“I have the largest seashell collection on the planet. I keep it
scattered on beaches around the world.” – Steven Wright
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.
