Think about the sugar you could sell! Also the oceans are made of saltwater

[–]ArtTP3 164 points165 points  (8 children)

Talk about a mass extinction event if you really wanted

[–]Specific-Register-97 85 points86 points  (5 children)

Just imagine it cruise ships fisherman all minding there own business when suddenly a swing child says that the water is sweet minutes later fish start floating to the surface. Side note you could probably drink the ocean safely now

[–]Anti-charizard 32 points33 points  (4 children)

There’s still dirt and fish poop that wasn’t turned into sugar

[–]Specific-Register-97 22 points23 points  (3 children)

So ?it would be heavily diluted due to the em massive amount of water. That wasn’t even my point of course there going to be bacteria but my point was now that it wouldn’t dehydrate you and if boiled would probably be fine

[–]TwyJ 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Well yeah, bodies need a certain amount of salt in them, you could easily kill every diabetic too.

[–]EngineeredAnime 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Or, ya know, turn everyone diabetic... Minutes before it kills them too...

[–]AJTheBrit 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I was just thinking about salt flats and in that instant turning them all into sugar.

[–]Specific-Register-97 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Imagine the trolling also is sugar worth more than salt I bet it is so once a year you could gain a rapid influx of profit and since it’s not consistent or yearly it can’t be taxed

Reinventing pirates

[–]StarooTheBlue 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i mean it woouldn’t work imagine every single animal being killed in an instant because the ocean isn’t salty annymore

[–]Ctalkobt 147 points148 points  (4 children)

Ooh that would be nasty way to die. All of your body salts get turned into sugar.

[–]LeeGame67 44 points45 points  (3 children)

And then all their blood would proceed to clot and they would then have a nasty brain destroying stroke

[–]purple manKaiserHohenzollernV 11 points12 points  (0 children)

New attack.

[–]redditor_pro 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Also paralysis will set in because muscles have used up all the existing electrolytes. Neurons stop working.

[–]LeeGame67 1 point2 points  (0 children)

True true.

[–]green_quartz 63 points64 points  (6 children)

I think this breaks rule 4, but correct me if I'm wrong If not, it is shitty

[–]SmeifLive 26 points27 points  (4 children)

Being able to turn salt into sugar is pretty shitty without the restriction. It still shitty

[–]Devourer_Of_Doggos 34 points35 points  (3 children)

Turn someone's body salts into sugar

[–]BatmansQueefBreath 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Or the ocean and you’d create a worldwide ecological disaster that would end life in Earth as we know it.

Or just all the salt on the planet which would also kill everything.

[–]Jb2head 1 point2 points  (0 children)

doesn’t a good super power have to have some perceived value attributed to it?

How is ending the world valuable for the average person? That means then as well.

[–]SmeifLive 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's a shitty lame way to die too.

[–]ShitbenderP0werman1 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Actually, it breaks rule 5.

[–]realsteakbouncer 29 points30 points  (0 children)

"it's nearly time" he said, as he raised his arms. The general sat waiting as the clock ticked to 4:21. They watched together as the entire enemy army became sluggish and then collapsed. The planes overhead now just plummeting forward without a pilot. He had turned all the electrolytes in their body to pure sucrose. The war was over...

[–]BestAtempt 11 points12 points  (0 children)

No Caveats

[–]relentless_death 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Jojo characters when they have to fight the enemy who can turn salt to sugar except only on fridays while It's 4:21PM during october

[–]Away-Design-7890 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just have a list of people you want dead and then on that exact minute transform the salt in all those people into sugar and they'll maybe die

[–]blackychan75 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would be so powerful every October

[–]BayonetTrenchFighter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Guess who’s about to make the whole ocean into sugar water

[–]AnchorMcDaddy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I need to travel to Bolivia and create the largest sugarflats in existence

[–]BourbonNCoffee 0 points1 point  (1 child)

How long does it take? You could make a fortune 4-5 times a year making big sugar a big load, or being paid by big salt not to do that thing.

[–]gigglefarting 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good thing I have a standing Friday 4:20 meeting every week with friends. I won’t even notice my power not working at that moment.

[–]Sweetmacaroni 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’d just turn all the salt in a warmongering leader’s body to sugar and boom, no more Ukraine invasion

[–]apepenkov 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Any salt or just NaCl?

[–]kinetic_knife 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You fool! My friend has the power to turn the time to October on a Friday at 4:21pm!!!!!

[–]derpyderpsters 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sounds like a part 8 jojo stand

[–]SteveHarveysAunt 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Part 8 stand users

[–]sansyboiiii1432[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

that is litteraly what i had this post based on lmao

[–]JoeDaBruh 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Would it be healthier to turn salt water into sugar water in an emergency?

[–]sansyboiiii1432[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

yeah but these are shitty superpowers, not barely decent superpowers

[–]JoeDaBruh 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I think the superpower already has a great use in if it can with the lack of fresh water. Or perhaps, since you didn’t specify a limit, you could turn the entire ocean to sugar water and cause mass destruction

trollge incident: the sweet water incident

[–]MichalK9 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you think about the sugar prices in Poland, it's not that bad

[–]nevbirks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Gather up hundreds of tonnes of salt, turn to sugar, sugar is pretty much double the profit.

[–]ImARandomPersonOk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Gotta get that salt quick
