    I'd make the world vegan, everlasting peace and stop climate change.

    Not very original.

    Change 3 things? First, the only religion would be Christianity and we would all try to be good people, I would lower the gas prices (alot) so we could ride around in our 10mpg white '86 Chevy flatbeds- wait- or is that just me? And Third... um... Doctors, Teachers, people who help other people and are heros would get paid more than d*mn celebrities that don't do squat except gripe! And they have all the money! C'mon!

    ^^^why would you want everyone to be christian?
    Well, for me: 1. Everyone would be an atheist :P
    2. Unlimited supplies of everything (money, oil, food, water, etc)
    3. My horse and I would be PERFECT, get a 100 in every dressage test we did with no health issues etc
    Watch me change my mind about this 10 times.

    Nice guys. Agree with the gas. We have a diesel Ford that gets about 10 mpg on a good day.

    I know this is hypothetical (obviously) and for fun but it makes me think about the world and how it works and how it could work.

    While I am agnostic I think if I could give human being faith in something bigger I might, even if its not true (not saying your religion isn't true - just my beliefs). Maybe not an organised religion, but when families and communities were based around religion there seemed to be more comradeship and a drive to stick together. I think this has been lost across most of the world, even in many communities are still religious. The belief in something more takes away some fear, doubt etc. I don't think we need all these "rules" that religions enforce, but a general faith could be good for people.

    An endless supply of everything would make everything worthless and then there would be no one to clean our street, work in our factories etc. We'd have an endless supply of wheat but no bread, large amounts of raw oil, but no one working in the refineries, because money means nothing and they don't see a reason to do it. Its interesting.

    Sorry. I'm a sociology and philosophy major.

    Wow, three things... I would have to say, 1. I would want more people to understand the problems with Keynesian and socialistic economic theory, 2. I would want that "download" plug-in machine from "The Matrix" to be real, and 3. For horse show days to automatically be always sunny, low humidity, and 73 degrees.

    Considering a world where scarcity was nonexistent (sheer impossibility, but keeping with the hypothetical things to change ), an endless supply of wheat, but no bread, there is incentive to make the bread because you need food. Incentive to work the refinery to make gasoline/kerosine. Now, bread and full gas cans falling from the sky... that's a little different, but even when production inputs are infinitely available, human time is not. Humans have only so many years, and so many hours in a day. A consumer good, immediately serviceable to use, requires that a capital good (wheat, for example) be "mixed" with human time and effort to exist. There would still be incentive for people to produce with infinitely available input goods, at least until enough immediately useable goods had been produced to allow constant leisure time... but then eventually the produced goods would run out... OK, I'm rambling now (sorry, I'm an economics major), but you're right, Saskia, really interesting idea.

    Actually, I'm going to have to disagree with the religion comments. First of all, while I am an atheist myself, I think having a God or higher existence to believe in gives people a lot of hope. I would never abolish any religion, because that's what some people depend on. Have you ever heard miracle stories of people with cancer or other deadly diseases living longer than any doctor expected because they prayed and believed God would help them fight? Even if it's not true, studies show that a positive attitude helps in the healing process. So even though I don't believe it, whatever helps other people, let em do it. Not to mention a lot of people don't sin because of their religion and stuff. That's good, right? XD

    Anyways, the 3 things I would change:

    1. End poverty.
    2. End crime.
    3. Make sure from now on, nobody ever buldozes a natural animal habitat for the purpose of building things for humans.
