So , what do we all play with other than appendages ? As a distraction over the years ( especially the Kearney / Stuart type years ) we've had threads soap boxing our hobbies and toys which have opened some insights and surprises into fellow members lives other than knowing them as as Avatar photo.
Might be a drone , gaming PC , bike , boat , car , home made sex toys ( Shaun Johnson for those who remember that great charecter who vanished to jail or whatever happened ) , go kart , stamp collection , ride on mower , lawn porn , whatever . Whatcha got ? Even if it's something you sold you wished you'd kept .
I'll start , haven't been able to ride it for about 2.5 years due to medical reasons , but she's an oldie and is far from the new you beaut bikes on the road these days but she'll be getting a complete overhaul when I'm better . It's a slow old cruiser and gets the job done.
love hearing what we are into.
I have just been given the approval by the department of finance to forfill a life long promise to myself to buy a pinball machine but have not decided which one as yet not sure if to buy an older refurbed one from my younger days or a brand new model. I like the old adams family one and gone fishin
Sick. Every man's dream, have you considered the digital ones so you can have every one you please ? I guess it's not the same as having the real thing and feeling the machine doing it's thing. Those two you mentioned are certainly classics , there was another one about the same era which was a high speed chase where you had to get it into the Supercharger and " shift gear " I loved that machine.
This bad boy was my favourite
on another note have you watched the movie that's just been released about the bloke who took his local council to court in the U.S back in the day to change the laws as pinball machines were illegal ? Pretty good and funny movie. Who'd have thought it was once illegal to play pinball 😂
Yes great machine in my top 5 midschool machines. Negitive on the movie what's it called I'll check it out for something to watch on next nightshift
I think it's just called , The man who saved pinball. Pretty funny and quirky type of movie . Enjoyable even if you're not into it .
Good memories the pinball machine. My brother in law had a Flash Gordon one back in the late 80's, he's an ex policeman so I didn't ask where it came from. Many hours playing that one
I bet he confiscated it he he
Very similar Anthony, I'm after an old Bally machine, similar to a pinball machine but you could win money with them, and I did regularly in my younger days.
They're the machines that were in the movie that kicked off the banning in the States. They claimed they were being run by The Mob.
Yeh, could imagine them being used for money laundering. You could win good money off them. When I first started work in the city, (Sydney), I went to a snooker room during my lunch break, played a bally machine and went back to work half an hour later with the equivalent of 3mths pay, I bought my first car with it, the good old days.
