Teleportation is way up my list of super/paranormal power desirability. The sheer time savings in being able to teleport wherever you wanted to go would make this improve your productivity and leisure time enormously.

Of course there's the issue of "landing" safely. You really don't want to materialise inside a rock, or in the path of a bus, or whatever. If people could teleport, presumably we'd work out some safety protocols to go along with it.

Nevetheless, given the evidence we have on how we relate to the methods of transport currently in use, you'd expect that several thousand people could die every year in teleportation accidents in most countries (100,000 deaths or more per annum worldwide), and we'd simply treat it as a statistic we have to live with.
