    Is it a sin or a grey area?

    Please define "it" and "gray area".

    Goldie, you didn't let me get the poll posted before you asked that question.

    Always speaking negatively of your church, your neighbors, your peers.

    I think that one sure has to be. No sleep, eating and drinking would really be an art, and you never say anything else.

    On the first one, I don't think it's a sin to drink alcohol in the bar section, so I definitely wouldn't have a problem with the situation in question!

    I agree Stefan, glad nobody so far is quite mental enough to pick the first one. I only voted for 4 of them, and mostly they are the ones which have had the most votes.

    >Wishing you had your neighbor's house or car

    Are they for sale? Is his car unique or are there a million similar cars on the road? Have you made him an offer?

    You saying it might be wrong to want stuff that is routinely for sale? This an "Amish" question? Do you use a computer at your library or do you own one? Should you own a computer if some kid 10,000 miles down the road whom you have never met is hungry?
