              Absorbing lots of drugs into your body will make your thinking 'limitless'... You will even begin a 'transcendence' to another plain. You could even 'push' your powers to the next level.

                  The first primate monkey that ever lived was called 'Lucy'. Although she couldn't talk and had no parents so somehow I doubt it.

                    Lucy was the oldest proto human skeleton we knew of, at one time. 3.2 million years old. good link is here: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2006/09/060920-lucy.html As to her parents, that's a chicken or the egg thing. It's called evolutionary theory, where her parents were something different (perhaps) and Lucy, or her kin, were different.

                        If you are a mob boss, and are transporting expensive drugs by wrapping them in a fragile plastic bag, and surgically inserting them inside a tummy of a person you kidnapped, please make sure to inform your thugs not to repeatedly kick that person very hard in the tummy, as there is a chance they could damage the fragile plastic bag and cause your drug to leak. Also please note that in some cases that person you kidnapped might become immortal after absorbing your drug, and then kill you and your entire mob

                              The best place to go back in time and witness the birth of civilization, is in the relatively young New York, and not a far older city where civilization did indeed start

                                that comes from HG well's idea of the time machine. But if Lucy meets the 3.2 million year old Lucy proto human, it wasn't in New York City's geographic location.

                                      Dolphins use 20% of their brain capacity, unlike humans which only use 10%. Yet you don't see dolphins eating human sandwiches now do you!

                                        When face to face with your nemesis, after killing all his henchmen. You stab him through the hands and then just walk away. Don't bother killing him, as that would not give the film an ending.

                                          Opening the powers of the brain somehow gives you teleportation, telepathy, telekinesis and time travel powers. So basically any power that begins with the letter T.

                                            You can walk into a hospital holding a gun, shoot it several times and kill someone. Yet no one will care, raise an alarm or even call the police.

                                              If you turn to dust on a plane, then vanish after causing a scene. You will wake up in a police station having apparently been drugged. Which makes sense when your made of dust. Somehow.

                                                You can shoot a man on the other side of a glass window, and the glass window will not break. The police wont bother coming and examining the crime either.

                                                            Lucy could have easily stopped the men at the research lab just like she did at the hospital. But the story had to progress and just by the 'original' plot you know the writers would fold.

Second, It wasn't Adam, it was the other Lucy, and third, there were no angles, just the dinosaurs! It wasn't feminist at all to picture the creator and creation both females.

If you move towards the wall, your hair and the chain will pull towards the wall as well
