    Where the hell are you shopping?

    The No Frills near you has a 10lb bag for $1.87, and they are fresh... I bought a bag of these this week:

    We always buy our Potatoes at No Frills as well. I thought I read some place recently that it was a bumper Potato Crop this year.

    E-mail I dug up from 2011:

    I will check tomorrow but I think I have an 8 lb of A2230, which is very popular and $22.00/lb in 8 lb jug.

    Flat of primers and 5M 224 – 55 FMJ bullet, we will go $90.00 on 5,000, primers are $29.00/flat.

    Since you’re buying 5,000 bulk[bullets], I will reduce to $90.00/1000 from the $100.00 I quoted you on the phone for 2,000. Kurt
    1 lbs of of A2230 today: $54.99 vs $22.00 10 years ago: 146% increase
    Small rifle primers: $50 / 1000 ($0.05 / primer) vs $29/1000 ($0.029 / primer) 10 years ago: 72% price increase
    55 gn FMJ bullets: $99 / 500 ($0.198 / bullet) vs $90 / 1000 ($0.09 / bullet) 10 years ago: 120% increase

    Damn... I wish I bought more...

    Using the CUPE's inflation calculator here: https://cupe.ca/cpi-calculator

    If you're salary increased proportionally to Canada's compounded annual inflation rate (1.63%), you're salary would have increased 16.63% in the same time interval.

    Lemon Pledge used to be popular with the huffers. Regular (unscented?) was no go.

    Apparently Lysol spray has a high percentage of drinkable alcohol in it too, and is popular with bottomed out alcoholics. I cant even imagine how low someone has to be in order to get to that point in life.

    It is pretty pathetic the depths people sink to to feed their addictions.

    Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to do some work in someone's septic tank so I can make enough money to shoot in a trap tournament tomorrow.
    Why does the rest of the country get first dibbs on half my income?

    As for pricing I actually don't know what I paid since I forgot to ask and I just get a shipping label at the time. They email me a bill later on.

    I installed a short run yesterday from the house to the shed outside. They are literally separated by three feet. The fittings cost me as much as the pre-packaged bag of nmwu 14/2. I remember when I installed security cameras in my old place, the plastic conduit components cost next to nothing, and were basically an afterthought.

    I didn't even use a gfci, as the plug is inside the shed, and it's mostly to run little things like chargers.
    And yet, after nearly 10 years of government by Stephen Harper and his anti-choice army, you can still get an abortion in Canada. At this point, the political right’s agenda is so well hidden Sherlock Holmes couldn’t find it with a Huawei P30 powered by a trillion Watsons.

    Electrical code was changed a few years ago. New receptacle's in garages need GFCI.

    I always follow code, especially when it makes no sense. Things are getting ridiculous. Are you even allowed a standard breaker anywhere now?
    When I moved in to current house, I spent the first winter upgrading things from "unsafe, ready to catch fire" to "meets code from when the house was built".
