The ability or feature that i would love to have would be the ability to see at night in the dark. I choose this because my room is pitch black with no windows at all and sometimes I would have to get up just to turn on the light.
With this ability i can move about in the dark without the use of any light.
Because people don't have very much of it
Men have even less
and civilized men have none to speak of.
Ah, so many to choose from. If many people were to also get this ability I would probably choose the flying ability of a fast and agile predatory bird. If this was rare or just for me, I'd take the ability to jump and land as a snow leopard does which would be phenomenally useful for acrobatic performances. At 7 times body length that would be 42 feet. Jumping 42 feet in one bound would also just have to feel incredible.
Chameleon eyes, because being able to see everywhere in two different directions would be great for multi-tasking, which I do a lot of.
I'd like to smell/feel/sensen(if that's the right way to say it) feelings or changes in others, like canines do, like wolves that can almost smell fear or nervousness.
I'd like that because I could help people better and read/smell/feel their lies. it'l be very helpfull in my line of work
I bet it would suck a little, but I would want the social abilities of the super-complex brain of cetaceans, since their social intelligence and social connections to their peers are more complex than ours. I would like to really connect with others with all my heart, even if I were alone in my ability to do so.

My first thought was the ability to fly like a bird (specifically a peregrine falcon), but then I thought, why not pick the strength of a bear? I'm not very strong physically because of my Crohn's disease, and it's a huge issue that comes up every single day. I can barely open the doors at my school because they're too heavy for me. I laugh about it to my friends and they have a running joke about how fragile and delicate I am and they help me do certain things, but it bothers me sometimes.
So I'd pick strength of a bear... I think it would be nice to have that kind of power for once.
Bird. . . .
because I can fly~ I proud that I can fly >_<
