    Should I get Thurst and Dirge when I have the funds for a bit, or should I wait until my paychecks get a little bigger to absorb the brunt of something that expensive. I mean, it's not like they're selling out yet, so that gives me time to ponder.

    1) Do you want them?
    2) Can you afford them?

    If "yes" GOTO "buy"
    If "no" GOTO "don't buy"

    What's the fun in that? Sometimes you need to advertise that you're gonna get something so you can get high fives.

    ... you've just explained something that's puzzled me for years. Why DO people ask if they should buy something they want? I kind of understand people asking for advice when they've got multiple options, but it's only now I understand why you'd ask if you should buy something you know you want.

    If you're really asking for financial planning advice here, then the only advice I can offer is that you relinquish control of your money to me. I've got this friend in Nigeria who only needs a couple grand for some legal fees to access billions of dollars. I'm telling you man, we'll be rolling in japanese exclusives if you front me the seed money.

    No seriously, if you want something and can afford it, then buy it, if not, then don't. That's your business.

    Ebay:
    You should be safe enough to wait a little bit longer. They are good sellers, but they aren't flying off the shelves anymore either. If you're talking about waiting another month you're safe.

    yeah, I figured that by the time the theatre I work at gets busy, I should be getting the hours to cover the coneheads. Right now I'm gonna focus on the upcoming Macho Man DVD (OH, YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!, DIG IT!) and start the search for The Fallen (any sightings in Jersey yet?)

    I am a programmer, you have just demonstrated what is wrong with the goto statement. From above, if you like the toy you skip over the fact that you cant afford it (assuming the "buy" label if further down).:)
