    I cheat

    #1602 2 years ago

    I haven't won a pinball tournament (main or side) in the past 3 yrs or so.
    That's like a record of 0 and 49.

    Lately I'm getting pretty good at finishing anywhere from 3rd to 14th place.

    #1603 2 years ago

    I'm very late to this thread.

    #1604 2 years ago

    I’m checking my IFPA page every day waiting for Pinburgh ‘19 results to lift me out of the 4000’s.

    I find myself wondering if Mo is still one angry mofo..and i also wonder if he was higher than giraffe's nutsack the other day when he went off on that rant!

    Yeah, that was weird as hell.

    Am I the only one who lifts his arms with the magician during levitating ball in Pinball Magic?

    I don't like color DMDs. I much rather prefer the standard DMD color.

    I do the arm swoops along with the TOTAN genie before choosing a wish.

    I roar back at Smaug when the multiball starts sometimes on Hobbit.

    #1612 2 years ago

    Really impressed with how nice the eatpm I just got was and I like the game, but won't keep it since its common. Only traded since I had never owned it and figured can't lose money on it.

    My pins sit for weeks on end unplayed.

    More excited by the thrill of the chase than is healthy.

    Check back on games I make offers on but get turned down. Makes me chuckle when people are still bumping sale posts months later because no one will touch it at their crazy price.

    #1613 2 years ago

    I confess that i haven't read the latest drama and boycotting playfields and pinball manufacturers threads about playfield issues.
    I have to deal with some spillover into other threads i'm reading and for sale lists etc, but not interested in 'screaming at the birds' as Leo Sayer put it.

    #1614 2 years ago

    I howl like the werewolves on BSD when I complete one of the werewolves video modes!!

    #1615 2 years ago

    Sold DE Star Wars twice!

    #1616 2 years ago

    I figured EatPM was a pinball game similar to Diner. I googled it to see what one looked like and discovered it is Elvira and the Party Monsters. Bummer.

    #1617 2 years ago

    All the games I want most I’ve already owned and sold.

    #1618 2 years ago

    I’m too lazy to pick up a knife if I can cut it with my fork.

    #1619 2 years ago

    I eat off paper plates because i am too lazy to wash up a real one. I do use stainless cutlery though.

    #1620 2 years ago

    I travel a lot for work and I can’t sleep in a hotel room on the first floor....top floor preference

    I like cake. My favorite is birthday.

    I have at least a dozen tape measures spread throughout my house and everytime I need one I'll be damned if I can find one

    I re-use paper plates.

    well.. that help's explain why i don't own 46 pins yet.. time to change my ways!

    #1626 2 years ago

    On 2 occasions I've flipped games that I already own, not realizing that the ones i sold were actually nicer than mine.

    #1627 2 years ago

    Forgive me Pinside for I have sinned

    It has been over 12 months since I purchased my last Pinball, and I am weak and in fear of a relapse.

    The Pinball Demons are taking over.

    #1628 2 years ago

    I still hold the left flipper up on most machines with plunge button when plunging because I played a lot of Attack from Mars, even though it doesn't do anything

    #1629 2 years ago

    I deliberately screw up mine cart mode on IJ just to see Michigan J Frog dance across the screen in full colour.

    I have done it so many times I can't actually do the proper sequence correctly anymore.

    I love the sound of a small engine. Any small engine. Pressure washer....leaf blower....weed eater. You name it. Just makes me wanna pick it up and run it!

    #1631 2 years ago

    When I put leftovers from lunch in the refrigerator at work, I never come back for them.

    #1632 2 years ago

    I just bought a project 1947 Willys CJ2A & have been neglecting my pinball machines....

    #1633 2 years ago

    I just drained the "Batman 66 pin for $89" thread. Should have long ago!!

    So does the rest of my building at work. To the point now where the refrigerator has made the whole place stink as a result. It has become a biohazard and everyone is too afraid to clean it. Not that it would probably do anything at this point.

    #1636 2 years ago

    I set my games to 5 balls. The place I grew up playing at had everything set to 5 balls. It was many years later before i knew 3 balls was normal.

    Quoted from yaksplat:

    When I read this and saw the avatar (but without looking at the name of the of the Pinsider who posted it), I thought it was friend and moderator Jodester who posted it. Then I immediately thought to myself, "that's how that son-of-a-gun is setting those high scores on his machines", eventhough I know he doesn't do that, …as far as we know.

    #1638 2 years ago

    The only thing keeping me from scratching my eyes out with my truck keys while sitting in trade school, waiting for my half-hour late teacher, is constantly refreshing the pinside forums for new posts.

    I think we've established that Jodester plays with the glass off.

    I made it through class, and I can see Vid1900 has yet to return.

    I check this thread when it has new posts, then think of things to confess to. Then I can't remember if I've already confessed and I'm too lazy to check, so i don't post anything.

    Someone gave me an Outback gift card. I purposely waited until the wife was out of town so I could FEAST all by myself.
    Went last night. Filet, lobster, soup, salad....

    #1643 2 years ago

    I started restoring a game last fall, got the cabinet done before the weather got bad here in Michigan.

    I've had the playfield stripped in the basement since last winter - the weather wasn't nice enough to sand/clear the playfield in the garage -

    Now it's October, and the weather isn't nice enough to sand/clear the playfield in the garage...

    Oh, that's the worst. It seems to happen every year with something. I have a pachinko and penny machine that need a clear coat and i ran out of time.

    #1645 2 years ago

    I am so sick of people sitting on overpriced games. It doesn't matter how rare your machine is. If it hasn't sold in 3 months or more you are overpriced. Sick of people who hold onto something over a few hundred dollars. Game has been for sale for almost a year take it as a sign.

    #1646 2 years ago

    I schedule my work travel around places to play pinball.

    Whenever I see that I just assume it's someone low key bragging about their collection.

    I have owned WWE in the past and I'd like to own Whoa Nellie in the future.

    I have not played a single game in 2 Mo's and continue to check pinside every day.

    I was catching up on this last page and it took me waaaay too long to figure out these posts were unrelated...
