4) prove to the world King Arthur was a girl named Arturia Pendragon D: (that would really fuck up the world would it not?)
5) capture king kong in a master pokeball..., 6) bring a dinosaur from the past and sell it in the future for like a gazillion dollars and with the money burn it in their faces.., 7) hmmm... anymore ideas? D:
Go back to God age and marry a goddess? :D

Go to biblical times and prove that Jesus existed to end all the discussions/wars that happen around religion. Or not, of course.
That's one thing to ask for the grail.

Go back to the biblical times and prove that Jesus existed and was just a ordinary guy and nothin' special. (I don't disagree with Christians, I believe a man as famous as him existed, but I hardly believe anything was special, but just that he was good with words and a good guy)

No offense or anything but you could get shot for saying that.

Ohohoho. I wasn't trying to flame anyone there, buddy, I'm religious myself.
I just wanted to add something to the thread. That, plus the fact I am annoyed that actually most of the wars are about religion. But that's for another forum, I suppose.

There is one thing I would wish fore. And that wouldn't be this:

This, for the record, is the biggest nonsense I've found posted in these forums all day.

Anyway, religious debate is offtopic here. Post your wish or do not, but don't post about other topics.

This means the ability to reconfigure my brain for eidetic memory, ability to redesign and preserve my genetic code to eliminate aging, ability to selectively control my metabolism and efficacy of body, etc.

While a simple 'wish,' it more or less encompasses the entirety of possible wishes. Immortality (more or less) without the loss of sanity (ability to reconfigure your memory so that you don't overload yourself), ability to change appearance and intelligence. If you want money, you have the capability to make it by numerous methods.


Okay, you basically read my mind. Full body control.

Or, I'd wish for the ability to communicate with my subconscious self.
I could give it an order, and it would do it for me, so I'd have two minds controlling one body, being able to perform twice as good.
That would be pretty crazy, I mean, learning twice as fast, movement twice as precise, etc...


Actually, there is a book by Robert Heinlein that basically follows this same concept a bit further.

In the book, any sufficiently intelligent person actually has multiple mental 'threads'. Think like a muli-threading computer, and how it can compute several processes in parallel. Its kinda funny, because one of the anecdotal examples is a guy who sits in a meeting reading a book, writing to himself, and listening/participating in conversations. When someone asks if he is paying attention, another person dresses him down for demanding too much, saying something like "You can't expect him to waste all of his resources on you, can you?"

Unfortunately, this could also lead to Dissociative Identity Disorder, so...

[EDIT] If interested, the book is Beyond This Horizon by Robert A. Heinlein.

I dunno if you realised this, but stuff that most people want most is often the worst for them.
I couldn't care less and i would wish that time for japan, and japanese subbers would pass 1000000

Just let the grail serve its original purpose: providing a link to Akasha, the root of all things.

It's quite simple for me.

Use one holy grail, and make a wish. The wish is to get two holy grails.

Hmm...this is a rather difficult decision, if we consider the grail's current state, there is no wish it can grant that wouldn't come back to byte me one way or another. Several similar examples come to mind :
For anyone who's played "S.T.A.L.K.E.R." : the wish granting monolith, that corrupted any wish you had for it; Ex: you wanted the wasteland to stop existing, it showed you a vista of lush green pastures...then blinded you from the real truth. Another wish was for immortality...so it turned your body into diamond.

I doubt there's a wish out there that isn't potentially damaging...so I'd leave it alone. *I get the feeling someone's gonna challenge this statement soon*
If the grail would be as before however...well...perhaps being able to visit other worlds, and some paranormal abilities would be great. :D
