I love Wombat but.... He is such a Jew.
His daughter talked about her presents and seemed to like them a lot and he had to comment and let everyone know that she only talked about the cheapest presents. He also had to drop hints about wanting the Neo Geo thing(which actually looks like it's going to suck, read up on it before buying it) and even gave a back up present idea with the cheap Midway game collection. I just kept hearing, money money money, give me give me give me. God forbid someone mention free t-shirt, of course he wants it and would most certainly wear it. We need a contest, send Wombat the dumbest free t-shirt and then see if he wears it.
Wombat is awesome but dude, calm down and say no to a free t-shirt once just to see how good it feels to be better than something free.
Oh and, did Wombat ever re-pay Shipwreck for the stuff they bought on BF? I remember Ship got Wombat a few things that totaled a little more, even if it's a couple bucks I bet there was never any settling of that debt.
Did I listen to the same podcast?
I wouldn't be surprised if Wombat exhibited "being cheap" but it didn't seem like he did that really at all on this podcast. And even then, behavior like that (to at least some extent) shouldn't be surprising from anyone (myself included) who visits a site dedicated to "saving money" (aka embracing their frugality).
I don't see how religion would necessarily play into any of this but maybe I'm confused and this is a site like JDate.
