    If reputation pts. were Green Stamps and each point equaled one cent, what would you buy with your rep's. First, I would check out the BOC Sponsors and see what they had that I didn't or maybe call Gander Mtn. and see if they would do some trading.

    I have a bunch of Abu's (6500) and Ugly Sticks, so I might move up to some custom rods and some Abu Garcia 7,000.

    Can you imagine how many tall ones someone could buy with 1,837,482 points! I bet we would not hear from him for quite awhile and if we did it would go like this: *&(%^$#+_,jlssjwoid?:smile2::wink::cool2::roll_eyes::beat_plaster::go::go::go:

    the first thing i would buy would be a buttox implant. that way the next time my mouth write's a check, my butt could back it up.

    next i would get a trip with a guide who actually knows what they are doing. heck i imagine you are as likely a candidate as anyone mac.

    finally, i would buy an old polaroid to take humiliating pics. of "you know who with the rep. points" while he is passed out drunk. maybe even set up that grocery cart scene from the movie animal house.

    When driving an oil field logging truck, would never buy fuel at a station that didn't offer Green stamps. We always bought groceries on double stamp day. :roll_eyes:

    I remember GS. Licked a many of them . I sure wish I had known about Tabasco sauce back then. That stuff makes anything taste better. I got smart and started using a wet sponge. LOL . I also remember the big gS tradeing stores in the city. All the cool stuff. LOL
    If I could trade RP for cash. I would buy gold, store it for as many years as I could, resale for I hope a much bigger profit. Then get more GS. LOL
    I know some folks who bought gold many years back. They just sold a bunch of it. Made some good money.

    Come to think of it. I bet I got a few old books of GS stored some where in all the family stuff I have stored for many years. its just finding the right box thats a chore and then hope, the rats didn't shred them up

    I'd go on eBay and buy all the ones that are listed on there before they realized they where worth something!

    That's hysterical. The first thing some of you said was "you know you're old when....." that's the first thing I thought of when I read that.

    There was an S&H Greenstamp store here in our local town. Every summer, my granny would let all of us book up all those freakin' stamps and we'd go to the store and buy stuff for us grandkids. We would always end up doing the same thing each summer, we would pool all the stamps and buy a swimming pool for the front yard. Of course we'd end up busting it within the first week, but it was always fun. Since I was the youngest, after a few years I was the only one interested in the greenstamps each year, so I would get to spend them all. By that time, I was eat up with fishing, so I'd buy an inflatable raft and a couple of new poles at th greenstamp store. It was like Christmas.

    I guess to answer the question, I'd use the "what if" money to pay off debt, and to take some classes at the local technology center.

    If they were S&H Greenstamps, I would most likely give them away just like I did when I got the stamps, LOL!!! They never had anything i wanted in those so-called stamp stores anyway, LMAO!!!!
