I guess I'd have to get an invisibility cloak. Since we're technically "Muggles", a wand and the likes would be useless...

Pretty sneaky. I'll give you credit for that answer, though ;)

I'm thinking the flying car, preferably before it got smashed to bits by the tree.

Extra powerful magic, despite being a muggle :p

I want Dobby.
He needs a friend, and I need someone to clean my room occasionally.


Or Harry Potter himself. :drool:

Sorcerer's Stone most definitely.

Make a few pounds of gold at a time, sell it for mad amounts of money, and immortality

Voldemort's magic. Without the ugly.

Imagine, being the only person with magic in the human world :D And I wouldn't need a wand!

MUAHAHAHAHA.

I mean, who needs gold and money when they can imperio muggles to do their will, without any consequences? When they can torture people who try to screw them over, and make them think they're experiencing karma or something.

That is what I would want. *Nods*

 Philosopher's Stone is too tempting in a way.  If you used it to make gold from lead, you would most certainly not be able to live in a first world country with any sort of an income tax; otherwise, you would be investigated for money simply appearing from no where.  And you couldn't use it to live forever, because again, eventually the game is up.  And once people know about it, well, all the money in the world isn't going to last you very long to afford the kind of protection you'd need from someone trying to kill you or steal the Stone.  Hell, even the gold market is going to be against you, because you stand to devalue the price of gold by creating it from nothing, so soon it'd be made illegal to buy from you, and you'd have to go to extra lengths to sell it.  Same if you did another high value metal like silver.  I think you'd have to run a salvage/scrap company, and boost your recovery with extra scrap coming in.  And at small values so as to not arise suspicion.  Copper would be good, though - price on that is currently very good.

Furthermore, you could not fall in love or have children unless you planned to likewise give them the Elixir of Life.  And your current family members; would you be able to let your parents die when you could keep them alive?  And immortal life does not guarantee good health or even a good life.  I think Flamel was healthy because he was a wizard (although granted, it never specifically states Flamel is a wizard, but I would assume so).  But the more people you give the elixir to, the more people have to know your secret, the bigger chance you'd be betrayed or used.  That's unfortunate to think of family, but greed can be a terrible thing.  The Philosopher's Stone would only be useful if you could control yourself to use it to create small amounts of gold when you most needed it; and I don't know if it'd be worth the cost at that point.

I honestly can't see the use of an Invisibility Cloak.  You still have mass - you'd still trigger most alarms, and I really can see the only purpose of it is to be somewhere you're not supposed to be.  And I'm not a voyeur, so not even that.

Flying car presumably doesn't trigger any sort of UFO detection when invisible, but you'd have to at some point go from flying the car to driving it, and when you're driving it you must be visible if you want to avoid a wreck.  Or if you want to get into the car at all.

Presumably I'm still a Muggle, so a wand would be useless.  If I could be a witch, I guess a wand would be useful, but I'd need a spellbook, don't you think?  Even then, to stand out so would be dangerous for my life.

I think I'd go with a Kneazle.  I'd like a smart cat.  My cats are freakin' idiots.
