Well, hovering 1/128th high will also allow you "walk" on water, only that you maybe wet more your shoes.

Additionally, if I'm correct, the girl who open this thread is looking for ideas for a novel in which she's working on, and if she asked this question, maybe is because the novel is going to have comedy in it, therefore the idea of hovering one inch high is pretty funny to me.

Can you imagine for example a guy hovering 1 inch from the floor and moving fast in multiple directions with a facial expression of desperation?

You become VISIBLE when ever someone is looking at you. They dont have to SEE you they just have to LOOK in your general direction my original post said

This power works on the fact there is no way to disprove or prove if you are actually turning invisible its a paradox...


In that case, you could still prove the power, if you had a room with those laser grids that chop up stuff they pass through.

Usually, invisibility is presented as allowing light to pass through your body instead of being reflected. Lasers are light beams, and are typically shown in media to act just like light (reflecting off mirrors, refracting through a prism). So that would mean that, like light, lasers would pass harmlessly through an invisible person's body.

Following this logic, you had a room with these lasers in them, assuming these lasers can only cut things and have no sensors of any kind (and thus couldn't "look" at you), and the room itself had no sensors or any way for a person to see you while you were in there, then if you stood in the middle of the room with a blindfold, preventing you from "looking" at yourself, and you started the lasers, then if the lasers pass harmlessly through your body, you could definitively prove that you could turn invisible. If the lasers don't, however, well... let's not worry about that.

But what if the invisibility is caused by cloaking?

What if seeing your eyelids counts?

Well, cloaking just means that instead of light passing through an object, it bends around it. But whether the lasers bends around you or passes through you, you still wouldn't be hurt.

As for the eyelids, that's why I said to use a blindfold, if it blocks out all the light, you wouldn't be able to see them.

Anyways, I don't see why is negative, I think these discussions are good since they improve your communication skills.

Also, what is a bad idea? the topic of the thread?. I don't see it that way because I laughed a couple of times reading some of the comments.

Finally, about the thing of turning good things into bad things, hmm, did you have a bad day? because if you did, I'm open for a hug



me whispering: by the way, please don't get mad, I'm just having fun practicing my English

This thread is pretty positive. It makes me laugh. :D

Coming up with ridiculous powers, laughing at the suggestion of others for worst contender, etc.

I do not see how that is not positive. Come to think of it, makes me want to watch Mystery Men again.
