You guys are fucking nuts.
Actually, on the whole Rolex are great investment pieces. The value of them often goes up quickly (sounds odd but you'll often pay above RRP for a used one) and it should increase steadily over time

Spending $10k or more on a watch actually makes more sense than spending $10k on a guitar
Yeah I get the investment thing, I just think selling a guitar to fund something like that would not bring you anywhere as much joy as that guitar does :) Altho' I guess you could buy 3 of the guitars later on :lol:

I shouldn't be so judgey as I've just dropped $10k on two mountainbikes.. but I don't regret it at all, they're something that will get used and bring much joy, and probably only worth half what I paid for them already, lifes to short to worry about stuff like that :)

This... very much this...

A friend's sister was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago. She has gone for all kinds of treatment, including a trip to Mexico for something not yet approved/available here. She has had mastectomy too. That was that.. but last year they found a tumor in the back of her head. More chemo, radiation, the whole shebang. This past week her vision started going, and cognitive function started going downhill. MRI on Wed, saw the doctor yesterday, and it has pretty much spread to cover the whole top of her head. It took her over 24 hours to understand and digest what the doctor was saying because of reduced cognitive function.

She is married with 3 kids, and not even 30 yet...

Go buy a Rolex, if you can! Feck it, I'm buying a Kemper as soon as I can afford one!

What the fark indeed. After she has had time to digest the news she recorded an update for us all. We just listened to it earlier today. OMG, what a pillar of strength. I cannot even begin to imagine what it's like for her. Her speech is also weirdly affected. For example, her wee son woke up crying at 5am this morning. She went to cuddle him and was about to ask "Would you like a glass of milk". What came out was "Would you like to go feed the ducks"! She burst out laughing, and was still giggling as she retold the story in her recording.

Keep an eye out and thoroughly enjoy the seemingly small, yet immensely important, stuff... don't sweat the truly insignificant, ineffectual, stuff. Easier said than done, but I'm determined to learn to do so myself.

Was just thinking today
Why do I spend most of my time worried about work and yet I've got much more to be concerned at home
Work isn't
Life is
Fuck work
Hurrah
Seriously fuck work

It's actually quite easy to learn; all you need is a terminal illness.
Never said the lessons were cheap.

I'd call that learning on the job. I'd rather go a more academic route myself... hopefully a luxury still affordable to me for quite a while yet.

All this is why I drink so much. I probably don't have a terminal illness, but I'm drinking my way too one. I voted for euthanasia though, so at least I can end it all when I need too :)

Euthanasia is good, why shouldn't you be able to chose when you've had enough. I voted "yes" too but I might have that drinking thing as well...

I think age does that. I ache and I hurt so I drink more than I should...
