Flying vs Invisibility
There's a commercial that asks the question, what would you choose, to fly, or to become invisible? That is a tough one...
If you previously checked into my blog, all 5 of you, you would have noticed that I made a list of things you could do if you were invisible vs. if you could fly, pointed out the positives and negatives, whether it was used for good or evil. Blah Blah Blah.
But it really comes down to this for me. You have to be naked to reap all the benefits of invisibility, which is essentially sneaking around without being seen in order to spy on people. I have a hard time with the idea of sneaking around naked in public, even if I am invisible. What if my invisibility malfunctioned for some reason? There I would be, standing in the middle of suburbia or where ever, totally naked. Not good. So I would have to at least wear boxers. I would also need to wear my glasses so I could see where I was going. (I hate contacts. I tried them, but they make my eyes feel all dry and scratchy.) I also can't stand NOT wearing socks. My wife can walk around all day everyday bare foot, but it drives me crazy to be bare foot. So basically I would be sneaking around invisible in my boxers, glasses, and socks. Not really invisible. So what's the point of invisibility?
Unless I'm picked off by a hunter who mistook me for a goose during a leisurely flight over the countryside, I can't see a whole lot of negative in flying. And I get to wear all of my clothes. I think flying is good for me.
