Reflection of society. Look at how much of the whole system is tethered to debt and people living month to month.

Average American could not afford an PF with their accessible savings.

Yeah Iím still not impressed. It seems like the general consensus is that the portrait is ok not as bad as the pictures are. Not good enough for me to splurge over $650 for it.

Portrait looked bad in the review, and people were slamming it in the comment section, i was surprised to hear MCE himself say he even thought the portrait was elongated and looked alien.

SS should be ashamed of themselves for replacing a phenomenal portrait with that wreck. The whole time i was watching i just kept thinking about how great the original would've looked.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

Plus I've definitely noticed people having $25K or more worth of statues on cheap IKEA shelves. Priorities.

Bestas look nice although I know they're cheap lol. I mean if something looks good and does the job I think why not? I would like to upgrade(or in addition) to some custom shelves eventually because most of the 1/4 pieces nowadays are too big for Bestas with doors.

That image is gold

I'm putting some metal shelves together right now. It's costing a bit, but for every penny/cent i spend, i'm forever thinking - i could have put this towards another statue

I don't have a problem with the looks, I just worry about the thin shelves collapsing. I think the white Ikea shelves look pretty clean and helps show off the colors of the statues well.

Yeah that pic is funny lol. I know of someone on the opposite spectrum, he's an old pig farmer probably a millionaire that I haven't seen in a long time if he's still around. Years ago he was wearing an old beat and torn tie dye shirt, he said he saw it on the side of the road and threw it in the Maytag lol.
