Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

What are you gonna do with Free Money? (2008 Stimulus Check, Maybe NSF56k)

So, the time is here. The checks are being printed and the money is being transferred all across the great nation of ours. Will it help the economy? who knows. Do I want my fuckin' money? you bet your ass I do.

So what does everyone plan to do with your monies this spring? New TV? Take a Vacation? Down payment on a car?

So write some ideas, throw up some pictures and lets see what diabolical schemes we can realize on the taxpayer's dime.

What I plan to buy with my stimulus check:

    Hmmm the MGS4 PS3 pack does seem quite tempting. But then again I can hear new comic books calling my name. It is a very tough choice.

    I have the Merc Gaming Keyboard, non-illuminated. My previous keyboard was illuminated but with the money I saved (it also came with a headset) I was able to get a better video card (EVGA Geforce 8800 GTS 512) and stay in budget, woot! I also have the G5, good times.

    I love when you toss out all your old ratty socks and undies and replace them with tons of entirely new stuff. It is like christmas morning for me. I do that like bi-yearly.

    I think we have been asking this questions every month so far.

    I will either buy myself a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens

    Scuba Diving lessons

    or possibly a PS3 or 360

    or maybe some boots.

    I went to go buy new socks and all the Wal-Marts and Targets were out of the kind of socks I buy (FotL Big&Tall Ankle Socks) so I had to buy "no-shows" instead. They are alright... but my ankles are cold.

    It is such a sad revelation when you start looking at things you need versus want and you buy the need. Being a grown up sucks.

    Thats the cool thing about younger children, easy to please. Once they get older it gets more expensive, tvs, computers, video game systems, fad clothing.

    I'm gonna need it when gas gets to $10 a gallon.
