ahh, I see. lets just say that I went from being very poor to comfortable in a very short time using skills that I picked up in the army and a very loose sense of morality. and, unlike a lot of people who have been in that position, I didn't like the idea of a gold bracelet or chain, so it seemed cool to keep my madmoney in a semi-visable location. same idea, perhaps a little more subtle, no more adult.
well, I think it was a cool statement...either fashionably or as a way of showing out...wish I had had the balls to do something like that when I was younger.
