Quoted from lordloss:
Honestly though, its a little hard to downplay how poor you are when you have $30,000 in pinball machines. Just because you don't go on vacations or go out to eat a lot doesn't mean anything. You've traded these aspects of life for an arcade.
Just don't get all upset when assumes you have money. You do, its just locked up in your basement.
Quoted from ForceFlow:
Just because they might be worth that now, that doesn't mean that is what someone originally paid for them.
Yeah...but if he sold them now, he'd be LOADED.
