Mundane Super Powers


  • Pitcrew

    I'm bored and procrastinating, so... topic time!

    What's your mundane super power(s)?

    Mine are:

    • Can insert the USB correctly on the first try 90% of the time
    • Can fold a fitted sheet

    ETA, because I'm in a gif-y mood today:

  • @Auspice I don't burn out.


  • Pitcrew

    He really doesn't. It's weird and a little terrifying.

    You know, old testament terror. What do they call that? Awe.

    My mundane superpower is the ability to find things. I am really good at finding things. (spoiler, the secret is to look under things)



  • I can begin on a topic, descend into a subtopic eight times, and pull back out of it in order to provide context for my final result, comment etc.


  • Pitcrew

    I look amazing in hats.
    Like, any hat.
    Including sombreros, fezes, and those baseball hats with beer can holders on either side of the cap.

    There is a 90% chance that I can walk into a room where a tv is on and guess what's playing within 3-5 seconds - even if I've never seen it before. This is also tied into the fact that I am a walking IMDB.

    My parking karma is also strong.

    My mundane power is to over exaggerate the importance of non important things.

    I mean, I FOUND A SPOON! That's awesome right?


  • Pitcrew

    I can pick good restaurants anywhere I go, or even in places I've never been



    • Font of useless knowledge.
    • Stubborn refusal to give up.
    • Ability to pull off green rainbow hair without obvious roots for 3+ months.
    • Pattern recognition like whoa.
    • Living cartoon facial expressions/wild-takes.
    • The ability to plant a foot, straight out at the side, at shoulder-height against a wall without stretching, despite otherwise being a complete chair-potato.
    • ADD brainstorming-fu.

    Weaknesses:

    • Inability to tl;dr for shit.
    • Height on par with the average female wolfblooded char on any given WoD MUX. (Read: 5ft, sometimes under at the end of any given day.) The way to put a stop to my evil schemes: put everything I need on a high shelf.

    Social Crucible. I can either find the change or bring change to pretty much any situation I find myself in. Fire is almost never involved. Almost.

    I'm a pretty awesome cook and usually don't need recipes/can figure out how to recreate a taste profile most of the time on the first try.

    Though I suck at pie crusts. I think baking in general requires more attention to detail/science so that's my weakness!

    This is why I prefer baking to cooking. I'm terrible at just throwing things together. But give me a complicated baking recipe and I am in happy-land. Yes I will get out that kitchen scale. You bet I will monitor the temperature and humidity for that dough. ;)

    I can piss off anyone. Anyone.

    Apparently my superpower is being immune to his superpower. I think it's cute when he's being all grrface. <3

    I ain't tried to piss you off, and I remember quite a few times where you got all face-rubby in staff chat because of some policy, reaction, or whatever, that I decided off-hand and you disagreed with. Imagine if I had aimed at really digging that in. Just 'cuz I've never pissed you off, doesn't mean I can't. Also, ironically, it's the people who are most neutral about me that are the hardest to piss off. The people that really dislike me and the people who really like me are the easiest, by far, if I'm in a bad, petty mood, and want to lash out.

    I've been a lot better about it in the past couple years, though.

    I blame my therapist. That bitch is too good at her job.



  • @Coin

    Yeah, that's true, I did have a few facepalm moments BUT!. The face-rubbing got balanced by all the snickering I did when you did something I cheered.

    You were the bestest boss.
