This is for all you guys who:
- hide their Star Wars collection so that others, especially the LADIES, will like you and want to couple-up with you
- then, marry and become told what to do and get bored and frustrated with the responsibilities and restrictions of married life (and budget constraints)
- then become "who you really were all along" and delve into your collecting, assembling a "man-cave" of some nature
- wind up getting divorced, downsizing your collection, then trying to get everything back (or starting all over) again
Here's the link to the artcile, the text copied below:
So in conclusion, this brings me back to the point I'm very sorry to make, but YOUR divorce is very predictable to me.Originally Posted by Associated Press c/o San Diego Union-Tribune
What motivated me in posting this? I'm still told I'm hurting myself by being "too much of a freak" with wanting to display my toy collection in every room of my home (so it can be appreciated with it being spread out, and not each display overwhelming the other ones, like the AT-AT on Hoth distracting from the AT-TE on Geonosis).
Some guys think they are "too cool for school," and hide their interest so they can pretend to be someone else so they can get some 'social-life action.' Well, you still can 'get some,' in spite of your collecting interest, but don't wreck your life (the life of your false-personality) by legally and financially tying yourself into an institution that could seriously devistate you.
Yup. FAKE PEOPLE here, go right ahead and continue "lurking" here, and hiding your toys in your closet or the man-cave while you ignore this warning, wreck your life when you say "I do," and wonder why you're so unhappy.
Get real. You're reading posts on a Star Wars collecting website. I'd assume that most of you here are reading this because you're also into the hobby - or you wonder if you'd be happier if you were.
Nevertheless, as the study that I linked to above demonstrates, people still are not using birth control, and winding up with 'family responsibilities' regardless of whether they marry or co-habitate or not.
I Tycho, continue to make a stand for Men's Rights, the Freedom for Our Own Lives, Liberty, and the Pursuit of SELF-CENTERED Happiness that can be THE benchmark achievement for a happy Star Wars fan!
