Post Terrible super powers
This game is simple. you try to come up with a superpower as or more useless/inconvenient than what the last person posted.

like this:

Poster 1: The ability to fly north (no other direction)
Poster 2: The ability to teleport, but only 1 ft

-----------------


The ability to walk on air, but not get down.

The ability to levitate. But only as high as you can jump, and you can't move in any direction.

It's levitation, not flight.

The inability to feel pain. Have fun starving to death because you don't know you need to eat. Or breaking your legs and not knowing anythings wrong.

Hey, I just had an idea to change this game up a bit, to make it a bit more involved rather than just posting jokes. What if it's changed so that User1 posts a superpower, then User2 states it's flaws, and then posts the new power.
Exa:
User1: The power of flight
User2: But you can only fly north.
Telekinesis.

Buster, what do you think?

Kind of seems redundant, in my eyes, as it would be pretty much what "Corrupt a Wish" already is.

The power to breathe underwater, but unable to swim.
