Ticket to Ride

A couple of days ago, I spent my last $100 in the world on something resembling this:

A TTC metropass means unlimited - yes - unlimited mobility! No more paper transfers! No more fumbling for change! No more meticulous planning of my trips downtown in order to cut down on token usage!

Oh bliss! Oh joy unrivalled!

This is going to be the greatest month of my life.

You spent $100 on something resembling that, which is clearly priced at $32.50? No wonder you don't have any money left, sucker.

ya broke down and got one, eh? sometimes, i think my life would be vastly improved upon if i acquired a metropass... other times i think "my money can be spent on other things! more enjoyable things!"

it makes sense though, seeing as how you're all the way in the scarbs. really, if i had a metropass, living in the downtown area... i'd never walk. i'd be all, "gotta get my money's worth, yo!" and i think i eat too much to give up walking.

DUDE IT WILL BE AWESOME RIDING THE TTC IN FEBRUARY 1982.

You can look at all the moustaches and tight pants and Members Only Club jackets.

Just make sure that your parents don't fall in love with you. The consquences could be dire, Marty!

Uh, I mean.. Sofi.

oh but f'serious for a sec:

the inflation calculator, which tracks increases in prices based on the CPI, says this:

'What cost $32.50 in 1982 would cost $65.93 in 2005.'
