    I wish for sufficient firepower to overwhelm a five hundred foot tarantula (or a thousand of them).

    I'll just nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

    I wish that someone would wake up Hicks.

    Hicks was dead from the bird thing. He is now Zombie Hicks.

    I wish to imbue zombies with the intelligence and sensibilities they had in life.

    They are all now at the same intellectual level as when they were still human. In fact, they are so intelligent that they decide to take over the world, and destroy or enslave those of us who are still human.

    I wish to liberate the human population from our new zombie overlords.

    Every zombie on the planet collapses dead on the spot. Being zombies, they get up again in five seconds, no worse for wear. We were free for a brief, but eventful, time.

    I wish to slay the dragon. Not literally, of course.

    You get your own miniature thunderstorm permanently parked above your head, cartoon style. It's mostly just annoying, but between the constant rain and electrical shocks to the scalp it's impossible to concentrate on anything.

    I wish heroic spirit could be harnessed and turned into raw power, anime style.

    I wish that only good people got involved in politics.

    Let me introduce you to my friend, mister Hobbes, and his theory on monarchy.

    Spoiler: In case you forgot from middle school

    Thomas Hobbes believed that people are, generally speaking, total bastards and need an enlightened despot to govern them.


    I wish to do something about all these dictatorships that just surfaced.

    Very well. You now inhabit this dome. There's no food, no toilets, no entertainment, no communications, no information on where you are and when you take the elevator to the surface all you can see is open ocean in all directions.

    I wish for all the superpowers of the Justice League.

    Granted. Your name is now John Smith. The amount of people who refuse to believe that it's your real name makes you downright furious.

    Granted. They've made several. Disney now has a copyright claim over most folktales, and will enforce it with zeal.

    The world's continents reunite to form a Pangaea-like supercontinent. The earthquakes and the effects on weather systems and ecology are not exactly pleasant. On the plus side, you can walk from New York across the border to Galway.

    I wish to explore this new supercontinent.

    You discover many interesting tribes that have sprung up from the ashes of the old governments.

    Some of them have very interesting practices. There's way more to ritual torture and cannibalism than you'd think!

    You find yourself in the middle of a campsite. Quickly, you grab your machete, cut the ropes around paddyfool's hands and feet (nevermind the other people that are tied up), and pull him by the hand towards the trees. "Quickly! We have to get out of here!" After a few tense minutes, you encounter a small cliff. The savages are right behind you! You lower yourself down, and jump around 15 ft to the ground. Fortunately, you both land well. Unfortunately, and unbeknownst to you, a mosquito bit both of you while you were running, and in a few weeks you'll find yourselves sick with malaria in the middle of the rainforest. Good luck!

    I'd like to airlift paddyfool and Isocahedron to a hospital.

    You get them into a helicopter and take off. (Never mind all the other people who are now sick with malaria.) You successfully bring them to a hospital. Unfortunately, it's a run-down, abandoned lunatic asylum.

    Abandoned by the staff, that is. The lunatics are all still there. And they've been wanting three new playthings. Have fun!

    I wish to perform a daring rescue.

    Unfortunately, learning all languages overwrites pretty much all of your brain. There's not much of a "you" left to do the understanding, and what's left is no longer mobile, never mind toilet trained.

    I wish to take over the asylum.
