"Large increases in cost
with questionable increases in performance
can be tolerated only in race horses and women." Lord Kelvin..

Quality is like buying Oats. If you want nice, clean, fresh oats
you must pay a fair price.
 However if you can be satisfied with oats that has already
been through the horse, that comes a little cheaper.
