haha so many views yet the time value of money is an exact science.
What is not science is the human condition always wanting something new. It's kind of like when a kid goes into a candy store, or a person of size hits the Vegas or AC buffet.
Human condition--I am sick of my 2011 335is, I can get a 2008 M3 for $145 more per month (this is a thread from the other day).
Exact science--a hybrid bus has a useful life of 12 years according to a transit authority. They don't get sick of the bus at year 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, or 18. They plan to use the bus for 20 years.
