    A little off topic but this "stimulus cheque" thing, are you US folk prepared for the inevitable great depression that'll come from handing out all that free cash for a year? I'm genuinely curious how it'll all pan out over the next ten years. You know the government will want to claw it back right? There's no such thing as free money.

    You'd be surprised then how poorly some people manage their money.

    The stimulus wasn't necessarily the problem. It was and is all the other bullshit pork they shoveled in on top of it that had nothing to do actual stimulus. Don't bother telling people stuff isn't free, though. It doesn't penetrate their thick skulls.

    As in buying toys?


    Not sure you are aware, but this is considered to be astronomically stupid by a lot of people too.


    Let's not kid ourselves, no one needs this stuff. We could all be saving for whatever. And yes, this applies to every hobby out there.


    Everyone should have at least (IMO) up to six months worth of income in cash (not credit) and no credit debt at all at the end of the month except for the usual stuff. This is setting a very dangerous precedent for a lot of US peeps. They see "free cash" and spend it like idiots and justify purchases because "the money they are receiving was never taken into account to begin with". Just sad man. sad.

    Oh well, you do you (not YOU specifically) and prepare. No president will get you out of the deep mess you are setting for yourself.


    Oh well, I'm really just hoping this thing is not stupidly priced, or else I'm out. I guess I just don't have the money some of you do... And I consider myself to be doing fairly well to be frank.

    We've been on a downhill path for a while. All this is just speeding it up.

    The best thing FT can do, is to release the second trailer as a separate purchase, so people have the option to display their already expensive Stunticon team without having to buy the skeleton.

    Would I trade this country for free toys?

    Do you even have to ask?


    Clawback? Nah, but bacon will be 50 dollars a slice. It's probably a good thing though since my midsection looks like Spindrift 2.0's.

    Lmao, you non US people can't even comprehend the amount of money the US makes a year. The free money, as you so call it, on all 3 stimulus checks, which also helped other nations *cough China, was under 1.2 Trillion. The other Trillions was a fluff and hasn't even been spent. We give a LOT of money and assets to many countries. Stimulus money spent in the US gets recycled back to the government via taxes while keeping our workforce employed. We are, and will continue to be the strongest economy in the world.

    But enough of my rant, when is the last Stunticon coming out Dalianjj?

    We can just transfer the national debt to another credit card with a lower interest rate
