My mysterious power is to be taken seriously when I'm joking, and be thought to be joking when I'm serious.

I am yet to find an actual use for this that isn't either illegal or immoral.

Like there's anything wrong with illegal or imoral :confused:

6' 8"! That's tall!

I'd go for black fishnets and a black velvet cape with red satin lining. Not verry superhero but nice noone the less.

Catchphrase: Were tall and were here. Get over it!

Whoo-hooo! And some figure hugging satin/lycra too!



We're Tall, we're here, get over it!

When I tried to do that, I got slapped. Twice. :blush:

I can make my enemies writhe in agony for hours and make them beg for mercy, for I am:

Physics Lecture Man!

My mysterious power appears to be the ability to go into a book shop to ask a question and spend £62 without even thinking about it.

My costume would be black leather, of course, with a black leather coat. Think Blade, only white with boobs.:D

Catchphrase? Do as I say or I'll give you a really nasty paper cut.:eek!!!!:

My special power, telling people what button they need to press on their computer and listening as they press totally the wrong button that's nothing like the one I said.

My costume would by a tie that came between my mouth and the phone, muffling any instruction,

my catchphrase would be: "No, not THAT button, the other one":rolleyes:

Not wimpy at all Helen, I assure you.

And I know because I've just gotten a rather nasty papercut.

Well, I felt I had to compensate for the rather feeble catchphrase:D
But paper cuts are nasty things (I'm recovering from one just now and can't cut onions or go near a chilli):eek!!!!:

Pictures!

We want to see pictures!

Purely for identification purposes you understand.

No nefarious reasons at all. No no no.

I'll be M.E. Woman. My costume will be a comfy nighty and a mattress strapped to my back, and my catchphrase "Christ I'm knackered!" :p

I have decided to be AnswerWoman. Every one and their brother in our office comes to me for answers about the most non-job-related things. Not related to my job anyway. (Why is it so cold in here? Who do I talk to if my lunch was stolen from the fridge? Why are the parking spots on the south side of the building blocked off?)

:( Unfortunately I generally KNOW the answer so they just keep coming back.

My costume will be an Ally McBeal style grey flannel business suit (micro mini with a nice tailored jacket) and my catchphrase: "How the f**k should I know?" Wrong doers (people who actually come to me with a job-related question) will be given wrong answers. Or right answers so they actually do some work. I haven't decided.

Lets move a little further! :blush:

My superpower is that within minutes of meeting someone new I can psychically detect what it is they are most passionate about and completely slag it off in front of them. Examples

Bloke: So what kind of music are you into?
Me: Oh anything really, just not jazz, I hate jazz, what a racket etc etc trails into silence...
Bloke: Silence
Me: Er

New roomate: So what sports are you into?
Me: Oh this and that sport, but I have tried quite a few things, except netball, what kind of a pointless jessie "sport" is that etc etc trails into silence...
New roomate: Silence
Me: Er

You get the picture.

I think it could be a vrey useful superpower. People could employ me at parties to insult their mothers-in-law ;)

Hang on: we're moving away from the bustier/thong/PVC issues here.

Carrie-Anne Moss or Kate Beckinsale?

such a hard choice...Carrie-Ann Moss. She's got a corset on :blissed:

Oh Yea:

I was thinking more cat suit...

We're here, we're tall. Get over it!

Evil dooers include: people who make short leged trousers and look at you strangly when you tell them you have a 34" leg, people who design long distance busses and only alow enough room for people with tiny legs...

One of each, please.

I've decided I have a new power. The ability to pick the seat next to the noisiest seat on a train. (It's a mechanical thing, not noisy occupants.)

And, apparrently, I also have the mystic ability to be given hotels in different counties to the one I'm trying to book into.

On occasions I'm tempted to do it deliberately..:D
