Wowzers....Sounds like most of you guys come from some very rich and loving families.

Yes.

My mother bought me vacation home in Deer Valley, Utah. It's a drag to have to drive up 20 minutes before being able to ski. She also "bought out" the resort for the month of January so I could ski without all the awful snowboarders around. Although, I'll probably only be able to ski 20 of the 31 days because my sister gave my wife and I a cruise.

The sister gave us a cruise through the Carribean. That should be nice. She even paid for our dog to go to the Westchester Estates, and exclusive kennel where she won't have to deal with other dogs barking 24/7. It's a high end B&B for dogs, and they give daily baths there.

My old man paid off our 3 million dollar summer home, and bought me an oil company, but I really wanted a Major League ball team... He also gave me 2 of his used Porsches, a 1968 convertible and a 1964 normal one. But I don't like the color of the convertible, so I'll most likely give it to the Kidney Foundation for the write off.

My wife picked up a custom 320GB iPod signed "Think Different" by Steve Jobs, and a C3-PO costume used in the original 1977 Star Wars - even though she said she would *never* buy me any Star Wars toys...

My 4 year old daughter gave me a Vintage Sandcrawler, but I threw it away when she wasn't looking because it wasn't c-10.

Christmas sucked. What I really wanted was a puppy.

Thank you.

And I forgot the small 800 acre private island my Grammy gave me. It's right next to the one Mel Gibson bought to get away from all the Jews. But it's like I don't even have it, what with all the tropical hardwoods and rainforest that she's having cleared so my pilot Edward can land the plane there... Maybe by the time construction is complete in October 2005 it will feel like I own a piece of the South Pacific, but for now I'm still a strictly Northern Hemisphere Burgeoise.

Oh yeah?

Well I got a country...  Yes a country!  And not a 3rd world one either, but one with a relatively stable economy...  or it was till I got it anyway.  I've already increased unemployment by 50%.

I make the minions of my land dance every day, twice a day, at the 11 o'clock's for my own amusement.  I wear a big pope hat too, and my soldiers wear 18th century uniforms because we're flashy.

Did you know that the miter originated in the Philistine’s Church of Dagon? Indeed, as they worshiped an aquatic god and their priests wore a hat in the shape of a fish head. Christians later adopted this style of headdress.

Much more Prussian, due to the frillyness.

And no I did not know that about their hats, but did YOU know that Neimodians apparantly had similar backgrounds then? :)
