What’s your favorite dumb but fun expense?

If you tell me yours, I’ll tell you mine :) Three years ago I was entering my senior year of college and was in need of a car to begin my adult life. I ended up getting a brand spankin’ new Scion tC. I was set on buying a used car, but with some funding from the parental units, the Scion tC was my destiny. It was love at first drive. Knowing what I do now about the depreciation of new vehicles, I probably wouldn’t have purchased brand new and would have stuck to a gently used car instead, but at the time I didn’t know any better.

By now you might be thinkin’ that the new ride is my “dumb but fun” expense…you’re wrong. As stupid as it was to buy a new car, the first thing I did when I drove it off the lot was cruise on over to the local Best Buy and got two 10″ Infinity subwoofers installed in the back. It set me back a cool 500 bucks (paid in cash) and made my car go boom boom boom. I thought I was sooooo tight because my speakers hit sooooo low.

Fast forward to today, I rarely use the things ’cause they are so dang overwhelming. Although, I do still love my occasional thump session, I wish I went with one 10″ sub instead, or possibly even no subs at all. I could use that extra cash flow for my student loan debt. Thinking about my dumb and fun speakers got me wondering what you PFers have dropped some dollars on that you only kind of regret….like a guilty pleasure if you will.

I posted a short video below of my subs doing their business to my PF Rap for those interested….
