Did this topic a while ago, got some interesting responses. Thought I'd run it again since we have a whole new crop of posters.....




Say you find a genie in a bottle, and now any three wishes can be yours. What would they be?
(PS. Nix the wishing for more wishes)

For me:
1) unlimited money
2) eternal (but voluntary) youth
3) the power of flight


What they would NOT be:
1) world peace
2) end to poverty
3) anything having to do with nature/environment





Or, on a lighter note--
1) Gigneil
2) A Guillotine
3) ....and a black mask  Big thumbs up

I guess I'm going to have to be the party pooper...

Not Wishing For...
-Infinite money. Taxes/the Government, chatty charities, and family will all come after me for the rest of time.  Nuts
-Ability to fly/DeltaGuy's absence of gravity. Too superpower-ish for me. Not too keen on just jumping up and never coming down.  Laugh out loud
-Anything beneficial for other people. It'd only work for god knows how long, then when everything comes crashing down, they come complaining to me. But, they don't have to know that I wished it. Hmm...

Wishing For
-Just enough money. Few million, perhaps, to be reasonable. Still have to give up a bunch, but at least I wouldn't be THAT GUY who never seems to go broke. I still want to be human.
-With all that money, I'd get my own plane and learn how to fly it. Not really a wish, but don't be such a critic.  Big grin Maybe the ability to learn and retain information better than I already do. School'd be easier, as well as learning to fly.
-People to stop complaining. If people stop complaining, world peace (to a certain degree) would result. Good, you have your religion, I have mine. Stop complaining, then maybe you wouldn't want to kill me.

1) One of these things:

2) eternal youth

3) unlimited money

The BBJ is to fly around the world and to live in, the youth is to have enough time to fly around the world with my girlfriend multiple times and see everything it has to offer, and the money is to pay for the pilots (until I get a license to fly one) as well as fuel, landing fees, etc., and the things I'd do at my various ports of call.

Somehow I suspect #s 2 and 3 will be popular with lots of people


For something more serious:
1) To get Israelis and Palestinians to stop killing each other
2) To get Bush out of office
3) To have all the weapons of mass destruction in the world disappear, and the knowledge of how to make them be erased from everybody's minds.

For something more frivolous
1) To never have another "when will NW retired their DC-9s?" thread started
2) To never have another Israel thread started
3) To send attack dogs to the houses of people who try to start such threads

And for ConcordeBoy:

1) AF announces new service
2) AF announces that the new service will be to MSY
3) AF announces that the new MSY flights will be with the 340.  Big thumbs up

More possibilities will follow as I think of them.

Cheers,

Mir

Surprised not one person has wished for this yet....


Happiness.


You get that wish, the rest doesn't really matter. There are plenty of miserable rich people and very content 'poor' people. I have a friend, a girl, that tries to fill a void with material things. It doesn't work. Money alone won't solve your problems, though I want money as much as the next guy.

But, if one wish were to be answered, and it was happiness, well that'd be okay with me.

Of course I want lots of money, a beautiful, sexy, trustworthy woman, and the ability to fly more than just my rented Cessna around. And a new liver, considering the copious amounts of alcohol I consume  Smile

On a related note, here's a joke:

A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown
ostrich behind him. As he sits, the waitress comes over and asks for
their orders.

The man says, "I'll have a hamburger, fries and a
coke," and turns to the ostrich, "What's yours?"
"I'll have the same," says the ostrich.

A short time later the waitress returns with the
order.
"That will be $6.40 please," and the man reaches
into his pocket
and pulls out the exact change for payment.

The next day, the man and the ostrich come again
and the man says,
"I'll have a hamburger, fries and a coke," and the
ostrich says,
"I'll have the same."

Once again the man reaches into his pocket and pays
with exact change.

This becomes a routine until late one evening, the
two enter again.

"The usual?" asks the waitress.
"No, this is Friday night, so I will have a steak,
baked potato
and salad," says the man, "same for me," says the
ostrich.

A short time later the waitress comes with the
order and says,
"That will be $12.62." Once again the man pulls
exact change
out of his pocket and places it on the table.

The waitress can't hold back her curiosity any
longer.

"Excuse me, sir. How do you manage to always come
up with the
exact change out of your pocket every time?"

"Well," says the man, "several years ago I was
cleaning the
attic and I found an old lamp. When I rubbed it a
Genie
appeared and offered me two wishes.

My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for
anything,
I would just put my hand in my pocket and the right
amount of
money would always be there."

"That's brilliant!" says the waitress. "Most people
would wish
for a million dollars or something, but you'll
always be as rich
as you want for as long as you live!"

"That's right. Whether it's a gallon of milk or a
Rolls Royce,
the exact money is always there," says the man.

The waitress asks, "One other thing, sir, what's
with the ostrich?"

The man sighs, pauses, and answers,

"My second wish was for a tall chick with long legs
who agrees with everything I say."

Ok, then my #3 wish right now would be for all of my hopes and dreams in life to come true.
