    Yay! That means more pressies for me! Do you have any idea what's Kelly saying in that scene? I mean it's: ''R u tryna say summing.... and then?
    :dontknow: I'm from up north and I had to listen a couple of times. I think it's, "What, are trying to say summit now(?), then yeah."

    But then there are some practicalities with that.

    So how fast are you going up there? Were you assuming you'd get super speed to go along with your flight? OK. Have you seen what a bird can do to a jet engine at high speed? Imagine what it does to your face. Yeah, that's why anything going faster than a hang glider has a windshield up there.

    But if instead just you're flying at about the same speed you run, then, well, you're like that old couple that drives 25 on the interstate. The crime will be long over by the time your slow ass gets there.

    But let's say you did get some kind of speed boost, and a bird-proof face. Do you know where you're going? Up there in the wild blue yonder, without landmarks, how do you expect to navigate? Do you have an exact map of the entire country in your head? Sure, you can find the Empire State building if that's where the bad guys are, but what if the crime is happening in some house way the **** out in the middle of nowhere, amid a tangle of looping country roads?

    OK, so you get some kind of radar installed in your head. But now you have the atmosphere to deal with. Wind constantly blowing particles into your eyes and the freezing cold. Granted, you'd have to go up pretty high to get that effect, but you're not going to be a moron and fly where people can see you.

    Oh, by the way, you might want to be careful what you wear. Not only is it cold enough to freeze your balls, but lower temperatures mean you're more of a conductor of electricity. It's like when you're walking home on a winter day, come in and shock the **** out of whatever you touch. Multiply that by say, a million. If you're wearing anything like wool--though we don't know what the Hell kind of superhero would wear wool anyway--you're going to be a human capacitor. If you happen to be a supervillain, we suggest working on your Palpatine voice so you can make one Hell of an entrance when you land.

    sorry ta burst ya bubble love but

    :creep:
    This should not be a problem :giggle:

    I don't think i'd be very good at fighting crime anyway, i scare easy

    I meant a gentle / floating type of flying, like a butterfly or a fairy, not like a jumbo jet. I wouldn't be using my flying to get around the world, just sort of hover around the place when i feel like it

    Anyway, you didn't say how you are gunna get these powers :holmes:

    You gotta be on the ball if you want me as a date :ahee:

    If only it was the same IRL :getmecoat:
    I wouldn't say I'm on the ball, I was just the only one online at the time :p:
    :console: I know the feeling. Don't worry there'll be someone out there for you...at least, that's what people keep telling me :sigh:

    I've just realised that the majority of the people on this thread are boys, which is wierd because hardly any of my guy friends watch misifts, but all of my girl friends do

    I always thought of it as kind of a girly show, because of the focus on romance / relationships, but perhaps i was wrong...

    We only watch it so we can be a part of groups such as this, and pry on the girls...imagine our disappointment when we found how few girls there actually were here!
