I forgot to say : SRS... I forgot what you wanted to say too.

But I forgot.

A... I just sold a brand new tap and die set I bought on sale at 50% regular price for 60% regular price. My return was 10% over 2 months so my equivalent annual ROR is over 60%. I am keeping my eyes peeled on big ticket item sales. I figure, if I can get a ROR of 10% in 6 months on something with a 3 to 5 year warranty, it would be better than squandering my retirement coin by reinvesting it at the Bank of Nova Scrotum. Those bastards got me by the nuts at 2.3% nominal on a 5 year GIC. If I don't do something, Anheuser-Busch sales are gonna vat and shares are gonna ale. I could bring the worlds' economies down if I don't act quickly.

To start with, say, 20 different items in the $500 range. Over $500, it's pretty hard to get anything for less than 60% and, of course, that drops off rapidly... by the time ya get to a $1000 price tag, yer just wastin yer time.
