Cybernetic: Lafave, who has Metro-issued work cards allowing her to dance at Cheetahs, Cover Girls and Babes strip clubs, is free on $40,000 bail, court records show.So, in Las Vegas, you need some kind of permit from the government to dance at a strip club?
NightOwl2255: The $35k may be way overblown (yes, that was intentional). You can pick up a nice Day\Date with Presidential band for $5k used. For the haters, it's important to note, you can buy a Rolex, wear it for 10 years and sell it for 75% of your cost. And if you wear it sparingly you can often sell it for more that you paid for it.
sandi_fish: It's stupid to wear expensive jewelry in places like Vegas. Many con artists/thieves/pickpockets in that town. If they see you with expensive stuff you become a target.

Net cost about $60. Compare it to that used Rolex which will cost you over $1000 for the ten years' use, assuming it doesn't get hidden in someone's cockpit. And that Timex is far more accurate.Could Ferrari sell cars if they didn't perform better than a Focus?Clearly I don't get the Rolex mystique. But I sort of admire them in a retro way like I admire an IMSAI computer or a Motorola brick phone. Sill, I prefer a Mac and iPhone.

FlashHarry: Cybernetic: I first started wanting a Breitling back in the mid-1990s, and back then a Chronomat would set you back around $4000 - $4500. These days, that same watch seems to be going for around $10,000. I still want one, but the odds of me ever having $10K lying around and nothing better to do with it than buy a watch--well, let's just say that those odds are pretty slimgo vintage. you can pick up a vintage breitling for under $2k. i picked up a vintage rolex datejust for $1,200 and it keeps time to within 5 seconds a day. not bad for a 40+ year old watch.
Jument: So basically you paid $1200 for a watch that can't keep time.
Jument: I've never understood the obsession with expensive watches. I'm just not into jewelry, I guess. Give me a $40 Timex and actually does useful stuff any day.
