I'm having trouble understanding how "more than I could afford"
automagically equals stupid.
I came into a small inheritance last spring and paid stupid money for
several Amiga items off eBay. I wanted them, I had wanted them for a
while, I could *afford* them, and I bid on them till I won them.
Stupid? I dunno. My spousal equivalent sure doesn't understand why
hat stuff is worth so much to me. But I have to say that a year later,
I'm still getting my money's worth. I'd say that subjectively, each
piece was worth what I paid. What its objective value might be, I don't
give a damn. It ain't for sale.
Furthermore, and I think it's you that usually points this out, each
item was worth about $5 less than my price to at least one other collector.
