There are very few people who don't wish there was something different about their body.

Who doesn't dream of washboard abs, smooth silky hair or sparkling eyes?

But what if we could improve our bodies even further?

What if we could give them special features more commonly found in science fiction?

Redditor MeatScepterGuy was curious what feature, big or small, people wished was part of their anatomy, leading them to ask:

"If you had the ability to add a feature to the human body, what would it be?"

Narcissism is never a particularly attractive quality.

Which is rather ironic, considering narcissists believe they are simply the be all and end all, that everyone wants them or wants to be them.

Yet spending extended periods of time with people who are so egregiously obsessed with themselves can be simply exhausting, as they frequently find a way of veering the conversation back to themselves.
