Like taking toys from a child

Today, I looked at the Technic Off-Roader that has taken up semi-permanent residence on top of the elliptical machine and felt a bit guilty. I rarely build with Technic pieces and if I do, it's just a few bricks or pins.

So with the exception of doing the alternate build on the box- a dune buggy on steroids, I'm not sure the set is going to get much use beyond some headlight demonstrations.

I've asked adult fans of LEGO if they ever feel guilty about the collections they have amassed and the answer has usually been a very quick "No." For some, that's because they have children who play with LEGO. For others, it is simply a matter of supply and demand. They can afford LEGO and the company will make more sets. I still haven't resolved my feelings on the matter.
