|Spool of indium wire.|
This is one of several spools of indium wire I got on eBay for about half the market price at the time. My theory is that the reason it went so cheap is that the seller listed it as 63.5 ounces, while the market price of indium is generally quoted in kilograms. Nobody did the math.
See, there are some advantages to living in a country with a dysfunctional education system: More chances to take advantage of the innumerate. Oh, why bother pretending, this place is going to the dogs, what more proof do you need than below-market indium?
