04 – Top 5 Practical Super Powers for Everyday Life


Have you ever imagined having the power of flight to get to work? What about teleporting away from a bad date? In this week’s episode of Ranked: Top 5 Lists of Stuff That Don’t Matter, (Captain) Tuong La rounds up his very own rag-tag Justice League and puts a TWIST on the classic “What’s the best super power?” argument, nerding out instead about practical super powers that would be useful in everyday life. Big thanks to super-powered special guests Angus MacDonald, Stephen Peeling, and Rich Hilborn for lending their geeky-ness for this action packed episode.

See you in two weeks!

PS: I came up with at least 5 more superpowers probably more useful than the list we came up in this episode so as a reminder –  these lists don’t matter!
