check these out at ebay.com. I’m posting this on 8/08/09, and the auction says its got four days to go. I can never afford to buy these, but one of you people reading this might be rich and can. If you do, please let me publish them… please?
I’ve got no affiliation with these folks by the way, this isn’t an ad or anything.
