If people here have 3 or 4 wishes, what will they be? If we all found a genie lamp.

This is not a criticism


And, based on your answer, you sound more wise, caring, and selfless than me



Please do not take this the wrong way but

"Fair" according to whose standards and in what way


"Life" is not "fair"


Health, luck, personality, intelligence


Some precious lil "people",,, have a natural inherent , competitive disadvantage at survival of the fittest



This is not :evil: discrimination :twisted:


Racism sexism homophobia fatophobia classism lookism ableism



Skinny smart handsome cisgender neurotypical extrovert white man


:cry:


Just because someone "hurts", does not mean that someone violated their "right"


Anyone could "hurt", for any reason or no reason


Everything either :heart: :skull: helps :skull: "hurts" :skull: both or neither

You can't guarantee just the first one s**t


For example when I got a buzz cut , I "hurt" some lil dipshits' eyeballs


It does not matter that they were homophobic


They were "hurt"


What kind of "comfort" do you propose giving them?


If you cure all illness, the entire medical industry gets less $$$

Unemployed

Then they "hurt"



It is not happening or possible, to satisfy all seven billion precious lil "people",,, at the same time

In response to SF Man,

Fair, so that good people don't suffer. I know that leads to defining "good", but for now that will suffice.

Illness, whether physical or mental. We can all pass peacefully in our sleep with no torment in our lives.

Comfort, according to whatever would help others feel loved, protected, valued and supported.

Hurt, meaning any type of enduring pain, physical or emotional which burdens a person's life.

Of course it's subjective and open to interpretation, but the universe seems too freaking cruel at times.

Are there any limitations? Like in Aladdin, "I won't kill anyone", "I won't make anyone fall in love" and... was there a third one? Not allowing to wish more wishes is a pretty common rule, too.

Anyway, first would be to be and stay in perfect health; that would get me rid of my physical disability, too. Of course, I could wish this for everyone (I'd cause a mass unemployment for doctors and nurses lol), but I don't think that'd cross my mind at that moment.

Second... I would want some interesting job I could handle without trouble that paid enough for me to live very comfortably.

Third... hmm... maybe I'd wish for the law of karma to actually work? As in, right after my wish every time someone did something morally wrong, something would come and bite them in the backside very soon. Hopefully, the "morally wrong" would go through my definitions since I made the wish.

For everyone to always be healthy and happy.

To be able to take the shape of a dragon at will. Or heck, why not wish for full-on shapeshifting, because I can?

To be able to speak normally whenever I want to - no selective mutism or speech issues.
