A man who was strolling along a California beach, discovered an old lamp. As he picked it up and rubbed it, a genie popped out of it.
The genie said, “Alright, Thank you for getting me out of the lamp. This is the fourth time this month and I’m getting somewhat tired of these wishes so you can disregard three. All you got is one wish, so think of it wisely.”
The man sat, and considered it for some time and stated, “I always desired to go to Hawaii, however I’m frightened to fly, it makes me exceptionally ill. I want a bridge to Hawaii, so I can drive my own car to Hawaii”
The genie laughed and said, “That’s impossible! Think of it scientifically. How would the pillars ever reach the bottom of the Pacific? Imagine how much concrete and steel would be needed. No, think of another wish.”
The man said “Alright, I will attempt to think about a different wish”. At long last, he stated, “I’ve been married and divorced four times. My wives always said that I am careless and unkind. Along these lines, 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, understand what they really want when they say “nothing,” know how to make them truly happy.”
The genie said, “Do you want that bridge to be two lanes or four?”
