Hi guys. I haven't posted or commented or replied much recently as I've been devoting most of my free time to my Etsy shop, it seems like it's getting close to convention and cosplay season, as I've received tons of orders as of late. I've been drawing and working on 3D models though, so once I find the time, I'll start posting again!
This next train of thought was inspired by an X-Files episode I watched the other day.
Lets say you found a genie, named Hessa, and she offers to grant you three wishes. The only rule is that she cannot give you more wishes, conjure more genies for you to make wishes from, or do anything that would cause her own destruction i.e. push the earth into the sun. She can
however kill people, bring people back to life, and is powerful enough to move the moon in its orbit. What would your three wishes be?
Now, before you wish for immortality or a billion dollars, consider this; Hessa is a bit vindictive, having been stuck in a lamp or shoebox or something for the past thousand years. If you wish for money, chances are she'll just steal it from someone else, and leave behind plenty of evidence implicating you. Also, the wording of your wishes is very important, as if you wish for "a million bucks" you might end up with a million male deer converging on your location. Peace and happiness on earth might mean the eradication of human life, and asking for "the rest of your life to be healthy and successful" might mean you get your dream job while feeling great, then die when the elevator cable snaps.
I think my wishes would be:
1. To be successful at whatever I try; be it art, rocket science or quantum programming.
2. To be able to selectively see an indefinite amount of time into the future.
3. To have the ability to create matter from sheer thought.
Lemme see what you'd wish for! It might just be included in an upcoming picture
