Who wants to buy all my watches?

I’ll keep the MDV.

$40 beater on cheap strap I used a watch buckle to punch another hole through so it’s fitting of a $40 watch I don’t worry about.

Today is one of those days where I don’t even know why I like watches. It’ll pass. But the thought comes up sometimes.

yeah coming down today. Our living room is so nicely decorated so we left it for a little longer this time.

I have done that sold all my watches and kept a Marlin Duro like yours but on bracelet and added cyclops, perfect watch for a little while until my reboot. That was when I stopped wearing any watch for a month and caused a reboot of my watch journey last year which will finish up with the auction sale of my Longines on eBay tomorrow. Selling off is hard work but worth it in the end if you figure out what you want.

Dealers think in terms of kilos and grams, users in terms of ounces, in my observation. An Ohaus triple beam scale got many a dealer arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia back in the day.

Now you can buy these pocket size electronic scales for cheap...

For reasons I won't get into... 28g in an ounce, divides nicely into half and quarter ounces. Always thought this would be a great, practical way to teach fractions and metric/SI conversions in schools. FWIW, the new wave of legal retailers are selling in grams...

Case in point. Actually, there is 28.3495 grams in an ounce.

It depends on the drug.

At the wholesale level, meth in the US is still usually measured in pounds. Same with marijuana. Cocaine and heroin are mostly measured in kilos.

Also, if you are buying from a Mexican drug trafficking organization, they typically measure ounces at 25 grams, not 28. I got into a heated argument in the middle of an undercover narcotics deal over this exact quirk.
