Question: What's the *real* reason you ever got into Bitcoins?
I can use this to anonymously mailorder drugs? Gimme sum!
My bitcoins make me feel so well off while wasting my welfare checks on mtgox.
You felt the need for a future movie line similar to "Hand over your wallet.dat! And be quick about it!"
Envisioning people killing each other over Satoshis 20 years from now you've never felt so ridiculously rich with 1.0 of ANYTHING in your life
I totally forgot about that mining tool running in the background until I found out that the 10k BTC it had accumulated were now worth a couple grand USD.
I still don't know what bitcoins are and how the hell they work!

Meh, not so many Sad There is still a long road ahead. After earning some BTC I went in search for something to buy, you know..anything just to see the thing actually working. Found nothing worth buying unfortunately, the market is still evolving I suppose?
Oh, the reason...free great video cards (that I can only dream about before) great hardware, cool weird looking rigs humming away while warming the house and making some money along the way...how can you resist that?

I want to make money! I'm a freshman in high school, and I want to get started early. I'm extremely tech-savvy - my friend and I are working on building a huge rig in his open garage with VNC to manage the computers.

a combination of crypto, decentralization, (near) anonymity, and to help establish an decent, alternative currency.

This.  Not sure why all the options center around getting rich or getting a shot of adrenaline.

I had some friends tell me about Bitcoins in 2009, and at that point, I told them they were all stupid. Well, they finally convinced me to buy in at a few cents each, and I realized I was a supporter of BTC after a month when they jumped up to $17. Although I know that was a bubble, I can foresee this happening again due to natural causes in the future.

Well... I was bored. I dont pay for the electricity, and it was getting pretty cold in here.

bitcoin mining seemed to allieviate those issues.

I don't like being robbed, i.e. (attempting to) store my accumulated wealth in fiat.

The past half month you've been being robbed by storing your wealth in assets (other than bitcoin... it's held up while everything else is falling).  In my opinion, we'll see much more of the same before it's all over.  The dollar hasn't had this long of a winning streak since 1985, but that's a topic for another thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=68655.0.

This, and I'm just a sucker for new technological toys. Playing with FPGAs is fun.
