    You've Been Granted Three Wishes

    And you can't ask for more wishes. What would your wishes be?

    First wish-- to, at a later time of my choosing, go back in time before actually exercising any of the three wishes, that I might execute them again. Use the remaining two on any given pass-through according to whimsy.

    First wish would be to definitely be fix all my health and physical pain problems. I think I'd have to word that carefully. I don't want to end up with that disorder where you can't feel pain.

    After that, I have no clue.

    1. I wish for infinite wishes.


    *Teacher voice* I wasn't asking.

    Expelled. Punishment is three years in Rajah's alleged huge vagina. Enjoy.

    1) To be granted a Trillion in cash, British Sterling. Be sure not to drown me in it, you can dump it in the back garden.

    2) Extend my life expectancy to 200 years, with the aging process slowed down proportionally.

    3) Return the Earths oceans to the state they were in two centuries ago.


    There, now I think I have everything I need to alter the course of human history.

    1) On death, my consciousness (memories + experiences) is transferred into (effectively taking over) the bodies of two healthy adults
    2) Every time one of these copies dies, the process is repeated, ad infinitum
    3) Every copy contains the additional memories/experiences of all predecessors

    Others have basically said it already:

    Use each wish to ask for three more wishes.

    Repeat.

    That's capitalism
