    Money is not a problem, I even have a friend who owns office spaces in Mountain View and would cut me a deal on rent...BUT again, I lack the knowledge. I would have to partner with somebody who knows a LOT about this hobby. As for internet retail...crap, I worry about shipping policies, arrive live warranty, etc etc. Most live suppliers I've seen online, have pretty good shipping rates and policies, still they must deal with people with false claims about mishandling/shipping, even if they're the ones who either didn't follow the seller's intructions or didn't know jack about aclimation, etc etc...

    I had a few Uncles to run several bars for yrs and I grew up and as a adult also.. The best part at 16 to 18 when I started to drive and hang out I could always get a 6 pack or 10 LOL and then the gear head friend's of mine would always pay a dollar of two more for one and High test 100 octane was just 31ct a gallon and 9.00 would fill my old big block V8 up full and and have come change LOL But during the Gas and Job Crunch during the 70's they where always full of sad people LOL.. Truth is always the funniest.. :)
