> The genie said "OK, OK. You released me from the lamp,
> blah blah blah, yada, yada, yada.  This is the fourth time this month
> and I'm getting a little sick of these wishes so you can forget about
> three. You only get one wish"

> The man sat and thought about it for a while and said, "I've
> always  wanted to go to Hawaii but I'm scared to fly and I
> get very seasick. Could you build me a bridge to Hawaii so
> I can drive over there to visit?"
> The genie laughed and said, "That's impossible. Think of the
> logistics of that How would the supports ever reach the
> bottom of the Pacific?
> Think of how much concrete...how much steel
> No, think of another wish."
> 
> The man said OK and tried to think of a really good wish.
> Finally, he said,  "I've been married and divorced four
> times. My wives always said that I don't care and that I'm
> insensitive. So, I wish that I could understand women...know
> how they feel inside and what they're thinking when they give
> me the silent treatment...know why they're crying, know what
> they really want when they say 'nothing'....know how to make
> them truly happy...."

> The genie said, "You want that bridge two lanes or four?
