You find a genie lamp while you are walking one day. There is a note attached. The note warns you that the genie is known to trick people, but has also granted wonders one can only dream of. You are granted one wish and ONLY one wish. Would you take the wish or leave it? If you do take it, what would you wish for? The wording must be precise or you may get undesirable results.

I would hire a lawyer to make sure I closed any loopholes.

I put it back where it is, my grammar is a nightmare, let someone jack their lives up.

I would wish for 50 billion dollars, obtained through legal means with no negative consequences for myself or anyone I care about, see its all one wish and covers my ass.

@wildvine: See if your wish includes the no negative consequences clause then it would effectively neutralize the bad possibilities

But then you become so bored of being rich after a few years that you become depressed.

Boom. Rich guy suicide.

Genie cackles in his alternate dimension. One down. 7 billion to go.

Nope. He would get around that somehow.

@innervenom123: If I couldn't find things to amuse myself for the rest of my life with 50 billion dollars then I'm not creative enough to live any way.

You need to specify every detail. Who's definition of negative consequences? It won't affect anyone you care about when? In the past, present or future? You could have legally stolen 50 billion from your future wife's father meaning they will become homeless. You two would have never been married and you would have wed the other girl who's greedy psycho brother kills you on your honeymoon. Something crazy like that would possibly happen. This genie was made to find ways to use your wording against you.

I would go to the store, buy a tablet and wish that the tablet be given the power to produce whatever I write or draw on it, to the specification of my desire.

I would then test it on something small, insignificant and go from there.

Still, my luck I would die from an infected papercut.

"I wish I could manipulate and control time-space and energy with my own thought alone at my own free will and free intellect which could not be removed or destroyed through any act of my or anyone else's manipulations unless I, myself, specifically set out to destroy my own will and intellect."

I think that pretty much is ironclad omnipotence ^.^

" I wish for Unlimited wishes from you that cannot be twisted in any way"

Or it could be " I wish that i had the power to grant any wish to myself or others without the negative consequences of being a genie "

Or the most impossible " I wish i had a girlfriend "

Awwhahawwwahw

I would wish that everyone else's wishes ever were revoked, voided, nullified, reversed and that no wishes could ever be made again.

Take that Make a Wish Foundation little brats.

I'd take the wish and I'd wish for unlimited wishes, one of which I'd use to eliminate the possibility of negative consequences pertaining to any and all of my wishes.

I'd want the genii to look like this:

Simple as that.
