90% app-related wishes. I'd say about 90% of my wishes are for like "more time" "more beers" "more time for beers" etc

Not to be confused with Twatspire, which is something completely different...

Tweet/twat jokes are so '08.

I wish there was a website where I could download such Archer ringtones as "Black Ass Momma, White Ass Daddy" and "Hush Hush, What What".

I wish there was a website you could goto like YouTube but instead of playing videos you'd play smells and could smell them at home

Yeah, because as annoying as the Rickrolling era was, it was better than being tricked to smell other people's farts all the frigging time.

This is what would happen if highdeas got a twitter account.

I was at an outdoor gig in London a few years back and the guy next to me said 'I wish there was a beer that turned into a chair when you finished it'.

I wish someone would create a box filled with candy that would never run out of candy and if you turned it over and held it up the room would flood with candy. Preferably it'd produce mostly Reeses peanut butter Easter eggs and Fun-Dip, but I'm not picky.

I wish there was a site which granted more wishes.

I was just thinking to myself today that I really have to get over the fact that subjunctive is dead.

I wish there were a website that automatically emailed people that said "wish there was" a corrected version.

I wish there were an app to get you meddling kids off my lawn.

I wish I wish with all my heart to fly with dragons in a land apart.

No, just kidding.

I wish there were a site where one could purchase fully-functioning bags of holding.

Speaking of Twitter, go #dickbar! Trend the shit out of Twitter!

The Metafilter twitter feed posted this article and due to the title, it's included on the page.

I like the concept a lot.

That sounds like a good idea until you go through a six pack and can't get to the bathroom because of all the damn furniture in the way.

Yeah, at first I couldn't see what the uproar was about, but damn, the dickbar is annoying as hell. I uninstalled that version of the app.

Today, I tweeted: "I wish there was a Nordic social networking site called Fjacebjörk."

But since my account is protected, I doubt this will pick it up. So if any of you fine folks are looking for an exclusive investment opportunity...
