3. Military pricing.

At first I was like $75M for sand bags Then again we use a metric shit ton of sand bags every year for just about everything so no big deal. If each bag costs a $1 it seems reasonable.

Knowing how wasteful the Federal Government is, you could probably put all of them in the back of a M923.

Well since the National Guard hands out prob 2 -3 mil per flood plus add in what the .mil uses on a daily basis probably just about the right amount with some spares. Think about how many sand bags it takes to sand bag a house 2 feet in a flood. Now multiply that by thousands or 10's of thousands.

Not to mention that they are biodegradable...yea, that's right, $75M for bags deliberately designed to require replacement within a relatively short period of time.

The genius...the genius.
