You may have three wishes.

- I wish that wish counts were represented as unsigned 64-bit integers.
- I wish that no underflow checks were performed on wish counts.
- I wish to have three fewer wishes.

@alexbuzzbee So you have zero wishes? Or 2^64-3 if the genie counts the already used ones.

@mdhughes Depending on sequencing, either two or three wishes have been expended (I asked to have fewer wishes, not that I had begun with fewer wishes). So I have either 1 or 0 wishes left. 1-3 = -2 = 2^64-2, 0-3 = -3 = 2^64-3.

@mdhughes Because D&D players are *exactly* the type of people who would find a working way to get an unlimited amount of wishes by manipulating some quirk like this.
