    But you get to hunt cheetahs and sh#t. You're totally winning that trade.

    Really. Why would you want to hunt cheetahs when you can just pick up gold nuggets and diamonds as you walk through the South African rain forest?

    Shipping beer is illegal and my Dad says you just shouldn't do it.

    Who ships beer?
    I ship collectable bottles and insert a very clear note informing my trading partners that the contents of the bottles is incidental and should not be consumed under any circumstances.

    Sometimes more doesn't necessarily = more, meaning there's basic charges for size and weight, it may be more cost effective to ship 8 beers vs say 4. And how else are you going to try beers you can't get where you live? If you like what you can get off the shelf don't trade it's simple, but most shipping for a reasonable box costs me about 18 bucks, bigger boxes maybe 21-22. I've had some really great stuff pass thru my fridge the last 3 years, cost be damned.
