I strongly dislike judging other people's sources of happiness, especially when they have zero impact on me or the wellbeing of others around them.

right now there's a dude on nzrolex.com telling his mates he's selling his rolex to buy a gibson les Paul.... and they're all telling him he's crazy!

.... they're also telling him that he should keep the watch, and just buy a cheap guitar because they all sound sort of the same anyway!
