The ability to heal others, because I hate to see people and animals in pain.

The ability to be calm and content.

Think about it.
If you could fly, you'd be abducted by the CIA.
If you could read minds and somehow avoided the CIA you'd have to deal with what goes on in peoples heads... my own thoughts are enough.
If you had the psychic ability to hear at great distances... everyone uses the toilet, you know. Keep that in mind.
If you could turn invisible people of the opposite gender would never trust you.
If you were always calm and content people would just think your weird. I could live with that.

power to go back in time. You could basically predict stock prices, win lotteries.

Or be like superman. Indestructible, super strength and speed. I could bend the world to my will.

The ability to cure mental illness of any kind while leaving intact the incredible imagination and unusual perspective it provides. I have lived with and witnessed mental illness my entire life (in family, friends, self, and strangers) and I know the devastating power it holds and the lives it has ruined. It is also widely ignored, misunderstood, or shamed by the general public and mental health services are often cut first when budgets are considered. The pain and suffering of mental illness is as profound as any physical disability/illness. And as far as I know, there is no cure for mental illnesses like paranoid schizophrenia. If I am mistaken, please share!

Assuming I live in a world where the government or someone else wouldn't abduct me, I'd choose healing also. Being calm and content all the time sounds boring

Not if you've lived your life with depression (or anxiety, etc.)

Healing as a super power theoretically sounds great, but the responsibility - trying to get to as many people to help as possible, with new ones being born all the time - it would drive me completely bonkers.

I don't think super powers of any kind would be all that they're cracked up to be.

Avocados are ripened by ethylene gas. Apples belch out ethylene gas (more so than bananas).
So I would hypothesize one could buy avocados, put some in a paper bag with apples at room temp to ripen fastest, put others in a basket at room temp for next ripening, and put some in the fridge for last ripening.

If it works dont start calling me Avocado Man, green spandex just doesnt become me.

UH-OH. Were any of those forums dedicated to hunting or fishing or assassination?

I fear our healing superpowers might get replaced with the power to spread disease, or cause wounds to fester, or... make another Fantastic 4 movie.

I would want to live forever but while living forever I want to have the energy and body of an 18-20 year old because there is so much I want to do and so many places I want to see and so little time.

Honestly in reality it would not be fun to live forever but honestly there are so many places I want to see so maybe teleporting would be better. For example you want to see mount everest you can teleport there and when it gets too cold and scary teleport back home :P
