In your wildest dreams, if you could do anything you can imagine, what would it be, and why?

Travel through a worm hole?
Go back in time?
Sit down and have coffee with God?
Re-take that last physics exam?
Take back the words that you spoke last night: "Honey you need to lose a little weight"?

Travel the universe, visiting everyplace I could.

Bring back my long dead friends.

Take back what I said.

Hello, brains in vats- what else? :approve: I would end suffering without killing everything. That would take care of everything else. :smile:

1. Bring back those who died prematurely (due to violence or illness) so that they could be with their families and hopefully live peaceful, meaningful and happy lives.

2. Travel in time and space. I always wanted to see dinosaurs and early mammals during different periods of evolution.

3. End or relieve the suffering in the world, and any other world I might encounter on my travels through the universe.

4. Clean up the earth's oceans and other bodies of water and reforest the areas that have been denuded of trees.

I know why I am here - to do as much of 3 and 4 as humanly possible, although those activies are confined to this planet.

Can't let you do that. What I didn't mention previously is that I pre-emptively disabled all weapons on earth. :biggrin:

No more wars!

While we are at it, I might as well go for being "Master of the Universe". Don't worry, I am very benevolent. o:)

1.Having coffee with God is a great idea!
First,I want him to give me whatever I like then I'll ask him some questions:
The most important 1 is "why did you create so much stupid?"
I could have lots of fun there.siting there and watching the comic movie which is about human's life.
2.traveling to a black hole!
(think about others later!)

Lisa,so you'd ask him:"Why did he create me?" :surprised: That's some curiosity...:tongue2:

I wouldn't bring anyone back from the dead,i've seen "Night of the Living Dead I & II",i sorta know that too many living wouldn't like my idea.

I wouldn't nuke anyone,nor go back in time...

I'd just kiss my girlfriend right this very second...:wink:

I wish it was possible.:frown:

Damn it, that was *my* position! >=(

Automatically, if you nuke earth, you take every other weapon with it (although, they do detonate). =)

Selfish: Live for exactly 10,000 years (maintaining my present state of body and mind).

Magnanimous: Reconcile the world religions to form a single, logical, peaceful worldview. This is what would take 10,000 years.

I'd want to be able to see the world at any place and any time. I want to see so many beautiful things in this world, not just now, but in the past and in the future. I want to see my city in 1910 at the height of its beauty and stregnth, before war and industrial decline. I want to see York in medieval times, Rome at the peak of its imperial might and the pyramids being built. I want to see the first early humans spark up a fire, hunt down a mammoth. I want to watch dinosaurs, and see the first lung fish laboriously drag itself onto land, poke a trilobite. I want to see what the future holds- how much we eventually achive, how we fall, what effect we eventually have on the world and its climate. I want to see what new forms life take, what dominates after us, what mountains spring up and how the continents arrange themselves millions of years down the line. Finally (obligatory dirty answer) I want to see what goes on in the girl's changing rooms.

I was going to be a smartass and say "Repeal the law of gravity", but then I realized that I'd probably have to clean the ceiling.

This probably has nothing to do with it, but he did borrow my doggie suit a couple of weeks ago. :uhh:
