    Usually, but not after Thanksgiving & Christmas dinners, or other 'gorge' meals.

    Reading: Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami
    Last read: You Just Don't Understand!: Women and Men in Conversations by Deborah Tannen (A MUST READ), A Child Named "It" by Dave Pelzer (NOT BAD), A Dance With Dragons by GRRM (4.5/5)

    Because he has fun. If you have money, and have something you like to do that requires money, why not spend money on it? Also, basing this on what he's said, he's only put about $4,000-$5,000 into the game over the past 5-7 years or somesuch. Most of the stuff he has in there has been gained without paying for it directly. For example, the $10,000 spaceship he has was won in a contest (tho I believe he invested a few hundred dollars to win that contest). And I'm guessing that, if it hasn't already, the spaceship will pay-off itself sooner or later.

    Well in my openion I haven't spent much.
    I have played since march 2008. And the first 6 months I spent nothing, each month after that i spent $50.

    6yrs * 12 months = 72 + 3 months since march this year = 75 months I have played - 6 months I didn't deposit = 69 months * $50 = $3450
    Two winters ago I withdrew $3300 to help fill the fuel tanks for heating my house.
    $3450 - $3300 = $150 dollars I have 'invested' into the game currently.

    $150 / 75 months = $2 a month it has cost me to participate in a hobby that I really enjoy.

    Considering that I do not eat out or go to the movies (neither are available where I live), I don't use tobbaco or dope, and one bottle of rum from Costco lasts me a full year, I think that even the $50 a month is pretty cheap for my entertainment budget.

    The beauty of it for me is that if I ever tire of the game, or have a real life emergency, then I can legally and safely (not necessarily quickly) get back out whatever value I currently possess.

    cool stuff, looks like you put some thought into how the finances of it work out.

    more importantly what is your dream omelette?
