    I am highly paranoid, when people say that like me and think that I am cool... Do they really think so? I wonder! I would like to be like Parkman (from the show Heroes) and be able to read their minds, after they have said things like that. And then I could find out if Philip...

    Many people lie, exaggerate

    or often just keep things hidden from others. I even sometimes do the same. Life would be so much more easier if I was able to hear what people thought. ^^

    Wouldn't be great to read minds and to interject an addition to the thought processes of a person in mid-thought. Like brain storming without the haggling verbally. You could stop your own kids and tell them to stop thinking that way or you're punished. Say to them I know what...

    How To Be Happy

    I'd like to be able to just read someone's inner thoughts to see how they have, find or stay happy and they could (and I believe do) read my mind so I could tell them about the book HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE by Barry Neil Kaufman. Also I'd be fun to predict their next move.
