    If there were really any sharp posters in here...

    There would be a thread keeping track of the hundreds of thousands they made selling solar eclipse glasses.

    It isn't like this snuck up on us, we should have bought 100 thousand of those things at 50 cents or $1 a piece long ago and sold them the past 2 weeks at $7-8 per

    Can't believe I missed this opportunity

    Wow $15

    I'm serious some of us should have seen this coming. Possibly could have made over a mill if we bought 100k year ago. How long have they known this was coming, 50 years?

    That soon? I heard 28 years for a total solar eclipse. Either way. Might as well stock up, and make bank.

    Amazon weeded out a bunch of sellers so if you stock up on the wrong ones, you could be holding a bunch of useless paper.

    In LA and a lot of So Cal it's supposed to be cloudy so there are going to be a lot of people looking at clouds instead of an eclipse with 15$ glasses.

    Thanks for the compliment then dlo. We bought 12000 pairs of glasses for 89 cents each and sold them at our dispensaries and other nearby shops. Didn't make as much as we could have since we donated 2000 to local schools.
