What is the difference between a RIP and a MEGA RIP?'

And, in WHAT TIME FRAME........a month, a year, a decade or a century?

I keep hearing about this stuff and was wondering about these definitions.

Thanks for your input.

Jon

Rip, buying something for half or less. Mega rip, buying something and making 10 times or more. Mega rips, Apple stock at 1.42, bitcoin at .13 cents etc. Geno

I went to a clearing sale once and bought a lot of 10 dial indicators for $40.
I thought I did pretty good.
Went and did the paying thing at the end and as I turned to walk away the guy asks "Don't you want the rest of them?
There was another box with about 50 more.

I thought that was a bit of a bargain at the time.

RIP ??

Perhaps but I did not actively seek it out which I think is part of the RIP term.
