Interests
Just musing on a popular theme in fantasy.... but I was wondering what other people would actually wish for? 

For example, there's the sudden-wealth option...   how would the genie provide this these days?  Cave of gold (suddenly driving down the international value and creating a bunch of nosy governmental questions about how YOU got it?) Or just providing the number to the next major lottery win? 

There's the aspect of health...  A big fave of mine...  does this reset the clock biologically?  Also I wonder if there's trade-offs?  For example, the genes that cause me to be diabetic... are they linked to anything else I might not like to give up? Hmmmmm....  how would wone explain the sudden new you?  Especially the fact that one is more energetic, 56 lbs lighter, six inches taller and with a noticeable bulge (or bulges, depending on gender) and perfect teeth since yesterday?     (yes, I know, true health is not that shallow, but I'm playing balance of probabilities, here... besides, who knows what my body might have been like without past injuries, poor diet or health care issues?) :shrug:

Or the real biggie - MAKING A PERFECT WORLD ... oh ****, NOW we're talking major chaos...  the ability to change other people's lifepaths, bring peace to the Middle East and create a Utopia...   Playing God, in other words.  Let's just hope the cheerful little vermin of ISIS don't find any funny lamps while they're busy looting their way across Syria...  yeah.  The Prime Directive is kinda my Rubicon.  I don't think I could begin to try to unilaterally mess with overall civilizations, no matter how screwed up they are.  I can see this happening as part of a large evolutionary process (WW2, the Cold War, etc.) between nations and societies... but I couldn't take charge enough to wish that people begin or discard belief systems, adopt or abandon fossil fuel and meat consumption or alter the structure of governments world wide, just because that would make me happy....  I'm not George Soros.

So, what would be YOUR three wishes?   Robin Williams rules, no bringing people back from the dead, no making people fall in love and IXNAY on the wishing for more wishes....  :)
