If I had three wishes they would be:

1. To be able to fall asleep when I want to for as long as I want to (with the emphasis being on WHEN I want to). It is 1:30 a.m. and all I am wishing for is to fall asleep! Please, let me fall asleep!

2. To be able to take a comfortable and healthy s h i t every morning;

3. Three more wishes.

What would you wish for?

Cheers

I know what you mean about the ability to sleep. I jut got up after about 4hrs. of it...think it's still due to the chemo drugs and radiation.

I only have one wish...and that is to beat the cancer I've been fighting and for the world to find a cure and be rid of it once and for all.

Just one of four people I know who are currently fighting this disease. Two have just recently gotten the one year and still clear check-up. For you and Bill will add my first wish onto yours.

Lots of money and the good health to make it worthwhile. Plus the usual infinite wishes.

An infinite supply of money. With that, you can fix everything else.

Someone else could have the other two wishes.

Sorry folks Genies don't allow one of the wishes to be more wishes. Just one of the rules. ;):D:lmao:

1. To be able to control my own mortal self (even to the sub-atomic level, cell regeneration).
2. To know and understand everything known to mankind (mathematics, sciences, languages).
3. To use that knowledge unselfishly to further the human race.

I think that'll cover any scenario in/of my life.

Sorta like the movie "Limitless (2011)" but bettter.

I'm with you. Keep up the fight!

Unfortunately, I don't think there will ever be "a" cure for cancer. Cancer is a catch-all term for so many different pathologies resulting from so many different causes that I don't think we'll ever find one approach that effectively cures them all. That is not to say I don't think we can cure any of them; we've already cured some, we can effectively treat many others, and we're working hard on finding new approaches to the ones we don't have a lever on.

My own research is directly relevant to this fight, and I'm optimistic that the advances we're making in understanding the abnormal cell biology underlying many of the pathologies collectively called 'cancer' will lead to clinically applicable treatments, and hopefully even cures, in the near future. But I think some forms of cancer will be with us for a long time to come.

Good point bryan.

I'd wish for a genie in every home.

However, it might be a diaper genie.

Keep up the good fight kps!

Thanks for the wishes everyone, here's hoping that all your wishes come true...genie or no genie.

Hey tilt...you'll always be a good genie in my books.

My 3 are....

1. A cure to Crohns Disease. Well make that all autoimmune diseases.

2. The ability to reach into my pocket and always have enough money for what I want.

3. Hmm I think I'll save that one for a rainy day...

1. I wish for World Peace, just like Madonna, in big letters on a million+ dollar portable stage.

2. I wish I could count better.

Careful—that's what Jafar wished for too.

I think I'd spend the first wish by wishing for the wisdom to be able to know how best to use the remaining two wishes. Obviously that precludes my specifying how I'd use the second and third wish, but they'd be good.

In other words, I wish to avoid having to make a decision......?
