Inadequacy and Modesty

This couldn't have come at a better time. Was just having a conversation with my roommate not two hours ago about buying the iPhone X the first day it comes out, then flying to Argentina (the most expensive country to buy iPhones in the world) and flipping it there.

My argument against it was: "There has to be some reason why this won't work, if it was that lucrative, everyone would be doing it already."

But he reminded me that:

  1. Not everyone speaks fluent enough Spanish, like I do, to navigate the trenches of the Argentinian black market.
  2. Not everyone cares enough, or has enough free time. to wake up at 3 AM and go wait in line at an Apple Store to buy the newest piece of technology.
