I Invisibily Invincible

 Imagine there is a cloak, wearing which people can see through you and that you become totally invisible. If this kind of an Invisibility Cloak comes into the possession of a teenager how often would he use it ? Harry Potter has such a cloak that he puts to many a use to go to prohibited places at prohibited times . To follow the bullies in Slytherin House, to sneak out of Hogwarts in the middle of the night and what not! 

It reminds me of the movie Hollow Man where a group of scientists discover the formula and methodology to making a person irreversibly invisible. The person who offers himself for the experiment starts getting sinister ideas once he has the power. 

What could one do if one had the power to become invisible ?

It would be the best asset to become a detective or maybe an intelligence agent ? You can be anywhere and observe all that you want. But I am not sure if you can take pictures . I wonder if the camera will be a part of the invisibility. 

Of course one can be the super good guy cum super hero going to all places of injustice, brutality, exploitation or bullying and teach all the bad guys a lesson. 

Looking at it from a selfish perspective we could travel wherever we want. Walk into the airport and board any plane you want and see whatever you want and keep country hopping! How cool is that ?

Play as many pranks as you want on everyone you know.  

Wherever you want to go movies, theatre, music show it's a free ticket less entry . 

 I recently watched Miss Perigraine s home for peculiar children on Netflix (Hope I got that name right) and there is a boy there who is always invisible. 

What do you think you would do if you were invisible? Does that make you invincible ?

  1. I would love to be invisible. I can go anywhere without getting stuck in traffic jams or having to converse with others around me. :D
    Invincible? Maybe not. There will be limits to everything.

  3. Invisibility can be overpowering and bordering on invincibility. I can be where I want and probably even do what I want.

    1. But if it's for life it can make us lonely and left out I suppose.

  4. I would not want to be invisible although enjoy your take on the advantages of such a skill. I think Harry and his friends used the invisibility cloak wisely (for the most part). Weekends In Maine

    1. Yes they did and we see Harry using it with more purpose in the second half of the series!

  5. I’m not sure I’d like it if I couldn’t become visible. The invisibility cloak, of course, is not permanent, but being invisible all the time, not so good, how many friends would you have if they never knew when you were listening to them? Who would date you? ­čśé

  6. It may be tricky to travel invisibly in Covid times. The virus may hop on for a free ride too--just pondering:)

    1. The virus is already causing chaos mainly due to its invisibility !

  7. I think sometimes being invisible would my own kind of freedom! Just to even sit by the oceanside and not be bothered by cops or hawkers. To be able to soak in silence and quiet around you, to watch people go by without really being intrusive. I wouldn't mind that one day a month I suppose! Would I want to be or would that make me invincible? I hope not.

    1. Sitting by the beach is fun. As you stare into the vast expansion of the sea the triviality of many things that bother you dawns upon you !

  8. I'm never able to choose between flight and invisibility as a superpower. I think I would go for flight, only because being invisible could be quite lonely and I'm not a prankster, so that aspect has little attraction. If I were invisible, I would use it to visit places which are not generally open to the public.

    1. You seem to have read many of my posts at one shot and were kind enough to leave a comment in each of them as well... Thanks a ton :)

      Even for those who are pranksters it would get boring in a while

  9. Kevin Bacon was very impressive in Hallow Man. His slipping into evil ways was so balanced and not hurried. As for your question, during covid times even if I am invisible, I will just wash my hands and sanitize everything and stay home.
