Stand up and be counted

I am reliably informed that today is International Delurking Day. Some of you lurkers have already revealed yourselves through your embrace of the Archies, the hottest once-a-year meme around. (There's still time to get in on the fun!) But there must be more of you, unless forty people are directed here each day by The Google looking for report from Hoople or computer in my life (Romanian only).

So it's time to sheepishly raise your hand and announce to the class your name, hometown, major, favorite movie (only one allowed, people, show some decisiveness), last music you heard, and what your superpower would be if you could have one. Speak up so the people in the back can hear you!

superpower... I want to be able to truly communicate with anyone. I don't know what that would look like in a power, though.

Name: Paul C.
Location: Columbus, OH
Major: Undecided
Favorite movie: Belle de Jour
Last music heard: Haven't actually listened to music since the GF and I went to an Elvis tribute show on Saturday night which, by the way, was awesome. Which brings me to...
Superpower of choice: I used to say invisibility, or perhaps the ability to become unstuck in time. But after Saturday night's show I kind of want to be Elvis. That counts, right?
