Let’s be honest: Traveling anywhere is a huge pain in the tuchus.  Public transportation is gross, owning a car is expensive, and while young folk may have a lot of fun on a bicycle, hills are always gonna be a problem.  Obviously, then, the only possible answer is super-powers!  (Because why not?)  You could run there in an eyeblink, like the Flash, or just arrive in a poof of smoke ala Nightcrawler.  Of course, either super-speed or teleportation has its downside, leading us to today’s transportational query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) has long leaned towards the super-speed, but regrets that it  sounds like a lot of exercise, asking: Which would you rather have: Super-Speed or Teleportation?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. I’m going with teleportation. The amount of food needed to have the energy to make that useful wood be enormous. Meaning more on my poor wallet. Also if I accidentally break my leg I’d be out of luck.

    It depends what level of speed we are talking about. If its faster than light, run on any surface, perform almost any task in an instant like The Flash, then speed. Otherwise, teleportation.

    Teleportation has been my choice since I was about three. As a little kid who wasn’t allowed to cross the street on his own to visit his friend, teleportation won out. With super-speed, there’s still an outside chance you’ll get hit by a car.
