I was gifted it as a joke actually, absolutely did not know what to do with it, where to get and where to spend. Afterwards decided to look deeper into it, bought cool video card and so on. Now happy and like this!

Keep going,it all adds up!!

When I started mining 18 months ago, people told me that I've missed the boat. only mined 1.9 Bitcoin / day Surveys gave like 2.5 Bitcent.

In hind sight I feel very lucky now, and you might too, even if you have the feeling now that you are too late.

Bought 'em on VirtEx. Back then, I only spent coins on the road :0

No longer buying/selling Casascius coins (okay, except for this one: 1Ag1g59y). Beware scammers.

First from a faucet, then gradually increasing transactions with coinucopia, virvox, therock, coinbase, CBX, and one or two others. Tried small amounts ($10-$20) with each, chose the smoothest operations. Then tried those chosen with larger amounts ($100-$500) and chose smoothest of those. Have narrowed it down to CBX or mtGox (USD deposits via Dwolla).
