      My wish this time is simple: I wish I had a watermelon.
      (Note the 'a' - a single watermelon, not a veritable shower of watermelons.)

    • Granted. You get the world's largest watermelon rolling towards you like the boulder in Raiders of the Lost Ark only bigger. And as you're not Indiana Jones, you'll have to use the Prometheus School of Running Away from big Scary Objects method to escape.

      I wish for the Oktoberfest bratwursts to come early.

    • Granted. You overcome it by having a concentrated blast of time shot at you. Now hellos Miss Helen who's really in her 20s but looks like she's in here 20th 20s.

      My university's honors college wants two essays. One of the questions in one is "What you expect from the honors college?" I wish I could think of an answer other than "money" because I'm guessing that's what they don't want to see. (And in all honesty, that's the real reason for applying in my case.)

    • Granted...I typed into google translate.....translated it to Zulu and then re-translated it back into English.....

      Respected quality is your next step if you want a competitive limit on your job, you want to be a specialist in your field or kick your way to the PhD.

      hope it helps :D

      I wish I could operate (fully functional) on less than 6 hours of sleep at day....I have second term tests starting in 2 weeks.

    • Granted....meet bento but no matter how hard you try...yours will never look like this. I wish to have clarity on which field (education) to pick...as over the last 4 weeks I have talked to different teachers.....and now I am less sure of my choice.

      You have gone too far!

      the only thing that makes sense in my world sometimes is the immutable fact that at 0 Celsius water freezes.. not at 32 Farenheit. Or how about 1 meter = to 3.28 feet?! How many feet does a person need?!

      I Grant your wish........now the whole world uses the sensible metric system! :miffy:

      I wish I didn't lose at rock,paper and scissor with my sister on what movie we are going to watch.

      Granted. Now you have hundreds of 12-year olds milling about in your yard.

      @Helen357 Of course 1 meter = 3.28 ft. seems unreasonable. That's because you're going from nonsense to sensible. We would say 1 yd. = 3 ft. which is a much easier conversion.

      I wish my school's server supported the export keyword for template classes.

      Edit: @nemenku but now that she knows that game, everything will end in a draw when everyone chooses Spock.

      Granted. And every time you use it, your code takes as long or longer to compile, runs slower, and almost assuredly does not do what you expected. open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2003/n1426.pdf

      I find it a little funny that you're lamenting the absence of a "feature" that was never fully implemented, and which was removed from the standard about 20 years ago. And I thought the people (including me) upset over the shutdown of Google Reader had a long memory.


      I wish every computer language included GOTO (or JMP). Because, sometimes, that's exactly what you need ...

      No. look at the diagram, and read the article. The best move is still to select Paper, which beats both Rock & Spock.

      I'm gonna have to read that article. (The reason for it is that I was trying to fix the undefined reference to errors that were in my code because I defined some of the template functions in a .cpp At my former college the way to fix that was to have a .cpp that just included the .h and a .def [alibi no export] so I tried the same thing. But then the compiler didn't know what to do with a .def, which led me to finally solve it by putting everything into the .h which just feels unnatural. But prior to that I was trying to figure out how the heck I could still use two files and that export seemed promising from my brief intro.)

      Your wish is granted. But now that it's a feature of every language, more young programmers start to think "I should use GOTOs for everything." This causes a tidal wave of spaghetti coding so big that it stretches ten miles up into the sky.

      Also, 'twas an interesting RPS article.

      I wish that my one gen ed this semester was a lot more interesting.

      @nemenku I cannot do "Spock" .....shhh don't tell anyone!

      @Kaleg Nar my next semester has the exciting elective choices of personal finance management or instruction to organizational behavior....even my trusty calculator is getting scarred.

      Granted....you get to choose from such exciting electives as: petting sharks, playing with giant squids or chasing polar bears while wearing a meat suit....

      I have narrowed my choices down to two.....I wish for a sign to help me choose the right one.

      Personal Finance Management is important whether you are working or not. Maybe even more important when you are not. And, it is something you can use for the rest of your life and also to plan for afterwards.

      Introduction to Organizational Behavior will help during the Zombie Apocalypse, and other instances where a group of people needs to come together to complete a project or program. It'll help you to understand how work gets done. Well, I mean besides the actually doing it. In the end, someone has to actually lift the load.

      I'm pretty sure your trusty calculator has a random number generator, or you can program a quick function. Using that gives you the sign you are looking for. I mean, the calculator is your friend, right? It wouldn't cheat the choice, so that you were led to enroll in a class which would require your unceasing use of it to give it a sense of purpose, would it?


      I wish that I knew more about the breeding habits of the Burmese Python. My retirement plan is to move to south Florida and enroll as a bounty hunter in the Python Elimination Program.
