    Well, Today is my 15th Birthday so I thought I'd be cool if I asked everyone, If Today is your birthday what would you want? (be reasonable)


    My Answer: The 17" 1.5ghz 512mb 80gb Powerbook. *cry*

    If our answer has to be reasonable, so does yours! :D

    I'm guessing you didn't get it....

    I don't think I've ever managed to get a spectacular gift on any of my birthdays - at least nothing stands out at the moment. So I always shoot low, lessens the disappointment...

    Maybe you can shoot for Christmas :rolleyes:

    For your birthday, how about the new iPod?
    Or a digital camera?

    1. 60 GB photo ipod
    2. 1bg ram stick for my powerbook
    3. high quality microphone and a m-audio firewire audiophile

    oh, that would be a kick**s birthday!

    I mean you can't be like I want WORLD PEACE! Or a Hovercar, but a Dual 2.5 is reasonable... just not very likely for your birthday.

    For my 15th birthday, I got... hm, let's see... 1998...

    Oh, wait, that's it. Badass leather trenchcoat. Certainly not a Powerbook. Crikey. :eek: :eek:

    For my 15th birthday, I wanted world peace too, 'cause it was 1970 and I was looking at the draft in a few years and 'Nam was still going strong. Ended the draft in my year '73.

    What I got on that birthday is anybody's guess at this point. My learner's driver's license for one I guess and probably some geeky bell bottom pants.

    Happy birthday!

    I think I'd want a piece of camera equipment, maybe Extensis Portfolio to manage my photos. I'd like world peace, but it comes at too high a price--and all that quiet and harmony! :eek:

    since i am a perpetual graduate student (never a cheap hobby) and always threatened with new and interesting things that can come up in the home improvement area, i am low on cash so my toys list is rather modest...in order of want, not need, here they are:

    1) water reistant aviator's or diver's watch...citizen...around $318-$418 usd
    2) gretsch hollowbody guitar, electromatic model...around $700
    3) fender telecaster electric guitar...around $650 with gigbag

    but more realistically:

    1) water resistant fossil watch or swiss army watch...under $100
    2) gretsch solidbody guitar, electromatic model...around $425

    and let's say i wasn't cash poor, he he, then:

    1) vintage omega watch from 1950s or before, leather band...$3000+
    2) gretsch "nashville" hollowbody guitar, hardshell case, with tv jones pickups...$3000+
    3) 12" inch powerbook with all the ram, warranty, and full compliment of third party software titles...$3000+

    the ironic thing is that the cheap swiss army watch, water resistant and quartz, is far more durable and accurate than the 1950's automatic omega watch...but with all the great swiss watches made today, not one company, including omega, can make watches as elegant and functional as they used to...today's watches either fall more into the functional category or the elegant category but cannot, or will not, fall equally into both thus creating a huge market for classic swiss watches for elite collectors

    as far as the gretsch guitars ranging from $425 to $3000 dollars, the sound is very consistent and there is very little difference in tones between them and it comes down to prestige, ie) "nashville" and "tv jones" and "brian setzer" patents on a gretsch guitar, more than anything else...as far as looks and sound, the guitars are nearly identical in their overall vibe

    It all depends, if your an adult then you have the ability to purchase your own gift. So the only restraint is the budget. There is nothing wrong with dreaming at any age.

    Happy 15th B-Day Will Curran. The most important thing is that you can spend time with family and friends. Please let us know what you end up receiving.

    If it was my birthday I'd want:
    -external FireWire hub
    -DVD burner+external enclosure
    -blank DVDs
    -to actually pass one of my Latin tests :eek:


    Then again.... a simple 'happy birthday' would be sufficient. :)

    A lot of you must have rich or generous friends or family. My birthday is not that big as it is January 28 (kinda close to Christmas). I only get cloths and maybe an XBox game (one of the cheaper $25 one.)

    Simply to be left alone and not reminded that another year has gone by.

    Regardless of how it sounds or plays, that bass smacks of Spinal Tap... bet it goes up to 11.
