    Immortality would suck. you'd be alive for the world ending (when the sun grows to a Red Giant) and would just float about in space until either A) the universe ends or b) you land on another planet and the whole cycle repeats :p :lol:

    i've been watching too many cartoons, and "Aladin" was one of my nephews favorites for a while, so my first question to the genie would be:
    "what happens to you after i make my wish?"
    then i think i'd just set him free from his wishgranting prison, if that is what he wants.
    then i'd have a genie for a gratefull friend.

    other then that, i'd want to be "an all powerfull sorcerer".
    you know, carry a staff/wand to basicaly manipulate the universe in any way i see fit.
    i'd keep the fact that i'm allpowerfull secret for as long as i could i think.
    first spell i'd figure out how to use would be the "live for as long as you want" one. i agree that imortality might be too much. i just want to be immortal till i decide, i've had enough.

    i think i could spend quite a lot of time (like a couple hundred years) doing "clean up" on the weekends to keep from being bored. i'd go to nuke weapon stockpiles, and launch em up into the sun (by magic, not by their own power, dont want some mishap or faulty rocket to make a nuke fall back to earth)

    wouldn't mind control also suck a bit? You'd be constantly bombarded by other people's thoughs, and some not-too-pleasant ones.

    I'd wish people thought more about others than they did about themselves. More as in "more than now". This way maybe we could solve our problems....

    I'd wish for eternal recurrence. That the universe should go on for, say, 10^31 years, and then time loops back to the Big Bang, and it happens all over again, and again, and again. It's not immortality, but it's an endless supply of reincarnation.

    An existence without the fear and guilt I have grown to know, one without hatred and cruelty, one of heaven.

    haha, ok, sorry sharpe. what I meant to say was I wished for world peace, and happy flowers, and for people's farts to smell like roses, and for everybody to be in loooove!

    Im pretty content with life right now, i have a feeling that if i wished for something like world peace, id end up screwing everything up. But being able to dunk, that'd be pretty cool. Might help me get into college too

    hmmm, good point. maybe you could just have some form of mental ability when you can read peoples minds when you want rather than what I think happened to Mel Gibson in that film... What Women want or something...

    I'd quite like to be able to talk to and see God, but mainly just to settle the arguments in OT on whether or not He exists or not :lol:

    To be omniscient. But then of course I would come to the realization that I could have made a much better wish, but I blew it. :lol:

    Great answer :lol:


    Anyway, I'd wish that I could get more than 7 strikes in a row. Instead of always hitting 7 and going, "Huh, don't blow it," I'd get that 8th one!

    I would wish for a time machine! YES! I would go back and fight with Genghis Khan and tell the Germans how best to conquer the Soviet Union! I would kill Jesus prematurely and then come back to the future to see how the world would be without Christianity - that's interesting, no?
