Do you let the gas tank in your car run dry? Do you drain your water heater before you refill it? Do you make Gabe use his last diaper before you buy a new pallet?!? Ye gods, man, how could you run out of ethanol?!?!

Re: How much to do need to live off of in RE

My wife said the same thing when she asked if she could get me another one yesterday and I said we were out. "How the hell did you let THAT happen?"...

Usually I keep a case lot out in our fancy dan GE garage refrigerator (which is NOT happy with the 100 degree weather we're having this week). And I fill up gas tanks at halfway so the wife never has to do it. And dont even ask about diapers. My wifes eyes roll whenever I mention that I just got another great diaper deal off of amazon. In fact I'm still running a $40 amazon credit from the last deal, and I've been spending about 8c a diaper...

Like I said in another thread, the analysis just finds other outlets...
