Eighty-first Question

If you were given the chance to instantly 'master' any one skill, talent, or ability in the world, what would you choose?

A few examples: You could instantly be a concert pianist (or other musical talents), know how to fly an airplane, speak a foreign language fluently, paint or draw masterpieces, excel to world-class athletic ability in a sport, etc.

    Teleport myself places, traffic makes me want to kill people. Hey you didn't say it had to be REAL.

    That's a GREAT answer Ritmeyer! No, of course it doesn't have to be 'real'.... Afterall, how real is instantly learning a skill? LOL

    I would say acting or singing, because I am a total spotlight junkie and the money wouldn't hurt.

    ritmeyer took my answer, so my next choice would be the gift of correctly predicting lottery numbers before the drawings. Cha-ching!
    The ability to self-teleport would be the most awesome thing I could imagine!!!

    Ditto that ritmeyer. I talk about teleporting all the time because I can not stand traffic either. But I would also like to be able to master the ability to share my feelings with the one I love. Be able to talk to her and feel comfortable.

    SEX...it'd be all about sex for me. Now there's some insight you maybe didn't want.

    *wink*

    This is tough because there are so many. I think I'm with Danielle. I would love to be able to cook.

    Kris's idea isn't half bad either, but I think the fun of it is in the practicing so I wouldn't just want to snap my fingers and be a pro.

    Singer/Songwriter. Or hilariously funny.

    I would love to be a comedien, part of me knows I'm funny... The other (larger) part of me knows I'm not comedien-worthy funny.

    And that sucks.

    Actually it would be to play the piano...

    Lame I know but I've always regreted that I quit when I was young.

    (Yes mom you were right *sigh*)

    I would love to be an environmental scientist. I want to be able to solve the green house effect, lack of oil, lack of all energy, lack of living space, pollution...

    hmmmm the list it is so long ...

    get the Gorgeous Straight Woman to fall in love with me totally and forever ...

    languages, definitely

    teleportation, absolutely

    the ability to read the stockmarket, completely infallibly and thus become a megabillionaire

    I would like to sing well, or at least a lot better than I do. If I had a second wish, I'd like to be left-handed.

    I'll settle for mastering myself. Until I have the skill to control myself, my irrational thought processess and annoying indecision, I cant master anything else!!

    without a doubt I would be a master potterer.
    I have always longed to throw pots and fire them in a home kiln the size of a small room.

    Singing. I do it anyway, but I get worse every day.

    Or flying. Not a plane, just magically by myself.

    Heh-heh.

    The Force. :)

    Fluency of several languages, definitely. Also that teleportation thing is pretty cool...
