I was out shooting some books this weekend and after I shot up this one book I got to thinking with my mind. What if this that book became one of those books your'e always hearing about what gets to be worth a million dollars in like a thousand years or something? So I just lost a million dollars. Thats' whats' retarded.

supply and demand. You should shoot everyone else's copy of that book too so no one get that million dollars. If you can't have it, no one should.

Snickety, if you had your VCR you wouldn't have been out shotting. You would've been wathcing old Wheel episodes. And then you would have a million dollar book. ANd then you could buy a four head VCR and pay someone to stay home and record whatever you want.

Let's have some fun shall we? Let's assume, a modest 2% interest rate.

So, (1 Million) * (1.02^-1000) = .00251

Snickety, you actually lost a quarter of a penny. Was the fun you got from shooting that book worth at least a quarter of a penny? I'm going to say yes, and that you actually came out ahead in this transaction.

I think snikeyts is thinking more about pv in 100 years. there weren't any books 1,000 years ago.

So, with inflation, in 1000 years a normal brand new book would cost, like - what? - 50 million dollars?
Yeah. Better off without that stupid worthless million dollar book.

Snick what you needs is changing of shooting items. See if you shot garbage cans youd be good cuz nobody ever spent a million dollars on a garbage can but be sure it has no baby in it and no NFL footballs because one day one of those will be million dollars.

I'll take your word for it. I learned present-value calculations a long time ago, and, even if I could consult it, my interest-theory textbook is riddled with bullet holes.
