stuff you spend way too much money on

Comics, man. Every time I walk into the mall it seems I can never avoid the comic store. I end up walking out with like $20 worth of shit I will read once and then file away never to be seen again. This wouldn't be so bad if I didn't visit like twice every goddamned week.

I used to have this problem with DVDs, but now I have netflix which ends up saving me quite a bit. Also, hookers and cocaine.

But seriously, what about you SE++??

    Food.

    I spend roughly 5 or 6 dollars a day on food.

    I only shop on a daily or every other day basis though so i don't save any money from buying a ton of shit all at once.

    Gadgets and electronics. I have three desktops, a couple laptops, a couple PDAs, a few cells, a big TV, bunch of wireless and bluetooth gadgets, a WACOM Intuos3 tablet on the way, etcetera.

    On top of this, I am usually an early-adopter, so I end up paying a retarded amount for something I'll just replace in a few months to a year.

    Yeah, totally. I'm not a pack a day bad, but it does add up.

    I bought three cartons of Marlboros when I went on vacation in the Philippines for $5 each and those have lasted me a good long while. Nice to have extra money not spent on cigs

    This is especially frustrating when you live in a dorm and don't have the space to store groceries or, for that matter, the ability to get to a grocery store in the first place.

    Cafeteria prices are outrageous

    Oh Jesus, don't get me started on liquor.

    I drink mainly top-shelf bourbons and scotch.

    I probably spend at least $200/month on the stuff I drink just at home.

    It didn't break down. I had a flat, and for some reason, neither I nor the AAA guy could get the wheel off.

    Then the people I had it towed to told me that they had no trouble at all with it.

    Yeah I played DoW and looked up the TT game.

    Fuck that. I'm not into playing TT at all but if I ever was the prices can go fuck themselves. Though, it's meant as a life long hobby so in that perspective it's not so bad I guess.

    sometimes you need to give the wrench a few taps with a hammer to get the nut off, which is not something easily done on the side of the road without a hammer

    Back when all I cared about was getting drunk, I would buy that 105-proof vodka, because it was strong, and only cost about $12.95 here in Washington.

    I had an odd summer years back where I bought a ton of books and full runs of comics off of ebay, all being obsessed with it. Like I got really long or complete runs of Robin, Impulse, Legion of Superheroes, L.E.G.I.O.N., a lot of Justice League, Legend of the Dark Knight, etc etc. That was a depressing summer looking back on it.

    Zonky, that's the strange thing. The nuts all came off just fine. I did that before the AAA fella even showed up. But the wheel was fucking LODGED...I could not move it even in the slightest.

    A 5 minute google search has lead me to believe that this has never happened in all of human history.

    So fucking good. Seriously, this might be my all-time favorite series.

    And HBO agreed to a 1:1 adaptation for the series.
