Drunk divorced republican getting a BJ (and subsequently lying about it under oath) that receives just a speeding ticket.

Re: Can You Waste Money?

Its interesting to see where this thread traveled to ..
I dislike the idea that I am wasting money . I prefer to think of it as the trickle theory and thats its good for the economy.
Most of my spending is on my electronic toys. So I would update the tv/stereo etc

Re: Can You Waste Money?

$10k is not that much $$. One could run through that pretty darn fast. Now make it a cool $1 million to burn through and we are talking!

Assuming we are talking truly burning through it for fun and not for profit or to be a good person then here is my list.

Vegas---big money poker table
NV-Mustang Ranch---only the best.
Rent a NASCAR track for the day and "rent" a stock car to run wide open for as long as you want.
Biggest Badest HD Plasma screen you can find with all the speakers and power you want.
New car....duh! Red, Italian, rare, fast and uninsurable.
Twin Engine aircraft...learn to fly it with a personal teacher.
Boat...40-60 footer...power.
If there is anything left........Mustang Ranch...

Fast I suppose, uninsurable definitely, but a red Italian woman at The Mustang Ranch? ( Which incidentally, I believe has closed.) Maybe that red uninsurable Italian did 'em in.

Ditto on everything he said. I like the way you think, SteveR.
