TP is a physical ability now? ;) Perhaps that's why my nipples hurt now...

Also, making people hear voices in their head can be quite useful, you know. You'll have them going "MUST... BUILD... JACUZZI..."

Draggard, please pay more attention to WHERE you are posting. Your post was not appropriate for Physical Abilities, nor for the thread it was posted in, so I have moved it here. I prefer not to have to move posts. I start to get cranky when I have to do it too many times for the same person.

In any event, while it MAY be unethical in most situations for you to use telepathy to make people hear 'voices' in their heads, can you think of a time when it WOULD be ethical???

If it prevents any crisis where there is a possibility of severe injury or death, then it would be ethical
