granted, but that creates a paradox that accidentally gives me a paper cut, therefore violating the conditions of my wish, therefore not granting my wish, but you did grant it, and so on.

I wish that I knew why.

Granted, it is because you are a evil genie, therefore you do not exist, therefore you do not have a paper cut, therefore the conditions of your wish were indeed granted by the paradox that YOU were responsible for creating. As we have established you are a non-existent evil genie I have received no request for any wish from you so do not need to grant them as you have or have not specified.

I wish flamebirde was able to prove how a paradox creates a paper-cut and so avoid violating rule 3 of the genie code ( E.g. it's cheating if a person wishes for a million dollars, and the genie gives him a million dollars and also dumps a bucket of lava on his head). I contest that the paper-cut and the paradox are not related

Evil Genies caught in the act of breaking the genie code*

Genie: Y-San
Rule Broken: III. All harm that the spiteful genie inflicts should ultimately derive from a creative interpretation of the wish
How: By blindly running over wisher with a car in answer to the wish "I wish to fydt da gerb teriup"
Caught in the act by: Phaze (the victim)

Genie: flamebirde
Rule Broken: III. All harm that the spiteful genie inflicts should ultimately derive from a creative interpretation of the wish
How: By giving self a paper cut in answer to a wish for understanding how a wish was granted if evil genies did not exist
Caught in the act by: Phaze


*which within this game no other code can be thought of as being more highly regarded including and not limited to imposing an impossible or paradoxical situation or accidentally or purposefully creating additional rules.

If you're allowed to connect your wish to the previous wish you just granted, then the creative interpretation should be allowed to apply to both those things. *shrugs*

I wish flamebirde was able to prove how a paradox creates a paper-cut and so avoid violating rule 3 of the genie code ( E.g. it's cheating if a person wishes for a million dollars, and the genie gives him a million dollars and also dumps a bucket of lava on his head).

With great effort, he managed to fold an origami version of an Escher painting, thereby creating a paradox, and in doing so, he gained a paper-cut.


I wish my parents had had the perfect asian child they wanted instead of me (stupid one-child rule :(), and I had, as a baby, mysteriously washed up on the shore of some river where I had been found by an order of elite assassins and been raised by them :ph34r:.

Y-San: <grammar nazi mode>Then it should at least say "All harm that the spiteful genie inflicts should ultimately derive from a creative interpretation of the wishes" </grammar nazi mode>

Granted, When was the last time you asked your "parents" their occupation? And you believed them?! I would have thought the baby mobile of shuriken over your cot was a dead giveaway.
Your parents have the perfect Asian child but abandoned him as well due to them perceiving him having a messiah complex.
I wish that Ysan and her "parents" have and will continue to have no knowledge of my existence or whereabouts unless it is on completely affable terms at which time they will repent and be baptized.

Two can play at the grammar nazi game...after all, you don't own the "patient" :P

All harm that the spiteful genie [where does it say all genies must be spiteful? Can't they just be absentminded, neglectful, or blind?] inflicts [does not specify on who the harm is inflicted upon] should ultimately derive from a creative interpretation of the wish [does not say "of the person the harm is inflicted upon", hence the person who is harmed and the person who made the wish do not have to be the same].

I wish that Ysan and her "parents" have and will continue to have no knowledge of my existence or whereabouts unless it is on completely affable terms at which time they will repent and be baptized.


Ysan and her "parents" have no knowledge of your existence, but their other personalities know exactly who you are...and where you live (you were spot on about the shuriken...it was just their alternative, evil personalities blocked it from them ;P)

I wish every time there was a blatant scientific inaccuracy in a movie, the science gestapo would jump out of the screen and enlighten the audience.

Which is why flamebirde is at fault for giving himself a paper cut...

Granted, All scientist have been given gestapo training and redistributed to cinemas, however they are no no longer researching the cure for cancer (which they were about to make a major breakthrough with) and numerous other illnesses, and the Mars rover is now wandering aimlessly and has missed a very clear indication for intelligent life being on Mars. A sitting of one movie from Lord of the rings trilogy now takes over a week. Cartoons are worse. It is difficult to fund the new science gestapo from the cinema coffers so the government has to step in and increase taxes to around 100%. It takes so much "explaining" some movies that scientists have died of dehydration, and even in some cases hunger. The economy crashes, research is non-existent and Jamie gets fired from Mythbusters (is made redundant). Eventually everyone comes to their senses and shuts down cinemas allowing scientists to resume their regular position (albeit with the occasional Nazi salute). Everyone now goes to the video store or buys their unscientific Hollywood propaganda online where they are not bothered by stern voices telling them that from that height it would take 1.37 seconds to hit the ground instead of have enough time to assemble a hang-glider that is bound to collide straight into the nearest building, in which time they should still be riddled with an estimated 40 bullets even if the shooter was a completely blind nervous wreak.

I wish I didn't have to remove most of that answer for the sake of brevity

Granted, but that makes the post so long that it crashes the site's servers and now no-one can get brain teasers and it's all your fault.

(this reminds me of a similar game on another forum http://scratch.mit.e...opic.php?id=281)

I wish the forum in the link I just gave was not going to close at the end of the year
