He went to Aussie Arcade when he left here.

He was only there for a few posts and wandered off.

JJP POTC would be the last game standing in my collection but the stupid money they're bringing is tempting me..

What have LE's been selling for?

You can always make more money but JJP will never make more Pirates.

I believe Wilma Flintstone would be considered the “hotter one” if she let her hair down.

#1906 43 days ago

How can a ranga look hotter than brunette?

I always thought she had a nice ass.

The last time I was in a confessional booth.. and only time, I was getting head from a cute blonde.

#1911 38 days ago

^^^^^^^ Sounds like a sin. Thought we could all use a cleansing.

Im trying to I imagine if you said something like that about a synagogue or mosque.
Would you still want a pat on the back?
Disgusting...
It’s truly a fallen world right now

I can’t stand IPAs

#1916 38 days ago

I have a policy that pin money is separate from real money, unless it's an emergency. I sold 2 A list pins recently and with the money so far I've bought an arcade game, a smoker, and put some money toward a Disney Vacation. It will be difficult to reinvest this money into pinball now that it has made it's way into the public (wife knows) pool of money.

I haven't gotten around to one of those yet, but I still have some years left... Give me time.

#1919 37 days ago

^^^^^^

I confess that I've gotten pretty good at picking outright bullshit when i see it typed or hear it spoken over the years. While i'm on a run I'll confess that my tolerance for said bullshitter is much less than it was only a few years ago.

Are you trying to impress somebody with this?

Forgive me father for I have sinned!Twice!
First I drilled a hole through a playfield and second I tampered with a creature's ass hole!!!

And you cheated at pinball.

#1923 34 days ago
Quoted from punkin:

And you cheated at pinball.

Correction, Game is supposed to have centre post.
The hole was there already for the same post with a wood thread. I have 10 of those exact same posts but all with metal threads. After a couple of dozen games decided that I could not wait to order and wait but instead decided to drill through the playfield and use one on hand. Definitely will be stronger going all the way through and being secured to the back of the playfield.
I have done a lot of naughty things in this lifetime but cheating is not one of them, especially not at pinball!!!!!!!!

We had a pin when I was thirteen. My brother and I ran fish line from the pendulum tilt out through the coin door, and around to the back. Little sister never knew why she kept tilting.

1 week later

I confess I'm reading Pinside at work.

#1926 17 days ago

I held a game for a fellow pinsider because they responded first, and lost a local buyer with cash in hand. Lesson learned again and for the last time. Do not hold a game for a stranger unless they put down a deposit of some sort. Sorry, just venting abit

#1927 17 days ago

I had a chance to buy a HUO TZ for $1000 bucks and passed on it. I have had more than 20 chances to buy a routed one over the years at or near the same price and passed every time. Now for the confession- I am glad I did. I enjoy an occasional game of TZ but not enough to put it in my collection, and I never flip pins for profit... why make it harder for someone to own a machine by inflating the price. If I see a good deal, and its a title I am not interested in, I pass. Hopefully the person buying their first pin gets in on it.

"They wanted me to build them a bomb, so I took their plutonium and, in turn, gave them a shoddy bomb casing full of used pinball machine parts."

1985 me - Ha! Used pinball machine parts! That's hillarious.

Now me - Pinball parts...... I wonder if there's anything I need in there.

Doc would definitely have had a pinball.

Better than binging on face plant or fail videos for sure...

I have my Centaur currently stored on its back. Yesterday I pulled the coin door open by its key to check on something on the back of it. The key wasn't in the locked position, door fell closed onto my pinkie. Hurt like a son of a bitch, and now I have a nice purple nail.

Then later at Stew Leonard's I accidentally poured super-hot lobster bisque all over the same hand. Not a good left hand day.

I have no stocks and I will never mess with all that. I do have a uncle that bought tons of Home Depot stock right when it came out, and I am happy for him.

I am glad when the stock market does well, because it seems everything is going pretty well.

I am so tired of political ads on TV. Whatever happened to the good old days with funny Bud and Bud Light commercials?

The Bud knight stuff is not that funny.

I just wish we could all get along all the time, and make each other smile and laugh.

I am no better than anyone else, sometimes I roll my eyes at what someone says, and I know they roll their eyes when I speak also.

I get tired of seeing news stories about car jackings and phone scams, but at the same time the stories are a good thing to alert us.

If some people would actually try to do good as much as they try to harm, the world could be a much better place.

At least we all have one awesome thing, karma. Karma can bite you in the ass if you need to be calmed down, or it can help you big time when you are trying to be awesome.

And so funny how social media gets idiots busted anymore. Idiots robbing banks or whatever then posts whatever pics with them smiling with the cash.

I really like that movie Idiocrasy, and the older I get that is the way the world seems.

My wife doesn't know how expensive my pinball restoration really costs

#1936 6 hours ago

Hey guys, the confessional worked! It took a few months, but after a few pin sales and pin loans, I moved into a much cheaper 10x10 unit today - $61 a month. It’ll save me about $1000 this year alone. I still don’t like putting down $$ to store pins, but at least it’s a step in the right direction.

Quoted from swampfire:

On the storage unit thing...yeah, we’ve spent at least $5k on our 10x20. I’ve got about 10 pins there now, mostly old Ballys that I’ve restored (I cycle them in and out of the basement). I also want to open a location when I turn 60 and “retire”. But I’ll do the math: $150/month, about 50 months to retirement...that’s $7500. Not too smart. I need to give this some serious thought.

Damn, I really need to clean out my 30x30 2 story storage building in my back yard and start renting it out!

As far as saving money, I used to love this country buffet a few years ago when it was 6 bucks. When they went to 8 bucks is when I said I will no longer eat out so I can have more pin money. That has worked really well!

In the last few years I have also shaved my cable, and cell phone, and it is like free money!

And it is nice, I know I could shave even more and just retire now if I wanted.

When you want to save money, there are so many ways to it is unreal.

(save enough and that new pin feels like it was free).

I check the coin returns when I play games on location.

What a genius plot to get other people to put games into your hands.
