The fantasy of collectors everywhere-(mostly automotive)-that they'll stumble upon a mint condition vintage 'Benz or Ferrari
in a barn or airplane hangar somewhere between N.Y/L.A....owned by someone just happy to get rid of it.Uh-huh.
COLLECTOR:"My 300SL Roadster was a BARN FIND from an estate sale on a river town in Southern Indiana.Family was just happy to be rid of the thing at 90k.Imagine that!"
COLLECTOR 2:"Enough with your fish stories!Even in desperation
nobody let's that rig go for less than 300K.There's photos of you at Barrett Jackson last month anyway."
A person who is continually developing, selling and moving to a new 'home' as often as the tax laws allow them. Superficial neighbour with no real interest in community who uses their home as a way to climb the social ladder and/or make money. For example, may sell and move house every 13 months, if the law requires them to stay over 12 months to avoid paying a tax on the profit from its sale.
Partner1: I met the new neighbours today at the old place over the road...
Partner2: Yeah, we talked on the weekend - if they do to what they did to their last place they won't stay - they are just bloody serial developers.

A holiday in the United States made to celebrate our past presidents. (Including George W. Bush and Nixon)
When the United States of America won the Revolutionary War in 1783 the People wanted George Washington to be King, but he just wanted to sit on his ass at his luxury estate in Virginia. So instead the People had to settle with him being President, and in their sadness the People decided to hold a birthday party every year for Washington. Politicians later in the 1990s the idiots who invented Political Correctness changed the name from Our King's Birthday to President's Day, and decided that would be a good reason to have 50% off sweaters at JC Penny's.
"Back in my day we walked barefoot through the snow to school. Uphill both ways! And President's Day didn't exist! We celebrated King George Washington's Birthday!"
"Don't miss our semi-annual President's Day Sale. All sweaters: 50% off!"
