You big high rollers are on your way to do some serious gambling in Vegas, you stop in Yermo to buy some jerky, and you're even thinking about the price of jerky. Who gives a fk. In three more hours you're going to be betting black chips, playing $5 Double Double Bonus, and buying $100 hookers. Just pay the guy for the most expensive jerky he has, and get going, before you get caught in traffic. Life is short.



I think about this all the time—agonizing about whether to pay $5 for a bottled drink or $25 for a shirt when I'll probably be dropping $100 when I gamble later. But then, that's what the local casino economy wants you to think: throw your money away here, instead of throwing it away at the casino.

But regarding jerky, for me, it's more about whether I can get what "feels" like a good amount for less than $8. So 4 ounces, maybe? That works out to $32/pound.

I was just kidding. Well, kinda kidding.
'Emergencies' have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded.
