I'm gonna go out on a limb here and introduce one of my favorite examples of pessimism, a game I learned on a different forum, and introduced to a second:
The rules are simple:
I make a wish, and the next person to post finds an ironic way to derive bad consequences from granting the wish, or to otherwise tag a downside to it, and so on and so forth.
i wish i had a Corvette
granted. you got it real cheap because it was crushed under a giant anvil.
i wish i was the most attractive person in the world
granted. you are the most attractive person in the world, and both sexes now want your body.
i wish i had a big, juicy steak.
granted. how's your diet going?
i wish i was invulnerable to every kind of harm.
granted, however, you can no longer drive down one-way streets on Tuesdays.
i wish for world peace
If a wish is uncorruptable, there are two courses of action: corrupt it anyways, or answer the wish with "not granted".
The latter is by far the funnier option, in my opinion.
So, what does everyone think?
Oh, by the way...
