Interesting thoughts:

One:

“I have the largest seashell collection on the planet. I keep it

scattered on beaches around the world.” – Steven Wright

Two:

Coveting possessions is unhealthy. Here’s how I look at it:

All of the computers on Ebay are mine. In fact, everything on Ebay is

already mine. All of those things are just in long term storage that I

pay nothing for. Storage is free.

When I want to take something out of storage, I just pay the for the

storage costs for that particular thing up to that point, plus a

nominal shipping fee, and my things are delivered to me so I can use

them. When I am done with them, I return them to storage via

Craigslist or Ebay, and I am given a fee as compensation for freeing

up the storage facilities resources.

This is also the case with all of my stuff that Amazon and Walmart are

holding for me. I have antiques, priceless art, cars, estates, and

jewels beyond the dreams of avarice.

The world is my museum, displaying my collections on loan. The James

Savages of the world are merely curators.
