These yellow bastards are tiny as fuck if they think 5XL is 118cm..

Anyway, I can't decide between this shirt:

And this one:

I'm learning towards the yellow one. It's got an orange zest feel to it.
Only issue is it's not plaid.

Yellow.

Not a real fan of either one. I don't wear yellow as it makes me look like I am jaundiced...some people have a skin tone that works with it though.

The other one makes me nuts. As someone who has sewn clothing, the black buttons down the burgundy stripe drive me crazy.

Calm down. I'm tired, and when tired my dyslexia is still worse. I misread what you said. It wasn't an attack. I'm not making an excuse, but damn it wasn't anything major. I only go off on theists who shit over us in threads.

I wasn't "oh, fuck it"-ing at you. More at myself, as in, fuck it, I'm tired and I don't want to go there Rolleyes

For a second I felt like I'd stepped into the book I'm translating, and was being addressed by an elven prince or something Laugh out load

(I do have a love triangle between an elven prince, a half-elf and a fucking annoying goody-two-shoes of a female character whom I cannot stand and she pisses me off but good. But I digress...)

Seriously, sorry you thought I was cursing at you. I tend to make it absolutely clear when I *am* indeed cursing at someone and not just in general Rolleyes

RE: Ranting corner
Man I could really use $20,000 right about now.
I think I'm gonna give my idea of buying and selling watches ago. I honestly don't know why I haven't, I can afford it, it's a pretty solid idea. One of the watches I was gonna start with I can buy from China for $2USD, which is a little less than $3NZD, free shipping. I could easily sell them for $10. I work at a big box retailer that sells cheap shit and our watches like this one are like $20-35. So I could probably get $15 or $20 for them but $10 is probably more realistic with shipping. That's like an 80% margin on $15, 70% on $10. You can't really sneeze at 70% margins. Hell, I could sell them for $5 and that'd still be a 40% margin with minimal work on my part (post office is just down the road).
It takes time, getting the product, listing and finding a buyer, shipping to the buyer, but it's mostly downtime and actual time on my part invested would be minimal and time that I would otherwise spend just playing video games. Plus its experience. And I'm not gonna know the potential for reward until I actually give it ago.

So here's my plan. These things cost $3NZD a pop. I take $15 and get 5 of these fuckers. I list them for $15 each. If they don't sell I list them for $10. When they sell I take the first $15 and keep it to pay for my initial investment of $15. Any money after that is profit (not taking into account time spent which we'll just assume at this point I'm paying myself in 'experience'.) and I use said money and invest it right back into inventory. So if all 5 sell for $15, I get $75. I take out $15 leaving me with $60. I take $60 and buy 20 of these fuckers. Rinse and repeat until demand reaches some sort of equilibrium where the amount of money coming in isn't needed to buy inventory. Use 'excess' money as profit and pay for my Chinese sweet and sour pork addiction.

I theory if I was selling 20 of these fuckers a week at $15 a pop I could quit my job. Not that I would. If by some miracle it even got to that kind of size (which I have little faith it ever would but one can dream) I'd want it much higher to allow for fluctuations that were in my "pay all the bills" margin of error if I was going to quit my job.

Why the fuck can't I edit my post I literally just made? Ah whatever.

"I theory if I was selling 20 of these fuckers a week at $15 a pop I could quit my job. Not that I would.

This is wrong, I forgot to take into account the need to buy more stock. I'd need to sell 25 or so.
