do you own any "rares" in real life?

Recommended Posts

Used to have a pretty nice sports car, until I crashed it (speeding & stupidity). Posted some crash pics as a reminder to other drivers on tip.it.

 

Would still have the money to buy a fancy car, but I realize it's b.s. Why build your ego with 'rares'? To be honest, even a $5k car is just fine. A 30k mercedes benz is more than you'll ever need. Why bother spending upwards of $100k on a sports car that guzzles gas like no tomorrow and has no real utility (and it's worth drops dramatically when you gain mileage on it compared to normal cars)

 

Unless you have *tons* of excess money. People do spend massive cash even on 'shallow' rares like jewelry, shoes, rolex watches etc. that don't really serve any meaningful purpose. The only thing a rare is, is a status item.

 

And believe it or not but most people don't respect unofficial status, only the other shallow ones. Normal people are indifferent or will see you as boasting

I've got a pair of French bayonets from WWI, as well as three framed newspapers from WW2 (Hitler Dead, Germany Surrenders, Japan Surrenders)

That's actually quite cool.

It may seem odd, but I've got one of only ten letters my High School ever awarded for Music. The Music director I had ordered them himself, awarded one every year he was there and then boxed them up and took them with him when he left. Apparently no one else thought it was worth continuing after that (but they still give out sports letters every year... :roll: )

 

I've also got a copy of Spider Man vs. Wolverine signed by both the writer and the artist (I can't recall their names right now), and an *extremely* beat up copy of X-Men #11.

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

I caught 3 kerry king picks at a concert once. Kept 2 and sold 1.

 

I also have a puppet and some piano tuition guides that was made in the 1950's from a box I found in the office. Also an unopened first vinyl print of Never Mind the Bollocks, Heres the Sex Pistols and Black Sabbath (technically both my Dads but meh).
