    Default If you had three wishes...

    Of course you can't wish for more wishes, but all those dumb rules about love and killing people are out of the window.

    1) World Peace (in the form of a weaponless society of firm pacifists)

    2) Immortality (eternal youth and all that)

    3) To be World Dicatator

    1) To be able to control my physical shape, and alter it when I want to.
    2) How about that prince(sse) on the white horse?
    3) Ooh, a castle! I'd like a castle in Ireland.

    Why not world peace? Because in the long run, world peace would lead to horrors of overpopulation, loss of free will, disease, hatred, lack of resource..
    Why not immortality? If I am able to control my physical shape, and can alter it when I want to, I can control age itself... So I can grow old when I have decided it's been enought.
    Why not wealth and money? Well.. It's nice and all.. But do I really want to rely on that? And how is that going to affect the overall economy?

    But why that castle? Oh, come one! Romantic! An idyllic, small castle in Ireland, overlooking the sea... *melts*

    Wish #1- The wisdom to best use the other two.

    Awww damn, I hate it when I completely fail to think things through. You're right of course, but my wish would be fun if i added on little extra bit. If I could do it for one week. That would be fun, I suppose I would have the memory of the world wiped as well, don't want any reprecussions. WEll that chucks Immortality out of the window. Hmmm.....

    Ooo Oooo I know!

    To be able to fly like Superman! Well for that week only i guess.

    Now THAT would be a heck of a vacation.

    1) Immortality (able to live while I want to, but able to die when I need to)
    2) Ability to spontaneously create food and water (ideally that tastes good)
    3) Able to grant wishes (if possible - I'm not wish for more wishes, just to be able to grant wishes of others - although I want to be able to, not forced to and ideally able to cancel them too.)
    3b) Able to travel through time (if granting others wishes isn't possible - ideally able to adjust my age, if within my lifetime, and replace myself (although I don't want to have to replace myself) but if not, that's alright too).

    Simply put, I can live where/when I want without needing anything else, but can be as involved as I want...

    Although, the time travel could be interesting if I can overlap... It would probably work better if I had a single overlapping timeline, and it readjusted as I went. I know what I mean, if you don't...


    As for how to get other wishes:
    World Dictator? No, thanks. But if I do want to, I can always be the guy behind the scenes that really controls it.
    Change Physical Shape? Actually, that might work... Assuming it would, then that instead of immortality.
    Prince on a White Horse? Well... Might be one at some point...
    Castle in Ireland? Yeah, might do that at some point if I get 3a. If I get 3, I'll grant you that wish Dryad, as long as I'm allowed to visit when I wish
    World Peace? Too scary, the thought of that much control. I'd prefer personal peace first.
    Wealth/Money? Don't need it. If I want it, I'll get a job for a couple dozen years, then retire or wander off. Repeat every century or so (or country)...
    Omnipotence? Well... I don't know if I'd be able to handle that much.
    Wisdom? That's my goal. But I don't like messing with people's minds, not even my own.

    1) The library of Alexandria to be restored, and into my ownership
    2) Super-genius level intelligence
    3) The ability to pull exact change out of my wallet for any purchase I might make.

    Immortality is not on my list for one reason, and one reason only: I do not want a lifetime where I must see those I love grow old and die leaving me alone. The level of anguish that would bring would generally bring most immortals to eventual suicide.

    1. To have event triggered theme music. That is to say, like in a video game or movie, when I'm relaxing, the music becomes relaxing, when I'm in action sequence, it'll play a fast beat.
    2. Instantaneous Sleeping, Eating, or Changing. I walk up to a bed, and think, the theme music plays a little rest rift, and a few seconds later I wake up, a few hours have passed, and I'm back at full HP. I hold clothes in my hands, think about changing them, and go into an action sequence that obliterates my previous clothing, and places my new clothing on one set at a time. Eating will have a "Munch" Sound Effect, And the food would disappear, and I'll be full.
    3. You know what, those ones sound cool enough already.

    1: Selective Immortality. What other people said.

    2: The ability to commune with the spirits of the dead, no matter where they are. Make friend, friend dies, can still talk to friend. Also probably pretty useful for achieving a greater understanding of the world and life in general.

    3: A debit account that never runs out of money. Because, alas, money pretty much rules the world, and as a result, can take care of almost any problem.

    I'd stick to my default. I'd wish for a sandwich.

    Then I'd wish for a quiet room where I could just read or sit and think.

    I don't know about the third. I'd have to think about it, make sure I get some good use out of it.

    Immortality and the possibility to get invisible at will. I think that's it, divine watcher, here I come. Well, shapeshifting would be nifty too, to fit the last wish. Forget that, magical healing powers would be better.

    Well its really your decision I think, these are all your wishes, if you want to try and out smart a malevolent entity go for it. But if not, just assume that the wish is fulfilling what you mean by your desire.

    1. I wish that all people, everywhere, under any and all circumstances, do not need to: Eat, Drink, Breathe or Sleep, though they are free to do any of the above if they like.
    2. I wish that, no matter how old or fragile or young or fat or any other qualifier, all people, world over, would be in good physical condition for their age, as in they have a healthy immune system and are in good shape, under all circumstances. They can still get sick/be injured but its all fair and equal.
    3. I wish all sickness in Africa was cured.

    I think I just cleaned up Africa quiet nicely, and thats enough for me. Note: This doesn't mean No War, or No Death, guns still kill healthy people after all. and people in good shape still get sick, and old people all die inevitably anyway. I chose not eliminate poverty or make everyone super smart because I figured, "That'd be totally pointless," so thats my list.
