a bottle of cheap cider and the Chav's would love you like a god. :)

My top three, in order of how bad I'd want them -

1. Invisibility. You could just have immense and never-ending fun with this. It's just a fact. You could kick the sh1t out of people that used to bully you, criminals and Jeremy Kyle and then when you were in a more relaxed (and even horny) mood, you could obviously just do what it was invented for!

2. Time travel. Technology, and future technology really interests me. So I'd love to time travel in to the distant future and see what tech/gadgets are like about 70+ years from now.

3. Teleportation. Come on, it beats public transport AND any other form of transport. Am guessing you wouldn't have to buy tickets either.

This is a recurrent topic among my bro and I and we've come to the conclusion that it's very unlikely as I'm sure there would be future travellers coming to see how things were hundreds of years ago in 2009.

I remember seeing on QI that there was a thought that making a time travel jump might be like making a telephone call - that is, you have to have the right apparatus at both ends. The fact that no such device exists yet could explain why we don't get visitors from the future.

Or maybe it's just impossible.

Invisibility for me too. Beating people up perhaps isn't so important, certainly robbing banks and Casinos would be. That is, of cause, between doing what it was invented for. :shock: 8) which means I would probably never rob a bank or casino. The novelty would never ever wear off.
