I'm not doing that meme. I'll forget, and I ramble on about myself enough anyway. Instead, here's a question for you.

One morning, you find a genie in your cornflakes. Best free gift ever. The genie says you can have 3 wishes, but there are some conditions.

1. You can't wish for world peace or repair the environment or anything like that.
2. You can't make anyone fall in love with you or otherwise mess about with anyone's emotions.
3. You can't have eternal life. That would be daft.
4. You can't wish for more wishes. This genie isn't a sucker. Three, tops.

Oh, and one more thing. You probably shouldn't trust genies, especially the ones that come free in the cornflakes so you have to be clear.

Go. :)

Pretty base, but I'd wish for there to be never anything less than £1bn in my bank account, no matter how much I spend. And I'd get back to him for the other 2 wishes once I'd figured out what it is exactly that money can't buy. But I think I'd be able to sort myself out with yachts, houses, 3-star dinners, etc on the basis of the first wish.

Oh yeah, brilliant, that would almost definitely be No.2!

I'm with the bunch of money thing too - so I can do exactly what I was going to do anyway, but *much faster*.

Can i wish for another genie that isn't such a douche?

I can't wish for world peace? :(

Why not?

Can I wish to end world hunger instead? Or would that come under repairing the enviroment? Or would the genie just wipe out half the population to solve the problem? Hmm would I mind that? No probably not... Ah! I got it! World domination, in a very pink way. then I could solve the problems such as world peace and world hunger without the genie being pissed about it.
I think then I would have to wish to be the greatest inventor that ever lived.
And then I would invent a Time Machine and go back in time to stop wars, kill Hitler etc. ( Why has no one made a movie about that yet?)
Not sure what I would do with the third wish.

The kill Hitler Paradigm is quite a tricky one....What could have happened. Did he accidentaly wipe out some of the greatest minds or some of the worst and most evil people the world has never seen ??? Was it all part of a greater plan for mankind, can good come from atrocity, it really is a *huge* can of worms and probably a tetchy subject for far too many people, particularly holywood and its safe money making potential.

I'd like to be perfectly healthy, never feel tired, never be overweight, never catch stuff.. if I get hurt then I would heal really quickly.

If we're talking fantasy levels of wishes, then it would really be for some sort of regeneration a la Wolverine or something ;)

1. The jackpot winning numbers for the next Euromillions double-rollover that would otherwise not have a jackpot winner.

2. That all aspects of my health would improve significantly day-on-day, until there was no further improvement to be had without breaking records.

#3 will hold for a rainy day.

Actually, #3 should be for the intellect, wisdom and talent to succeed at whatever I turn my mind to. That, along with the lottery money, should allow me to handle most further wishes on my own :)

1. fuckin superpowers. invincibility etc.
2. The power to regenerate when I die, like doctor who.
3. not to be allergic to peanuts. I want to know what they taste like without my tongue becoming a land whale in my face.
