Live Poll: If You'd Found a Genie, What Would You Wish For?

You just found a lamp with a genie inside, just like Aladdin did. What would be your wish?

You must be in love with Tom Hiddleston. Unfortunately the Genie can't make him fall in love with you, so you must find a way to earn him just as Aladdin did with Princess Jasmine.

Oh well, there's no law against hoping! In addition to looking gorgeous he is also an extremely gifted actor.

Yes, he's the most tolerable in the Thor movies.  Have you seen Cranford (or Return to Cranford)?

He is the most intresting character in MCU. I hope they'll bring him back for the series they preparing and not choose a different actor.

"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! NO, NO and NOOOO!"

Sorry for overreacting, but you have a terrific idea for a poll so why are you destroying it with the last wish which is "unlimited wish", there's got to be one rule which is not to pick that wish, because it ruins the purpose of the whole poll, if I want wealth, that's good but wealth and beauty are better.

Everyone is likely to pick the last option because it's the smartest move, so in the end we'll never know what everyone's secret wish would be.

If I had to pick one, it wouldn't be beauty but height, 4 more inches would be perfect, yeah, I'm not crazy about fame or money, 4 more inches and I'd be happy... maybe that goes with beauty but I think it's too broad for my wish, I might ask for beauty and look like Tom Cruise and for some reason, i'd still be p****** off.

Yes, Paok, I believe ElM is right... perhaps you could change the wording to, '100 More Wishes.'  That way you'd have to run out sometime!  
Opening a Jar... LOL!  :D

I was never that good with the pickle jar to begin with, I know many people dry their hands or use towels but I learned the trick, which is to take it upside down and hit the bottom several times with your palm, it worked 90% of the time... and that "PLOP" sound it makes when you open it (or when it decides to give up) is perhaps one of the most satisfying sounds ever... I feel like Popeye whenever I get it done.

Yeah, I usually use one of those jar opener things made of some kind of rubber or whatever, (you know, the rag-like things) but sometimes even that won't get the job done!  Will keep ElM's trick in mind!

Done. You are right, ''Unlimited wishes'' will ruin the poll.

Yes, the smell of a freshly opened bag of chips is delightful... but the sound is insane, especially if someone else is opening it, and you're trying to take a nap!  :D

That's because people try to do it as silently as possible and it makes it painfully slow and noisy... you've got to do it in one quick "craaaak"... and try not to get them all over the floor. 

Funny you didn't mention the possibility of that thing happening in a movie theater, I guess that's because by the time the film finally starts, all the bags have been opened. I remember once I had the time to eat half the bag of M&Ms during the film's opening logos.

Haha!  Yeah, usually at theaters people have opened their snacks before the movie... it's just the people coughing, talking loud, getting up and down, and dropping snacks you have to worry about, now!  I understand that nobody's perfect, and people will make some noise at the show... but c'mon!  You don't have to verbally react to every line of dialogue that is said at the top of your lungs!  
"Ooh!"   "Whoa!"   "Ha ha!"   "Jeez!"   "What?"   "Aw, cool!"  *etc*

Alb, since you're beautifully fluent in at least two, and I can't seem to get past an elementary understanding of anything but English, if you were to be granted languages, would you share it with me? : )

Oh, and I love your suggestions! I was just wishing for time travel, in fact, lol. 'Great minds think alike. : )

Don't worry Ruby, I'd wish for 10 trillion Dollars and buy a time freezer with that. Then we both use it to learn all the languages we want in an instant.

PK,

If I have three wishes, for my first wish, I would wish for the great wisdom and other resources necessary to wisely use (or not use) my remaining two wishes. The remaining two wishes would be heavily contingent on the result of my first wish.

If I am limited to one wish, I would wish for the great wisdom and other resources necessary to wisely conduct the remainder of my life.

Nice, although there is the same problem as with love. There is 'outside' wealth that everyone can acknowledge, but the definitions of wisdom and love can only be found in each individual's mind and heart. They are often hard to grasp and are constantly evolving as your personality grows; I would even say you can't 'have' wisdom or love, you can only act them out.

If you wish for wisdom, you'll get wise enough to understand that it's unwise to wish for something else when you should be satisfied with what life gave to you or that the wisest move would be to transfer the right to have those wishes to people who "really" need it, either ways, you're going to wish nothing for you, which kind of cancels out the purpose of the wish.

I remember there were two things Aladdin genie could not grant. Make someone fall in love with you and bring people back from the death were two of them. Perhaps that's a good reason to remove them from your options.

As for Me, my first wish would be simply to achieve with complete success everything I decide to do in life. Having that I would use my next two wishes for the benefit of others.

Ooh, you're right - if the Genie can't do those things, they should not be on the list!  :)

Imagine that power: having the answer to every question.

- Does God exist?
- What would be the best solution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict?
- Who was behind the assassination of JFK?
- Where is the remote control?

I think that would be the thing I would ask for, it's worth everything. You can read in people's mind by asking the right question to yourself, you can use it to know how to behave in social instances and say the right thing at the right moment, you can win money from game shows, you can predict the future, you can find how to cure cancer, you can find the proper word, then the proper sentence and eventually write a book. It all comes down to asking the right question... you can even know which religion you should practice... or not lol.
