    I’m pretty good at judging sizes/measurments, very good spacial awareness bordering on mental illness, i once bet my old boss i could make a key for his premises high security lock from just looking at the key once, which i did and it worked first time.

    Any of you lot got any mild superpowers of any note?

    does ‘falling off bicycles in defiance of all logic that says I should have stayed on’ count?

    My superpowered bullshit detector is beeping πŸ™‚

    Given the tolerances involved with a key, I’d suggest your actual superpower is more likely to be that you’re incredibly lucky at guessing

    I seem to have a 6th sense when canoeing when a capsize is imminent.
    There is a video of me on the web somewhere, the customers make two paddle strokes towards moving out the eddy, and I paddle forward out of the opposite eddy, stating to cameraman that they are about to swim….10seconds later, they do, and I am already halfway out into the river to rescue them … 8)

    Was it one of these kinds of keys?

    I hate to break it to you, but I don’t think they’re high security jobbies.

    Oh. I thought you meant, like, Putin’s been at the ganja or something.

    If you havn’t got any, it’s ok to just say no.

    I can teletransport. Only over relatively short distances though, and in highly specific instances. One moment I can be sat on a bike, the next rolling in the dirt / in a pile of nettles or brambles, with no discernible (to me) reason why or how.

    I can predict the future in my dreams. Really.
    I dream about something one night, then the next day a related event occurs.
    Pointless, but intriguing.

    I could give examples, but other people’s dreams are bloody boring aren’t they.

    I go down hills on my road bike pretty quick. πŸ™‚

    But that’s more a consequence of having more than your average cyclist’s mass, I fear. πŸ™

    56.8mph, is the quickest Strava’s clocked me at. Stitch that! πŸ˜€

    I can hear when the 0 LED is flashing on our washing machine, to say it’s finished.

    That’s not a very useful superpower, I’ll admit.

    by the power of thought I can make my cars indicators work at the correct times
    (*well a brain impulse works my hand and it certainly appears that the vast majority of people are lacking this power )

    I can sense when there is a police car nearby. Many times I have suddenly decided to slow down, drive more carefully etc only to see a plod a few minutes later.

    How mild are we going here? Sometimes I can remember numbers quite well but often the order isn’t quite right

    Really good with knowing where I am usually. I can almost always walk around a place aimlessly and still know the right way back or retrace my steps.

    When I was younger I could seem to effectively disappear in the presence of attractive laydees. That was a bit rubbish.

    I am Volumeman, due to my incredible ability to judge on sight exactly which bowl or Tupperware wotsit is exactly the right size to hold the leftover chilli/curry/whatever. Mrs Nettles is often in awe at my awesome power.

    I can ejaculate in my sleep.

    I can diffuse incredibly tense situations by not really realising they’re happening and bumbling on merrily.

    I walked into the middle of an armed robbery at a corner shop once and tried to by a twix, for some reason the robber panicked and ran off. I got the twix for free.

    I can estimate the weight of a banana with an accuracy of better than 5% by looking at it.

    I also have a magic shed which can reduce a perfectly good bike to a broken wreck over night.

    as an ex-toker-of-the-heavenly-bud I can sniff out a spliff on the go from hundreds of metres

    I do that thing where you spin/flick a screw from your fingers and it lands standing up on its point spinning like a top.

    And I can hear bats’ squeaks.

    I don’t bruise, that is I don’t go all funny colours when I bash myself! For instance, a couple of years ago I fell 3′ off a wall on to a 6″ round tree stump and broke a rib, big red graze, but no bruise.
    Not very useful just a bit odd.

    According to some one on here a while ago, my very presence causes flooding.

    Really though just call me Fabric off cut girl. The amazing ability to store random bits of fabric that will apparently magic themselves into a quilt or bunting

    I’m reasonably good at telling when my wife has turned the heating up a bit, but I do think that’s more of a general bloke thing than a superpower.

    I’m also good at getting things off high shelves, but at 6′ 5″, that’s hardly surprising.

    Due to the high doses of anti-histamines I’m currently taking I’m immune to stingy nettles, which is handy πŸ™‚

    How old are you? I used to be like that.. but I think it’s a superpower that dwindles with age. πŸ™

    I have super accurate torque-hands that allow me to tighten up any bike bolt to the specified torque.

    Well nearly, anyway.

    I can genuinely hypnotise flies. As in hypnotised enough so I can squish them with the tip of my finger. Young flies seem to have inbuilt anti-hypnotic protection, but bigger flies like blue bottles don’t stand a chance.

    I wish my unique superpower was more useful but there you go.

    Mild we said.
    Canada would fit into that category.

    I have the ability to make it rain simply by washing the car or hanging out the washing.
