If wishes came true, I'd.....

What is YOUR wish?

Infinite wishes! Woo!

Failing that, I'd wish for the ability to teleport, so I could visit and spend time with people and at places on a whim, no matter the distance.

Or, depending on my mood the day I'm offered the wish, the eradication of humanity.

I wish there was an interdimensional coffee shop we could all go hang out in together regardless of time and distance.

That'd be cool, but does it have to be a coffee shop?

Well, it could serve more than coffee, silly. It would be interdimensional.

Lots of cash.
Then that "world peace" and the "finding a cure for cancer" stuff.
But first the cash.

Maybe it could be more of a general interdimensional hub, which happens to have a coffee shop in it, among other things. Like a hypermall, but less focused on commerce.

Yes, but how would liquids stay in the cups? Those bulb things are positively tacky.

The ability to transport (e.g. instantaneous travel) so I could go anywhere anytime I was free. I could visit Hong Kong one night after work and then head to Australia for the weekend.

I thought foo WAS an intergalactic international interdimensional hub palace thingy. We certainly are spacey, at least.


I would wish to feel again the intensity of friendships that have faded away.

I'd help bring Siu's family back. I'd also make .308 ammo go back down to 15 cents a round.
