    Say you have to list five objects you would like to have. Not necessarily Apple related. Yes, this is completely materialistic. My list doesn’t include unreachable things like million dollar super cars or 300 feet yachts. Just a couple of items I hope to acquire as time goes by. I hope you’ll do the same with your list.

    In no particular order:

    A cavalry sabre. Not a replica but the real, hand made and engraved item.
    A late 19th century deck chronometer.
    A P-4a jet helmet with oxy mask.
    A mint copy of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (vinyl).
    The record deck from A Clockwork Orange.

    1. MBP - yes, I would take a MB in a heartbeat, but might as well go all-out for a hypothetical list :cool:
    2. An iMac - to replace this crappy Dell for the rest of the family and give me a desktop, which is occasionally nicer.
    3. An espresso machine - I try to go to the locally-owned-and-operated coffeehouse, but oh, my God, its expensive. Better prices than Starbucks, though, so I shouldn't complain. Stuff tastes better too. But still.
    4. A better keyboard, a la the Logitech Wave - because carpal tunnel sucks and I don't want it.
    5. That secret book that I'm convinced everyone except me has on how to effectively act around women - yeah, i know it doesn't exist, but I'd still like it. Womenfolk are confusing as hell.

    Yes! Also, a copy of the Hard Day's Night soundtrack on vinyl in playable condition (don't care about the sleeve, just the vinyl!).

    You should see National Treasure II, there is this car chase scene where a new C-Class is being chased by a Range Rover Supercharged (not sport, the real thing :cool:). Unfortunately both of them get beat up, I was horrified. My mom has an RRS and I love it. It's not the supercharged but it still has 300hp.

    My List:
    - A Nice House, Maybe 3,000 square feet but quaint and with attention to detail
    - A Range Rover (HSE or Supercharged- I'll take either) w/100k mile warranty
    - Jaguar XJ8 or XJR, SWB
    - 4 year scholarship to the college I decide I want to go to
    - A hefty gift certificate to the apple store

    Someone shot your cat? Where do you live? Was it with a BB gun or something?

    One of my ex girlfriends father was trying to shoot "murderous cats" that were going after the birds he was feeding. (did I fail to mention that he just dumped bird seed all over the ground?) I almost tore his head off when I found out, and made it VERY clear where I stood on things. While he wasn't that bright - I would *think* he'd understand that putting the food into a feeder - off the ground - would greatly improve things for the birds. After all - the cats are only operating on instinct.

    Looking back, I should have just kicked his @$$ - even though it wouldn't have helped my relationship at the time.

    Edit: Sorry for the hijack!

    Here - things I really would like:

    A nice digital SLR with nice lenses
    30" iMac Pro that I wet myself dreaming over
    A good looking Japanese Girlfriend *
    A nice house
    Self-sustaining energy source for said house (solar / geothermal / biomass)

    * = Joke - somewhat, they aren't "Things" but I still want one. :)
