If I caught the golden fish, I would ask, firstly, for a good health for all my extended family and even for all people in the world. Secondly, I would ask for peace in the world and that all people in the world become kind. And thirdly, that all my dreams will always come true (and it won't take too long) :) I'm a cheater, I know.

If I caught a golden fish, I would be so confused that probably say nothing at first. Then, if the Fish was patient enough to wait I would ask for a health at least for my family. And then likely I asked for nothing since the human mind has limited capacity and I'm sure that I can't make everybody happy. One's interest is always satisfied at the expense of the other. And furthermore, more often than not people dont't know what they really want and what makes them happy. Let higher power decides what is better for us. So, health will be enough.

If you caught the Goldfish which three wishes would you make?

Long ago I had a big aquarium in my room. There were fanciful water plants, some seashells, smooth pebbles and several tropical fish at first. Then I bought a beautiful goldfish. Soon only inedible things and the goldfish were left in my aquarium. The goldfish grew up quickly in size of my hand. For some reasons my friends who were visiting me wanted to catch the goldfish and make a wish. And they did it sometimes. I made some wishes too. They were so silly that I can’t remember them now.

It's a big question, I haven't given it too much thought until now, but it depends on available time I have to think about my wishes. I'm afraid that I'll be confused when I catch the golden fish, because certainly it will be difficult to choose the most appropriate and usefull wish among all thoughts which will visit my mind at this moment.

Erm, with this question I feel like a celebrity who gives an interview to a popular magazine.
I guess, I wouldn't think up something good if I caught a goldfish. However, now I have time to think and I will be prepared if it happens.
Of course, I would ask health for my family. Also, I would like to have more hours in day. And finally, I would ask to cancel post limits for abroad packages in my country.

This question isn't so simple as it looks. First, there is a difference between what we think we want, and what we actually desire. This problem is considered in the famous novel 'Roadside Picnic' by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky. We can get something unexpected. Second, we need to ask accurately. For example, there is a funny story about our wishes. Negro is in the desert. There aren't anybody all around. He is very thirsty and tired. Suddenly, a magical genie appears and says he will grant him a wish. "I want to be white and I want a lot of water," replies the negro. The genie turns him into a toilet. We must be careful when we ask the magical things to do something. They don't use human logic.

I hope, our Russian golden fish isn't so evil as the foreign genie. I'd like to ask for the following:
1) The health. It's a really important thing but we only think about it when we damage it
2) I want to travel in space, see other stars, and land on other planets
3) A lot of time to enjoy two previous wishes.

What would I ask if I caught a goldfish?

I think that first of all I would be very frightened seeing an animal that can speak. But after being calm down I would ponder some time and ask it to give me three things: 1. A good health for my family, 2. To make one girl fall in love with me because I've recently got dumped by her and she reckons that I am a loser. 3. To have a resbonsibility to read easily Robert Louis Stevenson's books. Next day having caught it again I would exchange it for money

Oh, I like making wishes! So, let’s start!
Yesterday my friend and I talked about figure skating (I love it!) and I realized that most of all I wished for a medal for Mikhail Kolyada! Dear Goldfish, please, I want to see him getting on the podium!
Also I want spring to come and less work, more money. That`s all!

If you caught the goldfish what three wishes would you ask her?

I never thought about wishes which I would require from the magical creature. Maybe I would ask health and wealth to me and my family maybe something else. I would ask to achieve the C2 level in English and passing CAE exam for sure. I might ask to stop wars all over the world and peace in the world. It is a classic desire from our Soviet past. I would ask to improve the relationship between Russia and the other world and prevention new cold war. I do not know. But It is sad then goldfish does not exist. I can only dream about it.

If you caught the goldfish, which three wishes would you wish?

When I was a child I like dreaming about some fairy-tale things like the goldfish. Of course at that time my dreams and wishes were like to have some toys which I could use for real flight, or to go travel to some interesting places. Now I understand that everything in this world is just dust and we don’t really need different toys for adults to be happy. We need good health, some luck and good friends. Therefore I would wish those simple but valuable things which can make us really happy. To put it on a list it would be as follows:

1. Perfect health to my family and my friends.
2. A decent piece of luck to each of us.
3. Something that could be called “intelligent behavior” or “rational thinking”

I think I have those things partially, but not in full extend. However, maybe the life is interesting because it is unpredictable and we have to experience various situations and be not only smart all the time, but sometimes dull as well? Or maybe not?

