new, at yardsale. Yard art, but we hung it inside. I think this could easily kill a guest. It’s hung on a Cobra hook that is pretty much impossible to fail. However… It’s still a bit scary to think of this falling on someone’s head.

BACKSTORY: Got up around 8:50AM, made it out driving by ~9:15 and went out until 2:27PM for a total of 5.25 hours. Spent .55 plus ~.66 gas for 40.0 miles of driving (14 mpg @ .73/G), for a total cost of .21. We drove to 24 yard sales, stopping at 15 (62%) of them. We made 44 purchases (69 items) for a total estimated value of 4.81, leading to a profit/savings of 3.60. So in essence, we multiplied our .21 investment by 11.44X. (Also, if you think about it, the profit counts for even more when you consider that we have to earn ~0 on the job, pre-tax, in order to take home the 9 in cash that we saved. How long does 0 of disposable income take to earn, vs the 5.25 hrs we spent here?) Anyway, this works out to a *post-tax* "wage" of 4.26/hr as a couple or .13/hr per person.
