    Hey guys!

    This may seem like a silly silly idea, but I dunno, ever since some recent family events happened, I've been thinking...differently. I remember all I used to think about was the latest game release and finding the patch for it, or waiting and bickering for the latest Pokemon translation patch, etc., but nowadays it's all about chemistry, college, and family problems compounding.

    It's the holiday season, and if you guys could get that one wish granted (that isn't video game related), what would it be?

    Well, I think about all those things.


    A stable economy, that have most people at least in the mid-high middle class.
    A bit more realistic, another scholarship or either free education.

    Peace and Joy on Earth.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    But I'd like a chance to not have to worry about money. Seems everywhere I turn recently I have to have money. A day where everything is free. (Limited item of a kind per person.)

    Money, so I can pay off my damn credit cards. I hate being in debt.

    Being surprised with some gift that I'm not expecting.

    To see my girlfriend. She's away at university most of the year so I never get to see her aside from Skype :/

    A wish is something that can't be achieved using one's own power. To that extent, I'd wish for politics to disappear (preferably permanently) in favor of all the world's leaders giving a damn about the people they're supposed to be serving and protecting*.

    *I acknowledge that this does not apply to all world leaders, but it applies to enough of them.

    I would wish for fusion power to be completed.

    Cheap clean endless power would solve so many of the worlds problems it's not even funny.

    I wish for people to remember that it is Christmas, not "this holiday".

    A tad off topic, I hear that a lot, and if you think about it, saying "happy holidays" isn't always fear of being politically incorrect. There are many religious/major traditional holidays that happen in December, the 3 of which pop to mind most for me are Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. Now, in face to face conversation, I think saying "happy holidays" could be a bit unnecessary - I almost always say "Merry Christmas", even at work, because that's what I celebrate, unless the person I am talking to obviously does not celebrate such holiday. But online, where you're talking to hundreds at once in part of a discussion, I see it more as a "your December holiday of choice" sort of deal, opening it to a wider audience than just specifically "Only people who celebrate Christmas".

    Eh, just my 2 cents, anyway.
