It's a Superpowered Monday!
As you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here. We care!If you'd like to be part of the Itzl Alert Network, please leave a comment asking to join, or send us a message asking to join. We'd love to have you. The bigger our network, the less likely someone will be stranded all alone.We have split up the publishing duties, but we welcome everyone in IAN to do daily diaries for the group! Every member is an editor, so anyone can take a turn when they have something to say, photos and music to share, a cause to promote or news!Monday: BadKitties
Ok, we have a current diary schedule. If you would like to fill in, either post in thread or send FloridaSNMom a Kosmail with the date. If you need someone to fill in, ditto. FSNMom is here on and off through the day usually from around 9:30 or 10 am eastern to around 11 pm eastern.
This is your lucky day -- the Genie of Gratuitous Gifting has dowsed Google maps and found the way to your house to offer you a brand new talent. But not just any talent. Oh no. Because you're an IAN member, you get a superpower!
You could leap tall buildings at a single bound -- or maybe you'd like X-ray vision. How about the ability to live in outer space without a space suit (like Superman) or maybe even being able to fly? Just think how much better rush hour would be if you could simply fly yourself home!
Interestingly, one thing that often comes up when this is asked is the ability to learn anything quickly -- "hyperintelligence." If this is the superpower you want, then there's even better news: Jim Kwik believes he can teach you how to get this superpower.
Bit if that's not your cuppa tea, you have more options. Superheroes are everywhere these days, thanks to television shows that promote the idea that ordinary people can do extraordinary things. The Big Brained Superheroes is a group that works with kids to help get them interested in technology seems pretty extraordinary.
If you're stuck for ideas, trot over to the Super Power Wiki for a whole list of things. But be warned -- you're going to need the superpower to deal with eyeball-bending colors and lots of graphics if you wade in there!
So what would you pick?
