I spent my lunch money on video games

Post by psychotic_mechanic » Wed May 31, 2006 9:00 pm

I stopped by the local thrift store on base and bought a bag of Atari 2600 games for $5. I'll have to go by an ATM before lunch now. :(

Too bad I don't even own an atari, but I couldn't pass up Pac-Man, Ms Pac-Man, Pitfall, Combat and the others. Now I'll just need to buy an actual system or a flashback to add a cart slot to.

I am soooooo proud!

I went a whole week for a dollar a day (a cherry coke for lunch :wink: ) just so I could buy me some mew games

because frying food is actually the most economic way of cooking food

Think about it You surrond the food in heat that is very close to it (thermodynamics and all) verses grilling it on one side

also think about how cheap chicken and flour (plus the small amount of thirteen spices, mostly salt) and those little buns and the little dab of mayo...

Think about it (also they buy in enormous quantities so that automatically drops the price dramatically)

Healthy stuff has to be grown for long periods of time, has to be prepared specifically and blah blah blah it just ain't economical...once they make good, ecnimical healthy food...America will lose weight

Was driving in a truck, so we just put it in the back, its not INASNELY massive, lol, but it weighed bout 100+ lbs, had a tape drive, and a couple PCI IDE cards in it, for some extra hard drives, and it had some screw holes on the bottom where I guess they bolted it to the floor, or screwed in little rubber pegs.
