Total fantasy world I would love to traverse into other dimensions. For true life a woman to share life.

Since I am not a believer in magic, it would have to be something someone could actually provide. So, I would ask every Multi-Billionaire on Earth to give 1 Billion Dollars to provide clean drinking water, education and an end to poverty worldwide. Oh, wait that would need magic to loosen the purse string of those greedy fucks.

Magic, it exists! See the Bill and Malinda Gates Foundation - [gatesfoundation.org] It currently has an endowment of more than $40 BILLION dollars. That mostly comes from Gates and Buffet and a couple other big money donors. That is $40 Billion in the bank today after spending billions already on vaccines, safe water, education, poverty reduction, and similar projects. Too bad they are not the rule, though.

i was thinking something similar!

I like that idea. πŸ™‚

That the White House fall into a sink hole with no survivors.

@geko Yes, lets keep the house itself, but offload that crap ton of bullshit currently in it. We will need fumigators and dump trucks for sure.

President dtRumpf convicted of Treason.

And then we'd have Pence.... which may be more terrifying.

And his entire administration, including Pence. And most of the Republicans in the House and Senate.

Agreed!

Do you know the winning mega million lottery numbers for tomorrow and can I have them. Lol.

That's two!!

@Captnron59 Lol. "Yes, I do know the numbers for tomorrow. Now... be gone!"

I'd wish climate change to end.

Depends on whom you are asking... If it is the universe, world peace.... If it is the guy at the package store, free Crown Royal for life...lol.... Little bit of a spread there, but I'm flexible....

It’s all about your perspective, right?

@Alliegirl Exactly.... The ability to make compromise is the key to a happy life...lol...

$62,000 to pay off my student loans.

Isn’t that insane to get an education? A pharmacist I work with told me that she and her husband pay $1200 a month on student loans. I was flabbergasted. Good luck. πŸ™‚

I no longer ask.....I just Do It!

Great attitude!

Tempting question and I think it depends on the circumstances. Today, because my health sucks and no amount of money or anything else will enhance my life more than health--I would ask for good health for the rest of my life.

lerlo Level 8 Mar 10, 2018

It is a sad fact that for many it is not until health is lost that they realise how important it is. Some years ago I ceased to sign off correspondence with "your faithfully or sincerely". Now I use my own device: "I hope that the Companions of Health, Peace and Fulfilment travel with you throughout your life."

Good answer
Sorry about your health

Xmas 1979, a New-York radio asked the British ambassador what he would most like for xmas. It being not too long since watergate etc. the ambassador thought about it and asked for something small just in case. The next day they reported " We asked all the ambassadors what they would most like for xmas. The Indian Ambassador asked for an end to poverty, the Chinese world peace, whilst the British ambassador asked for a pipe and a new pair of slippers "

I tried, but I got nuthin

You've already got paradise @Rugglesby! The only thing that you are missing is an accommodating woman.

@FrayedBear you are right. things are pretty good here, I can't see me leaving any time soon.

Tele-transport to go to lunch w/you!

Aww. Sweet. πŸ™‚

A new set of lungs, not just a transplant but real new ones.

How long do matched transplants last and how far are they off perfecting a blood oxygenator that can be worn on the wrist?

@FrayedBear Some have lasted 10 years , about 25% lasts 5 years, it really depends on best donor match. They have experimented with animals and had some success with oxygenated blood but not long lasting results. It's most likely long time before human use. I'd put money on stem cells first, there's even a procedure now that gives some good results using your own stem cells,but it's expensive and not Medicare approved. I heard $25,000 cost.

@buzz13 The only person I know off with similar problem is the great English fiddle player Dave Swarbrick (Fairport Convention, Martin Carthy, Alistair Hulett and other folk musicians). I'm not sure if he is still alive not having corresponded now for some years - No he sadly died in 2016 Dave Swarbrick - Wikipedia [en.m.wikipedia.org] . There is a Swedish chap who runs an organisation called Breatheology who may be able to give you some benefit. There are lots of YouTube videos and talks -

I wish I had the power to make that a reality. πŸ™‚

One billion dollars deposited into my bank account and an excellent accountant, please.

Money was my first thought. And then someone ruined the moment by mentioning world peace. I guess I t should have thought of that too.

you'd be dead in a year !

@markdevenish But it will be one hell of a year!

@TerriCity I saw that too. Perhaps with my money I can aid in attempting world peace?

more time

Another god question.

Money, money, money. Not for me, but for my children.

For myself? Get out of debt

Agreed. Love to know how that feels. πŸ™‚

Unconditional love

#MagicPudding

Interesting...not sure I β€œget it” must reflect further. @FrayedBear

A space for a juggle club near me. Every American with over 100 million dollars to redistribute 1 million dollars to the poor as a UBI.

Lauxa Level 5 Mar 10, 2018

What is a "juggle club" and UBI?

A foolproof plan and an airtight alibi.

I'm in.

Ownership of Microsoft and Amazon

Got aspirations like Gates to right the world's wrongs?

not really, u can't fix the world. i just want all the profits they make.

The sanity of my late wife.

If the question is what would I ask for personally in my life, that would definitely be true love. A companion I could count on to always be there, have my back. Honest, loyal and loving. If I were asking for all of humanity, it would be to cut our military budget by 60%, and use the extra money strictly for cancer research.

Can we get serious about climate change already?

no

I no longer wish for impossible, so practically I would ask to be debt free with enough money to put a downpayment on a modest home.

Very modest. Even more feasible if you pioneered and built your own dwelling.

@FrayedBear I am 50 years old with neck and shoulder issues, I doubt I could learn enough carpentry or be strong enough to build a house.

@Nemeister A problem. I was in the process of making myself a mobile home when some mother's child did a hit and run on me leaving me for dead in the road. Bang went that plan and home of the previous six years.

@FrayedBear I'm sorry 😟 That's horrible!

@Nemeister C'est la vie. Not your child nor you.
