Hang on... ...can we take a minute here. If people go re-inventing the English language to come up with their own defintions no-one will know what they mean.
The official Oxford English Dictionary Definition of Bargain is:
noun: 2. A thing bought or offered for sale much more cheaply than is usual or expected
(Source: bargain - definition of bargain in English from the Oxford dictionary
What are you buying here:
- A Rib (generically)
- An Old SR4, porn star layout with beat up tubes, ona rusty trailer with a 30HP manual Start Engine thats needed a refurb?
Yip - £1k for happiness is possibly a bargain. BUT will a £1k old beat up RIB bring true happiness? Or will it bring as much misery repairing the trailer at the roadside on the tow home, being towed back ashore with engine problems or handing over £3k for a new set of toobs when you discover those ones aren't up to the job. All hard to tell. I certainly wouldn't say this was a sure fire way to happiness.
A generic rib... ...yip. £1k for a rib with engine on a trailer is cheap. But there are plenty of old beat up ribs that do come up "cheap"
An Old SR4 blah blah... as I said its on the money its not especially cheap, its not over priced. So that makes it not a bargain...
