    Attention all spendaholics :woo:

    What's the craziest thing you've spent your loan on?

    Have you parted with your dolla for holidays? DJ decks? PLASTIC SURGERY?

    (seriously, some people have...)

    Have you ran out of money less than a week/month after receiving your loan because of guilty purchases? :oops:

    Share your spending secrets :zomg:

    I think it is quite irresponsible to throw the taxpayer's money away on pointless, frivolous things. You loan is to be spend on your accommodation and basic living expenses.

    Not good enough Plagio, this is taxpayer's money and because of your selfish and excessive expenditure there are veterans dying in the cold. I hope your luxury ruler was worth it.
