Granted. You can now sleep longer because you got fired from your job.

I wish this weekend to be sunny, as I go for a four day vacation in Alps tomorrow.

Granted. The place you're cycling will run out of water in a year.

I wish we could get enough rain to water my lawn, yet not float my car down the road.

The rain falls, but only on your yard. Your neighbors burn you as a witch.

I wish my failing air conditioning unit would magically start working again.

Lol! I read your wish as failing hair conditioning unit and was about to say, Bear, you look better with that style.
I wish I could stop associating faces with names when reading posts.

Granted! But you still have to remain a few months under observation after the therapy in your local psychiatric hospital.

I wish that cats could take care of themselves when leaving home for vacation.

Granted, but they throw a "Risky Business" style party in your absence, trashing your house.

I wish I had the opportunity to eat sushi more often.

You accept an offer to teach English in Japan and when it's time to leave you discover if you go back to the U.S. you'll be subject to imprisonment for unpaid parking tickets.

I hope thats how this thread works...

Granted. It cooks much faster, but because you are reading this thread instead of looking at your meat, it all got burned.

I wish I get rid of my coffee addiction this year.

You got it. From now on, you will want to get up at 4:30 a.m.

Done. Of course, it will start automatically at 12:01 a.m.

I wish I wasn't so hungry.

Granted, but your knees will have worn out by the time you are 30 and you'll have to spend in a wheelchair the rest of your life.

I wish the sun would shine and it would be 22 degrees C every day.

Granted. But now the sun shines day and night and you get sunburns unless you stay 50 feet underground.

I wish I had something better to do than post wishes in this thread.

Granted, you can now read your cat's mind. But you now live in fear as you realize that as soon as the cat figures out how to use the can opener that it will kill you in your sleep.

I wish it were still the weekend.

Granted. But you have to be in office to work on a production issue that is not reproducible and you don't get to move unless its gone.
I wish I could drink more coffee without any side effects.

Granted. But now you have to fix all the crappy code in the world, cure cancer, and bring peace to the world. (BTW, coffee is now said to help prevent liver cancer)

I wish I could just work on greenfield projects with smart people who knew what they were doing.

I wish this bit of code I'm working on would write itself.

Granted. All the politicians pull their heads out of their asses. Oh wait, sorry, can't happen. That's just too strong a wish for even magic to accomplish.

I wish someone would bring me another cup of coffee.

Somebody brings you a coffee. But it's done very poorly and you have to make another coffee yourself.

I wish the mouse I fed in mountains this weekend is doing well.

The mouse has grown to monstrous proportions and is terrorizing the locals, spawning the legend of Mouse Man!

Granted. But the scripts and formulas are a mix of Cyrillic, Chinese and Mayan hieroglyphs. You don't understand a bit of it.

I wish I people stop hiding behind ego and power and start confronting things.

- you never really corrupted it. I don't have to understand as as long as the visualizations are true.

In that case the visualizations are pure noise as well
