With the price of disinfectant these days you probably would have lost money.  ;D

Its funny, I was thinking of all the crazy risky things I have done in my lifetime. Fast cars, fast boats, skydiving, and other dumb stuff I am too embarrassed to admit. Yet the other day I did one of the most life threatening things ever.  I went to the supermarket.

It basically says that it's not worth for Bill Gates to pick $100 bill from the pavement, since his time spent picking the bill is worth much more than $100.

You have to admit that going to supermarket is much more fun that the other things you listed.

Right when COVID-19 went live in America in March, the crappiest brands and items were sold out. The high end stuff generally was still available.
Life is too short for cheap beer and wine.
