Some of these surplus stores have real turkeys running them. That's why
Weird Stuff fell from glory. They always had cool stuff (they had a
couple Lisa's when I went there in 1993) but they always wanted
ridiculous prices for the crap. I mean they had stuff going for $50 that
nobody would take at a flea market for free.

Some people just have no business sense...
