Same tobacco reviewed on SPC.
After waiting several days for my wife to finally leave out of town I decided to dip into our childs college fund to order some. Needless to say my kid will now have to go to public school and a community college! After breaking open the box and spilling half of it on the floor I grabbed the vacuum cleaner and sucked up all the little bits. I decided to just light the filter on the Dyson on fire and take long deep breaths of this amazing tobacco. Needless to say I can taste colors and see sounds. I will for sure be getting more ASAP!

Old money tends to avoid conspicuous consumption, so it's gotta be dot-com boom people.

Who is paying that price?
There are people in this world that collect top end sports cars. People that wear $10,000 shoes, every day. Guys that will drop $1000 on a meal that includes a live cobra field dressed at their table. They have accountants begging them to spend more money daily to get their expenses up enough to hit brackets that will help them save more money in the long run. You see these people in downtown Ashville, NC, buying artwork and piling it in a truck to start their evening bonfire with on the mountain.

Serfs who hit the big time, sounds like it. We get a lot of them here from South America and Asia, basically spending money like there's no tomorrow. I can't complain about entries into the local economy, but they do subsidize a kind of sycophant class of people who then, themselves, get quite wealthy. What is interesting to me is seeing the first layer of those businesses fail as the founders are revealed to be more lucky than wise.

Cost of things is relative.

It's true. If you have a hundred million in the bank, a $1000 tin of tobacco is just a regular tin of tobacco that is slightly more expensive.
If you live in a converted armoire in the middle of a dump, then it's your yearly income.

Yeh, we keep an eye out for folks that buy new appliances this time of year. A new refrigerator box would really be a nice addition to my home. :puffy:

You guys can joke but it is really disappointing that I can't get the 5% discount at SPC if they still had 5 tins.
