    I should have mentioned, my biggest extravagance is rock concerts. Specifically Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi. I have been known to fly to another state to see them if tickets are unobtainable in my state. :smile:

    Natural History museums.

    Or my collections, particularly the, ahh, tractor collection. Or maybe my machine shop. Or the books. It's hard to say. They're all extravagant, in their own modest ways.

    With as poor as I am, I don't have any extravagances. I don't collect anything. The nicest things I owned were purchased by other people as gifts.

    I suppose when Comcast starts charging $42/month for internet, that will be my extravagance. I travel to two scrabble clubs a week, 15 and 30 miles/away.

    Oh, and I do eat a yellow, orange, or red bell pepper every day at almost $2 apiece.

    There are a surprising number of those being manufactured. The big ones are usually for rides along a regular tour path, and the smaller ones are meant to be auxiliaries to your yacht. I don't know if any of the smaller ones have actually been sold. Insurance is an obvious bottleneck. I remember when Perry was going to donate a research submersible to the MIT Ocean Engineering department, but was turned down because even MIT didn't think it could swing the insurance. Ouch.
