My friend and I go through this idea every so often. We always called it, "Worst. Superpower. Ever."

1) The ability to fill a room with confetti.
2) The ability to un-salt food.
3) The ability to make any pillow explode in a burst of stuffing.
4) The ability to fart rainbows.

Some of these could actually have some use, and I'd totally date a girl with "Increase someone's blood alcohol content through kissing"
