The only restriction is ..... no wishing for more wishes.

Everything else is fair game.

So, how do use one wish?

1 trillion dollars in my savings account.

Can't buy you happiness, but "unlimited" wealth would open up a ton of doors for me, and I could live with that and worry about the rest at my leisure. ;)

Let's see- Love or Money? The Beatles say money can't buy you love but I'd be willing to test that theory. If nothing else it'll help me pay off the divorce settlements!

Same. Not only would it secure anything you'd want for yourself and family, but there would be so many opportunities to help others. I'd start in Africa...

No the correct reply Pig Nash would of been something more like

"well the chicks that would double up on a guy like me do"

Personally, I would wish to start over at about 5 yrs. old, but know everything that I do now. But, really how can anyone not wish to fix the world in some major way?

Yeah.... but then you'd already be out of wishes before you could actually wish for more wishes.

Then I wouldn't need any more wishes.

I would wish for democracy and equal opportunity for every person in the world.

It's even better to wish for every person to have the ability to help themselves than it is to wish for money to help them.

Eh, I was just trying a good guy, a good guy that someone would wish that I could have more wishes...

It would be quite the task, but you'd need money to do it... Not "democracy" or "equal opportunity." Money improves infrastructure, money improves aid and health relief efforts, and money can be used to buy out the imperialistic corporations (from industrialized nations) taking advantage of the people. I'd only start in Africa, I'd move to the Far East pretty quickly after that.

What good is the money if the people you are trying to help have no freedom to take advantage of it? You need both in the end, but one has to come first.

Honestly I'd love to discuss this further with you, but we should probably refrain from getting into the political disaster that is Africa.

Agreed. That is most definitely UnPD territory. It's way more complex than just needing money or freedom.

I was thinking immortality, but what if something horrible happened to me and I didn't want to live anymore?

Hmm...invulnerability? At least I'd get to do pretty much whatever I wanted before I died.

I think the unlimited tax free wealth would be my way to go. Might not be full happiness but with unlimited money I wouldnt have to work at any crap jobs, I could buy the Knicks and start buying me some championships and hire someone to murder Isiah Thomas for what he did to the team.

I'd probably request that all humans become literal empaths. Or at least that we could have some kind of instinctive sense of how our actions affect everyone else, like a part of ourselves that constantly considers the whole just as compulsively as we consider the "self" (go introspective, worry about our individual lives) right now.

Unfortunately I would have to go along with the Hicks line of thinking and take the trillion. I could do a lot of good with that. My daughter once told me if I was rich I would end up being the poorest rich man that ever lived.

if i were to be the one that granted wishes...i would wipe out everything you could think of wishing for...instead of giving them to you....

guess i'd be more of a devil instead of a genie...


if i were to wish...I'd go with healthy life - even if you got the trillion dollars..its nothing without proper health....and considering i'm always bogged down by either allergies in summer or the cold in winter...i'd be a happy man :D

Money? Really?

Yall are weird. No one wants to fly? Wants all their friends and family to never get sick? Wants to be like heywoode? Meet the love of your life? World peace? Your daughter to be President? Salma Hayek to be madly in love with you? She's rich already...what you need a trilly for if her or Megan Fox just has an uncontrollable desire to make their entire life about making you happy?

Yeah, but if I'm a trillionaire, I could buy the CW, cast myself in the next 90210 and have women tripping over me and guys hating me Adam Duritz-style. Obscenely rich Celene Dion married her producer...I think I could pull some hot celebs with the humanitarian gig.

That being said...I'm leaning towards being like Hancock. Having ultimate superpowers without a weakness and, if I so choose, I can be human and spend the rest of my life with Charlize Theron. And with the PR gig, I could probably make millions on ads, etc and still cast myself in the next 90210.

Of course, I wouldn't mind spending my life like Vinnie Chase either.

Why not just wish for Africa to turn into Strawberry Shortcakeland then? You can't solve all those problems with money. You could with a well-worded wish.

I still just want my Perfect Eternal Afterlife. Lot easier to have perfection when you start from scratch.

World peace might result in mass starvation, you might found out you hate Salma Hayek or Megan Fox once you get to know 'em and then you end up spending the rest of your life in prison as a wife-killer, your daughter-to-be-President might be assassinated . . .

Nope - give me my afterlife.

Money can't buy you happiness, so that is out!

My ex's have been miserable, so wishing for a woman doesn't make much sense.

I am happy with my career, so everything is good there.

Ahhh heck with it, Indiana Pacers 2008-09 NBA Champs, that is my wish.
