Um... If I have a superpower. I'd like to have a power of reflection. You know, that power is if you love someone, the person you love must love you, if you are kind to someone or if you are helpful to someone then that people must be kind to you. That's it!!!.

If I can have a superpower I'd like to choose the power of read and tell the minds what I want, I agree with the person with the voice 5 because If I would be able to do that I can do almost everything much easier for everybody, avoiding communication problems and help people understand each other, also the power of healing could be interesting to have.

Thanks for the episode!
Gordon jokes are always great!

Super power most cherished by some people, but it works like magic, if I possible I would like to build on instincts and abilities.
I would like super power that can make me excel in my endeavours of lives.
No, I don't.

I'd choose INVISIBILITY, messing with my friends and enemies would be so much fun.

Im dying to see the faces ravi and tess

Thank you guys for one more series!It was such amazing.
Now I am really looking foward to the next one.Thanks.
I think a cool super power would be able to fly!It would be amazing.

Thank you tess and ravi, your voice always makes my Morning better.

I suppose, I am dying to have a ability for making people around me happy and funny, because ,to my mind, happiness- the most important thing in our life.

How good to listen to Gordon again! Wow, he’s more talkative than has been before. He said he had a position as a sound producer in a documentary that’s about whales. I wish I saw what he did while the trip. I mean lots of whales just right in front of you, so close. Someday I visited Oceanarium in my home city where I saw real delphins. That’s was really amazing.
I liked how the quiz was led. Ravi seems to be wishing be better than Tess and always say she takes easier topics in quiz than he is, therefore he has less score than Tess. This time he got 0-5 score. He did his best, even tried to press the button earlier then Tess, disregarding he hadn’t any right answer. Happily that’s was just a joke. Nice to see his reaction.
Answering the question about what superpower would you like to have, I’d say it’s flying definitely. Just imagine when you fly, you can see everything around from big height. The world seems much more beautiful if you look at it like birds do. Fields, trees, lakes and buildings seems so cute and beautiful like in a picture.
Thanks a lot for this series.
