    I wouldn't say 'remorse' but more of a 'hindsight is 20/20' type situation. I traded a Hunahpu for a Dark Lord and completed a 3-year DL vertical. I very glad I got to try the Dark Lords, but in hindsight would rather have my Hunahpu all day. However, if I had never made the trade, I would still want to try it and wouldn't have the hindsight...so it is what it is. Still glad I did it.

    I regret trading some beers whose value tripled shortly after I traded them :confused:

    Though to be clear, I am not at all unhappy with the trade that I made, just wish I had waited a few more weeks :p

    I don't regret anything I can think of, but sometimes I'm sad to see things go, even if it's for another bottle I really want. For example, it was tough to let go of my last BCBVS in a recent trade.
