Illustration for article titled What people around the world would wish for if they got three wishes

Tim Urban of Wait But Why traveled to Russia, Japan, Nigeria, Iraq and Greenland and asked dozens of people if they had three wishes what they would wish for. A lot of the wishes are obvious: money, happiness, a house, love and peace come up often. But others just want something simple, like a biscuit.


It's fun to watch, in that hey why is my heart warming up from watching a YouTube video sort of way.

As for my wishes? I would want to cure cancer. A time machine in the model of a DeLorean. And my last wish would probably be something dumb like a good slice every time I find myself drunk.
