The university had it’s monthly surplus sale today. During my 10 minutes between classes I walked past it by chance. I decided to take a look.
Lots and lots of 4 and 5 year old gateway computers… lots of monitors…. quite a few large televisions (already sold)… some copy machines… rack-mount servers…. printers…. a card catalog (that somebody bought)… and I found an old box on a shelf. It was a carrying case. I opened it up and found an old, maybe 1950ish condenser microphone.
I like microphones, so I asked how much it was. She sold it to me for ten dollars.
Just now I went on to ebay to see if there were any on sale there. There was one sold on august 21st of this year for 1,599.99 dollars US.
I’m thinking… yeah.
