Title: The Magical Genie Wish Granting Thread
Post by: Questing Character on August 17, 2004, 04:08:29 PM
Well, since I just noticed that I am a magical genie, I am starting this thread.  The rules:
1. Wish for anything to see if the Magical Genies will grant it!
[size=0]2. DO NOT wish for anything that cannot conceivably be granted via the Internet.
3. The Magical Genies reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
4. Void where prohibited.
5. Side effects include insanity.
6. By posting in this thread you acknowledge that you will not sue the genies for any reason ever.  Even if they run over your dog, total your car, or commit adultery with your significant other.[/size]

Hmmm...tough one.  I'm going to have to give some huge thought to my first wish... :P  Of course, the first thing I'd wish for can't be conceivably granted through the internet  XB

I wish I had a significant other than the genies could commit adultry with. :D

I think we're getting a bit away from "things that can conceivably be granted over the Internet". ;)

Of course, all my wishes are impossible ones even in real life, anyway. Like wishing I actually had some kind of creative talent. :P

Peace & Luv, Liz

Disney did well with Prince Eric!  Aladdin was nice, but I felt that it was wrong of him to continue to deceive Jasmine like that.  My theory--relationships based on lies only work in fairy tales...oh wait...Aladdin IS a fairy tale!

Personally, I'd rather marry the court minstrel. <3

Or I could marry the court jester, don a jingly hat of my own, and we'd make a smashingly bizarre duo! XD

Post by: Questing Character on August 20, 2004, 06:00:54 PM
Alright, I have decided to grant a few wishes here:
POOF!
A non-insanity inducing WabbaJack for LN!  HUZZAH!
Uhm, I'm afraid I don't actually *know* my height, but I can take a guess...
POOF!
5'7"ish.  Maybe.
Uhm, Rob, I'm afraid the best I can do is make you *feel* 16.
POOF!
Rob's voice now cracks when we talks to females, and he has lots of homework, is eager to drive, AND is nervous about college! :P

I can't grant any other wishes, I'm sorry.
Title: Re:The Magical Genie Wish Granting Thread

Thanks Q.

After a week or so, we'll know if the "non-insanity inducing" part works.  ;D

I don't think so.  In all the stories I've read, they've always been imprisoned by their lamps. :-\  If they could grant their own wishes, getting outta there would be the first thing they'd wish for!  ;P

Yay, I got my wish!! ;D

Darn, I should have asked for something bigger :P

I'll confess I missed that part, but that way they're too wide. I'd rather have it a bit bigger, that way it doesn't get that wide.

EDIT: And you do realise that a 19" LCD has the same screen area as a 21"CRT?  ;P
Why else do ya think I bought a 17 inch LCD to replace my 17 inch CRT? :scholar:
Title: Re:The Magical Genie Wish Granting Thread
Post by: Jeysie on August 25, 2004, 03:08:49 PM
CC: To a mere mortal, that would be too wide. However, Grundy is an artist, and artists can never have enough screen space. ;)

Personally, I wouldn't get too large a monitor, simply because I'd run into a problem of my eyesight capabilities clashing with the teeny size of things at higher resolutions.

I hope another genie can grant these wishes for me..

I wish more people on these forums had YIM and came on it more often because MSN WANTS TO EAT MY FACE!! ;'(

I wish someone would reveal the secret smileys to me!  I know they're there!

Oh, and now....I shall try to grant Kimmie's wish (but I might need more details)..
POOF!
.....did it work?

Wish granted.

Well, I don't go to #sq anymore (and nobody else I know uses IRC much), but if you like:

http://freenode.net/

Actually, one KQ9 fan registered #kq9 there a while back, but I don't know if it might have been de-registered due to non-use.

I refuse to grant Jeysie's wish until she gets on YIM!  Or at LEAST AIM on a regular basis!

And I'm afraid I can't give Fatali his Homeworld2.  I could give him homework as consilation. :angel:

And the best I can do for Fatali's other wish is this:
POOF!
Lots of threads for you to reply to! XB

Oh wow... look at my post count! I just gained another post! You did grant my 'hundred post' wish! (just, I might have to wait a while for those "wish posts" to trickle in ;) )
