Not sure if this belongs in conspiracies or not but I didn't know where else to put it. It's actually a moan so might be more suitable for the rant cat.

I was browsing around this morning looking for Christmas pressies for folk and found this smashing toy on Amazon.

Fisher-Price Shake 'n Go! Disney/Pixar Cars 2 - World Grand Prix

price - $45.97

wow, not bad.

So I looked it up on UK Amazon (because I live inthe UK) and found it was £119.47

www.amazon.com...
www.amazon.co.uk...=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1315990883&sr=8-2

Shocker. Big difference.

So this got me thinking about the cost of "stuff" and how much prices vary across the globe.

generally stuff costs around $100 where i am. there are things that are more expensive than that, but, for the most part you can expect to pay around $100 for stuff.

Hmmmm. Well ,I live in Texas and the cost of stuff varies ,its a pretty wide range, it can be anywhere from under a buck all the way up into the thousands , tens of thousands. I guess it all depends where you buy the stuff and which kind of stuff. Good luck on your thread and finding the prices of stuff.

What is the point of this thread?

Cost of stuff varies, from tens of cents to hundreds of €. Drink and food are around 1-2 €, other stuff goes higher.

Edit: Oh, I see now

Its not just the 'stuff'.

HAHAHA , must be because I am on ATS but I was thinking the loud bang on the door would be something like The MIB, a ghost, or TPTB. Hahaha never occurred to me it would be something "normal". How sad is that, I was thinking oh now we can get a whole other thread outta this. Hahahaha

Minimum wage rates in the UK:

£5.93 - the main rate for workers aged 21 and over
£4.92 - the 18-20 rate
£3.64 - the 16-17 rate for workers above school leaving age but under 18
£2.50 - the apprentice rate, for apprentices under 19 or 19 or over and in the first year of their apprenticeship

To stick with ZeroReady's example's, going for store brand and roughly calculated from euro's and the metric system, then in the Netherlands we approximately pay this:
Loaf of bread: $1.40 for whole wheat, white bread is around $1
Gallon of milk:$4
Gallon of gas: $9
1 Bedroom Rental: $550 monthly depending on where you life. My 2 bedroom apartment in the outskirts of town is $600/month but the same apartment could easily be 4x as much in the city.
Avocados: $1.30 a piece

The minimum wage for 23 and up is $11
For a 15 year old it's $3.40 and everything else is in between.
