Another Amazon Ripoff

I needed that fluid that goes with the brush that cleans a vinyl LP.  No need to mention the product; it’s well known.  My last bottle lasted for almost four years, but finally ran dry as things do.

I went to Mr. Bezos’ Amazon boutique and the cheapest price I could find, for a little more than one ounce of the liquid, was over twenty dollars.  US dollars.

A quick online search led me to an audiophile shop where the same product sold for four dollars, plus a buck and a half shipping, and no non-consensual psychological research thrown in for free.

So I bought two bottles.  At my rate of consumption, that should last till 2027.  By then, President Bezos and Vice-President Zuckerberg will be in full swing, giving speeches about “privilege.”  I can hardly wait.
