I wish I were Bill Gates. Not for his dashing good looks or sartorial dress sense, you understand, it's his money I lust after (grin).
Actually, I'm incredibly fortunate, because I'm very happy with my life and – truth to tell – I really don't need or want for anything. As you can imagine, this makes life difficult for my wife when it comes to birthdays and Christmas, because she never knows what to get for me.
On the other hand ... I occasionally see something so cool that I think: "Wow, I'd love to play with one of those!" For example, do you remember when the original Segway came out (www.segway.com). I've seen folks scooting around on these little rascals at various trade shows and conferences, and they look like lots of fun (did you know that you can get off-road versions?).
More recently, I ran across something called the Uno, which is a sort of Unicycle-Motorcycle-Segway-Hybrid. This looks mega-cool (and uber-uncomfortable, but what's comfort when you have "cool"?). Oh well, one day...
