Another meme.

I just read this in docbrite's LJ, and it seemed one of the oddest memes I've seen. I'm not sure I can articulate just why. Perhaps I question the author's definition of the word "spoiled," though that definition is only stated implicitly. Many of the criteria seem damned silly, arbitrary, or peculiarly subjective. And non-needed? As in, non-essential? Anyway, yeah, behind the frelling cut, yo:

Do you have:
(X) your own cell phone
( ) a tv in your bedroom
(X) an iPod
( ) a photo printer
( ) your own phone line

( ) TiVo or a generic digital video recorder
(X) high-speed internet access (aka not dialup)
( ) a surround sound system in bedroom
( ) dvd player in bedroom
( ) at least a hundred DVDs
(X) a childfree bathroom (er...never mind)
(X) your own in-house office
( ) a pool
( ) a guest house
( ) a game room
(X) a queen-size bed (there are two of us)

( ) a gym membership
( ) large exercise equipment at home

( ) a pool table
( ) a tennis court
(X) local access to a lake, large pond, or the sea (this one's just dumb)
( ) your own pair of skis
( ) enough camping gear for a weekend trip in an isolated area
( ) a boat
( ) a jet ski
( ) a neighborhood committee membership
( ) a beach house or a vacation house/cabin
( ) wealthy family members
( ) two or more family cars
(X) a walk-in closet or pantry (pantry)
(X) a yard
( ) a hammock
( ) a personal trainer
(X) good credit
( ) expensive jewelry
( ) a designer bag that required being on a waiting list to get
(X) at least $100 cash in your possession right now
(X) more than two credit cards bearing your name (not counting gas cards or debit cards)
( ) a stock portfolio

Do you:
