The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Out of sight, out of reach

Jane Galt asks:

If you could choose the power to fly or the power of invisibility, which would you choose and why?

I remember this very question from an episode of Lois and Clark, to which they responded just about the way you'd think they would. And as of this writing, Ms. Galt's commenters are split fairly evenly on the issue.

As the keeper of this silly thing, I of course throw in my lot with the unseen ones.

Invisibility. Definitely. Think what fun you could have. :-)

I'd rather fly. Makes travel a lot cheaper. I think I'd be too inclined to use my powers of invisibility for evil.

But you're so good at evil. :)

I'd rather fly. Invisibility would be wasted on someone who is constantly talking.

Fly high enough and fast enough -- and only at night -- nobody can see you anyway.
