Default How to become a Ferengi?

I was wondering how to improve my Ferengi skills and become a true Ferengi?

How does one go about this?


*Serious Question*

Honestly it takes hours of learning and refining your skills.

I learned it by lurking the Hot Deals forums and asking questions.

Check ebay/amazon second hand stuff as well, some very nice deals there.

BTW: I use amazon only, which has some nice 2nd hand prices, one CD I really wanted was about 4.50, and I probably couldn't have found it anywhere else, damned nice.

Well if you're born Gujurati, then you're like 3/4 of the way there!! But if you're not, you have a long, hard road ahead...

True dat and remember RETAIL IS FOR SUCKERS!.

If a DVD Player is selling MSRP for $99.99 if you can't buy it for $69.99 or less then you have failed.

PM
MIR
FAR
coupon
scandle
pricing error

It's the way of life.

When you walk through a Best Buy or Circuit City and feel really sorry for everyone in the store, paying retail......you might be a Ferengi
