    The worst for me was the Homer Buddha that gave me a Mystery Box that gave me some fences. That hurt.

    I am slightly disappointed the Drive In Theater's longest task is 3 hours, but I still love the design and Space Mutant.

    Think about it, its realistic, no movie lasts over 3 hours, its all movie lengths, and Bored of the things extended cut is the longest one :D

    Your old avatar was one of my favorites.

    I miss the Doctor :(

    Just joining the chorus. Can't go wrong with your current choice, but it'll take some getting used to. I just got past thinking of you as Matt Smith!

    On topic, I always make stupid decisions when I have a lot of donuts. I remember thinking when I first saw the Krusty fountain "at least I don't have to worry about purchasing that one." Much later, I saw a flower arrangement in a neighbor's town (a neighbor I may or may not be quoting) and wanted to "adapt" it for my KL entrance. That stupid fountain fit perfectly. What else could I do?

    Well, at least I don't have many donuts now. That's a good thing, right?

    I too am bummed that the longest task is 3 hrs. They could've easily had a 12 hr "Planet of the Monkeys" marathon task.

    When I first started playing, I accidentally bought the purple Funzo. I didn't know at the time that I could contact EA and ask them to take the Funzo back and refund my donuts, so I kept it.

    So he's just there walking around in my town. I guess I could put him in storage, but it's a good reminder of what can happen with quick distracted tapping...

    The same exact thing happened to me! So now I have that little weirdo lurking around my Springfield.

    Pokey the guinea pig is my biggest regret. All he does is jump and squeak. It doesn't help that he's very VERY tiny! The next would be the bottle.

    Yep, this is mine as well. I only bought it because the guinea pigs that we had to catch during the mini-event looked cool and did really nice cartwheels when we caught them. The one we purchased is just crap.

    Well, I was going to say Asia de Cuba, which I got as the "free" random building in a recent donut sale. But actually, I use it almost all the time because Legs and Louie have a permanent 3-hour premium task there. i don't like the building, but it's useful.

    Mostly, I regret buying Krusty's Mansion. I was hoping it would add more than just a single 6-hour task for Krusty. Moreover, for a mansion, it's kind of dinky. They could have at least included the fountain.

    Arnie Pye because I hate the helicopter.
    Really? I'm very tempted to get Arnie, even though I generally prefer a building/character combo, just to get the helicopter. I see it in neighbour's towns and it looks fun.
    Does the helicopter have some kind of hidden drawback that only becomes apparent once you own it?
    It's easy to accidentally tap it as it makes its leisurely way across your town. It's also been known to cause crashes.

    I keep Arnie in his stonecutter robes. I just bought him to complete that collection, anyhow, and Number 67 has zero helicopter tasks.

    I have Arnie in the stonecutter lodge almost all the time but I like the helicopter. A lot. It just makes my game crash too much. So sometimes I send him to Channel Six and that when I visit from another town I see him in the helicopter (sometimes walking his dog instead, but sometimes in the copter ...)

    I regret buying a Human Test Subject, for donuts, when the Halloween event started. I've since received 4 from treat bags. :?

    I regret Arnie but despite the pitiful helicopter task he did unlock an extremely useful 2-day task for Channel 6

    I'm mostly freemium. So I spend my donuts wisely, and only buy things I really want (like Number 51, Shauna, Aztec theater).

    I did buy donuts during the Easter event and spent them on eggs, and still didn't clear all the boxes. That's my biggest regret.

    When I first started playing I though even the NPC characters were fun, but I've outgrew those sentiments. NPCs bother me. I just don't see their point. All characters should have at least 2-3 tasks. I can tolerate Stampy and Jub-Jub because at least you can get something out of them--they add value to your SF. Even if the NPCs came with modifiers or something...

    I don't regret buying any playable characters, even Chester. At least I can send him on tasks. At least he earns me money.

    Springfield Tire Fire. I really don't care much for the look of it, even in my more run-down area of town.

    When I first started I would spend my Donuts on the Homer Buddah...I don't know why.

    The latest regret was the Heck House. I just wanted to use Devil Flanders and thought the Heck House was another building (like the Lard Land). So when I purchased it I thought I was losing my mind because it was not in the inventory, nor did it give me the option to select where I wanted to put. I figured it was a bug and waited...

    2 days later I accidentally tapped on the Church and saw it was a skin...On top of it Devil Flanders' 24 hour task is inside :cry:

    I have bought quite a few premiem items, latest being the awesome Drive In, but my first donut purchase was my worst, the USS Tom Clancy, yes it looks nice wherevi have put it but it just doesn't do anything, at all.

    Squeaky Voice Teen, because I didn't know we could win him in our free weekly Mystery Box. I still like him though, and he was the first Premium item I ever bought, so I'm kind of attached. :)

    I also regret getting the Sumatran Century Flower, because I didn't realize the Jet Engine Bike gave the same Payout Increase for 10 less donuts. I don't know how I didn't notice it...maybe that was before the Jet Engine Bike was unlocked or something. Anyway, I guess I'm still okay with it because you can only have one so it's unique.
