So what did everyone get for Christmas? A million bucks? Coal?

Pretty much nothing.   :(  I got a Sony DSC-P73 digital camera, but I wound up having to spend 130 bucks to get an AC Adapter and a memory stick that can hold more than one picture.  I then got some Seinfeld DVDs, a couple t-shirts, a pair of gloves, and a wool hat.  That was it.

I got a couple shirts, some cologne, and an AK-47. I'm fairly happy with the latter! Just need to get some ammo.

M16's are okay I suppose, but they jam easily! I found a legal way for me to own a rocket launcher (and use) in the state of Arizona! I love this lawless state!

I got a nice executice leather revolving chair for my PC, which is a great improvement over its predeccessor, an almost brokan plastic deck chair :P

A new hard drive, money, just general good stuff really :)

Talking of heavy weapons, I have been looking into grenade launchers myself recently, and thinking of buying and retrofitting a CO2 powered repeating rifle with an improvised M203 style undermounted grenade launcher 8)

As much as I love improvised anything (experimentation IS fun), I would like to have a real M203. I can legally do it too, with enough money. There's the trick though. With half that money, I could just build my own. I think we toyed with the idea of electromagnetics, but that would be too much weight to launch a grenade. Better off using gas operated.

I just got a HORRIBLE gift from the Tax Collector of my town.   >:(  A $300 property tax bill on my car.  They've had an entire f&#^$*@ year to send me this bill, but no.  The douche-bags wait until the final week of the year, just after Christmas when I have ZERO dollars with which to pay the bill for.  Even worse, because of the timing I won't be able to claim it on my tax return for next year since I don't have the money to pay it off until next week.  Merry f&#^$*@ Christmas.   >:(

You get property tax on your car? Wow. You should move out west, and the weather is nicer! What part of PA are you from anyway? I was visiting Philly and Hatborough for a little bit 2 years ago, really pretty out there!

I'm not from PA.  I only went to school there in West Chester which is in the Southeastern corner of the state.  I currently reside in Southeastern, CT.
