Synopsis
A mountain climber finds a flying saucer in a glacier. Hacking it free, out comes a pink alien trapped for "uncounted years". With his mental powers, he'll grant three wishes - like a genie!.. Bill takes his girl's class on a picnic, and wishes the rain would stop. It does - all over Earth for weeks. He wishes back the rain. One wish left. His girl is irked by his "joking". He wishes he could show her - and he's transformed into an alien! He wishes it had never happened - and he's normal! Four wishes? No, he briefly had alien mental powers and could have wished for anything!

In 2260, a library's 1960 almanac in transit is bomb-blasted to the past. This could change history forever!.. In 1960, a hobo finds the almanac. He's saved from a train wreck, blabs so another hobo finds a gold mine, gets caught in a sting operation betting on a horse race. He's not getting lucky nor changing history! He reads about a wonder metal invented by "Thomas Baxter", but invents it first. Rich, he learns he was orphaned and IS Thomas Baxter! At year's end, he puts the almanac in a time capsule... In 2261, people get back the almanac. "We're saved!"
