    I bought some foreign currency from some kid in school for about $5 (middle school, about 4 years ago O_O). I, being awesome, went to the currency exchange at my local mall and it ended up being worth around 160 USD! I never did tell him about it...

    My company that I was working for was liquidating new laptops from a project that didn't take off. I purchased 2x HP Pavillion dv6415s that were selling at $799.99 at retail for $220 each. I sold one of them and gave the other one to my brother.

    They also had XBox 360 Elites for $99.99 open box and $279.99 brand new...I regret not biting on that deal. BADLY.

    Well, the only thing I got was a Metroid Prime game, back when it was $49.99 for 15 bucks.

    My life hasn't been a cheap one, that's for sure.

    Congratulations.
    You've just discovered a portion of the black market.

    Delinquent kids always have the best prices, but you've gotta watch their eyes.

    I found a 20" flat screen monitor in the trash. (Not really trash, more like technology disposal bin)

    I looked inside, saw a bulging capacitor, bought a new one at radio shack for $1.49, took all of 10 minutes to solder and reassemble.

    Talking to you guys on it right now!

    $1.49 flat screen!
