You have no idea how much salmon costs.
Well, of course not! I don't buy salmon. I've never eaten salmon. But again, you had to act like a [insert expletive here] and just say I don't know what salmon costs, then give zero information to tell me. So, then, someone else starts doubling down on this and is quoting prices of

Lead me to believe the numbers I quoted were too low. But since you acted like a goddam 1970s compiler in which you pass it a 1,000 line program and at the end it says "Error." No indication of where the error is or what the error is. Act like a [expletive deleted], you get treated likev one.

Since you were never intending to be acting fairly, I will presume Jonsey isn't either, so I won't expect anything from him. You know what? You win, I am now exiting this conversation.

I am acting fairly. You find one place in America for less than 70, 80 bucks a pound and I send the key immediately.

And. . . This is why we have a botulism\salmon thread. Maybe throw some extra coin and get some decent fish.

You really missed out buddy, good salmon is delicious. And you're 100% right about the cost of good, fresh salmon.

Paul, let me illustrate your disease:

You look something up on the internet, or infer something from what you looked up on the internet, and come here and state it as a fact, even though you have no idea what you're talking about, and then get all pissy when someone tells you you're wrong, instead of the alternative, which would be not posting authoritatively about things you know nothing about.

But then all that would be left would be your signature storage thread, and given the storage and hosting costs associated with that one, ICJ may not be able to afford to keep it around much longer.

Hold up, we need to play your walk-off song after a take like that.
