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!

This POLL really needs the answer: "because it is simply practical"

I heard of it a while back. When I built my new computer, I thought "Why not?". Might as well mine when I'm asleep or something.
Oh, and I need money to blow off on TF2 keys and Mann Up tickets.

I only need like, 6 or 7 BTC for my purposes, but MtGox has prohibitively high funds transfer rates, also sending money international from my bank costs like $35.

Maybe you should try some other exchange.

Do you recommend any? I'd really just like to have it done through my debit card, but I guess with chargeback threat nobody deals in that way anymore.

That depends on your country. Hard to say without knowing if you're in the US or EU.
I'm in Portugal and find Bitcoin-24 to suit my needs.
They also accept Credit Cards trough LiqPay. Their USD market is not as busy as the EUR market but you may find it suitable to your needs in case you deposit USD, given that all you want is 6 or 7 BTC.

Seems like an incredibly cool concept, decentralized currency which isn't constantly being inflated and printed willy nilly by governments. Plus gives rise to anonymous purchases online.
