    In % of money spend on mods per year compared to income per year.

    I know it's probably a lot for some people on here. I limit myself to 1 part per year , so I'm about 15-20%.

    Do medical costs from an aneurysm caused by a POS car count?
    You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.
