Guest DUM

my first couple pair of boxers (5th grade? 6th maybe) still fit me. I wear them every once in awhile.

that's not a good thing huh.

Same here, but the elastic is all worn out. I don't even know why I've kept them for so long.

I keep remembering shit after looking at other people's posts...

Original Nintendo - 21 years

Super Nintendo - 16 years

I've got a Sega Genesis and Original Game Boy that still work, but I almost never use them anymore...so I'm not counting them. But I got 'em both new when they were first released.

Fuck discs. If it doesn't come on a cartridge, I don't need to play it.

Vintage brown cowboy-ish belt: almost everyday for four years. didn't realize this was long but apparently that's a good lifespan for a belt

Crappy microsoft mouse: five years

Dolce and Gabana masculine cologne: six years. Don't wear it very often these days, but I like the nostalgia of the smell.

I still have (and use) the original Gameboy given to me on my 6th birthday in 1988.

Tetris FTW.

I have a belt strap that's going on something like 8 years. Change the buckles every now and then. Don't wear it every day, though. Just got a belt strap from miz's guy. Hopefully it's still around in a couple of years, as I can only imagine the patina it'll develop.

my family had a 92 camary that had 225k miles on it. it drove perfectly dispite being my first car and me beating the living shit out of it and no regular oil changes. the transmission finally gave out in 99 (thats only 7 years of driving!!!) and it wasn't worth it to fix it up so we gave it to a mexican family for free and they fixed it and are still driving it.
