At times...

Has anyone else gone completely out of their, in my case this is very limited, realm of knowledge after they have hit 30 to find something incredibley intriguing that causes a moment of say... "Huh, look at that statement."

I read this...

The real price of every thing, what every thing really costs to the man who wants to acquire it, is the toil and trouble of acquiring it. What every thing is really worth to the man who has acquired it, and who wants to dispose of it or exchange it for something else, is the toil and trouble which it can save to himself, and which it can impose upon other people.(Wealth of Nations Book 1, chapter V) -Adam Smith

I'll be chewing on this one for days.
