This is what $6,000 looks like.


What costs less than this:

My car
Both of my bicycles, combined
A year's worth of El passes
9 round-trip tickets to London
My groceries for a year
Taxes on my condo for 4 years
Sponsorship of a third-world child for 13 years
George's thyroid medication for 40 years
Traveling to Hungary, including airfare, hotel, and dental fees, to have the crowns made for this.

(Which here would cost another $6,000.)

Why do you have two bicycles?

Different kinds of bicycles. One works better on paved roads; one works better on non-paved roads.
