Maybe he's doing some favors for the mafia, you know what I mean?
Or maybe he's just really wise when it comes to money.

What job can cover both the cost of living (shelter, food, taxes, etc) and a insanely huge number of games and accessories?

If you know tell me, I'll change my career right away.

Akira's only 20. Maybe he still lives at home, and doesn't have to pay for electricity, water, food, and all that crap? Maybe the money he makes can go straight towards whatever he wants to spend?

That's how it is for me. I make around $200-$250 a week, only have to pay my internet monthly and my credit card, which I'm actually about to payoff and cancel pretty soon.

Maybe his job just happens to be a very, VERY good one.

Or he has a wealthy family background.

Well if you're a college student and have a good scholarship, that helps for school expenses. Those can even pay for living on campus, but if not, you could live at home for college like I'm doing.

If you live at home, your parents have food covered. If not, just buy lots of ingredients and things you can cook with, cause that's a hell of a lot cheaper than going to McDonald's every day.

If you live at home, utility taxes won't apply. If not, usually rent for an apartment covers those or your room and board fee at college. If you live in a state without sales tax, you're good on that front. Then there's just income tax, but if you make under a certain amount a year, you can reclaim that.

There's also gas, which is kinda in the same category as a tax, since you pretty much have to pay for it to go anywhere. But if you live on campus, you can usually walk or bike to most of your destinations.

Those are all the things that you absolutely must pay for. Other than those, just save up all your extra money for gaming and neglect any other unnecessary purchases like movies, candy, clothes, etc...

So there's your personal finance lecture. Class dismissed.

This is scary having people analyze my spending habits.

That will most likely be my plan too.

And certainly a lot healthier.

I'm never going to make the apartment move as long as there is breath in my body.

That's the price of popularity, pal.

I was thinking the same thing; in just a few hours, almost two pages of this threaded exploded about that.

Oh, btw, you know that limo that keeps slowly driving back and forth in front of your house? Yeah, that's us.

Really? I don't see you anywhere in here...

Oh wait, you must be in the white one. I'm in the black one.

I'm in the pink one.

I only buy like, 1 game every 1-2 months. You buy 20 games every week.

That's it, I'm quitting school and I'm going to find a *bleep*ing job

Lulz, I just realized how hilarious it would look if you put a black Wiimote in with the Wii MotionPlus.

[img]TOGETHER IN PERFECT HARMONY[/img]

Not as hilarious as I had imagined, but it makes the black look slightly less sexy. It almost looks brown in the first pic lol.

If only the DSi could see if the Black and White Wiimotes were siblings...

Stupid face recognition thing.

Note: Tainted apologizes for going on such a random tangent.

It's because we're curious

You know, everyone's pity analysis and and limo talking (BTW, I'm dressed as the old guy with a Santa beard) is sidestepping the question. Though we have determined that it is possible to not have a very high paying job and pay for all this, it still does not answer the question:

Akira, what do you do?
