The only real superpower that 16 year old girls have is the ability to attract a guy like me.

Probably the color 'flesh.'

My superpower is being able to shiat in a bag. I can shiat anywhere, anytime. Just try and stop me.

aseras: I have tetrachromacy. I see colors most people cannot. I can see infrared up to 1080nm or so. Sunlight bothers me ( everything washes out ) and I can see in virtual darkness as long as there's a tiny tiny bit of light. LED lights and monitors have been a godsend. Fluorescent lights flicker like hell to me, and incandescent lights are too bright.

Now for the cool parts, I can see through any camouflage. Those guys in ghillie suits stand out like crazy to me. Bugs birds animals, can spot them easy. I'm an awesome hunter. I hunt with basset hounds and I'm known for being able to walk into the field and just kick rabbits that no one can see, before the dogs see them. They don't run they squat and hide unless you are right on top of them.


I suspect you are a half-elf, or have dwarven blood. Also, kicking rabbits is a dickish thing to do. You're supposed to tenderize them after you kill them.

Shostie: One of our editors at work is a synesthete. She's a particularly good editor because typos make the words the wrong color to her.


Or she is just using Microsoft Word.

For me, different foods have different tastes and when it's dark I can hardly see.
sometimes when I smell bacon it triggers a growling noise.

Lionel Mandrake: Bennie Crabtree: downstairs: Synesthesia is facinating to me.  I sort of have a very low-grade version of it.  Digits have colors in my mind.  Not words though.

I refuse to believe that it is a thing, since I can't imagine anyone NOT always having the experiences synaesthetics describe. Unless, absaically, synaesthesia is the absence of smells linked to sounds, so people ONLY get colours, and so on and suchlike.

I must have synesthesia...I could totally smell bullshiat when reading that.


i saw a troll typing while reading Mr Crabtree's post.

/must have a special form of synesthesia

"I have a special connection with colors," says Laura, a student at Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale. "It's my special superpower."

A superpower it may be, but it would make for a really boring comic book hero.
