Aluminum foil is now suspected of concentrating radiation from monitors in the direction of the brain. It should be replaced with ¼-inch lead sheeting to absorb the mind-pickling rays.

Oh, and don’t forget the $160 Wattgate 381 ‘cryogenic’ duplex receptacles, and the latest NEW!!!>>> 10-2 with ground cryoe'd Romex for dedictaed lines and in-wall AC power use [at only $2.99/foot!]

Don't forget to "burn-in" those power leads with the IEC-NEMA adapter and your refrigerator or air-conditioner! [Linked Image]

Good grief, a pack of 4 banana plugs for $50, 1uF capacitors selling at $175 each -- It makes the specially treated #18 hookup wire seem like a bargain at only 99 cents per foot. I see they even have special Schuko plugs for their European suckers, er, excuse me, I mean customers.

I never realized that baloney had gotten so expensive. [Linked Image]

This is SO cool. I don't understand why it's not catching on with the other people in the office.
