Ever consider that people with legitimate psychic powers know to never reveal it because nothing good comes from that?

Does this include being able to choose the horrid little strawberry creme filled chocolate when presented with a box of random chocolates? Because I have that one down.

I've worked over 20 years in customer service and have not yet killed anyone. If that does not qualify as a super power, I don't know what does

James Randi has been offering a million bucks for years for that.

Eyyy, I see where you're going with this!  It's like how Santa is too smart to let himself be caught on camera. He's able to see you when you're sleeping, or know when you're awake, after all, so obviously he can avoid ever being recorded!

No.
Santa is colluding with Vladimir Putin.

That's why Fox News reports on the War on Christmas. That's why NORAD tracks Santa's flight.

Imagine the amount of psychics' that never won several million dollars from the lotteries. Must have been waiting for the prize to be larger.

I am left-handed.  And I play the bagpipes.

When I am having a manic episode I can read minds.  Only works when everyone involved is stoned and I can only read what you are about to say.  If, in fact, I am mistaken about putting words in your mouth, I will simply insist you changed them out of spite.

anyway, I am psychic. I can accurately predict that all entrants will fail miserably.

I am also able to accurately predict the past. I predicted WWII 40 years after it happened!

Also, if such people existed, they'd have way easier ways to make way more money.

The psychics are the ones who have been winning the lotteries. Why do you think they don't bother with dinky payouts like this one?

I have ESPN.

Do I have to reveal it to everyone, or to one person?
Is that one person allowed to survive for long?

I have the ability to buy any stock immediately before it has a massive drop. It's uncanny. It's like a sixth sense. I don't even realize I'm doing it until the drop happens.

There are people with genuinely weird (and "powerful") genetic quirks. Dean Karnazes is one example, he doesn't produce lactic acidosis so he can literally run for days.

People with hyperthymesia can remember insane amounts of information, usually personal to them, but can forget things like what they wore on a specific day in 1975. However if you want to ask them some inane question about what they saw on the news it would not be uncommon for them to recount the entire news program in ridiculous detail, down to what the presenters were wearing.

A Connecticut family has "unbreakable" bones. Really they have something akin to the reverse of osteoporosis, as their bones get denser/stronger with use/age. Their bones are strong enough that, within the affected members of the family, they have nearly impossible to break bone structures.

I'm trying to remember the name of the guy/condition, but he could generate ridiculous strength (nearly at will) for very short periods of time, and his muscle fibers were extremely compact/dense. What some people can do under "stress situations" like lift a car, he could cause to happen at will. His adrenaline also spikeS during that time.

I wish I could find his name. He doesn't look like much, not some big muscle guy, but he can do ridiculous things in terms of raw strength. There's limits for him in terms of bone structure / bone density but, if you could combine his strength genetic abnormality with that family of dense bones, and the endurance of runner guy you'd have someone that would qualify as a legitimate superhero. He'd be ridiculously tough to hurt, unbelievably strong, and have utterly insane endurance.
