1. Spending a good chunk of change on the purchase of a premium product or products when something lesser would serve just as well.
2. Purchasing a few similar premium products, such as 3 or 4 mics or SSD's, in order to check them out, to satisfy a curiosity about the minor differences.
3. Any so-called extravagant purchase which brings pleasure to the mind and pain to the wallet.
4. Anything done to the max!
Bob: Whoa! Is that the new computer? You built that?? That thing's a beast!!
Joe: Ya dude, I really went the Full Fo-Shay on this one. I bought an i7-2600K CPU, 32GB of CAS 7 RAM, an EVGA GeForce GTX 580 graphics card, two OCZ-VERTEX3 MI SSDs so I can run 'em in RAID 0, of course, and a fanless Corsair 80 PLUS Platinum PSU. I stuck all that on a GIGABYTE G1.SNIPER2 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 mobo, then stuck that in a LIAN LI PC-X2000F Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower case.
Bob: Ha! I see you spared no expense. Hey, what's that over there? Is that another computer??
Joe: Oh, that's just the AMD equivalent of this one. I'm not really sure what I'll use if for, if anything. I only built it so I could A/B the current top-of-the-line AMD against top-of-the-line Intel.
Bob: Man, I so love hanging with you. Only problem is, now I’ll have to figure out how to explain to my wife all the new parts you've inspired me to buy. She's gonna flip.
Joe: Buy her an iPad at the same time and she won't even notice.
