    Lately I wonder...

    Pins often are owned by a douchebag in a big house with a nice car & fancy watch.

    Except you guys reading this thread of course. You guys are the exception & not douchebags at all. Probably.

    But for real.

    Higher prices, higher demand, higher prices, higher demand, etc.

    More games are HUO than routed so are they now veblen goods?
