For Marko...

...in honor of his recent lament:
"Not long ago I moved from New York City to a small town in New Hampshire. I didn't know much about country life, but I was in love with New England scenery. I wanted to do my writing in an atmosphere of pastoral serenity. And I felt a need for a healthier life. Also, I'd never had a roof repaired so I thought New York was the most expensive place on earth to live." -P.J. O'Rourke, "Moving To New Hampshire"

See, the problem is, he PAID someone to do the roof, in a state where you typically do stuff yourself. Is it any wonder he got gouged?