If you caught the goldfish which three wishes would you ask it to do?

It looks like a tough question to me chiefly because there is so much to fix in the world and it all can't fit into just three wishes. But anyway, if I caught the goldfish and there were only three wishes to make I would go with the following:

1. Make all my family (including me of course) perfectly healthy until the ends of our lives
2. Have an endless source of money in decent monthly amounts for every member of my family
3. Give clearness of mind, critical thinking and logical reasoning to all the Russian people

Si atrapó usted el pez dorado, ¿qué tres deseos pediría que hiciera?

Me parece una pregunta difícil, principalmente porque hay mucho para arreglar en el mundo y no cabe en tres deseos. Pero de todos modos, si atrapaba el pez dorado y si solo hubiera tres que desearía, iría con lo siguiente
1. Hacer que toda mi familia (incluyéndome, por supuesto) esté perfectamente sana hasta el final de nuestras vidas
2. Tener una fuente inagotable de dinero en montos mensuales decentes para cada miembro de mi familia
3. Dar claridad mental, pensamiento crítico y razonamiento lógico a todos los rusos

If you caught golden fish, what magical wishes would you make?

It's generally agreed that everybody from children to grown-ups are dreaming to catch golden fish to get an opportunity to make a lot of wishes come true. But can it retard people from putting efforts to implement their own dreams?
The first point I'd like to make is that just about everything what people want to have won't bring them happiness. People tend to think that 'million dollars staff' like private jet or yacht will help to forget any troubles they face in their daily life.
Another important point is that while chasing pipe dreams your life can fly through very fast. While one people enjoying with what they have around like family, beloved work etc. others can lie on the sofa and wait for golden fish to be caught.
But we should also bear in mind that these dreams help people to get through challenging periods of their life. And maybe, someone would be lucky enough to catch their 'golden fish'.
To conclude, I'd like to catch golden fish. but at the same time I don't hope only on fortune.

I would be so confused that probably say nothing at first - probably, I would be so confused that wouldn't say a word at first.
patient enough to wait - patient enough to wait until I gather/collect my thoughts
then likely I asked for nothing - then, probably, I wouldn't ask for more,/I would ask for nth more,
since the human mind has limited capacity and I'm sure that I can't make everybody happy. One's interest is always satisfied at the expense of the other - as for one person to succeed, another has to lose, and it is beyond my limits/beyond my mind's limits/beyond human limits to make everybody happy

That is if I understood what you meant; my suggestions are only abt wording/lexis, not abt grammar - actually, have no time to look through it thoroughly as the thread is abt to close.

If [mention]Delly[/mention] was a goldfish)))

Once I caught a goldfish by chance.

- Please, let me go, I will do for you everything what you want
- I want to have a big house.
- Okay

Next day

It was sunny weather, you could hear birds signing and water flowing

- Gold fish, come here.
- What has happened?
- The big house seems for me to be too small. You know, I have difficulty reading English books, especially, reading Robert Louis Stevenson. I want to become an advanced learner with 100000 words and expressions in 1 day.
- Okay

Tuesday

- Gold fish, come here.
- What has happened?
- Thank you very much, I am reading Treasure Island with pleasure now, but it is not enough for me.
- What do you want now?
- I want to be rich, give me much money.
- Okay

Wednesday

It was storming. The sea was waving furiosly. You could see and hear a thunder.
I came to the shore in Ferrari. There were Iphone in my pocket and Rolex on my wrist.

- Gold fish, come here.
- What has happened?
- I have recently known something about you
- And what is it?
- Now I am going to tell you. I recognized that you are an administrator of the site. I don't want to be rich anymore. I want to be EFL-FORUM.RU"S Administrator.
- No!!!

There was silence for a moment.

- Why do I have to ask you what to do?

I caught the goldfish and put him into my bag

- Please, don't eat me. Let me go, I will make you the king of the sea and oceans. So I won't be the king of the sea any more. I can give you everything what you want except for making an administrator.
- Oh, don't be afraid, Delly. I am not going to eat you.
-Really?
- Oh, yes. We will just go to the pawnshop.

I jumped in my Ferrari and went home.
