Congratulations, America. We’re getting Coronavirus vaccinations en masse.

After administering over 250 million doses of rushed to market, non-FDA approved COVID-19 vaccines, we’ve once again proven our bestitude on a world scale.

Now that the government and their corporate overlords have injected super-serum into a third of the American population’s bloodstreams we’re forced to play a game of wait and see.

Will we gain new superpowers from the injections? Or is this just the beginning of a real life zombie story?

At the very least we’re hoping to survive the COVID-19 pandemic and not kill too many other people in the process.

We’re optimistic here at 5280 Geek. We believe that when we lined up for shots we were also in queue for new superhuman abilities. That’s what this week’s Your Quarter’s Worth is all about.

Here is The Top 10 Superpowers We’re Expecting Now That We’ve Had COVID Vaccines:

#10 Rapid Healing

Since we’ve all transitioned to more cooking at home and careers in manual labor.

#9 Flight

We won’t ever have to put up with delays or layovers again!

#8 Super Speed

In and out of the supermarket, home improvement superstore, and library in under fifteen minutes.

#7 Photographic Memory

Maybe it will help us remember what the hell blockchain is?

#6 Invisibility

Can’t see us.

#5 Hulk Strength

Finally get the damn lid off this jar.

#4 Elasticity

Taller ya’ll. . .

#3 Technokinesis

What’s easier than thinking about what we want and having it show up on our doorsteps moments later?

#2 Hyper-Intelligence

Finally figure out this whole cryptocurrency thing.

#1 Invulnerability

. . .To COVID-19 at least.

The list could go on for daysor at least until we run out of geekified comic book inspirations. We selected the ones that could make the most difference in the world, our earning potential, or personal entertainment.

Pick one or a few for yourself. Then when you go in for your own first dose, second dose, or inevitable booster be sure to ask the nurses and intake professionals for the ones you’ve selected.

That’s it for now. Stay safe and geeky out there while we all wait for herd immunity or the first real world zombie outbreak. And if there’s still a world and internet afterwards, we’ll see you on the next one.
