man, if i had $5000 to waste on a child's bike, i think i would have better hobbies, like hookers, drugs, cars, lots of beer, etc. i guess money CAN buy happiness!

The key is that folks whose hobbies are hookers, drugs, cars and beer don't HAVE $5000 to waste. They're out robbing the 7-Eleven for their next score, and starring on Cops. Must be alot of fun in your trailer park.
