What materialistic possession do you regret getting rid of? for me personally something i needed today I wish I didn't leave behind my Everlast punching bag, was like therapy to me letting out all pent up negative emotion. 

My Maserati BiTurbo and my Lancia 037.

One was for a good reason, the other because I was dumb.

One can easily be replaced, the other...not so much.

 

Oh well, live and learn

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

I’m sure your wallet is very happy you got rid of them. 

Regardless, my god am I jealous though.

I made good money (well, still do but that's neither here nor there) and spent it all on myself.

Alfas, Lancias, Abarths, Maseratis, Ferraris, the occasional TVR. I've had it all.

It's just stuff. But the BiTurbo I miss the most. Saved my life on more than one occasion.

Honestly, how bad was the maintenance on the BiTurbo?  I worked at a Ferrari dealership and heard all the horror stories about the 90’s-early 00’s Maseratis and Ferraris. 
 

Side note, a friend of mine has a 355 With the license plate “NVRFIXD” 😂😂

Bad. The kind of bad where you have to decide if you want it to run, or pay your rent that month...

It was the only car my mechanics tried to talk me out of owning. 

I probably should have listened to them, but the sharp angles and twin turbo sound...too hard to resist.

Plus that lovely race-inspired "reverse" gearbox.

I met a special someone driving that BiTurbo. Let me tell you, fooling around while driving at high speed, when the rear end lets go due to the turbos kicking in....a very exciting time (of a different sort) was had.

I regret getting married.

 

I ended up getting divorced, then having to go through counselling for PTSD. 😧 

 

That wasn't even the end of it, since my ex is now deceased. Died at the age of 27, 4 years after the divorce.

Have you tried unplugging it and plugging it back in? Yes? Then have you tried downloading more RAM?

....you consider your ex-marriage or your ex-wife a "materialistic possession", as per OP's question?

Hand, n. A singular instrument worn at the end of the human arm and commonly thrust into somebody’s pocket.

81 Delorean

Near me, there is a factory prototype twin turbo'd Delorean. One of the most beautiful cars ever designed, shame about the compromises to get it built.

What materialistic possession do you regret getting rid of?

both of my strix 1070, breaking my xx70 collection, though i might buy one back when price falls :P

sold em for $200 each around april, they're prob gonna be like $100 soon

Things I need help with:

Spoiler

none atm

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

When the lawyer I found asked me how many kids, and I said 'none', and he asked 'how much property', and I said 'none', he dropped his fee from $1300 to $800.

 

I knew I wasn't getting my PC back, I knew I wasn't getting my other stuff back, I knew I wasn't getting any money back, and I darn well knew I wasn't getting my cat, so I just gave up on it all, though it still hurt. 😧
