Dear 100 Hour Board,
If you’re invisible, can you see yourself? What are your opinions?
First of all, I am terribly sorry for holding this over a ridiculous amount of time. I would be lying if I claimed it had nothing to do with the fact that you're a writer, and so I knew you wouldn't be offended (horribly) by the long delay... but sorry anyways.
Alright now, let's finally answer this.
It depends on the method of invisibility. If your invisibility is due to an external cause, I'm inclined to think you could see yourself (like Harry Potter's cloak), while if it's internal, then you can't (like the Invisible Man). But then you have cases of small objects--like, say, a ring--that turn their wearer's invisible. In this case, if the small object actually made your body invisible, then you wouldn't be able to see yourself; otherwise, you would.
Man, I thought I'd have so much more to say than this... but turns out I don't.
Happy New Years, and may all your future questions be answered much more promptly!
I sure hope I'd be able to see myself or else I'd probably stub my toes and trip on things enough that it would be embarrassing. If I was supposed to be doing something superhero-y or mission-oriented it would be pretty bad if I kept stubbing my toes and yelping out in pain. Very ineffective. My hand-eye/foot-eye/body-eye coordination is already terrible, can you even imagine how bad it would be if I couldn't even see myself???
Regardless of what other stories of invisibility suggest, I say you can always see yourself or it would be impossible to get anything done when you're invisible.
