What to Buy With Bonus Money?


#1

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?


#2

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


#3

Hookers and blow.


#4

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


#5

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


#6

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 !!

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.
