What's the quote like 'the world is my storage facility'?

I read somewhere an interesting quote that was along the lines of 'the entire world is my self-storage space'. The thought went on to say something like 'Amazon.com and other retailers simply hold on to my possessions until I need them. Then I pull these items out of storage and pay a fee for the trouble of managing my inventory.' Those lines aren't verbatim, and I cannot find the quote in my browser history. Where is it from?

It's from someone on MeFi! And it was great. Let me look through my faves and see if I can find the original.

Best answer: Was it this comment by Pastabagel?

This question reminded of this great Dinosaur Comic.

this reminds me of Linus Torvalds quote about backing up his computer:

"Only wimps use tape backup: real men just upload their important stuff on ftp, and let the rest of the world mirror it"
