    Several retired and active military here,Thank you all!

    Very curious to why someone would "tilt" this post. Do you have a problem with the people that protect this country or just the person that posted this comment?

    Big thanks to all the men and women who protect this country and my family( and my right to play pinball).
    To all you terrorist bastards:
    May you tilt your next pipe bomb a little to hard and loose your face!!

    Quoted from pmWolf:

    toyotaboy said:Jesus! If a couple of school teachers can afford all those pins, I don't feel so bad about teacher's salary anymore.
    No kids, and I've never spent more than $1500 on a car in my life. (Currently, I'm driving a 94 Dodge Shadow that I've had since before I was in college).
    Also, it's not like I went out and bought all of those pins last month. (*plop!* "Here's the cash! I'll take 50 of your nicest pins...just load them up!")
    You are looking at an insane amount of work that has taken well over a decade. (Buying non working stuff, learning to fix things, scrimping and saving and working hard to sell stuff so that I could afford something else to fix up and sell....etc etc etc).
    It just shows that even if you make crappy wages, you can accomplish great things if you are smart with your money!
    In any case, I'm very proud of my collection. I feel it is a reflection of hard work and determination!

    I've had a few friends that are teachers throughout my life and from my experience there have been two types. There's the children are our future and there minds are like sponges that need nourishment and love type. Then there's the(this would be me) when I walk out of these doors I hope to god I don't see another one of these snot nose little bastards till morning they are all evel little creatures that pay the bills type.

    I love my kids but that's as far as my love for kids go.
