Plastic Is Gold

What was it the guy told Dustin Hoffman's character in The Graduate? Something about having one word of advice and that was "plastic(s)"? I never saw the movie but did see that clip. I think he may have been right because it seems there is gold in plastic or if not gold then at least there is profit.

I recently bought a toy gun, made out of plastic, at auction for $6.78 plus $12.70 for a total of $19.48. I have it up for sale on an online auction and right now it has two bids, the high one is over $45.00 right now as I type. I must say, I did not know what it is worth; so with two quick bids on it already, I wonder if maybe I should not have set the buy it now price at $100 (which limits the high bid to only $100). If I am lucky it will go that high and I'll remain happy as long as I stay ignorant if it actually is worth a lot more than that. Thing was, I could not find another on the Intraweb of All Knowledge so, I just guessed at what I figured was a good buy it now price and decent starting bid (which was $30 minimum). Whatever, to tell the truth, I am already happy with the bid it has now.

All the  best,
