Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
better than the budists we got here,
they'll set fire to a mountain of paper and walk away - leaving the neighbors to enjoy the clouds of smoke blowing into their homes. (the burners were smart enough to close their own windows - and no they never bother to warn even their closest neighbors.)
- it's supposed to be honoring their relatives - enriching them by burning "hell money" - made from the shittiest cheapest quality recycled (laced with god knows what) paper.
here they've made smoking a tiny cigarette illegal almost everywhere even outside on some streets, but burning a heap of stinking recycled paper next to schools (yes pre-school/child care centers too), shops, eating houses (many open air), bus stops, AND EVEN THOSE NON SMOKING STREETS... all good.
Really? I love the smell of BBQ and I dislike BBQing (because a kitchen is so much easier and I don't like it outside) and I'm a veggie
The downside, of course, is that my neighbors go outside and I can hear them when I have my door open.
All in all I'm done with summer and ready for autumn
When we got married I bring a desktop with me, noways we have a desktop (for me), 2 laptops (one for the wife for personal and the other to the kids to running the local library mostly), an all in one (to the wife's work), a tablet (to play games in bed for the kids) and 2 fairly new smartphones (me and wife, but wife's is constantly abused by kids)...
(and I do not count all the electronics I gathered - a shoebox)

Same: 1 Desktop (an Amstrad 1640) when Herself moved in.
2 Desktops (though hers is old because she hasn't used it for years)
2 phones (plus a small bucket full of "used" ones)
Her tablet (10" Samsung)
My Nexus 7
My Fire HD (heap of pooh)
Android head unit in car
Amazon Fire TV (Android. Ish.)
No kids, or there would be loads more I suspect.
And I give the Cat a new tablet every month ...

Everytime I buy a new desktop, the old one goes to the attic. That way when something blows up, I have a spare PC, or I can raid it for spare parts. Have been doing so for quite some time.
Good amount of IDE-cables in reserve. And network cables, phone cables, hubs, dead routers, a TV adapter for the 16-bits Nintendo. Books on Windows NT4. Can't remember the last time I actually needed an IDE-cable
