£50,000 in electronics and PAL stuff? Either you're a professional horder or are over speculating what you'd get for most electronics. Most electronics, you can sell for around half the price of new. Heck, even vintage things like the NES and such wouldn't be worth that much! (in fact, I've yet to see the NES actually accumulate in price: Still too many functioning ones around (blast Nintendo and their consoles that always seem to work).Originally Posted by daviduk200
Is that based on the average house price being 7X the annual wage? (for the local area).so thats $1 million, but yeah wel i wont save up £500,000 on work that would take me at least 7 years lol.
To be fair, I doubt you could live off it for that long. The cost of living, even in wealthy countries, for the lower-classes or the lower-middle classes is so far up, it's why there's so many people taking out credit cards and getting into debt (heck, all the debt consolidation adverts are targetted at the middle-classes (people who own their own homes and such)).ill just work for one year and live of that.
Isn't that countering the "American dream"? "The land of opportunity" and such? Or is that just basically an advert of "come to America"?Originally Posted by Brawny
