Gyrfalcon: BigJake: I don't wanna be intentionally poor but I can see the appeal of not buying shiat becuase society says you should. Why would you work your ass off all week so you can afford a house so that you then must spend a big chunk of the weekend maintaining?Quite honestly, I've always lived pretty close to the bone by not buying this year's fancy tech just because. You don't HAVE to have the latest model of iPod, tablet, TV or whatever, shop at hi-end department stores, etc. If I could find a Bookaholics Anonymous, I'd spend even less. Alas, light reading has gotten pretty damn expensive in the last few years.
Gyrfalcon: During the winter, he decamps to Hawaii to surf and avoid the harsh weather. Price's version of the simple life costs $5,000 a year,Uh....okay. So he's a bum.I'm assuming that his plan, if he gets seriously ill, is to just die? Because he can't afford to get sick in any way that won't cost a lot more than that.
