I am currently wanting a new rig to play games on, because my exams are almost over and this thing struggles with new games. Also a Wii and maybe a Smart ForTwo.

I've always wanted a better bass, a good portable (piano) keyboard, a kickass gaming computer, a flux capacitor, the enterprise, the other ... 7 enterprises I can remember, a stargate, a hoverboard, a 1080p projector, H.M.S bounty (the *cool* one [hey, it was here in 1986 someone couldve stolen it]), a nuclear fusion reactor, a uni course that teaches me stuff at the rate I want to learn it, a spygadgetphone, a teleporter, a vogon sound reproduction system, just about everything in the hitch hiker's guide to the galaxy trilogy and a bigger towel.

I think I left alot out though.

My obscure (and very unlikely to get) want:
An army of nanobots for my body which can repair/change my body and act upon my impulse, so for instance if I felt like having no facial hair without shaving, booosh the nanobots remove the hair at the source. (Or be able to alter the genetic structure of my cells).

I'd love a treehouse, I think most people would, with dappled light and cosy inside.

I know its rather girly, but I'd like a pony, it's the inner-child part of me that wants one, I can't help it.

I could go for a horse. Not what I've always wanted, but that'd be cool. I always wanted to have a giant field to run with my dog in, but I have that. I guess I just wish I had it right now.

Changing your genetic structure this late in life won't to do nothing, boyo. Program them thar' nanobots of yours to re-arrange your cells and you might jus' be in business!

(I take no responsibility for any immense pain you may feel while this procedure takes place)

DO WANT:
-An Xbox 360
-Mass Effect
-Some sort of time-freezing field. Not only so I can play Mass Effect for days on end without wasting my precious, precious time, but it would also be generally really useful (and more than a bit cool).
-A laboratory/workshop with infinite resources (and time.. time is a resource right?) where I can build and test prototypes for all the crazy invention ideas that come into my head - electrostatic discharge rifle anyone? No? How about a pocket-sized COIL lasergun? Can I tempt you with a gauss pistol? Nucleicly collapsed nickel for generating power? Palladium-assisted nuclear fusion? Reverse Casimir buffers? Electromagnetic diametric drives? Take your pick.

Oh! And a siberian tiger.

Siberian Tigers are big! I'd hate to have to share a bed with one...or you know, it take the bed and force me to the floor lest it eat me.

Currently I'd really like a Piper Malibu and the license to fly it. So I can gather the friends and fly off to some city too far to drive to for the weekend.

And a puma. They're smaller than siberian tigers, so I think I could probably share a bed without too many flesh wounds.

My tiger would me modified to be toothless and talonless...and this is of course incredibly humane...actually, can he just be a tiger cub that never grows old? That would be the awesomest.

Do want?

My dad used to have a picture of a bengal tiger hanging in his office. It terrified me until I was about 4, and I refused to go into his office alone. So maybe I'm still somewhat anti-tiger.

A friend from high school now works at a habitat for rescued tigers. The ones that rappers and other rich idiots buy and then give up / have seized because having an adult tiger is not a smart idea. Pretty awesome job description (unless you want, you know, actual income).

-Learning new languages

Other than that, I want to fly. Without the aid of anything, so jet packs and hang gliders do not count. It's my greatest ambition and I swear someday I'll do it.
