I would rather _______ than ______.

Let's at least try to keep it sensible. If you write "I would rather win $ 1 billion than $1 million.", you're just being silly.

"I would rather play an incredible round of golf than have sex."

I would rather have a gf than not have a gf.

I do have one, by the way. For the uninformed.
The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

I'd rather have teleportation magic than being able to fly.

Imagine being able to fly 100km/h? That would suck, COMPARED to teleporting.

And flying faster than 100km/h? Well, at those speeds you're gonna have a hell of a time in your windsuit. I can't imagine that would be pleasurable.

And yes, I do understand that flying would be fun, in and of itself.

I'd assume, that being able to fly, you'd be able to withstand your top speed while flying, which could a perk to flying. :o

I would rather drive darn near any motorbike than even the coolest car.

I've been riding bikes for over 40 years and went to race car driving school and have owned a Corvette. Motorbikes rule.

Teleportation without accompanying visual powers would mean a gruesome death for you in short order.

why
I mean, is your power really gonna be just "Paris!" and then you show up on the street in Paris? That's pretty general. hahaha

A realistic one would be to teleport somewhere precise. And if you're not careful then you'll teleport next to a building where half your cells are intermingled with wall and you'll explode.

but then its 2 powers, no? unless you want to argue that teleportation necessitates some kind of special vision. but then surely flying requires some kind of secondary power that would make it not suckyeah we're really in the weeds now

Flying wouldn't necessitate any significant powers that don't already exist in the animal kingdom. Flying at sub 1500 foot altitudes at 50 mph wouldn't really require any secondary powers. Teleportation on the other hand, assuming you knew where you wanted to go, you wouldn't know what else was around the spot  you wanted to go. Then you'd materialize around a person or vehicle or say a bicycle with your shin surrounding its gears and chains as they're moving. Unless you're talking teleportation within visual range.

I'd rather use English words when speaking English than use Konglish or Korean words that aren't understood by 95% of the English-speaking world. (Renember: kimchi is an English word, "kimbap" is not.)

"I would rather play an incredible round of golf than have sex."
Rather than have equally-rare incredible sex?

You're just being silly.

Golf and sex are easy. But an incredible experience is a different matter. How often do you call an experience that?
