    When I saw the part about El Chapo, I could not feel that if I were in any way linked to his capture, I would forever be living in fear the drug lord's henchmen would one day be rubbing me out. Don't think that would make me too happy either

    Unless you're doing them as pedals or a wireless unit.......


    As a map of the contiguous continental US it's not bad, just inaccurate in regards to the Northwest Angle. It's an interesting bit of history.

    Link was in the post right before your Alaska comment.....

    See that bit that sticks way up before coming back down and making a 90° turn straight to the west? (As straight as you can on a round Earth.). That's what I'm talking about.

    As a kid I referred to it as our state's antenna.....

    And when I hear "I listen to Led Zeppelin. I have his cd in my car." I fear for the future.

    No, it's for real, but it's just to mess with people.

    I was browsing Amazon this a.m & happened upon '14 Gibby SGJ's in the chocolate finish for $278 shipped - qty 15. I don't know what the hell I was thinking looking for reviews/specs for a few minutes. I went back & got the Amazon prompt something had been moved from my cart. Of course it was. I'm an idiot.

    If legit, expect to see them on ebay/Reverb soon. Someone could have realistically bought them all to flip at that price.

    I used to fancy myself a sharp, internet/street savy curmudgeon. I got dinged today.

    *Looking up the seller it's a scam. Too good to be true.

    I remember being a a Festival once and saw some kids who dyed their hair various bright colors.
    I said to this one guy with blue hair, " hey, your hair is Green!!!"

    You should have seen the scared look on his face as if his once blue hair had something weird happen to it

    Fireburd, I am so sorry to hear you got scammed. How did something " get moved"? I am not sure what that means.

    Were funds withdrawn, a wish list item actually purchased without your approval or what?

    No, I'd not been taken. The item was removed from my cart is all (Amazon prob flagged the seller). No big. Initially I was bummed because I thought I'd missed out, but the old adage if it's too good to be true...

    I was researching the sweet spot/reality of if they could be sold at that price.

    I completely understand your scenario now Burd.

    Glad the outcome is positive or to be technical, NON Negative.
