    delivery guy dropped off a big order of drink cans last night which I some times buy from woolies when they have specials, which i buy for stock for a vending machine I have.
    any way received a big bag of those stupid rubber toys they give out.
    Onto ebay they went with a 99cent start and 24 hours auction, the bids were enough to buy a 1/10 gold coin.
    People are idiots the shit they buy, worthless junk you can get for free.
    I have another delivery from woolies tonight lol as I reached my daily limit for the number of drinks I can buy at one time, so I break the orders over two nights, as its usually a few grand worth of drinks So I get allot of these stupid things lol.
    So see If I can turn this useless rubbery shit into another 1/10 gold coin.
    and people wonder why we are heading to the toilet Financially when the general public spends hundreds of bucks on garbage.

    Value is subjective. First rule of economics.

    I have acquired over 1 ounce of gold from cashing it 10 cent cans / bottles. My neighbors just give them to me.

    Yer the cash for cans thing is a good little money scam.
    I keep cans also, cash them in every month or so and that goes into my daughters school fund for when she is old enough for school, I think there will be a good chunk of savings in there by then, so books, uniforms and dental stuff hopefully covered by that savings.
    I have a recycle bin in my laundromat just for empty cans. its a good little money earner that can bin. lol.

    there are some great little money scams out there thats for sure lol

    This reminds me of the "Cash a Can" scheme that different community clubs were running in the 70/80's. Turn up to designated carpark corner on a Saturday with glad bags full of aluminum cans, old mate weighed them using a fruit scale with hook and paid you a few bucks before he loaded them into his high side trailer.

    Luckily my old man liked the odd KB or two and that generated some extra coin when I was a kiddie.

    I wish I could sell "modern art".

    It'd be nice to be able to sell my unmade bed for a fortune just like Tracey Emins.

    The things some people will spend money on blows my mind

    So one man's trash is another man's treasure?

    I am sure I have heard that somewhere before!

    you can solve that problem with one simple solution.
    with a back hand.

    sadly these days if little timmy wants his Ooshie, he chucks a tanty and mummy and daddy will pay stupid money for it.
