Dunlop Graphite Golf Clubs for $300

14 years old with a brother with ADHD, so we didn't get much sugar as kids. So, with my nice fat $62 paycheck, I bought a box of one of those junk cereals I'd seen on the Saturday morning cartoon commercials for years... Gotta love Frankenberry cereal.

Took me about 4 hours for the sugar rush to wear off, lol.

Yeah, I think so too, that and defender. I have both for one of my old nintendos, and break it out everynow and then.

Used to play a lot of Tron as well, but put the 2 side by side, 9 out of 10 times my quater went into Galaga. :cheers2:

Video games in the arcade, no doubt.

My first real paycheck from the Navy, I bought the biggest loudest freaking boombox I could get, and looked ridiculous carrying it around.

5th one down

Made of Awesome, 1982 style.

No way possible I could remember that. My first paycheck was in 1980. But it was probably gas and food.

paper route money....big mama sausages, video games, cokes, bags of doritos, Dungeons and Dragons stuff, Schwinn Diamondback down payment.....I had a paper route when I was 12 until I was 18....eventually the paychecks went to buying cars, liquor, and playing poker machines starting at 14 in the backrooms of convenient stores.
