Another basis for value...
What someone is willing to pay (that's where your completed auctions come in).
I was just at a gun show a few hours ago, and saw a beautiful Python, either polished stainless or nickel, I can't tell the difference when the seller won't let me pick it up, and picking it up wasn't on my list of priorities at $3800 bucks. Not when they can be found on rare occasions for as little as $800, and regularly at $1500.
Come if you must, but only if you must. For the day you find yourself upon my step, will surely be the night you find peace along Jordan's edge.
I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillement of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause, and lies exhausted on the field of battle... Victorious.
Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
