What to Buy With Bonus Money?

Ok guys.

I’m a bit meathead and also a big nerd. So I’m looking for some advice from like-minded men.

I got a nice little work bonus coming my way. I plan to be smart and responsible with 90% of it and pay off some shit.

But I’d also like to buy a thing or two for myself.

And I’m sorta blanking out here…

The only two things that have come to mind are:

iPhone-White-3gs:

and/or

Ivanko D-Gripper:

As you can see I am a meathead first, and a tech-head second. And I only thought of these three things b/c I have them bookmarked.

So if you had roughly $500 to be silly with and buy something fucking badass…what would you spend it on?

More supplements, Arrows for hunting, fishing gear, Captains of Crush grippers, …

Hookers and blow.

I’m actually depressed that I live in the same state as you…can you actually start a thread worth reading for Christ’s sake.

Edit: Drive to Foxwoods and play some Goddamn Blackjack

Anyone who doesn’t know what to do with their extra money should give it to me.

Buy the Woody Gripper (Shugart wrote about it) it comes much cheaper.

And the 3Gs is f***ing awesome (have one too)

Well at nearly 50 I have some advice on this one. A long time ago an LDS (Mormon) man told me to join his church and pay them 10% of my gross wages for the honor of doing so. I respectively declined. I Took a good look at the size of the organization a decided there was some merit to the 10% thing.

At your age if you will honor yourself by paying 10% to a savings account… by the time you are my age you will be able to do all sorts of good stuff for others just like that church does (clears throat/rolls eyes), not to mention how well you can treat yourself… SAVE IT !!

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 box of matches
  • 3 lbs. beef
  • 1 tub of vaseline
  • 3 AA batteries
  • 1 box of “fruit by the foot” snacks
  • a vile of pig’s blood
  • 2 medium russet potatoes
  • 12 condoms
  • 1 socket wrench set
  • a digital camera
  • 1 eye of newt

Still got that spending problem, huh?

hahaha. I literally almost laughed out loud, but then I didn’t. But I still thought about laughing.

Indoor prostitution is legal in Rhode Island. That means you can’t pick up a street walker.

Seconded.

Books. Start with “Total Money Makeover” by Dave Ramsey.

Nice ideas, I too have money burning holes in my pockets.
