Seeing as you hoarded all the fun powers, I will go with some pratical ones, like:

1. Enhanced Intelligence
2. Telekinesis
3. Super-Speed
4. Self-Duplication
5. Time Travel

... which would bring to a power level somewhere between Dr. Manhattan and David Allen.

In preferential order:

1. full memory recollection
2. super writing/editing/grading abilities
3. super information research powers

5. four is plenty for me; you can give my fifth super power to whoever else might need it

1. Make duplicates of myself -- I can do a variety of tasks at once, learn skills, and then reabsorb my copies like Madrox? Awesome!
2. Super-speed -- I can go visit friends in different states or countries with ease!
3. Shapeshifting -- animals are fun, why not be one?
4. Night-vision -- I'll never trip on anything in the dark again.
5. Travel through time -- As long as I don't break the universe or alter history too badly, this could be fun!

thanks to all that participated; thanks to Sunny McFarren for the subject; I let a lot of humorous responses through, but know if it ever feels like you're riffing on a question rather than answering it, I'll feel free to shut it down
