10 Ways to Use The Flash's Superpowers
Aside from, you know, saving the world.

The Flash officially premiered last night, and in between cooing at Grant Gustin’s face and taking in all the awesomeness, I was thinking about how his superpowers (lightning-quick speed, time travel, etc.) could really save the day for us ordinary humans.

  1. Beat the traffic. Manila traffic has gotten so bad that it’s not surprising for a commuter to spend three hours or more on the road every freaking day. Imagine all the errands you could run, shows you could watch, and books you could read in peace if those hours could be mere seconds.

  2. Literally make the rain go away. The Flash can bend the laws of physics, so the sudden downpours lately should be easy to take care of. I mean, it’d be fine if every downpour came with an Ezra Fitz, but no.

  3. Procrastinate! Talk about leaving your homework to the last minute.

  4. Work out. Because a 15-minute workout is never really just a 15-minute workout—you have to guilt-trip yourself into getting out of bed, find the perfect playlist, lace up your shoes, and so on.

  5. Go on a shopping spree. Those “shop as much as you want in x number of minutes” promos won’t know what hit them.

  6. Take that wretched midterm exam. You have all the time in the world to double-check your answers—just be careful not to overthink things!

  7. Do your chores. You still have to do them, but you’ll be done so quickly, it’ll be like waving a magic wand and scourgify-ing your room.

  8. Sneak a glance or three at your crush. It’s not technically staring if you do it in a flash (ahem), is it?

  9. Get over being friendzoned really quickly. It’ll sting just as much, but at least you can lick your wounds in private.

  10. Time travel. The Flash can actually use his lightning-quick speed to travel through time and space, so all these things are just the tip of the iceberg!
