    I run a pinball arcade . . .

    But seriously, out of college I worked internationally often 60-80 hours per in construction overseas (so most of expenses were paid for and little time to spend money on anything). I sent my money home and my dad invested it for me. When I got back like 8 years later I had a pretty good chunk of change saved up. I think the sacrifice was worth it. I continued to invest and work my up through the construction industry. Once I settled down, I had to have pinball machine (and way overpaid). But for number 2 I searched craigslist for a bargain and found it. Number 3 was restoration / play field swap ($1,400 funhouse). Number 4, 5, 6, 7 . . . yeah its like a bad crack habit.
