    Default How to make a $1500 sandwich in 6 months

    From the YouTube description:

    I spent 6 months and $1500 to completely make a sandwich from scratch. Including growing my own vegetables, making my own salt from ocean water, milking a cow to make cheese, grinding my own flour from wheat, collecting my own honey, and killing a chicken myself.

    That was cool.

    It's crazy how the economies of scale and modern economics has made that entire sandwich possible for about $4.50 and takes no longer than the time it takes to go to the grocery store, buy the ingredients, and assemble it when you get home.

    When you think about all of the effort that goes into making that possible, it's astounding.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    And when you think about it, he still had to use modern equipment others made in order to do it. I he didn't build and learn to fly his own plane, he used his stove and a bread maker, etc...

    I think this is a bit of an update on Milton Friedman and the pencil.

    Back when we did everything ourselves, we were much poorer for it, and we had to work a lot harder for a lot less

    I'm always amazed when i read about how our ancestors of just a couple centuries ago lived. Most people today take everything for granted and don't realize how easy we really have it.
