Poll: Help! Life and death situation (26 votes)

A shit ton of comic books (I missed out on a lot man) 38%
A skateboard (yes I know how to skate and put together one piece by piece) 23%
Just get both maan. Dunno it's possible for you but don't let dreams be dreams. 31%
LOL. Gr8 m8 m8 but I give it an 8. 8%

Between these two which one should I spend my moolah on this Christmas? I'm slightly serious here and I seriously don't know what to get.

Life or* death situation seems more accurate, no?

I'd say the cb's, unless you really like skating.

If you have OCD I guess it is. I missed out on two months worth of comics. lol

Thanks.

@staticspeedster: Me? Well I'm no finance genius (my stocks have been down a while. Lol) but, I say to consider getting the thing that fits/wins these categories.

Which thing will you use more?

Which thing can you get a better deal from (how much you can save and how practical)?

Which thing do you want more?

I'd go with the board though, cause you can always get comics online.

@staticspeedster: No, but I manage my siblings'.

Really? If you have to go to a place (7/11 for example) the board would be more useful, whereas the comic book is a one time a month read (at least for me).

I can find good deals on comics, as long as it isn't paper back.

Fair enough. Lol.

Sounds similar. XD

Here's what I'll try to do: Get a board then spend some on comics.

A board would be too much. Comics, I have specific stuff in mind and it would be slightly inconsiderate. heh

Honestly? I'd say just go with your heart :)

In the end of the day, that's likely what you're going to do. I doubt you're say "well, more people voted that I should buy a skateboard, so... I guess that's what I'll go for!" You'll probably follow whatever your heart tells you.

Not with Catnip. It's okay I've been there man. In my past life I used to be a raccoon then smoked too much Catnip. Next day I woke up with 2Pac beside me eating Cheetos.

If it was me, I'd get the comics. They'll be the source of a lot of pleasure for a long time to come (potentially), and less chance of injury (it CAN come back on you, trust me on this, on the other hand cool memories CAN be worth the pain sometimes...depends on what you think it's worth).

Also, comics can occasionally appreciate in value (maybe), old boards almost never do.

If you're gonna play the game boy, you gotta learn to play it right. You gotta know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away and know when to run. You never count your money when you're sitting at the table, they'll be time enough for countin' when the dealin's done.

There's your advice, live by it ;)
