What are the nerdiest things you have every spent money on?

I used to be a huge fan of Yu-Gi-Oh cards back from about 7th grade until my Freshman year of high school. Over that time I probably spent around 300$ on Yu-Gi-Oh cards. I have a pretty extensive collection now, all of which is sitting in a box in my closet now.

Same.

I've also spent ~200$ on Dungeons and Dragons merch, maybe ~500$ on Guild Wars 2, and I don't even want to think about how much money I've dropped into League of Legends....

It's seriously addicting, but not because it's fun. It's the kind of thing you never quite recover from.

That's a mistranslation! Jesus was only against fig prostitution!

No Jesus actually viciously attacked an innocent tree in the following story, and clearly hates not only trees but dendrophiliacs as well.

"12 The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. 13 Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. 14 Then he said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." And his disciples heard him say it.

15 On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple courts and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves, 16 and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts. 17 And as he taught them, he said, "Is it not written: "My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations"[a]? But you have made it "a den of robbers."[b]"

18 The chief priests and the teachers of the law heard this and began looking for a way to kill him, for they feared him, because the whole crowd was amazed at his teaching.

19 When evening came, Jesus and his disciples[c] went out of the city.

20 In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots. 21 Peter remembered and said to Jesus, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!"

22 "Have faith in God," Jesus answered. 23 "Truly[d] I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, "Go, throw yourself into the sea," and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins."

lol mine works too; it runs on heat, so you just sit it on a cup of hot water.

I should note though that I too bought Yu-gi-oh cards in elementary school and also a microscope and biology textbook in third grade... so if a nerd contest is what you're looking for, you have quite an uphill battle :P

i also have a crazy amount of Yu-Gi-Oh cards, and Pokemon cards, and even Digimon Cards, and I built a gaming computer mainly purposed to handle Crysis 3
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.
