There's a similar question that asks one wish, but one wish isn't enough, so I thought I would put my question with unlimited wishes.  Anything you want.  Wait until you see my answer.

Well, one of my unlimited wishes would be to have politicians who weren't crooks and liars.

Also, it would help if some of them weren't abject fools.

To be with someone who is very special to me

Money

Teleporters

Telekinesis powers

A new look

etc

(1) I want to be cured of my chronic problems, except for one.

(2) I want nudity to be legalized/accepted/normalized in public.  I'm talking non-sexual/casual nudity here.

(3) Assuming #1 fails to happen (since each year seems to always get worse than the previous year), then I want to meet any of my favorite celebrities before I die.

(4) I want illnesses/diseases/etc. to no longer exist.

(5) In relation to #4, no one would have to die, except by natural causes, like old age.  I'm talking >100 years old here.

(6) I want people to stop judging others that are different from themselves.

(7) I want all wars, violence, hate, crimes, etc. to stop.

(8) I want world peace.

Maybe there can be a seperate city for people who likes to be naked.

I would wish for the end of certain dictatorships and wish that countries that have always been kept down will be able to prosper. Oh...and yeah I'd wish for my own private house in the middle of the woods, that would be nice ;)

To be 21 years old forever

To have my own ice cream factory

Normal stuff.

I wish that my arms were about nine inches longer. That way I could change light bulbs without having to worry about falling off a ladder.

Of course, that would probably make me look like General Sheridan. Abraham Lincoln gave this unforgettable description of him: A brown, chunky little chap, with a long body, short legs, not enough neck to hang him, and such long arms that if his ankles itch he can scratch them without stooping.

Didge, it's remarkable that Lincoln should characterize Sheridan in such ape-like terms, as he himself had often been so ridiculed by his political enemies, e.g., "The obscene ape of Illinois..."

@Tink: And even today, in 2018, there's an ape in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. :)

TheOtherTink Didge Jan 1

I'd be surprised if the current ape ever comes up to the Illinois ape's standards.  :)

We have to give him credit for one thing though. He has improved the standing of some of his predecessors. We can no longer point out Reagan or George W Bush as being America's most unintelligent presidents.

That kind of comparison seems to have wide currency with our Presidents of late. This meme (and many like it) appeared after Obama took office:  :D

I gotta confess, I'll never understand the relationship between the party faithful and their politicians.

TheOtherTink Didge Jan 4

I think its a form of tribalism.  The "out" party faithful almost seem to wish for the "in" party to lead us to a disaster, the bigger the better.

Didge, well you always seem to have a knack for finding the bright side of things...:D ...I have not liked to see so many American citizens bashing our recent presidents, but this one is especially difficult for me to find a reason to respect!
