This would be a fun thread to share,regarding a fantasy ,what 3 wishes would you want if you found a Genii lamp & was grented 3 wishes?

Mine would be:wish #1 world peace wich would involve all helping one another & taking care of the earth so future generations can enjoy it & be happy.
Wish #2 be able to travel in time to share history events to all in person even back to biblical times.
Wish #3 have unlimited income to help out needy organizations,churches,build the museum for the engine club they are planning,help the local comunity centers,habitat for humanity,and manny others.help out some close freinds & family .Even a buddy in NY state.
theres a lot to learn out there,many interesting subjects,and hobbies to enjoy

I had a house on the beach, it was horrible. The noise of the surf gets to you eventually and people walk through your yard back and forth and the sand is in everything. Hated it.

1) Health for everyone during their life but in exchange I'd have to limit the number of children people have....no more of this "I've got 11 kids!" stuff, if we can't have illness to prune the population people have to be happy with a couple youngunz to mess up.

2) A ranch up around Tahoe with a trout stream, maybe around Yosemite.

3) To see the look on Justins face when he realizes what some of the 'hottest chicks from the magic Café' have hidden from him.

That gets you into an endless time loop where you make the first two wishes over and over again always getting thrown back by that third wish.

Let's not forget that "genies" (D'jinn) were air spirits prone to trick their "owners" by a strict adherence to the letter of the law in the phrasing of the wish.

Or, as Robin Williams observed; "And ix-nay on the wishing for more wishes!"
"All the world's a stage, but the play is badly cast!" - Oscar Wilde

Wish #1: A pint of Guinness that would magically replenish itself when emptied.

Wishes #2 and 3: Two more pints just like the first.

First, assume that I can verify that this thing isn't a monkey's paw style wish granter. If I can't verify that, the wisest course of action may be to put it in a cubic meter of concrete and then drop that into the middle of the ocean...

Assuming the genii was at least well meaning, I'd want to take a long time thinking about it.

But a good start may be to wish for a huge increase in intelligence and wisdom, and the strength to act upon it. (alternately, something in the spirit of "I wish for whatever wish I would have wished if I was far smarter and wiser and kinder than I am now/a mere human..."

Alternately "I wish you to compute the CEV (Coherent Extrapolated Volition) and implement it." (Which is a related concept to the previous, except the notion is closer to "if _everyone_ was smarter, wiser, more the way they wish they were, and then that modified version was the way they wish they were, etc... ie, if the mechanisim people use to make moral decisions was reapplied to itself to modify itself however it wanted over and over... would any aspects of what we'd want converge? if so, act on that.")

Alternately, if things like the above are a nono... ie, if the genii says "you yourself have to make the wish, not just give me instructions on constructing it"... well, possibly the burial option mentioned at the start would be wisest...

Alternately, perhaps "end involuntary death and mental/physical decay" (note, even that is, again, assuming that the genii has been safely verified to not do the moneky's paw thing...)

I would wish for a really good pickle.

If the little magic *** gave me more I would wish to look no different than anyone else, and yet stand out (Like the guy in a black and white movie who is in color, but everyone else would be in color too, and still I would stick out, that would make them feel really stupid)

Also I would wish that I could get my wife to understand why I am right.

If he stopped giving me wishes I would simply use violence and get more. What's he gonna do? hide in the lamp? I have the lamp in my hand, I don't need to wish for a hammer to smash the thing flat. I usually have access to one.

He'll be asking me to grant some wishes.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

On the subject of wishes, you may all be interested in the Open Source Wish project: http://homeonthestrange.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=4

Essential idea is this: Make a wish, then let everyone "debug" it, so that just in case someday you're faced with a Genii, especially a monkey's paw one, you'll at least have a chance of making it out the other end. Smile

I've always think about what I wanted if I was ever given 3 wishes. My wish ranges from being rich, staying healthy, a nice house, more wishes etc.

In the end, I settle on just one wish and that is to be happy. Come to think of it, if you're happy, you get everything you wanted, your loved ones will be happy. If there is nothing is this world to make you sad, then everyone will be happy too.
