Laughing here at reading this. Almost exactly how I got into the same predicament here. Some people say you smoke crack one time and you are hooked and people like us fix one scope and we are hooked, we cannot stop buying old blue boxes with a whole bunch of little knobs and switches on the front.
I taught my daughter the concept of how you become a drunkard, i.e. one drink at a time.
I once asked people why I needed a fourth scope. There was only one justifiable answer: you must have four before you can have five :(
