Is 13 microphones enough? (and other important thoughts)

See, this is why I didn't want credit. I keep thinking of more pieces of sound equipment I need. Well, maybe not need, exactly, but it would make life much easier at gigs. And what was the sense of having a 14 channel digital recorder if I didn't buy the extra cables and connectors to use it? And then I realized I didn't have enough microphone stands, so... And that one drummer...he has that odd snare rim, and my drum mic clips wouldn't fit it, so... And it would be so much easier to keep track of stuff if I bought at least one more equipment rack. And what if I have cables start shorting out during a show? (buys a dozen extra mic cables) Whomever approved me for credit needs shot.

@topffer One for the snare, one for the kick drum, one for each of the toms, and two condensers overhead to get the cymbals...then three vocal mics...and then if the guitar (x2) and bass amps don't have direct outputs, I'll have to mic them... and I need a talkback mic for me..so 13 doesn't leave me anything if one goes bad...
