If you were granted unlimited magic powers for just five minutes, what would you do?
I'm the sort of person who would probably spend those five minutes exploring the word "unlimited". Could I, for instance, grant myself another five minutes or, even more simply, the powers without the time limit? If no, then the powers aren't truly unlimited, but maybe I could grant those powers to someone else, or multiple someones else for five minutes? With an implanted desire to use them the way I wanted to before going on with their own choices? If the "unlimited" part is a one time only deal, how about "limited" long-term powers? For myself or others?
Admittedly, all this could be taken care of by granting myself knowledge of the limitations of this "unlimited" power, but where I'd go from there depends on what the answers are.
I guess I'm trying to say, don't combine the word unlimited with a limit in the same sentence :)
