    What's the consensus on genies performing magic for their masters outside of the three wishes?

    In Disney's Aladin, the genie could be tricked into performing extra magic, but he seemed not to like to. Does it hurt him or something? He seemed to enjoy it. Hell, he was singing uptempo show tunes and jabbering like a cocaine addict throughout.

    It's not like after wish 3, he earned his freedom. He could have easily brokered a deal with a master where he grants 2 wishes, 10 more under the table, and then the 3rd official one is to set him free.

    DISNEY'S ALADDIN IS FULL OF PLOT HOLES I DEMAND TO TALK TO EISNER.

    The Genies union is opposed to it. They consider it to be akin to working unpaid overtime.

    The best wish is to live life like a movie. A porn movie. 5 minutes later

    "And we now return to Caged Anus forcible rape 5."

    You'd live forever, this is a grand concept. No fear of death or disease. You outlive other people? Meh its ok you'll never see your own death! And you'll get to play duke nukem forever.

    Seriously. Wish stories that try and teach you a moral are dumber then dumb.

    Wish 1: I wish I knew the truth about religion
    - Kind of a wasted wish but there are three and you have to cover all your bases here

    Wish 2: I wish I were invulnerable to all harm - physical, aging, senility, lack of oxygen, lack of food
    - If all religions are entirely false and this is it, you can't argue with this wish.

    Wish 3: I wish I could will myself to travel in any direction, at any speed.
    - Wishing for money is a waste. Go for a really general superpower that encompasses flying, space travel and, with the any speed clause, the breaking of who knows how many physical laws. Teamed with invulnerability, this also creates a kind of super strength, using your invincible body as a battering ram.

    It might get lonely being the only immortal, invulnerable super person. Heh, probably not.

    Even disregarding that, I figure you'd not want to be immortal because of the inevitable collapse to insanity.

    Well if human beings ever became immortal I would hope everyone had access to it.

    But if I could be immortal even if I was the only one I would absolutely still do it. Friends aren't special people, you will always eventually lose friends and find new ones. It's the same way with a lover. There is no singular soul mate on the planet, there are potentially hundreds or thousands.

    So yes, I would risk loneliness if I could live forever and be in a position to learn everything there was to know and to experience everything that existed. How amazing would it be to experience the end of the universe itself?
