I was sitting here at my (very messy) desk today, thinking about money. Specifically, still groggy from sleeping, I was wondering why I always have more meat than I can think what to do with in KoL, while I can't seem to hold onto money for very long in real life. Then I realized what the problem was: in KoL, I can get pretty much anything I want by beating up a bunch of people until one of them drops what I want.
Too bad real life doesn't work that way. I could be rich.
