I've often been amazed by the unrealistically insane asking prices for some items on sites such as Ebay and Amazon (like a bottle of hot sauce for $500 IIRC), and -- supply and demand economics aside -- have genuinely wondered if some of the sellers were thus engaged in a form of money laundering.

Either money laundering or supplying something "Extra" with the indicated item
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and DITCH the brake !!!

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL

Failure may not be an OPTION, but it is ALWAYS a POSSIBILITY.
