Windows 7: If you had three wishes

If you had three wishes

So I watch the Thursday and Friday X-Files marathon on BBC America, and today they played the episode about a genie entitled Je Souhaite which is French for, "I Wish." It's one of my favorite episodes. So I got to thinking, if I had three wishes what would they be? Now given the context of the genie folklore and what happens in that X-Files episode, you'd have to craft your wish's very carefully. Almost like a lawyer, tight lipped clause in some contract since there can and may be consequences and repercussions.

So with that, here are my three wishes. Let me know if you foresee any and all possible consequences and repercussions.

1) I wish that I'd get all six numbers right next week in Mega Millions when I purchase my ticket.

2) I wish that Rachel Reynolds of The Price is Right would divorce her husband and fall in love with me. LMAO!

3) This is a hard one. On one hand I'd like to wish for a wishing machine, but on the other hand I might wish for the genie's freedom. After all, if he/she can grant me those first two wishes, then I'm a happy camper. So no more bottles for you, sir or mam. It was like this at the end of that X-Files episode. She got her freedom and got to live a normal life drinking coffee at a diner.

What's say you?

Very interesting concept F22 Simpilot, I will have to give this some thought and get back to you!

As a side note, I bought the X-Files box set about 12 years ago, and watched them all in sequence [twice so far!]. Although each episode is pretty much a standalone, there are a couple of extra themes that only become apparent [like Mulders Sister for example] when you watch them all in sequence. There has got to be at least a Series 12 because to tie up all the loose ends.

Interesting and thought provoking post F22 Simpilot!

Here in the U.S. they have in fact rebooted the X-Files, but I have yet to watch the new episodes.

You are in for a real treat.

Chris Carter has included some very special messages for the viewers, thanking them for their dedication.

In the series 11 premiere [towards the end], it contains a hidden secret message that hints the show is ending. It sounds like an alien voice, but, when played backwards, it says:

If this is the end, it’s been a wild, wild adventure with some of the finest people I know, and the greatest fans that we could’ve hoped for. Here’s to you. The truth is out there, 2018.

In the seventh episode of series 11, the episode's title: Rm9sbG93ZXJz, is Base64 code for Followers. The tagline for this episode is a line of letters and numbers: VGhlIFRydXRoIGlzIE91dCBUaGVyZQ, which is Base64 code for The Truth Is Out There.

The X-Files has undoubtedly got to be one of the best series ever.

Sorry, I'm getting off topic!

I was going to say! That looks an awful like base64. LOL

I love cryptography, etc. In fact, my avatar has a hidden encrypted message in it.

Edit-

Never mind. Checking the image the forum manipulated the image so that the code disappears.
