My Third Wish ...

"For my third wish, I wish for an infinite number of wishes. Thanks, Genie."

There's always some smartass who thinks s/he's really funny by asking for more wishes on that third one. So let's play along with that. What if you would dilute the effectiveness of that last wish by however many you asked for?

For instance, if you asked for one wish, it would for sure (100%) come true. If you asked for two more wishes, each of those would have a 50-50 chance at coming true; three would be 1/3, and so on. If that were the case, is there any reason you would still opt to have more than one wish?
