View Full Version : Invisibility

21st Jan 2009, 09:44
I have The Power. I can be invisible.

I'm 6'1" (185cm in new money) and (ahem) over 100kgs. But all I have to do is put a supermarket trolley in front of me, and I disappear. Seriously. People can't see me (or the trolley). They are oblivious to my presence. I can be behind, alongside of, next to, or anywhere other than directly in front of someone (even that doesn't work sometimes), right in their personal space, and instantly, other people become totally unaware that I exist.

It's amazing. I don't completely understand this power, but I find that it works in car parks as well (most often in supermarket car parks. Is there something about supermarkets, I wonder?)

Do other Prooners have this power? I can't be the only one, surely.

Once upon a time one could make oneself invisible on this forum.
Alas this time is long gone now :{ :{ :{

The same effect can be achieved in business premises by donning overalls and carrying a tool box,when one strips off the overalls an puts down the tool box one materializes like a Klingon Warbird switching off its cloaking device.

This (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8x4P24IUDqY) guy was visible, then became invisible, so it seems!

In my particular case there is also the special invisibility field fitted in most pubs and bars, which renders me invisible to the staff on the other side. In most cases the establishments also appear to have invested in the optional extra sonic field which converts any sound wave I emit to an ultra-high frequency which they cannot hear.

One can be completely invisible to Air Canada stewardesses (far from nubile) up to the point one lifts, just slightly, the window blind to view the beautiful, day lit, Arctic scenery below. From that point on, you may as well be a strobe light with a siren!

Never become the person who is 'good at fixing things' especially PCs of overhead projectors - Invisibility guaranteed until the darn thing isn't fixed quickly when you suddenly get the spotlight treatment.

I get this invisibility thing on a part-time basis but I never know when it's coming.

It seems like a normal journey on a normal day, then I discover my car and I are invisible at nearly every junction. It seems to be worse on wet days, but it can happen in any weather conditions.

I'd like to drive the invisible car. You know, the one that sits in the inside lane of the motorway that the bloke in the middle lane is obviously overtaking...

Douglas Adams invented the universal invisibility machine.

It's called 'Someone Else's Problem'.

It's not just AC stewardesses.... it works at AC and NWA Customer Service Desks too.

BTW, Advertising Standards insisted that the Air Canada Customer Service Desk at YYZ be renamed...

It's now known as 'The Wailing Wall.'

Negative Bar Presence is the name of my invisibility. I once mananged 27 minutes clutching a 20 note. My friends spotted it and assembled the round eventually by ordering bits themselves.

When it came to paying I was pointed out at which point the bar tender recoiled as if I had just appeared. Laughs all round, bt it was not a nice experience. One though I've had many times since.

I find that in parking lots, my car is invisible. People step from the sidewalk without looking and just start walking in whatever direction they please, with kids or without, with trolleys or not and little regard to a cars' proximity. Thank goodness for ABS braking.

Would've made for interesting hood ornaments. A little visit to the Taxidermist and I could start my own wall collection! :}
