Sticky 

$600 Check.

So, the US government may be sending us all a $600 check. If that check arrives, we all know we are sinking it into our phtoography, so what toy would you buy? No polictics on the rebate proposal, just pure gear acquiring fun.

Myself, I'd probably buy that Shen-Hao I've always wanted, and ban my Speed Graphic from tri-pod use.

Ok, well there's a couple of things.
A-I personally am obviously not getting taxes back.
I don't pay taxes ;)

And B- Don't make fun of me, but I have been dying to get this camera, and will get it, even if it's 20 years outdated.

Photobucket

Canon Digital Rebel XTI

*swoon* :D

I heard this is for people who made over 3,000 dollars, and paid taxes on it? I did, but I'm not an adult until feb, am I gunna get a cut of the cake hahah? Or does anyone know the the other stipulations if I had my info wrong?

Anyways, if I do get the rebate, or whenever I decide to buy it for real, I plan on getting the nikon 18-200 vr.

The xti isn't 20 years out dated, just like a day, The Digital Rebel XSI was just announced.

So you make more than $75k? Not too shabby for a young guy.

i would probably buy wireless flash things, but most likely it'd go into the constantly evolving "volkswagen fix/improve/modify " fund.

$600 would pay for my wheel's much needed sand-blast and repaint.

I'd probably put it towards some new lenses. I'm planning on doing an 18-200, 70-200 2.8 vr with 2x teleconverter, and a 50 1.8.. Should be able to get it all with the extra 600 :D
admin
Jason, I'm with you. If we get this rebate ours will go towards super fun stuff like, "husband having his wisdom teeth removed" and "speech therapy for the three year old boy child". Rock on!

On further review. I think I'll upgrade to a $500 v700 scanner. My current ancient model is really starting to suck, and at $40-$80/pop for a tango scan, I think whatever quality difference there is will be a resonable trade off in the long run. I don't think my work is marketable enough to recoup $400 in scanning fees for a 10 image exhibit.
admin
I will probably pay off a loan and blow the rest on hookers and booze.
admin
K. Praslowicz 10 years ago
I think a smarter plan woudl be to first get the booze & hookers. Use the hookers, then use the booze to make them pass out. While they are out, take the money back and leave. Then use the hooker money to also pay off the loans. This way, you can make it work twice for you.
admin
Kip, you are wise beyond belief.
admin
Yup, I'm spending mine on hookers and booze too. Except since I'm married with four kids I get a lot more than $600. I'm going to have a whole lot of hookers and booze!

Or not.

Since a large portion of my income already goes into hookers and booze, this really wouldn't be a special or interesting way to spend my money.

So I think I'll pay bills with it for a change.

Those rich fat cats who can afford contraceptives. The rest of us just have to go the "No way in hell I can get this one preggers" route.

admin
Justin, talk to Ariel! She is about 39 weeks (is that about right, Ariel?) and apparently offering up hooker services. I'll be her pimp!

Oh, and Kip, the "No way in hell can I get this one preggers" route is how some of us have four kids. Just sayin'. Not that it is all bad, because when you have four kids you get more money when it comes to these economics stimulus packages and the tax breaks are nice too. And the kids are kind of fun too. ;-)

Hahah i dont need any hookers and i cant do the booze thing soo.. i am thinking maybe a nanny;)
admin
Oh, I'd love a nanny. Hell, I'd be happy with a babysitter for two hours, once a month so I could actually have a conversation with my husband that didn't involve kids chattering at us in the back round. LOL
MOD
Randall Cottrell 10 years ago
just pay the hookers to take care of your kids for a few hours?
admin
Randy, how did you get so smart?
admin
JustinSinks 10 years ago
I think you may be able to find cheaper and better quality child care than a hooker. Unless you want you kids to know what its like to make the WRONG choices in life ;)

So, a babysitter for 5 hours would be about 150 bucks, then the rest could be for a hooker to entertain you and your husband while you talk? ;)

And whats the going rate on pregger hookers these days? The last one took half of everything I own ;)

I love that this thread has turned into such an in depth conversation about hookers. ;-)

Justin~You have no idea how hard it is to find a baby sitter for four kids aged 7 and under. I might be forced to go with a hooker at some point. Maybe she could teach me some new tricks as an added bonus?
