If a genie appeared and said you can have one wish, but there are two rules: it can't have anything to do with wealth or romance, what would be your wish? I'd pick fame. I'd be a rock star or movie star. Why? Money... and romance! I want Charilize Theron. But right now I wouldn't mind being Sean Penn. People following you around, wanting your autograph, it'd probably be a pain, but I think I could do OK with it. I'm old enough that I'd just deal with it. Check out what these people said:

  • the ability to pause time -- and maybe turn it backwards
  • the ability to sleep as long as you want without messing up your schedule
  • allow people in the past to temporarily visit the present so I can show them around.
  • Dying in a spectacular or selfless way that saves people.
  • Being important enough to be asked for interviews on radio and TV
  • Telekinesis
  • shapeshifting
  • tramp around the country for a few years.
  • stop a gunman and save the day
  • be an astronaut
  • visit the far future (hundreds of years in the future)
  • losing weight
  • go into the past to see what life would have really been like.
  • being the center of attention -- everyone thinking you're hilarious
  • endless summer -- endless days wake boarding and drinking beer on a speedboat with my family, to be more specific.
  • being an ace fighter pilot in space battles
  • eat whatever I want without gaining weight
  • my band becoming successful
  • being in really good shape
