Cast a Wish

From Folly (via randform). Pull on the little triangles to read wishes. To cast a wish, type in letters - they should appear on the ribbon under the tree. When done, click on and pull down ribbon. Aim at tree. If your wish hits a tree node, it will get saved. If applet doesn't work or runs annoyingly slow, go to this page.

Update: I removed the applet do to copyright reasons. Please click on the picture below to use the wishtree.



After a day of wishing, I found a couple of new wishes on the tree :-)

  • I wish I understood quantum mechanics
  • I wish there were more women in physics with me
  • I wish I my paper got published
  • I wish I knew how to quantize gravity
  • I wish my proposal was accepted
  • I wish I could travel faster than the speed of light
  • I wish there was more funding for fundamental research

And here's the one I cast: I wish all these wishes became true.

Bee, Thanks for the story of Thor in Germanic mythology.
You know, if you weren't already a married woman, I would simply be unable to resist or stop myself trying to whisk you away or whisk you off your feet, faster than the speed of light
