You don't know what kind of power you would get. It could be really cool, or really lame. Would you do it?

Not a chance. I'm happy as I am. Why would I chance ending that for superpowers that are unlikely to make me significantly happier?

How extremely lame would the lame power be if its rolled? Like the power to absorb sunlight without getting sunburn lame? or the ability to change the color of your fingernails lame?

So if you assume that your chance of getting a lame power is equal to getting an awesome power, then your chances of coming out on top are even less than 50/50. Fvck that. I'd probably get screwed and end up "Spontaneous Acne Outbreak Man." I'd rather be dead.

How can so many people be saying Yes? The power is completely unknown! You have a 50% chance of surviving, then like a 5% chance of getting a really cool power. What kinda deal is that?

I think he ment 50% after surviving. Anyway I disagree that getting a cool power is a 50% chance. I think there are WAY more lame powers than cool ones, which is why I guessed it would be around 5% for a cool one.

It takes all my concentration to keep from turning invisible, and well, what with all the drinking...

You can turn invisible?

Just my skin. There was an accident a few years ago.
...
It did this to me, turned poor Ned into a walking callus, Cody can't touch oxygen without bursting into flames, and Richard, as usual, he was the lucky one.

Yeah. Superstretchy isn't so bad by comparison.

I definetly would. People take supplements everyday that have not been approved by the FDA in hopes of good gains in the gym.
