Envy

An uncontrollable urge to possess something that someone else has, which you do not. The trick is in making people want the thing in the first place.

Examples:

  • Apple. Smaller, lighter, smoother, sexier than the competition, so you just have to have one.
  • Airline mileage rewards – you too can be “Elite” and get that extra five inches of legroom if you just slug it out in cattle class for another fifteen trips…
  • youvebeenleftbehind.com – because, when the rapture comes, you want to be even more smug than you are now

  1. I am a Christian and I actually believe in the Rapture. But I do not need a “service” like this. I can tell all my family and friends here and now what I believe. And when the rapture does come and I am really gone :-) then they will remember what I told them… (like “I’ll be darned – that fool was right after all…”)
    Sounds more of a website for those afraid to speak out while they are still here…
