Make a wish. Then discuss. It can be anything, but try not to be offensive. Similar to "3 wishes," but a bit more freeform.


I wish Peter Jackson would cancel the second movie after the Hobbit and focus on making the Hobbit alone.

I agree with you on that, IG. I can't believe New Line wanted a second film done... they just want to make more money.

I wish I can get at least a 4 on the AP Calc BC ap test coming up on Wednesday.

Exactly. Mine starts a week from now, but all of the finals are very painful. ._.

I don't think wishing you didn't have diabetes is emo. I think that's a perfectly reasonable wish.

An emo wish would be like 'I wish the razors would finally cut that vein...sigh...', followed by drooping your bangs over your eyes. Get a hair cut, hippy.

Nope, I noticed a 'related video' of it on youtube and that got me interested so I started doing some reading. Apparently there was a Thrash Pack you could download for Rock Band that had a song each of The Haunted (bleh), Evile (wewt) and At The Gates (double wewt). Also, apparently you can also get the whole Priest album, Screaming for Vengeance. :eyeraise: I'm as surprised as you.

Screaming for Vengeance caught me off guard too, as they said that the first full cd they'd put up was either Nirvana or The Who.

Caught me off guard, but as soon as I pay off some other things I'm gettin it, so wewt :)

Hello,

I'm from the djinn alliance and I'm here to inform you that your 'wish for more wishes' has caused our wish contract to become null and void and we will be stripping you of any said wishes obtained.

Thank you for your interest,
Wishmaster

Ridiculous! You said no such thing in the ToS! I'm taking you to court!

Det. Bart Lasiter
05-07-2008, 11:52 AM
Technically, you can't take them to court since your contract wasn't the one being voided. If you really want to sue them, I suggest trying to fail all of the classes you wished to pass. Bottomline: hit on a teacher and have a friend tape it and upload it to YouTube.

This wish is entirely futile, given the fact that I've already given everyone unlimited wishes. As you can see in my starting post: "Similar to '3 wishes,' but a bit more freeform." <- Me.
The object of this decision was to encourage posters to wish for things they really want, instead of having to compress all of their wishes into three overarching ones that usually boil down to superficial desires based on pleasure or status such as "invincibility," "money," and/or "loss of virginity."
But since you went out of your way to be a smarty and "beat the system," I hereby deplete your number of wishes to zero as a consequence.

Aye. That be so. They be awesome. Although, people don't get hammered during the short festivity, but rather before it and after. At least I haven't seen people openly drinking during them. They're too busy tying people up into things with duct tape and zip ties during the school hours before heading off in their 60's lorries :P

I wish I ruled the world. That's reasonable, no?
<.<

No, but seriously speaking, I wish I could manage a trip to Norway this summer to meet a certain someone in my life. It's been way too long. If not, I wish she could manage a trip to Finland.


EDIT: Also, I wish for a 125cc Honda Shadow and a license to drive it :D

Wish that school was just over. I don't want to deal with the absolute torrent of crap I'm going to have to do in the next three weeks. A five page essay, a final project, poem to memorize, read LotR in two weeks, write eight more mini-essays, study for half a dozen large tests, memorize every Amendment of the Constitution, about 120 questions of statistics at 5 to 10 minutes each long, a presentation, a thank-you note, a video to shoot and edit, and any homework, notes, quizes, tests, etc that come up randomly...

I wish I am able to make it through this week successfully, and learn to manage my time effectively (which means that I feel confident in my usage of study time and that I studied well for everything).

I also wish I get an A on this last CS&E quiz I took. For being such an extreme computer geek, I do poorly on these quizzes (Microsoft Office Excel/Access 2007 stuff which you can learn in one second, but is presented in the worst way on these quizzes - the questions must have been written by someone who didn't know English...).

I also wish that I find some gal for myself...or that a previous gal opens up her mind on dating issues (she won't date non-Christians...).

I know plenty of people like that.

I understand how you must feel, but I think I can sympathize this one here. Christianity, for most people, is more than just a religion - its a lifestyle, and they want to be in a relationship with someone who holds a similar lifestyle and philosophy.

I too know several like this. I can understand her, but I am staunchly against such ways of thinking. IMO, if you think like her you are in reality afraid to confront a fear, and unwilling to fight an "obstacle" and try something new, which (again, IMO), makes you a much lesser person.

But in reality, even if she did learn to think correctly (because, regardless of if everyone on the planet is against my on this - that is a bad and incorrect way of thinking), I haven't socialized enough with her since last year, and I had given up earlier (stopped feeling "it"), yet I'd jump up at any possibility of something between us.
