RE: If you had three wishes .......
1. Immortality (no aging or injury)
2. The ability to travel through time
3. The ability to teleport

Those would make me able to live through all of Earth's history as much as I'd want, and travel to other planets to see other life forms evolve. I could guide the development of civilizations and, if I made a mistake, I could go back in time and fix it. I would be a god that no one knows about. I just like alternate histories, and what's better than actually creating one?

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.

RE: If you had three wishes .......
Here are my considered three:

1) Unlimited wealth

2) The ability to give (and withdraw) immortality and perfect health to anyone I deem fit (myself included)

3) The ability to travel unrestricted through time and space (and take others with me)

Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

RE: If you had three wishes .......
I only got one. To not wish I had any wishes. And lo and behold, my wish has been answered. Tongue

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

But that means you had a wish, which means you don't or didn't, which means ...

Does Girly sumo Girly.

Negation and self-reference have proved to be one helluva metaphysical bitch. Big Grin

Hmmm... Let's see, first, that all the rivers are now whiskey. Then, that all the seas are now whiskey. The last one... the last one... Ah fuck it, give me one more bottle of whiskey. Smile

Seriously, I'd wish for Zefram Cochrane to be born already and that he makes that first warp jump next year. This will, of course, start the whole Star Trek era...

Second one would be my own Romulan science warbird with Romulan and Reman crew.

Third one would be left for the encounter with the Q.

Smile

With my first wish I would save the whole planet Earth. Look how unselfish I am.

If I was feeling vindictive I would wish for;

1) Earmuffs to never be able to have honey chicken noodles again.

2) Ferdinand to have a giant bucket of chicken that was perpetually just out of her reach.

3) A2's balls to never drop.

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
