This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.
Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.
I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.
I'm not saying NOT to sell toys, or not to profit doing so. I'm all in favor of it! I'm just saying that unless it is actually your BUSINESS to sell toys, I don't think it's the best move to expend a huge amount of your real income on them thinking that they will always give back. I've always had a big profit be a pleasant surprise. I never expect it to be a regular thing. My collection 'theme' since my nephew was born has been "make sure I get toys that can actually be played with" because he's a little boy and they are robots. "No, no, don't touch! Highly valuable collectible!" is just code for "I am an idiot with no grip on reality". MP Grimlock and Thomas the Train have gone on a few adventures together.
Also, for those who thought I was bluffing:
This is my last original G1 collection, in total. Thundercracker was my first TF ever, that I gradually broke every part on. The cassette was a gift from a lady who no longer remembers me most of the time. I'm keeping these.
