    I would want to turn back time personally - considering all of the ****ty things I say sometimes that cause me to get into a lot of crap :sadnod:
    Oh man i feel bad ruining this one

    Flaw: 1.) you travel back in time and right the wrongs before they are committed. You change not only history but yourself because those things are what shaped you into the person you are today. Without doing those things it takes you even longer to reach this conclusion.
    This cycle continues and is never resolved.

    time control boom
    Flaw: 1.) if you go back you change the present. even just saying hello to someone insignificant or letting slip something from your future could change the past. Then you would return to an altered future with no knowledge of present day life etc.

    2.) if you go forwards you'll be tempted to change the present and again your very presence may inadvertently change how the course of events are supposed to happen - you could start wars, that were never meant to be but you wouldn't know because you're not from the future

    This is called the butterfly effect

    A crocodile has stupidly powerful jaws yet can carry it's babies in it's mouth without hurting them if needed.

    I wouldn't really have any need to go 500ft+

    I'd rather hear and be able to help by leaving a note somewhere for the police or hear someone being two faced and me know than not hear
    Flying Flaw: You'd probably still need a license in case you're not a good flyer. Flying so low would put you at the mercy of the national grid and birds. If a flock of geese can kill an a boeing engine they'd make mincemeat out of us.

    Super hearing Flaw: dog whistles hurt dog's ears because they have such good hearing. What would just temporarily cause pain such as walking by roadworks. It would work in much the same way your eyes do when someone pulls the curtain after sleep - really intense.

    You may hear something incriminating and be asked to stand trial for the prosecution. Without you there is no case!

    Superstrength Flaw: you'd do some damage to your property and other people while learning to use it. As well as this if you did get angry and could not control your anger, you could potentially KO someone from life!

    I already discredited super intelligence in another post in case you were wondering . but here it is again:
    Super intelligence flaw: because being clever isn't the only thing you need to pass exams - you need to learn the answer style, have legible handwriting, grammar, spelling. Intelligence does not necessarily mean you have the above.

    Also super intelligence, you can just become a self made millionaire. You don't necessarily have to do exams, you could create a new encryption and make millions

    3 magic balls.

    the first ball is like a pokeball, with LIMITLESS storage of things shrunk inside.
    Flaw: Depending on size of the ball: cricket to basketball size - you can't put large things inside
    Human size - you could get lost going in to retrieve something because as you said the space is infinite.

    3 magic balls.
    the second pauses/unpauses time when i squeeze it like a stressball, like bernard's watch.
    Flaw: You would age faster than everyone and if you kept doing this often enough you will have amassed a year extra to what everyone think you are. As well as this you wil be wasting something more precious than gold - your time.

    the third can teleport me anywhere i want when i twist the two halves.
    Flaw: 1.) the earth is not the same if you teleport from the top of a hill then where you teleport to you will arrive there at the same level (probably to your death) because the ground may be a fair distance.

    Same goes for if you are below ground level.

    2.) you could teleport and hurt someone or yourself

    3.) there's reasons you apply for visa's. You teleport to a country and are arrested. You teleport out of prison but you're now an international criminal because of this.

    i don't quite get you on this one, why wouldn't i teleport to a lower ground level from the top of this hypothetical hill? do you mean with the earth's revolutions ?

    The ability to control how hard your skin is- bulletproof at times
    Flaw: Your appendix bursts and you need major surgery! The doctors can't cut into you because your skin is indestructable. Oh and before you say i can turn it off you are in a coma. If you are in any situation where you need medical help and are unconscious an in bulletproof form you stand the risk of dying

    (Original post by H0PEL3SS)
    Molecular manipulation i.e. able to rearrange atoms.
    Flaw: You are a chef of life! which is fine. But what does every chef need - ingredients. So if you don't have pure carbon, oxygen or any other element for that sake you can't make anything. we are running out of fossil fuels so getting your hands on pure carbon is expensive these days. same randomly goes for helium. And yes you do need pure elements otherwise you are changing the laws of science.

    (Original post by H0PEL3SS)
    and human durability otherwise, all under your conscious control.
    Flaw: You can't die but you do age. you would watch all your friends and loved one pass on and are left knowing whenever you do make relationships they will all end the same way (DR Who)

    I am a curious person. But I have to rely on what other people tell me. This way I wouldn't even need to ask - because I'd just know.
