Anyway, the purpose wasn't to expose my lack of consistency. In the aforementioned wife's blog, she has an astoundingly hilarious article titled How to Manipulate a Gamer, specifically regarding the financial battle that occurs everytime he wants to buy a new game.

- Guilt trip him.
- Decide what you want in return.
- Negotiate the deal.
- Both parties make their purchases.
*Oops, I haven't really said my name before! Just call me "A."
