I just said that because it's mostly what I have had on my mind today, aside from aliens and dirt, and I figured I'd share before offering up the end of Edison's last piece on big boxes and retail. I don't recall exactly where I left him off, weeks ago now, but we have chatted, and he's on another tear, and I told him I'll put the rest on here, having thought I already did, but he is correctamundo: you never got your homework assignment.

I’ll discuss the concept of Economic Indexing in more detail at some point, but there is something that you can do for me or for “us” to make this all the more meaningful. When you go to a convenience store keep notes on what you buy, and the prices you pay. We will want to know the name of the product, the size (quantity), the price, the date, and a rough location of purchase. This Economic Warrior Research will take a couple months. In the meantime, I’ll be giving you some theory that will help you to understand why we are doing this. Feel free to include or exclude items that may have shock factors involved like condoms an Kotex? If you have questions or comments, you send them through MissDangerPants.
