What a Round of PA Really Costs For You

Was just thinking about what 1 round of PA costs in reality...and its quite scary!

for me:-

Sign on fee - £5

WAP access on my phone (7week round, £5 a month) = £10

Taxi to work every morning (5 days a week = £3.50 a day = £17.50 x 7 = £122.50

Petty money to Jen for lifts home from work = £5 a week x 7 = £35

All of the above are the fundamentals for a round of PA for me. they total £172.50 for a 7 week round of PA. Mot even gonna bother adding up all the takeaways ordered and chain smoked ciggies when ya too busy dealing with incs and stuff to cook proper food! Edit - and OMG the Red BUll needed to get through a round. costs for that over 7 weeks must be astronomical!

I pay all that knowing theres some little rat living in his mums basement who doesn't need to work who will come for my roids each night. FU. Next round im going a free account, structure kileers and pods only. If any1 comes for my roids im gonna use that money to pay one of the lads to call round your house and break your kneecaps

Re: What a Round of PA Really Costs For You

Round ticket - £5

Lots of phone calls and SMS to weird countries. Like Holland - ~£30

Getting Marinho's and CleaningMuppet's phone numbers - priceless.


EDIT: I thought this was going to be a thread about ruining your life by destroying sleeping patterns & getting in the way of going out etc.

Re: What a Round of PA Really Costs For You

Round cost - £5
VNC - Free.
Inet access - Mummy covers the cost.

£5 / 7 * 52 = £37 a year.

Not bad, not bad.

I would use http://www.vidarholen.net/contents/virca/shots.html and use irc.netgamers.org:6667 as the server down side is that it doesnt have a auto perform ie having to confirm log in etc.

Re: What a Round of PA Really Costs For You

The bulk of my roundly costs must come from getting drunk all the time to try and get over the fact I play planetarion Or from making stupid bets with wishmaster and company.

Re: What a Round of PA Really Costs For You

I'd say PA saved me a lot of money. Think about all the girls I would accidentally have made pregnant during the length of a round, but I instead sat home and avoided it?
