Weapons of Cash Destruction

What does your cash go, on non essential things ? Cigs ? Booze, crusing about unnecesarily in the car ? Hookers ? Realdolls ? Gambling ? I wanna know.

Call them vices. Don’t mention how much you spend on Surge though.

gas, hotels, plane tickets, and miscellaneous travel expenses. I go to as many pro track meets as I can during the spring

Movies, both seeing them in the theater (at least 2 a week) and buying them on DVD.

That, and going out to eat, which is almost always coupled with seeing a movie, as well as at least 1 other time throughout the week.

I love the title of this thread. Maybe I’ll think of it as a mantra next time I’m considering some questionable purchase. Thanks!


Rifle Ammunition.

Much of it is bills from a while ago, which are going to be paid off soon.

A large portion is supplements, but with my job, I use a lot of protein powder and bars for meals, so my grocery bill is significantly smaller.

I don’t waste money on gas because I have a company van AND a company gas card for my job. (sorry, don’t mean to rub it in, :wink:

What don’t I spend money on?? Between supps, eating out, and drinking out, there isn’t much left.

I put my money in the bank.

When I can get a little extra, its protein powder. If I am good on that, then its booze & cigs to go with the booze.

Throwing knives, roundtrip plane tickets, untrackable cell phones and leather gloves.

SUGARFREE! Are you afraid of losing your abs?

Ever since I gave up cigarettes (which is like sawing off your own leg without painkillers) I would venture to say that beer is my one and only useless expenditure. I sometimes wonder if my supplement bill every month from this site is a pointless expense, but then I say “fuck it” and it stays useful somehow.

If drinking beer keeps me from killing folks at work, is it a pointless expense? Meditate on this, I will.

Um, pocket pussy. Weapon of cash destruction? Not. AstroGlide? Not. Where am I going with this? Take a guess.

Every once in a while I’ll take 3 or 4 hundred dollars and go spend it all on some nice new clothes.

Other than that I don’t really spend money on a lot of nonessential things.

I live in LA: gas.

And you’re a Mets fan?

Just moved here.

New music!

Eating out (not pussy, cause that’s free!)

Performance products for my truck!

Renting movies

Supplements that aren’t “essentials”

Women. 100% on women. My job is two miles from my house. I drive a Honda Civic, so not an expensive car. All my unnecessary spending is on dating, and women, and finding new women for dating and friendships.

I spend a lot on gadgets as well. I am addicted to every new gadget that comes on the market.
