Why do you have to use obscene language?

Because the card is obscenely powerful?

Everything I buy is on a want factor. No I didn’t really need a new tablet, but I wanted one anyways. No I don’t really need a smartwatch, but I bought one. No, there was nothing wrong with my $1200 2011 model year Sony ES A/V receiver, but I bought the new 2012 model that replaced it. I can use the excuse I needed a 5th HDMI input and my previous receiver only had 4, but I’m addicted to this stuff and have no problem admitting it. Hell, in December of 2011 I spent $7,000 on Christmas presents for myself in for of electronic toys. For the past few years I’ve kept a list of ‘Things I Want’. And cross them off as I buy them. Most items that have been added in the past few months have been things to replace items I previously purchased and already crossed off. Aside from a few movies on Blu Ray (The Raven, Promethious and The Dark Knight Rises) the only items on my list are the Jawbone Big Jambox Bluetooth speaker, which I will probably be ordering in the next week, and laser jammers for my car. And then that’s it! Now of course I’d really love to have a fully loaded 2013 Lincoln Navigator L for $70,000 or that Sony 84” 4K TV for $25,000, but I keep my ‘Things I Want’ list to more realistic items.

Personal computers are a little bit different. I buy the latest and greatest at the time, use the thing for four years and then configure and buy a new one. My 1 year old HP laptop is still looking pretty nice with a 1080p 3D display, 2.3 GHz quad core processor and 16 GB of RAM. I can still get 3 more years out of it. Hopefully by then real laptops will still be around and I’ll have more options than these stupid puny ‘ultrabooks’ things with their dinky displays.

For the future of our nation, we must unite and vote out the terrorist known as Hussein Obama. Come November 6 2012 we must remove the socialist pig out of office and get our country back on the RIGHT track.
