When I was a kid, among other things I wanted to become as a grown-up, there's one which I knew was extremely unlikely. Only in college I discovered that was not only unlikely, but utterly impossible.

Probably a quick one, but I incidentally remembered that today and I think it is funny

Forgot again to add the username in the title. To err is human but to persevere in error is demonic. Hoping that I won't end up as Mephisto's right hand, I would ask one of the moderators to correct the mistake

Would you say that most kids would have this dream? Is the law involved at all? Is the supernatural involved?

Did you want to be something reserved for a different gender? Nationality? Perhaps you wanted to be President of the United States, for example?

Would you say that most kids would have this dream? Not really Is the law involved at all? Yes Is the supernatural involved? No

Did you want to be something reserved for a different gender? No Nationality? Yes Perhaps you wanted to be President of the United States, for example? Precisely. Just add why it was utterly impossible and finish this off

Because you weren't born in the US? And the law of jus soli makes it such that only natural-born citizens are allowed to become President?

Because you weren't born in the US? And the law of jus soli makes it such that only natural-born citizens are allowed to become President? Indeed. I was aware that in order to be a president of a country you should be a citizen of that country. However I discovered only in college that to be president of the US you should be born there. To date, I didn't found a similar provision in some other nation's constitution (I didn't looked up closely, though). Thus endeth my small puzzle, with the deserved *** SPOILER ***
