Abunchofnumbers, better known as abackofpanthers, pantherback, or backpanther, is a Something Awful goon who serves as a walking, talking showcase of what happens when you act without thinking. His life is a veritable gallery of bad decisions.

The design is a poor copy of a fundraiser t-shirt from the Shambala Big Cat preserve in Acton, CA.
He asked the Something Awful automotive subforum for advice on a bike, and received numerous recommendations that he start with a low-powered, newbie-orieted model. He ignored everyone and bought a bike way too advanced for him, then proceeded to crash three times. After each crash, they advised him on a better bike for someone of his experience level, but pantherback did the exact opposite and got a larger bike each time.

The insurance settlement was for more than $900,000 (USD). Eager to turn his life around, abunchofnumbers posted a thread in the business and finance subforum asking for advice on investments. He received a lot of good advice about mutual funds and other good ways to make money off a significant lump sum, he ignored all of it in favor of buying a shitload of San Diego real estate. That's right: he invested almost a million dollars in California real estate in late 2008.
And he bought a Lamborghini.
A manual-transmission Lamborghini.
