    I want a large 4 bedroom home for just me and my Star Wars toys!

    Actually, I need it. I live alone in a 2-bedroom now, and I'm out of room! There's so many large battles I want to build and display!

    I need 2 rooms for Tatooine alone: Prequels and Sequels.

    The Sarlaac Pit I want to make will be huge and have to be a center-room piece so you can walk around it and see inside the sailbarge (or the kind of sailbarge I want).

    Mos Eisley is rather large too, so it's better that Mos Espa and a Pod Race Arena are in a different room.

    Plus I want to cannibalize a large-scale model railroad set and adapt my podracers to run on it! Then they can fly around the room!

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Between the Death Stars, Coruscant's Jedi Temple and the Galactic Senate, plus cases for all the 12" that go with these scenes, it's impossible to fit them in the same room as anything I described already.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    And on Naboo, I have to build a town of Theed with a war going on in it, and a reactor room below it for the Jedi Duel - not to mention have another spot in the same room for the Gungan Battle.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Try and get that in the same room as the Battle For Geonosis with 2 Arena playsets and 4 Republic Gunships, not to mention the army I'm building for the Separatists!

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    OK: I've graduated college. Check.

    I've gotten started in professional consulting with government contracts. Check.

    I just helped win an election for a potential, and very influential employer. Check.

    I should start to get better and better opportunities...

    Now in San Diego, 4 bedroom homes cost over $400,000. And then there's location - I can appreciate Star Wars, but I can also appreciate the Pacific Ocean!

    I want it all and I want it now!

    As it stands, I have to settle for a Tyderium Shuttle that will arrive late in the mail.....
    BAD Pts Need: R5-C7 lf leg (x2), , R4-P44 right leg BAD Pts Offered For Trade: PM me - I have lots of parts now including BG-J38!. New Kyle Katarn is also available.

    tycho,

    i'm gonna come off sounding like a jerk, but that's not my intention. i'm mainly just curious about your, and others like your self and their thought processes.

    as one who advocates socialism, wouldn't the governments and your money be better spent on the "needs" of the downtrodden than if it were spent on government consultants and their $400,000 houses/star wars toy museums?

    what do politicians need consultants for? i can understand them having a modest staff, but based on what i've heard about my local politicians, they love to waste vast amounts of money on studies and consultants on various trivial issues.

    again, i'm not trying to be a jerk, it just gets under my skin for someone to post things like this. anyone being paid with tax dollars should never be able to afford a half million dollar home, not even the president.

    shouldn't your concerns be for other's well being first?

    if you were employeed in the private sector, i would have no problem with you or anyone else spending vast fortunes on what ever they wanted, even star wars toy museums, but people who work for the government have seemed to forgotten the concept of public service and are in it only to get rich.

    Nah, Bill and all of the other top Dems have their mansions too.
    It's other people who are supposed to be doing all of the giving.

    that's exactly my point. if they really cared about the poor, they would be living in small houses or apartments and donating any salary over $50 thousand to the needy.

    those who claim the loudest to care for the poor, unemployeed and uninsured are the most greedy, wasteful ones around.
