In all seriousness I would be happy to donate some money to you to help with replacements.  If you have a paypal account that would be easy to do. 

 

You can contact me at dbdraft99@gmail.com

No, I will try to find them. They haven't been vaporized or anything, and I'm pretty sure it's a family member, which makes it easier to figure out where they are. I'd feel pretty foolish if I accepted free minis and I found the bag the next day.

Might be a quick way to find them, though. I usually don't find what I've lost until I replace it.

Beyond all the usual advice of "When was the last time you saw them? Have you checked down the back of the sofa?" etc., all I can say is good luck in finding them.

 

If it is a family member though, that should make a short list to set the interrogation droid on at least ;)

I can't afford insurance on anything at the moment. My work barely pays me $300-400 a month and I've been job-hunting for two years.

Ouch. Well, I know a place that's always hiring, but I'm not sure how you'd look in camo.

$3-400 per month?!,!! Those are not wages, they are an insult. If you live anywhere near Denver there are better jobs here. If you don't it might be worth moving.
This is my signature. My signature, is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
My signature, without me, is useless. Without my signature, Other posters will not know how many X-wings I own. I must fly my plastic toys true. I must roll better reds and greens than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will...
My signature and I know that what counts in casual flying is not the rounds we fire, the noise of my sound board app, nor the smack we talk. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit...or better yet, crit.

PM me if you want some advice, or some perspective.

 

Believe it or not, the army is full of our type of people. I once knocked out a ceiling tile and a stack of old 5.25" floppy disks clattered to the floor. It was a copy of Dungeons and Dragons, undoubtedly straight out of the early '90s.

That depends on how many hours he works, and what he's qualified for. Neither of which we know much about. Whatever he does, it shouldn't be full time work. If it is then GTFO.

Or he may still be in school in one form or another, which depending on his schedule, would make a lot of sense.

Yea, I'd pitch in to help recover if they're truly lost. That seriously blows if they're indeed missing. Worse if they were stolen. Wingers unite!!!

He's been looking for two years and that is a monthly total. You can get that much donating plasma, I think. At any rate at 10 hours a week and 4 weeks in a month that is still only $10 per hour take home.

It's not a full time job. I am a contract worker taking pics of GE's jet engines, specifically the T-700/CT-7, CFM56, and CF34 lines. There is a facility where they're repaired and refurbished near where I live, and I am called on certain days to photograph them as they come in, go out, and when they're torn down.

 

I must thank the guys offering to replace my minis, though. You guys are so cool, and it makes me feel better to hear that. :)

The Phantom hasn't been released yet, so no.
