totally in/sane economy, to start with.... but hey, as my master used to say: boys, you can be stupid as hell, but you gotta know how to improvise in life..... ok, 1 hacksaw, 1 cut, 1/2 price > 2 rings out of one figure-8.... " makes sense".... screw (chopchop) capital/ism... xerra
ordered a bolt i saw online and want to check out. 1.70 euros, free shipping. came in a bag the size of a small dog. shipping-documents, inside plastic envelope, taped to outside, inside another set of papers, also inside a plastic bag. bolt in another bag. .... how many hands might this bolt have gone through until it got here (not counting the hands etc that went into the materials to make it,... etc etc). the guy who dropped it off said he had to make a detour of his normal route to get up here (small village in the mountains of spain).... without throwing numbers at the cost of just his detour: figure just the drive up here (dead-end-road) from the ´main´-road costs about 1/4 of the purchase price.
