Thats exactly the kind of elitist crap I hate and why I don't post on this forum. Buying footstamps dirt cheap...crackhead connections...cars with eject buttons. You probably still have all your teeth too. I HATE YOU BOND!!!!! :-)

I thought you said you said you did not post on this forum oh maybe I'm mistaken or maybe you meant only 1,346 times? biggrin.gif

Maybe to keep the non big boys away, the forum should charge $1 for making each post here. But that will never happen, its all about maximizing the number of hits so you can charge more for ads. smile.gif

I have a fully functional Ark of the Covenant. I setup elaborate events to lure people in and then talk someone into 'opening' the Ark itself (I am careful not to look until the lid is safely back on).

Once the unpleasantness is over with, I collect the remaining wallets, bags, car keys and smartphones and sell them through my shell companies and eBay.

You'd be surprised what my 30 EBT cards can buy.wink.gif

You hear about what those goofballs in Louisiana did when they found out there was no limit on their EBT card because of a temporary glitch? They invaded Walmart like roaches and were leaving with 10 carts at a time. And then when the store announced the limit had been reinstated they just left their carts sitting in the aisles and left.

In its current state, my liver is worth may be a pair of interconnects. I'm thinking of offering some bone marrow for a DAC upgrade.

Since I live in Japan, I own a successful vending machine company. We mainly sell used girls underpants.

Also, my theater sound absorption was made by recycling bra pads and fitting them into the sound panels.

I also live in Japan. My sideline is to go to Uniqlo and buy cheap cotton panties. I wear them for a day and then I sell them to creepy guys in anoraks.

To fund my Datasat RS20i, I've had to increase output, so I wear five pairs of panties at once.

It keeps me warm and toasty in the winter, but it can't be doing my sperm count much good....

Although this thread is very funny lol, I just thought I would say that not everyone is super rich here. You do not have to be super rich to have stuff like this - just wise budgeting and adjusting your lifestyle to fit your goals of whatever purchase you wish to make, that cannot be made immediately :)

Absolutely true. It's all about choices. Some people want a boat, or a sports car, or a ski vacation to Vail every year. Some want a top notch 3 chip DLP projector.

Let's not forget 80% of people just want to pay the rent/mortage, another 15% want to do the same AND get their kids to a decent school, and the trade-off between ski vacation and DLP projector is only an issue for the remaining 5%.
