Spoiler! A little side-note

Well, you've mentioned you're from New England, which by extension means you're from the Americas, broadly defined.

Well, without Christianity, early missionary efforts by the Spanish would not have led to the establishment of encomiendas, or feudal plots of land staffed by Native Americans and owned by Europeans. Without these, the various debates that occurred under Charles V and Philip II that eventually provided both legal and theological justifications for colonialism would not have occurred, meaning the rest of Europe likely wouldn't have gotten into the colonialism game either, meaning the Dutch and later the English would not have colonized what is today the Northeast of the United States, meaning that New England as we know it (and therefore all the people from New England) would never have been born.

So, granted, but you don't exist anymore. :grin:

Also, sorry for any historical inaccuracies -- I'm a hobbyist historian at best and I wanted to take the route most familiar to me as a quasi-Spaniard -- there are about eight million other reasons none of us would likely be alive if Christianity hadn't happened.

Now, with that out of the way...I wish I had a 4.0 GPA at university.
Well another very important factor about colonialism was economic. Yeah the Spanish justified the whole endeavor as evangelizing the local population, but at the end they just wanted a way to get spices from China, Japan and India. Found the continent by accident. And there was a lot of land and gold-silver here in America. What I am saying is that the Spaniards and eventually all the European powers would have come here regardless of religious affiliation. Because money!

Oh I had one of those electronic dictionaries. I was great! I wish it still worked. If someone made something like that and gave it the ability to occasionally download new words-definitions online i would buy it!

So granted but now you must use that and only that dictionary, also it missing half the words you want to know with.

Since we still wishing for somewhat old technology I wish i had a new IBM mainframe

Granted, but due to a programming glitch, you can only use it to play Snood.

I wish I had the skill and determination to clean the couch I'm sitting on. I'm a mechanic. We can't own white things.

Granted, but the sofa has been covered in CV grease and you only have water and paper towels to clean it. No brake cleaner allowed.

I wish I had a garden to stretch my legs in during this lock down (I live in a 4th floor flat).

Granted, but its either too hot or too cold for you liking. I wish that the annoying seagull that attacks my living room window every morning with out fail at 8am would stop. They have decided to nest on the roof and taken a personal vendetta against that one window.

Granted, but only because a hurricane threw a tree at it, destroying the best and killing the bird. As well as wrecking q good portion of the building.

I wish trees could grow a random blue leaf, just to mess with biologists.
