*The genie grins as he grants your wish.

" I give you the power of time control, but you can only go forward in time by one millionth of a microsecond."



I wish that I could fly.

*The genie clasps his hands together.

"You fool now you will feel my wrath! You may fly."

*pianoplayjl gets teleported 30,000 feet above the earth and then is left to fly free fall. He first shouts "weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" but then starts to scream in terror as he comes closer to the ground and..... splat!

*The genie raises an eyebrow

"So you have some interest in this creature? So be it!"

*rachmaninoff_forever's head vanishes from his body and replaces Valentina's. She is in a middle of a concert and stuffs up all the music. rachmaninoff_forever runs off the stage crying, but quickly realizes that he might want some time with himself.

I figure that no matter how screwed up he interprets them - chances are I'll get one of them just the way I want it.    ;)

All though, it does say a lot about how much free time lostinidlewonder has answering all these posts - not that we mind.     :)

* The Genie clicks his fingers instantly granting outin a wish. Outin falls to the floor as the humongous hands are too heavy to physically hold up.


I wish the genie a happy lunar new year.

* The Genie accepts j_menz hóngbāo (red envelope) and inside his all of his belongings and savings.

"It's not that a genie like myself needs such mortal belongings but at least you have nothing now."


I wish I could be a genie...

* The Genie laughs loudly as perfect_pitch is surrounded by a swirling thick black cloud.

"Puny mortal! Enjoy eternity as a Genie. I hope you find a good master!"

* The cloud vanishes and only a bottle remains, trapped inside perfect_pitch makes the best of it and fluffs up some pillows and gets comfortable. The genie picks up the bottle and effortless throws it into Space. Perfect_Pitch starts to get bored as the bottle leaves the solar system.

Okay - time to think like a lawyer...

I wish that the genie will grant my wish exactly as I ask without perversion, when I ask for a million Australian dollars, in non-sequential bills, which will be delivered to my door in a suitcase by a non-disgruntled delivery man - with no side-effects.

*The genie grants the wish. perfect_pitch hears a knock at his front door and he hesitantly opens it. He flinches expecting to die but instead there is a harmless delivery man holding his money in a sack that has a big $ sign on it. perfect_pitch cannot believe his fortune and starts counting the money to make sure it is all there. While doing so another knock comes to the door. perfect_pitch open the door and it is the police. The money was stolen and perfect_pitch spends 20 years in jail."
