Ok, this is a game me and a buddy play at work when we're bored. Come up with the most pointless super power you can think of. It usually results in a lot of laughs, and one-ups after one-ups.

So for example:

The ability to read minds but only in a language you can't understand.

The ability to breathe underwater but only on land.

The ability to turn into Edward Scissorhands but only when you're wrapping Christmas presents.

Let's hear your pointless superpower ATS.

The ability to communicate with others you are close to telepathically yet not realizing you have the ability because you have been conditioned not to believe you have it.

Nice one.

I will counter with the ability to kill at will, but only those you truly love.

Let's keep it up!

I like it!

How about the ability to read anyone's emotions, but as soon as you do, you have to punch them in the face.

How about the ability to stop time, but every time you did you age 5 years.

This reminds me of a pen and paper role playing game called Tales from the Floating Vagabond. The character that a person plays has useless abilities just like these. For example: The ability to dodge bullets at close range and only close range, not getting any wound penalties, as long as nobody sees you getting first aid, among others. It's hilarious.

My ability would be to woo any woman I choose, but only as long as I had a paper bag over my head.

The ability to talk to all animals but you can't understand their responses.

The ability to fly but it also activates a crippling fear of heights.

The ability to read any language, but the strain is too much for your eyes so you become blind when you use it.

The ability to consume any substance, even radioactive wastes, metals & rocks. But every "strange" thing you eat gives you 5 days of painful diarrhea.

The ability to travel through time, but you forget everything you knew when you arrive at the new place. That includes forgetting your native language & why you chose that time period in the first place.

My friends and I used to play this in high school.

For me it's "power-word barf".

The power to make people barf at will.

The ability to freeze time in a very localised manner, around your body and that's it. This means that when you come out of the effect, you have not moved at all, but the planet has spun away from you. If you freeze yourself for a few seconds, you fall hundreds of feet. If you freeze yourself for a week, you watch the planet fall away from you slowly as your body explosively decompresses.

The ability to teleport anywhere but your clothes don't come with you.

The ability to have your thoughts come true - but once it's thought then it happens. No taking anything back.

Nice, lol, I already have that superpower.

How about the ability to eat anything and never gain weight, but the thought of food makes you vomit.
