    Which elemental protection (Fire, Cold, Electricity, Acid, Sonic) would you most like to have in real life?

    Hrm, Good question:

    Fire would be pretty cool to skip the oven gloves, and also stop me sweltering in summer

    Cold would make Skiiing a lot more fun and comfortable, no need to dress up to keep warm

    Electricity would be pretty handy if I'm tinkering with Electronics

    Acid and Sonic not really much need for.

    Have to go with Fire, more useful day to day and would allow you to freak people out more easily.

    Sonic - Raising teenage daughters that have their friends over, this would go a long way in helping me keep my cool (what little I have as a Father of teenage daughters) during the scream fests about boys, bands, scary movies and "who took my stuff" sessions

    I live in the south, so definitely fire. I can always wear more layers in the winter for my own cold resist, but summers are sweltering!

    I have some renovations to do, and it's on old house with some knob & tube still in the walls.

    So DEFINITELY electric resist!

    Cold. I'm on blood thinners for the rest of my life due to a genetic disorder that produces lots 'n lots of blood clots. That's why I've had three pulmonary embolisms to date, and I'm unlikely to survive a fourth (survival rate on one PE is around 23%, so...). Being on Coumadin means I'm always too damn cold. I hate it.


    Yeah, I'd go with Cold.

    Cold. Would love to explore the Arctic without weather concerns.
    Cilon can be found on Orien.

    Default Elemental Resistance

    I would take sonic resistance so that I'd be protected from tater tots and milk shakes.

    Those are called "buffs" in my household.

    That's a tough one. I do not like being cold, which might lead to cold resistance. However, if I had fire resistance, I could be really, really warm with no worries. So my vote is for fire.

    Fire for sure... if you're too cold, you can always throw on another jacket.
    If you're too hot, there's a practical limit to the measures you can employ.

    "Which elemental protection (Fire, Cold, Electricity, Acid, Sonic) would you most like to have in real life?"

    Interesting question.

    Sonic would be handy to sleep through all the tree-cutting, lawn mower and construction noises that seem to go on around here.

    Acid's not usually an issue, unless one gets on the wrong side of some crazy person or takes chemistry classes. Still, might help with acid indigestion.

    Electricity is usually not an issue either unless you do a lot of electrical work (or are careless), or live where there's a lot of thunderstorms. Still, it could be handy on occasion.

    Cold would be really useful to keep down heating bills and save on winter clothing, plus if one was ever homeless at least you wouldn't freeze. So it would definitely be my second choice.

    However, I think I would go with fire. It's good for keeping cool in hot weather, or if I were to move to a place with a hotter climate, but also useful to avoid accidental burns or, in cases of emergency, actual fires. And you could do neat tricks like walking on hot coals, swallowing fire or roasting nuts and marshmallows in your bare hands.

    Default No Question

    There's no question about it - Sonic wins hands-down. Gotta protect myself from my daughters singing...

    Definitely fire. The flames are too strong on the forums!

    Seriously though, I am not afraid of cold, but cannot bear the summer heat.
