Say You Found A Magic Lamp...

Sat Oct 14, 2006 9:31 am

... and this lamp had a genie, and said genie offered to grant you one, and only one wish.

What would you wish for?

You know this is very interesting.
Maybe my reaction belongs in another thread but here it goes:

Some people are going to think greedy (like myself)
Some people are going to try and be worldly and hope for peace, ending world hunger etc.
Some people are going to try something in between.

The thing that I have a problem with in this is that I firmly believe nothing lasts forever.

Ex. Even though my voice and image have been broadcast into the 'heavens' (TV news interview), there is no reason for me to believe that those 'radio' waves will last 'forever'. I think the universe will collapse on itself eventualy and everything (Including those radio waves) will become a singularity resetting the life process for another several trillion years or so.

That being said I would wish the following:
1) No one in my blood line (myself included) could die of natural causes or disease before the 5th birthday of their great grand child (or grand niece/nephew).
2) I wish myself and my family eternal wealth
3) I wish every being that percieves myself and family members percieve us as nothing but intelligent and reasonably giving people.

No, it does work, unless the genie is a legally prepared to give out free wishes - if the genie doesn't put a disclaimer out, then AsstChiefMark or whoever can wish for infinite wishes.

You know if I was to ask for instance that I'd like a big house with loads of pretty girls and cars etc... then I'm pretty sure at some point in the future I would get sick of it, and then I'd wish that I had never wished for it in the first place.

So, if I had a Genie I'd just wish only to be happy and self contented. I don't care if I'm rich or poor, but so long as I'm happy throughout life that will do me, wherever life may take me.

You know, I used to think the perfect wish would be a time machine. But I've finally understood there's no point in wondering what would have happened if only I had done this, if only I hadn't said that, if only whatever... Like it or not, the past is gone and I can't change it.

So my wish would be to be happy with my life, take it in the direction I want, not worrying about all things past.
