Probably somebody who can't use them. Maybe someone who's passed.

Well me, of course. Angel

And my first order of business would be to rid the Universe of evil. (Sorry Earth)

Can I assume that anyone liking my previous post is agreeing that they would want me to be the one with unlimited genie powers?

Nevermind, don't answer, I'll just assume it to be true.

How many votes do I need before I am conferred omnipotence, anyway?

RE: What type of person would you trust with godly powers?
My thinking is-

This person is in the position where they aren't held accountable to anyone.
No one can touch or phase this person (unless the person allows it).
No one can intimidate them physically or mentally.
There is nothing this person can't have, or experience.
There is no limit to the pain or pleasure this person can experience, or inflict.
There is nothing this person can conjure up or extinguish.

I'm confident there is a type of person - restrained, as well as imaginative, and empathetic to make the best use of the power.

Then that won't be a human being anymore. So the question is - does any one deserve such a thing (and I mean deserve as in deserve a punishment).

In what way? Someone showing restraint, imagination, and empathy? That's too much of a pessimistic view.

No, I didn't say this being would be worse/less than a human being. It just want be a human being anymore, as all those things he/she would be lacking or (having in addition) are what makes us human. We are imperfect, fallible and fragile and that's what makes as so fascinating.

But that is going off on a tangent and possibly not exactly pertinent.

I wouldn't trust anyone with godlike ability.
