    Right now this is my biggest spiritual wish in and out of the CR:

    For people to learn that when defending Hashems Torah, you are STILL obligated to respect Hashem's children.
    When you defend words that you interpret as anti-Torah ( sometimes correctly and sometimes not) you still have a Halachik obligation to attack the words and posts without destroying the person. Your behavior should not be more anti-Torah than their words were.

    just my hapence: That is in direct violation of Wish Requesting from Genies, and you know it!!
    ;)

    For those requesting Moshiach, and other Ruchniyosdik stuff that intermingles with other people's bechirah, please stop and reread the OP. This is about a Genie, not G-D.
    Think gashmiyus, people, g-a-s-h-m-i-y-u-s!

    There's therapy for internet addiction. If you have a problem with certain websites download Bluecoat k9 and put a block on those websites and have someone else hold the passwords. You will be protected that way and reclaim some of your sanity. That is if you truly want to change and be helped.

    Emes is the OP is expressing kefira. On is forbidden to pray to Hashem only. And only hashem can give us any ruchnios or gashmios anyway.

    Ironically, redundant subtitles can be redundantly ironic.

    1) Create Kedusha for Yom Ha'Atzmaut
    2) Create Kedusha for Yom Yerushalayim
    3) Enhance Ahavat Yisrael limitlessly

    I'd only have 2 wishes -
    I'd wish for unlimited wishes
    I'd wish that people with too much time on theiur hands do something constructive with the time rather than spend it here at CR.

    Asking someone who has something does not constitute Teffila.

    Another important point is that Rav Shrira Gaon says that there are many things that are in the hands of Malachim, and you are allowed to ask them for it. (Caution: Don't Daven to them. Ask a Rav experienced in these matters — and send me his number — for more details.)

    So, I wouldn't ask for חיי בני ומזוני, since it is obviously not in its hands.

    This is an extremely tricky issue via a vis the prayers towards end of Selichos of "Machnisei Rachamim"

    147, the Maharal actually says that it can be justified if it is not a prayer, only a command.

    BaalHabooze - If you want to play that way, fine. Then wish 1: that the rule about no infinite wishes never existed. Thus allowing wish 2: infinite wishes. And then I'm good to go!

    Best Bubby EVER

    1) to see EMES in the world
    2) to see everyone living their lives productively b'simcha and in good health with no yisurin
    3) for Moshiach to come in our lifetime

    jmh - Don't mess with the Ministry of Genies and its Laws. You will be banned from wishing anything for the next 435 years, pending a hearing from the Upper Authorities, in violation of Code Bill #108 of Genilaws XZ34.
    In addition, by requesting those prohibited wishes, you also inadvertently fried the Genie's B.R.A.I.N., corrupting and destroying his core S.O.U.L. and he is now permanantly damaged. He will have to be disposed of and replaced.

    (hey, I should write my own version of Harry Potter!)

    Incorrigible; eccentric; somewhere between mean and average; sometimes only a bit over the top; arbitrarily engaged in cynicism.

    I don't know that I agree with syag. I have to think about it some more, and maybe hear more what syag means.

    1. Wish for an infinite number of wishes.

    What? That's not allowed? I can't wish for more wishes? Okay.

    1. Wish for an infinite number of genies.

    What? That's also not allowed? Okay.

    Slowly approaching bais yaakov style

    1. Resume life as a Bais Yaakov Girl (meaning deleting my Facebook account, along with acquiring the wardrobe and attending a bais yaakov seminary).
    2. Get a good shidduch.
    3. That everyone should be able to live fulfilling lives (with health, love and happiness).

    Nachas --- Is Nachas Ruchniyus or g-a-s-h-m-i-u-s? I'm not sure.

    World peace and the end of Anti-semitisim --> Mashiach was already banned from the wishes.
