    Just goes to show you - money doesn't always buy good taste (among other concepts in the world like love)

    ever been to the puerto rican airport? the alchohol is at least 35% cheaper than anything you find at your local liquor store.

    a liter of absolut vodka is $11 there compared to $18 here. bottle of grey goose is $22 compared to $37. the alchohol there is cheaper than it is anywhere in puerto rico or the states.

    but generally speaking, yea, the airport prices are whack.

    My pair

    $167 retail

    Maverick Slouchy in Mercer

    With a loose waist meant to be worn lower on the hips, the five pocket Slouchy jean is all about comfort. It's a relaxed straight leg that is roomy through the hip and thigh and finishes with a straight leg opening. Mercer is a stretch fabrication in a super dark un-faded denim with no whiskers, abrasion or distress.

    You should try the generic Wal-Mart brand (Persona Tri-Flexxx). I get at least 5 quality shaves out of each one and a pack of 4 costs less than $3.00.

    Walking through the Cancun airport is like running the gauntlet. If you can get through there without a vendor offering to sell you a mexican blanket or his "yunk", then you must be a sprinter.

    But most those can score a person that's cool points and catch occassional eye and be Mr./Mrs. Jones aka the Joneses.



    Items
    -----------------------------------------
    Gas: especially when it wasn't to long ago when we were paying less than 1.50 for gas and so much is to be used in the world.

    Film Cameras: Personal request, since I make video projects here there....anything over $5000 for camera is utterly ridiculous. Damn, thing doesn't even cost half of that to make.

    Accessories to most electronic items: See Above

    Precious Metals: Well at least in the United States.

    Education: Really does it take $3,000 to $150,000 dollars a year to educate someone. Do we really need Dept. of Education sucking up millions for an expensive, yet generally poor quality(corrupted) educational system.

    Dates and relationships (certain women): No explanations needed, one of the most horrible investments you can make, sometimes. Especially when you don't gain anything from it. Let's be honest bad relationships usually don't effect women as much in pockets, while a man's who lifestyle can change.

    Movie Tickets: $10 for a $1oo million dollar crappy movie, not nearly as bad as the one above, but I pay some filthy rich actors, producers, directors, and etc $10 - $20 to waste 2 hours out of my life for an unwatchable and below average movie. I can't even get a refund, if I don't like it.
