Apology accepted :-) As I've said, I don't have a big problem with people
making money off this stuff, but if you buy into that up front, then let
it be Jim who makes the money. He knows where he can get the best price.

However, if money isn't the main goal, there are alternatives that work.
Following your reasoning, all of the museums would be empty.

I'll go $200, and I'll ensure that people learn something about it and
from it.
