So in 5 years time, the lunchboxes' values will be more than $20.00.  So don't
worry Nate,  you're one of the selected few who can buy the lunchbox, unlike
we in Malaysia, where it's difficult to get such kind of item.

Anyway, I agreed(TM) of what Finn Smith typed about this.  From my
experience,  I cannnot trace back where my money went after spending it on
certain items such as movies, junk food, etc.....  Unlike that, buying things
that we can keep made me able to trace back where my money went - to things
such as stamps, first day covers, Groo comic books, clothes, PC etc.  In your
case, you can trace back the money you spent on the Groo lunchbox and the
value of the lunchbox will increase by years.  It's a bit like an investment,
Nate.  Other groopers/ies, what is your opinion?
