Do I need a kitchen scale?

I've never felt that I've needed one but so many people are big proponents of using them. I live in the U.S. where cookbooks and recipes use cups and teaspoons and such it just doesn't seem necessary. I don't do much baking. I don't diet. I don't sell illegal substances (hey, these are the uses I can come up with for one). Do you use one in your home kitchen?
