Wish granted. In order to ensure that ethanol preparations have no effect at all after the 2-3 hour buzz, including social effects and property damage caused by acting foolishly, you lock yourself alone in an otherwise empty room with an indestructible door on a 3 hour timer every time you're about to consume ethanol.

I wish that at midnight local time each day I was given the option, but not the obligation, to go back in time 24 hours and relive the day, with I alone and no one else retaining memories and records of that day's previous iterations. You know, so I never again have to fear deadlines.

Wish granted! You exercise this right 7 times in a row and wind up staying awake for a week straight. You collapse and die.

I wish I had a farm of 50 GPU's that are powered a solar system (with enough batteries to hold through the longest expected lulls in sun) owned all free and clear (no further costs or taxes). And a suitable internet connection to keep it fed with exponents.

Wish granted, you get from the internet (and do the work for) 50 composite exponents every day... you will get bored soon, and I wish you give me your computer farm when that happens :P

Wish granted. Unfortunately, out of frustration at being unable to find a prime, Uncwilly sabotages his farm, leaving you just a twisted heap of broken plastic and metal.

I wish to be Zeus.

Wish granted. You become the Zeus in God of War II.

I wish Intel and Microsoft had more love for DC enthusiasts.

(Could have been worse. You could have said God of War III. Besides, I think I could have handled that fight more intelligently.)

Wish granted. Intel's and Microsoft's CEOs show up to the next DC convention, are seized by uncontrollable lust, strip down naked, and . The few survivors are so traumatized, they jump off the nearest bridge.

I wish the following sentence were true: This sentence is false.

Wish granted. The word false has evolved to mean "short", which also screws up the term "false-positive".

I wish that I was fluent in every language and dialect.
Sidenote: I'm attempting (in my genealogical research) to determine whether I am related to Richard Stallman on grandfather's side.

Wish granted. A scorching sinus infection causes you to have a fluent discharge from the nose that is exacerbated by the mechanical motions of speaking regardless of language or dialect.

I wish governing was more efficient.
(what could possibly go wrong?)

A more efficient form of government is created. Big Brother's dictates are highly efficient. However you wind up in the memoryhole.

I wish that Åke Tilander finds a non-trivial factor of MM127 within the next month and that it becomes known to the world.

Wish granted. Unfortunately, a cult that vehemently believes that MM127 is prime starts causing chaos throughout the world.

I wish thermal cameras weren't ridiculously expensive.

Wish granted.

I wish I had a new Titan GPU... and the skill to write better programs on it.
