@Senna I just realized/remembered that another cost of climbing is that some of my button-down shirts made for delicate arms no longer fit my forearms. Worth it though.
Ahh climbing. So great, so much money. I also climb mostly in the gym, but midwest cost of living is cheaper I guess - membership to a company that has 2 gyms in the Twin Cities is $389 for the year if bought on sale. I haven't yet had any injuries - knock on wood. I've started climbing outdoors some, but only with friends who have the gear for outdoor climbing. That's an investment I'm not quite yet wiling to make.
Too much excitement/anxiety for me. That and I still haven’t been able to shake the “gambling is the devil” pounded into my brain during childhood. But I'm very happy for those who enjoy it and win. :)

Usually I go with whatever tap beer I'm in the mood for. However, this strategy works because I usually go to bars that have craft beer on tap. Otherwise usually go for a whiskey ginger or gin and tonic.
Firstly, this is great. Secondly, I really want a Shel Silverstein style illustration to accompany it.
I just want an animorph of a lazy college student turning into old economy Steve.
I've seen it and would be excited about discussing it!
I cannot imagine any restaurant that would be in favor of this system. At all. Between the anger of restaurant owners and customers, I can't imagine this surviving.
@Beans The WSJ real estate section is similarly ridiculous, but at least it tells it like it is and calls itself "Mansions."
