    I have been browsing at audiogon and ebay for Polk Speakers
    for over 5 years now, they don't come up that often once in a couple of years I guess.

    If that's the only thing holding you back you must not be a true audiophile. :D

    Some neat tricks you can do to buy speakers you want but cannot afford:

    Use your mortgage money for speakers and use the credit card checks to pay the mortgage.

    Pay your credit card bills with other credit card checks.

    Turn the heat off and use kerosene when necessary.

    Don't pay the utilites. They don't care if you get behind 3-4 months.

    Steal TP etc from work. (caught a friend at work doing this way back).

    Refinance and add speakers rather than a deck.

    Use coupons for the stupid stuff (food, clothing, etc.)

    Cut the neighbors grass when they go on vacation (even though yours is 3 feet tall)

    Sell useless items such as furniture, appliances and clothing.

    Talk neighbors into getting dogs and building high class dog houses for them. Take the dog houses off their hands and sell them for profit after their dogs mysteriously disappears some night.

    I've never stole tp, that's all I'm saying... I did actually spend my mortgage payment on my first set of SDA's with no clue how I was going to pay for that month. What can I say, the guy wanted cash and I really wanted them! (those cash withdrawal's on the CC really hurt). OUCH!

    Yeah, unfortunately I have a lot better uses for $6K and anyone who had the money to get those would already have them, or at least, a similar system.
    There is no genuine justice in any scheme of feeding and coddling the loafer whose only ponderable energies are devoted wholly to reproduction. Nine-tenths of the rights he bellows for are really privileges and he does nothing to deserve them. We not only acquired a vast population of morons, we have inculcated all morons, old or young, with the doctrine that the decent and industrious people of the country are bound to support them for all time.-Menkin

    Since it takes energy to give you signals of hunger (growling stomach, etc), and I think that when you are in desperate need of food these signals stop being produced because they waste energy, correct? So in that case, only the first week or so would be bad... ;)
