Sometimes I like to search for “common” things on Amazon—like watches, headphones, water bottles, etc.—and then sort the results by price from high to low. I like to see just how ridiculously expensive the first* item is. Just for some fun. Want some examples?

Headphones: HiFiMan HE1000 Open-Back Planar Magnetic Headphones ($2,368.95)

Pen: Mont Blanc Meisterstuck 149 Fountain Pen ($915)

Calculator: HP 15C Limited Edition Scientific Calculator ($695.00)

Pastels: Caran d’Ache Classic Neocolor II Water-Soluble Pastels ($1,293.97)

Scissors: ICAR 13” Tailors’ Shears/Scissors ($389.99)


*Okay, I really look at the first item that looks legit. Like, it has to have at least one review and have a “realistic” price. No billion-dollar trash cans, yo.
