Very true... quality is worth the price. It's like cheap tripods, eh?

I wish I could get proper Guinness here. I can find it on tap, which is good, but then I have to drive, AND $6.53 won't go too far in a bar. ;-)a

There was a bar walking distance from my house that had Guinness on tap. They closed a while back and just re-opened under new management. Went in there looking forward to a nice glass of Guinness. Informed they no longer had Guinness, instead they now had Pabst.

So fecking wrong.

I have not tried Kona before.

I suspect you'd end up with focussing issues, if you haven't got any already...

They have beer that cheap in Texas? Must be some of that clear beer. I would steer clear of that. And gum really has no redeeming value, so steer clear of that too.

I think you should make the reflectors and save up for some good beer. :)

I think I may get to splurge a bit and I'd like some opinions on how I should spend my money.

So, what do you think?

Should I get a few packs of gum and a six pack of beer or do you think I'd be better off saving up and trying to get a 12 pack instead?

I might also be able to get a slightly used set of lens caps and a rocket blower (no-name brand of course).

Lastly, I might get some tin foil and a few pieces of foam board to make some reflectors, but not sure if this will help my pictures or not?

Todd, I love your sense of humor. Go down to one of the casinos and put 50 cents in a nickel machine, pretend to play and get free beer when the drink girl comes along. You wouldn't be the first to use that strategy.
