But dont you HAVE to express your self by buying face plates!? ESPECIALLY expensive face plates? I mean, what kind of person doesnt at least have neon-lights under his keys!? Isnt self expression important!?

God- I read about this a few weeks ago. As someone who lives in the center of conspicuous consumption for perhaps the solar system I have to say that I think anyone who buys this should be forced to work at McDonalds for a week cleaning the deep frier with their hair. <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" />

Cleaning the McDonalds fat tank... thats a fate that I would not wish on my worst enemy. I remember working there one summer in high school and being able to smell the fat as they pumped it out... oh my god, its the worst thing I have ever smelt.
