- you've got 3 wishes….. but…
- Mrs ToastMember
I wish I could be taller, thinner and generally more attractive until the end of my days
I wish I could do powered manuals over roots and rocks on uphill climbs
I wish I had an obscene amount of money (say Euromillions jackpot stylee) which I could then spend on friends and family as well as me and t’hubby.Posted 6 years agotrailofdestructionMember
I’d like my hair back please. It’s been missing for some time now. 🙁
I’d like to be able to do really awesome bunny hops on flat pedals.
I’d like enough money to not have to work in an office with a numpty boss and go ride my bike in the mountains every day instead.
Simple needs me.Posted 6 years agomrsconsequenceMember
Selfish – I would like bigger boobsPosted 6 years ago
Bike – I would like to the be able to go really fast down hills and jump really high over any bumps or drop offs on such hills
Last – I would like to have a load of money so I can have a really big house, take all my friends on holiday and never have to work againcrispoSubscriber
1) To be successful in everything I attempt to do (try and win euromillions – successful, try and get in properly good shape – successful etc) Is this cheating??
2) To be able to fettle with my bike and actually make it better (blast my gears) though i guess this is convered by 1
3) some thing for the good of the world?Posted 6 years agoononeorangeSubscriber
Selfish: I wish I was on much better terms with the suede genie.
Bike: I wish I could ride whenever I wanted with no risk of injury.
Final: I wish there could be just one long post on STW on a topical matter in which all the usual suspects engaged in thoughtful, courteous debate, and listened and evaluated the various points of view in their own right without resorting to petty insults. With proper sentences and no spelling errors. I reckon that’s the hardest one!Posted 6 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
Bike – I’d like to be completely injury free all the time, I quite enjoy practiceing/progressing but the inevitable bails hurt!
Selfish – epic levels of musical tallent, much as I’d like to win £166million I’d still like a career, and lests face it who doesn’t want to be a rock star?
Lastly – Better climate for the UK, mid december to mid Febuary snow, and lots of it, then April – October to be just Sunny with overnight rain to keep the farmers in business.Posted 6 years ago
you know the situation, you’re sitting at home brushing your suede jackets down from last nights dogging session and after exactly 12 brushes the suede genie pops out to grant you 3 wishes.
There are rules on how to use them:
1 wish must be an entirely selfish wish.
1 wish must be about a skill on a bike.
the last wish can be whatever you want.
you cannot wish for more wishes, if you try the suede genie will damn you to an eternity of having TJ, elfin and the rest of the crews posts read to you by voices inside your head you cant get rid of.Posted 6 years ago
1 wish must be an entirely selfish wish. – to be physically awesome (not in pain, no genetic problems, strong healthy muscles, not injure myself etc) until i’m old enough to die peacefully in my sleep after an amazing day
1 wish must be about a skill on a bike. – i like the buzz of learning new things, so if coupled with my physical wish of not getting hurt above then i’d wish for the mental balls to attack whatever’s in front of me on the bike and get back on when it doesn’t work 😀
the last wish can be whatever you want. – pet dino-sharkPosted 6 years agoCougarSubscriber
Selfish; I’d like a nice house in the countryside well away from scrotes. In fact, I’d like there to be no scrotes.
Bike; toss-up between being stronger and fitter so that I can keep up with people better, and being able to manual / bunny-hop confidently and consistently.
Anything; lets get rid of that global warming thing, hey?Posted 6 years agoSoloMember
Ok, I’ll play, I’m bored.
1st: Enough money to make wish three a success.
2nd: Tough one this. Go along the iDave route, high level of fitness without having to train for it and without shortening my 1000 year lifespan. (see what I did there ?)
3rd: Setup an organisation to provide shelter for the homeless, employ people to run said organisation and generally get everyone a roof, a bed and a meal.Posted 6 years ago
Part of wish three is that the organisation is successful enough that I can expand to microsoft proportions in order to provide other forms of help to others.RealManMember
you cannot wish for more wishes
I wish for more genies. Or more magic jackets. Failing that,
The intelligence of the guy at the end of Limitless – being able to learn a language or a martial art in a few hours sounds pretty awesome.
Technical ability of Sam Hill, fitness and power of Spartacus (but I get to keep my weight), but the ability to improve beyond (I was going to make this two wishes but someone else did this so whatever).
Immortal, invincible – every time I hit the age of 65 I go back to being 18, but am still capable of committing suicide.
1) I’d wish for everyone to be happy.
O brave new world, that has such people in’t!Posted 6 years agoBigButSlimmerBlokeMember
1 I wish that everyone could have a visit from the genie and get three wishes
2 That one of the wishes is that everyone wished that everyone else could get a visit from the genie with the attendant three wishes
3 Really? Two isn’t enough? Ok, now with a more or less infinte numebr of wishes available to them, everyone has the lifespan of a mayfly, and they cannot unwish that
EDIT – 3 doesn’t apply to mungue-chick until she comes back from her fabby diving holidayPosted 6 years agonickfMember
Selfish: Enough money that I could retire to Morzine and run a chalet/hotel to keep me busy. With enough left over to buy a house each for my kids, get them started in life.
Bike-related: proper DH ability. Not bothered about mad jumps (though that’d be nice, obviously) but the skill to ride really well on a DH race course and still need to pedal ‘cos otherwise I’d be going too slowly (currently I’m often braking ‘cos I’m going too fast)….that’d be nice.
Anything: Seeing millions of people suffering in Africa is pretty troubling, especially when a lot of it is man-made. I’d like to see all evil dictator types explode in a ball of fiery righteousness. Oh, and for Call Me Dave to dissolve back into the pool of slime from which he ‘evolved’.Posted 6 years ago
